Commonly Asked Questions

Full coverage has a number of different defiinitions so be sure to clarify whenever speaking to an agent about coverages.

Typically, full coverage indicates you’ve selected coverage for your vehicle. You’ll select a deductible which represents the amount you will retain of any loss, typically $500 for Comprehensive and Collision.

Liability only indicates you’ve declined coverage for your own vehicle but wish to maintain the legally required coverage for your liability to others. No deductible applies to 3rd party coverage.

This is one of those areas where all policies are not created equal. Many policies are written so that coverage will transfer to the rental vehicle just the same as if you were driving your own car. That means if you didn’t purchase the coverage for your own car then that coverage won’t exist for a rental vehicle.

Some policies are more restrictive and won’t extend coverage to temporary vehicles. Always check your policy or call us for clarification.

Again, another example of a difference between many car insurance policies. 

Some insurance policies will allow permissive drivers to use your vehicle as long as they don’t live in the household and meet other policy requirements. 

Other policies will not provide any coverage at all unless the driver is named on the policy. 

Check your policy and check those coverages when getting a quote. We can help with that to make sure there are no surprises during a claim.

Even if you’re no longer in business, switched careers, or no longer have the policy you will still be responsible for completing audits on prior years. It’s also not nearly as bad as any other audit you’ve experienced – everything is straight-forward, and we can always provide assistance when needed.
