Need affordable Collision insurance in Bolivar? Look no further than your nearby Direct Auto & Life Insurance. Collision coverage may not be required by Tennessee law, but it can be extremely helpful when run into trouble while driving. 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. Could you pay to have it repaired? Meet your deductible and then your Collision coverage will kick in to help 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. Standard deductibles are between $100 and $1,500, though they vary by insurance company and state. Your Collision deductible amount is your choice. Generally speaking, the higher the deductible you choose, the lower your premium for Collision coverage will be.
Note that Collision coverage does not cover every situation that leads to damage to your vehicle. Collision coverage is almost always purchased alongside Comprehensive for this very reason. It also carries a deductible. If your car is vandalized, damaged by a natural disaster, or stolen, Comprehensive coverage will help cover the cost of having your car replaced or repaired. Together, Collision and Comprehensive are often called "full coverage." However, that phrase is confusing and 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.
