Collision Coverage

Direct Locations Near You

Looking for low cost Collision coverage in Russellville? Head towards your nearest Direct Auto & Life Insurance. While Alabama law does not require drivers to have Collision coverage, it can still be beneficial to have. Let's say your car hits another object, like a tree, light post, big pothole, or guardrail. Or, it flips in an accident or is hit by a "hit and run" driver. Would you have enough money to get it fixed? After you meet your deductible, Collision insurance will pay for your motorcycle, truck, or car to be repaired or replaced.

A deductible is the amount of money you would pay out-of-pocket, up front for the damage to your vehicle. Typical deductibles range from $100 to $1,500, but they vary by state and insurance company. Your Collision deductible is completely up to you. Usually, going with a high deductible is a good way to lower your premium for Collision coverage.

Note that Collision coverage doesn't cover every situation that results in damage to your car. Collision coverage is almost always purchased alongside Comprehensive for this very reason. It also carries a deductible. If your car is stolen, vandalized, or damaged by a natural disaster, Comprehensive coverage will help pay to have your vehicle replaced or repaired. Collectively, Comprehensive and Collision are often referred to as "full coverage." However, that terminology can be misleading and often means different things to different people. At Direct Auto & Life Insurance we avoid using that term and will use the precise policy and coverage terms to describe the coverages you have.

Who needs Collision coverage in Russellville? It isn't required by Alabama insurance law, but you might be required to carry Collision insurance if your vehicle is financed or leased. If you choose not to purchase Collision, your lender might buy it for you and add it to your existing loan balance. This way can carry a higher price tag than if you bought Collision insurance on your own. What if you don't have a loan on your vehicle? Buying Collision coverage is up to you! Before going without it, though, think about the age of your vehicle and whether you would feel comfortable paying for it to be repaired or replaced out of your own pocket. If that thought worries you, getting Collision coverage and a convenient deductible could prove valuable.
