If you’re getting car insurance, you might be a little overwhelmed by all the choices you have to make. Sure, you might just want the entire ordeal to be over with. You might be tempted to be haphazard about choosing your coverages. But it’s important to know how each of these coverages protects you (believe it or not, these coverages are more than just money flying out of your wallet.) Here are 6 car insurance coverages explained in simple, bite-sized pieces.
There’s an important question you have to ask yourself when you’re thinking about your car insurance. What do you want your insurance to cover if something happens to your vehicle? (For example, if you’re in a car accident. If a tree falls on your car. If your car is stolen.) Chances are you’d want it to cover everything – especially theft, which is a huge loss since your car is kind of…gone. So that begs another question: will car insurance cover you if your car is stolen?
It’s a good question. We’ll explain when car insurance covers theft and how to make sure you’re covered.
Buying a new car is exciting. It’s easy to spend hours daydreaming about make, model, and accessories. And of course, there’s that new car smell. But there’s an important catch when you buy a new vehicle – the value depreciates the second you leave the dealer’s lot. It’s an unfortunate reality that all car owners have to face. But it’s a reality that can be managed with a type of car insurance called gap insurance.
Wondering what that is? Great – we’re going to explain what gap insurance is and whether or not you actually need it.
Sometimes we run into bad luck. Running a tow truck business, you know that anything can happen – you face a lot of risks, and sometimes those risks catch up with you. Tow truck insurance exists to help your business out of tight spots and protect your towing operation, but there are a lot of coverages out there that you ought to consider before being satisfied that your business is protected from anything the road can throw at you (or any trees that could fall on your tow trucks – we’ll explain in a second.) One of those coverages is physical damage coverage. We’ll explain what physical damage coverage is and how it can protect your business.
If you’ve ever had to get auto insurance, you might have noticed that there are an awful lot of coverages out there for cars.

There are quite a few choices you have to make when it comes to insuring your vehicle. A couple of the coverages you may have noticed are collision coverage and comprehensive coverage. We’ll explain what those are and how they can protect you.
