In Napa, CA like most of the United States, people count on their vehicles to get around. More than that, vehicles are an expression of personal taste and style and it is not unheard of for cars to have names and be almost a member of the family. Whether your car is just transportation or you have a love affair with it, it important to know what auto insurance is mandatory in the state of California. At Wine Valley Insurance Services we have a team who is prepared to make sure that you understand all there is to know about auto insurance.
Once you have paid off your auto loan, you are not required to carry comprehensive or collision insurance. Just because you don’t need to carry this valuable insurance doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t opt to carry it. Collision protects your vehicle in the event of an accident where you are at fault and will pay for repairs or replacement up to the limit of your policy. It can also protect you from an uninsured/underinsured motorist or a hit and run.
Comprehensive coverage is also known as non-collision insurance. It covers you for lots of things that can damage your car but are beyond your control. Who hasn’t had a stone fly up and crack their windshield? It also offers protection from the theft of your vehicle or vandalism. Weather events can damage your car, wind, hail, and flooding just to name a few. All of these can cause major damage to your vehicle.
If you opt-out of carrying collision and comprehensive, the cost of damage or replacement of your vehicle will fall to you.
