Looking for cheap Collision insurance in Batesville? Head towards your nearest Direct Auto & Life Insurance. While Mississippi law does not require drivers to have Collision coverage, it can still be beneficial to have. Imagine that your car runs into another object, like a tree, light post, big pothole, or guardrail. Or if it's 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 car, truck, or motorcycle 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. The Collision deductible you choose is up to you. Usually, the higher the deductible you choose, the lower your premium for Collision coverage will be.

Note that Collision coverage doesn't cover every situation that results in damage to your car. That's why Collision coverage goes hand-in-hand with Comprehensive, which has a deductible as well. If your car is damaged by a natural disaster, stolen, or vandalized, Comprehensive coverage will help pay to have your vehicle replaced or repaired. Collectively, Collision and Comprehensive are often called "full coverage." However, that terminology can be misleading and often means different things to different people. That's why we avoid using that term at Direct Auto & Life Insurance. Instead, we use the precise policy and coverage terms to help explain the coverage you have.

Do I need Collision coverage in Batesville? It's not mandated by Mississippi insurance law, but you could be required to have 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 route can be more expensive than if you purchase Collision insurance on your own. What if your vehicle isn't financed or leased? Then getting Collision coverage is your choice! Before going without it, give some thought to the age of your vehicle. How much is it worth? Would you be comfortable paying for it to be replaced or repaired on your own? If that idea troubles you, saying yes to Collision coverage and a manageable deductible might be worth it.

Did you hear? Mississippi is changing the consequences for driving uninsured. Mississippi drivers who get behind the wheel and do not have proof of insurance could have to pay a fine of up to $500 or face a driver’s license suspension for up to one year. As of September 1, 2017, the state started using an electronic insurance verification system that uses a vehicle's VIN number to spot a driver who has not purchased valid auto insurance.
