Need cheap Comprehensive car insurance in Columbus? Head towards your nearest Direct Auto & Life Insurance. Comprehensive coverage may not be required by Mississippi law, but it can be extremely helpful if you run into trouble while driving. It will help pay for auto repairs that resulted from an event other than a collision. That's why you might hear your insurance agent refer to it as, "Other than Collision Coverage." Imagine that your car is stolen, vandalized, damaged by a natural disaster, or damaged by contact with an animal. How hard would it be for you to pay to get it repaired or replaced? No need to worry when you have Comprehensive coverage. Once you meet your deductible, Comprehensive coverage will help pay for your truck, car, or motorcycle to be repaired or replaced.

What is a deductible? A deductible is the amount of money you have to pay toward repairs before your insurance covers the rest. Standard deductibles are between $100 and $1,500, though they vary by insurance company and state. The Comprehensive deductible you choose is up to you. In general, the higher the deductible you choose, the lower your premium for Comprehensive coverage will be.

Keep in mind that Comprehensive insurance won't pay for all types of damages to your vehicle. That's why Comprehensive coverage is almost always paired with Collision, which also has a deductible. Collision helps pay for your vehicle to be repaired after it hits another object, like a stop sign, tree, or guardrail. Or, it flips in an accident or is hit by a "hit and run" driver. When combined, Collision and Comprehensive are often called "full coverage."

Do I need Comprehensive coverage in Columbus? Mississippi insurance law doesn't mandate it, but you may be required to carry Comprehensive coverage if you're leasing or financing your car. If you decide not to get Comprehensive, 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 Comprehensive car insurance on your own. What if your vehicle isn't financed or leased? Then getting Comprehensive 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 thought gives you instant anxiety, getting Comprehensive insurance and a workable deductible may be worthwhile.

Did you hear? Mississippi is cracking down on driving uninsured. If you get behind the wheel and do not have proof of insurance, you could run into a fine of up to $500 or a suspended driver's license for up to one year. Effective September 1, 2017, Mississippi put into place a new insurance verification program that uses a vehicle's VIN number to spot a driver who has not purchased valid auto insurance.
