Buy a “Bargain” Policy Now and You Could Pay Later

Buy NowAlmost every auto insurance commercial on TV claims to save you money.  With the focus on price alone, one would think all insurance policies are created equal.  They most definitely are not!

I recently read an article about a claim where an insured’s vehicle had been stolen.  Upon discovering the vehicle was unlocked and the keys had been left inside by the car owner, the claims adjuster denied the claim.  This insured’s auto policy did not cover theft if there was no sign of forcible entry to gain access to the vehicle and/or ignition system.

While the insured was extremely careless in leaving both his vehicle unlocked and the keys inside, most personal auto policies issued by standard companies would provide coverage, subject to policy exclusions including intentional acts.  In this case though, the customer had opted for a nonstandard policy in return for a cheaper price.  No doubt this was a hard lesson to learn, but a perfect example of “getting what you pay for.”

While TV commercials will try to convince you buying an insurance policy is as easy as shopping online for the best deal, it’s not.  With so many coverage options, it’s best to talk with a trusted advisor who can help you select the right policy to meet your needs.  Contact your local independent agent to get started.

Not all insurance policies or companies are created equal.  If an insurance company can you save you hundreds of dollars simply by switching to them, question what you’re getting in return.  What kind of coverage are you buying?  Can you call and speak to a real person when you have a question or a claim?  Peace of mind is priceless, isn’t it?

  4. Sorry, I pay top dollar for my policy and have not been taken care of yet! This has dragged on since Feb 6th, and is still not settled. I have wasted weeks with this issue, taking me away from my business. Worst company ever! The estimator took an entire week to view my damages, then the adjustor demanded that I accept her low ball offer wiht in hours, and when I didnlt, she cancelled my rental. Still fighting and done with the whole Intergity, HOensty, etc, they claim to be their corporate policy. NOT AT ALL HONEST!

    issues. Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, excellent site!
