Extra Features that many be available (subject to the limitations of your policy):
• There is no depreciation taken when a total loss occurs within 90 days from the time a car is purchased new.
• Rental vehicles are covered if our policy insures you as an individual and our policy insures private passenger autos and the rental vehicle is not for your regular use. The coverages extended to the rental vehicle will be the same as those provided on your insured vehicle.
• The collision deductible is waived when two Auto-Owner’s insureds collide.
• Any damage to your car caused by a collision with an animal or bird will be paid under either comprehensive or collision coverage, whichever coverage pays you the most.
• Those vehicles that have historically shown lower repair costs when involved in an accident receive premium savings on comprehensive and collision coverages.
Additionally, several other optional features can be added to your Automobile Policy, such as:
• Additional coverage for leased vehicles may be added to your policy to provide limits in excess of the actual cash value. This coverage applies if your lease agreement makes you liable for an amount greater than the actual cash value of the car at the time of a covered theft or total loss.
• Additional coverage for newly titled vehicles may be added to your policy to provide limits in excess of the actual cash value. This coverage applies if your loan amount makes you liable for an amount greater than the actual cash value of the car at the time of a covered theft or total loss.
• Utility trailers, vacation trailers, and camper bodies may be covered for physical damage.
• Motor homes, antique automobiles, motorcycles, and recreational vehicles may be covered for both liability and physical damage.
• Coverage is available on personal property stolen from your car (evidence of forcible entry required) or damaged in a collision.
• Coverage for permanently attached mobile car phones may be added to your policy.
NOTE: The above coverages or discounts may not apply in all states. Some exclusions and limitations may apply.
AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE RATES
When calculating the cost of your Automobile Insurance Premium, there are a number of variables to consider. Most insurance companies do some form of Insurance Scoring and some will surcharge on a given risk.
In the Charlotte area, if you have a decent Insurance Score, a clean driving record, and your car is not considered high-value or high-performance, your single car rate should fall between $ 450.00 – $570.00 every six months. For a two car household, the premium for both vehicles together would be in the $720.00 – $ 912.00 range every six months. In the counties and towns outside of Mecklenburg County, rates are typically reduced by approximately 15-27% dependent upon location.
Please note that the above examples are only estimates but should be fairly accurate; however, these rates may not apply for operators with less than five years of driving experience.
