In the market for an Insurance Provider? (A Twitterer Special Report)
Posted on Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Do you own a car, van, truck or SUV? The you need auto insurance to protect your investment. In most places, it is illegal to operate a car without it. If you research all of the various options, you will be able to find coverage that you can easily afford.
Determine first just how much coverage you need. This greatly depends on the type of vehicle you drive. You’ll want full coverage on a brand new car (if you’re paying monthly installments you might be required to) or a vehicle worth more than USD $2000. However, your ten year old beater will get by with the minimum requirements. Check the rules and regulations set by the state or territory you live in.
Your driving record carries weight in calculating just how much your insurance will cost you. Past speeding tickets and accidents could result in you paying a lot more, while a good driving record will mean paying less.
Remember, it pays to shop around! Compare different companies and what they offer with the kind of insurance you need (or your state requires) before settling on a particular provider!
If you own a business, don't hesitate to get commercial coverage for your car or fleet!
Generally speaking, business car insurance is similar to personal insurance. The two policy types have much in common. A business or personal car insurance policy likely includes protection for bodily injury and property damage. Liability limits for commercial or business policies are much higher than they are for personal policies, simply because the potential for large liability expenditures is much higher in accidents involving business vehicles.
Another huge difference between business and personal auto insurance is the fact that in a business commercial auto policy, protection extends beyond the car and the driver to include the company as well. In accidents and other claim events involving commercially owned vehicles, there is always a risk for great financial liability exposure to the company. These matters are different than crashes in personal vehicles in non work-related accidents, because the driver and passengers really are not the only ones with financial interests in the matter. A claimant can make or break a company based on the presence or absence of strong business car insurance in the case.
Let's turn our attention to small business insurance. The purpose of small business insurance coverage is so that a business can transfer a risk that they can afford, for example an insurance payment once a month, for a risk they cannot afford, such as a lawsuit claim. It's a good idea to protect your business against potential problems such as theft, fire, or accidents by investing in commercial insurance. Finding business insurance shouldn't be difficult.
Insurance writer Matthew Pawlina advises "Always buy a business liability insurance policy from a reputed insurer. Always make the effort to do a background check of the insurer and ensure that they have no complaints pending at the better business bureau. Choose an insurance provider that follows fair business practices." Be sure to look for a Business Owners Policy with the assistance of a reputable insurance specialist. You may want to check with your local Better Business Bureau for recommendations.
Last, but not least, you need to have personal health insurance for yourself and other family members. Health insurance, like other forms of insurance, is a form of collectivism by means of which people collectively pool risk. Traditionally many companies offered group health insurance to their employees, but with the turbulent economy and trend toward downsizing, many companies have opted to either cut their group health insurance entirely, raise the amount of employee contributions, or switch to less expensive plans featuring more affordable group health insurance rates.
