What kind of insurance do I need to repair my vehicle?

Insurance is essential for protecting your finances in the event of an accident, but there are many different types of insurance with different levels of coverage. One type of insurance that is often included and over looked in auto insurance policies is comprehensive insurance. This type of insurance covers damage to your vehicle that is not caused by a collision, such as theft, vandalism, damage from a natural disaster or if you weren’t even driving the vehicle. If you have a comprehensive insurance policy, you may be able to file a claim to repair your vehicle that is not associated as a moving collision. This will not count against you, and allows you to utilize all the benefits your insurance has to offer, while also repairing your vehicle using your deductible.
