  • Auto insurance for recreational vehicles and trailers

    by Hayden Krueger

    Recreational vehicles are of different types. They could include snow mobiles, bikes, water scooters, and the like. But the acronym RV stands for recreational vehicles which generally include trailers, caravans and homes on wheels. But mostly they are simply trailers attached to a conventional car. We shall discuss auto insurance policies for the trailers and the car taken together as an entity.

    It is more expensive to insure an RV than it is going to be for a normal car. This is because RV’s are inherently unstable due to their large size and length. If it is a trailer, it is going to be attached behind the car. And in this situation, it will not have a steering mechanism. It will sway around at corners and there is the possibility that the trailer might hit some other vehicle or stationary object. There is also the possibility that the trailer may … Click here to read more

  • The need for monthly auto insurance

    by Hayden Krueger

    Most people can’t afford to make one huge lump sum payment towards their auto insurance premium and find it really difficult to save up and even take small loans from friends and colleagues to make payments in one go. Auto insurance companies saw this as an opportunity to provide their customers with a monthly payment plan, at a price needless to say. The customer doesn’t make a one time payment and instead makes one down payment and either, 3, 6 or 12 monthly payments as the case may be. The insurance company charges the customers a rate of interest as the case may be, not all companies charge an interest. 

    How it works 

    The customer can either opt for a yearly cover wherein he or she would need to make payments for the next twelve months, or else a customer can also take it on a “pay as you go” … Click here to read more

    by Hayden Krueger

    The first step to getting your teen insurance is to involve them in the procedure and teach them how to start from scratch.

Get your teen to help you to find a comparison site online and get multiple quotes.

If your teen drives a minimum amount you can expect a reduction in your premium since the less time your teen spends on the road, the less … Click here to read more

  • Recommended auto insurance cover and extent of cover for your need

    by Hayden Krueger

    There are various reasons to purchase insurance apart from the obvious reason to keep your vehicle road legal. A good insurance policy can protect you from massive losses in the event of an accident and also protect you from the trials and tribulations of legal hassles; insurance companies also assist you in lawsuits that arise from a car crash. 

    Custom made insurance policies 

    The trust is no two individuals are alike, and no two individuals have the same needs as another person. Everyone needs basic insurance, but what about the cover, the extent of cover, deductibles and discounts?  Insurance companies serve you bulk plans based on your rough usage pattern and your vehicle type; however this is rarely enough.  Most people realize that they don’t have the right insurance plan when it’s too late, after an accident. No professional can custom build the right plan for you, you either need … Click here to read more
