Auto Insurance 101 | Coverages & Discounts

We know a car isn't just a mode of transportation to get you from one place to another. In some cases, it's part of your livelihood. In others, it drops your kids off at soccer practice. It even helps haul livestock for your ranch.  Your car isn't just four wheels, some doors and an engine. It's where life happens on a daily basis. Maybe you have a farm pickup, minivan or luxury sedan. Whatever you have in the garage, auto insurance is something that will protect it. From road trips to grocery store runs, auto policies provide daily protection for you and your car. 

 

Auto policies provide protection for you and your automobile when an accident occurs. Policies cover liability, medical expense, physical damage and uninsured/underinsured motorists. But why do you need auto insurance and what do the coverages and discounts mean? AFR Insurance offers you a variety of options to fit your needs and with the help of your agent, you'll find the right coverage option to cover you and whatever life throws at you.

 

Why do you need auto Insurance?

You need auto liability insurance to comply with state laws. Driving without insurance can result in fines & possibly having your vehicle impounded. If you have a loan for your vehicle, most lenders require insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. Liability coverage pays for another party’s injury &/or property damage when you are responsible for the accident.
