Choosing vehicle insurance is an important decision

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure a GMC in Fresno, insurance is mandatory in California but it also protects more than you think.

First, just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means state laws require a specific level of liability insurance in order to get the vehicle licensed. In California these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you have a loan on your car, it's guaranteed your bank will require that you buy insurance to guarantee payment of the loan. If you do not keep the policy in force, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your GMC at a more expensive rate and force you to pay for it.

Third, insurance protects not only your car but also your financial assets. It also can pay for medical expenses incurred in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also pays for attorney fees and expenses in the event you are sued. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.

The benefits of insuring your car outweigh the cost, especially with large liability claims. According to a 2015 survey, the average American driver is wasting up to $865 each year so compare quotes from several companies at every policy renewal to help ensure money is not being wasted.

  • How much can you save by raising your physical damage deductibles?
  • Is vehicle damage repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • Can you use your own choice of collision repair facility?
