  • New Car Discount – Buying coverage on a new vehicle is cheaper compared to insuring an older model.
  • Early Signing – Some insurance companies reward drivers for buying a policy prior to your current policy expiring. This can save 10% or more.
  • E-sign – A few companies will give a small break simply for signing online.
  • No Claims – Claim-free drivers can save substantially when compared to accident-prone drivers.

Detailed coverages of your insurance policy

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your BMW ALPINA B7.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Usually these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses such as hospital visits, rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses, surgery and EMT expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as falling objects, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, rock chips in glass, vandalism and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision insurance

This coverage will pay to fix damage to your ALPINA B7 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against things like hitting a parking meter, rolling your car and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have policy limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services, pain and suffering, emergency aid and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
