If you want to drive around Chandler, AZ with the minimum legally required insurance, you’re free to do so. But there are a lot of good reasons why you might want to pick up the phone, call San Marcos Insurance Group, and extend your coverage.
Here’s one: If your car is stolen and all you have is a liability, you’re not getting your car replaced by your insurer.
Many drivers actually don’t know this. But liability is only there to protect the other party. It saves you from bankruptcy if you are found to be at fault in an accident, but it doesn’t replace or repair your car. It does you no good if your car is stolen, either.
At a certain point, a used car might not be worth protecting with collision & comprehensive. A good rule of thumb is to check the Bluebook value, and weigh that against ten insurance payments. If the insurance payments come out to be more than the car’s total value, then you might want to drop collision & comprehensive, and just cover liability and Personal Injury Protection. But if your car still costs more than you’re willing to part with, that collision & comprehensive insurance will come in very handy.
