Is it necessary for you to keep your auto insurance even when you have your vehicle in storage? You aren’t required to have insurance on your automobile in the state of Arizona while it’s being stored though you may want to continue it through these months and make some adjustments. An independent agent at San Marcos Insurance Group of the Chandler, AZ area can assist you.
Change in Your Coverage
If you only drive your car or truck part of the year or have some reason you’re not going to be driving it for a while you should look into making a switch to storage coverage instead of your standard policies. Most companies will drop the collision and liability coverage so that you’ll only have comprehensive coverage.
When using storage coverage, you’d be keeping your vehicle off the street in one place, typically a locked garage. When you have this type of coverage, it should make your premium drop significantly. It applies when it comes to instances such as a vehicle that’s not used regularly, one that’s in need of repair, or if it’s owned by a military member who’s deployed. You’d still have many of the same benefits. It also helps you maintain insurance history so that there won’t be any problems where it’s considered a lapse.
This can be a tricky matter when it comes to some state’s vehicle registration laws. Your best bet for this situation is to cancel registration for the vehicle (which makes sense if you won’t be using it for a long time) and make sure that it remains off the road.
