Are you wasting money paying for full coverage?
There is no set guideline that works best for making the decision to drop comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is 10% or more of the replacement cost minus the deductible, then it might be time to buy liability only.
For example, let's pretend your Ford F-150 claim settlement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most your company would pay you is $5,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If it's costing you more than $500 a year for full coverage, then it could be time to drop full coverage.
There are some cases where dropping physical damage coverage is not a good idea. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not buy liability only.
Why you need Ford vehicle insurance in Texas
Even though it can be expensive, auto insurance serves several important purposes.
- Almost all states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry specific limits of liability protection in order to license the vehicle. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you have a loan on your Ford, almost every bank will stipulate that you have comprehensive coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If you default on your policy, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Ford at a significantly higher premium and make you pay for the expensive policy.
- Auto insurance preserves not only your Ford F-150 but also your assets. It will also provide coverage for medical transport and hospital expenses incurred in an accident. Liability insurance will also pay to defend you in the event you are sued. If damage is caused by hail or an accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay to repair the damage.
The benefits of insuring your F-150 definitely exceed the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. On average, a vehicle owner in Arlington overpays more than $750 every year so you should quote your policy with other companies at every policy renewal to save money.
What insurance coverages do you need?
Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This provides protection when the "other guys" either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle's damage.
Due to the fact that many Texas drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (which is 30/60/25), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Usually the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy's liability coverage.
Insurance for medical payments
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for dental work, hospital visits, ambulance fees and X-ray expenses. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
This can cover injuries or damage you cause to other's property or people that is your fault. Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 30/60/25 that translate to $30,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as repair bills for other people's vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects, structural damage and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it's cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible. Texas state law requires minimum liability limits of 30/60/25 but drivers should carry higher limits.
The illustration below demonstrates why low liability limits may not be adequate coverage.
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your F-150 caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims such as driving through your garage door, rolling your car, crashing into a ditch and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible on your F-150 in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for claims like falling objects, damage from getting keyed and vandalism. The maximum amount you'll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
