Need low cost Collision coverage in Dayton? 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. Imagine that your car runs into another object, like a stop sign, tree, guardrail, or pothole. Or, it flips in an accident or is hit by a "hit and run" driver. Could you pay to have it repaired? 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 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 Collision deductible you choose is up to you. Generally speaking, the higher the deductible, the lower the premium for Collision.

Remember that Collision coverage does not cover every situation that leads to damage to your vehicle. That's why Collision coverage goes hand-in-hand with Comprehensive, which has a deductible as well. If your car is vandalized, damaged by a natural disaster, or stolen, Comprehensive coverage will help pay for your vehicle to be repaired or replaced. 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. 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.

No car loan? Buying Collision coverage is up to you! Before nixing it, give some thought to the age of your car and whether you'd be able to pay for repairs or replacement out of your own pocket.

Tennessee drivers caught driving without the proper insurance could face a fine of $300. The police could have your auto immediately towed if proof of valid insurance is not produced. On January 1, 2017, the state of Tennessee put into place a new online insurance verification program. The system can track down drivers who have not purchased valid insurance through their vehicle registration information. If a vehicle is identified as having an uninsured owner, the owner will not be able to renew their vehicle's registration.
