What is Comprehensive Coverage?

Tampa, Florida

Auto Insurance Tampa – Comprehensive coverage – sometimes called “other than collision” coverage – is very important for your vehicle in Tampa and all of Florida. If you have a loan on your car chances are your loan company will require you to hold comprehensive and collision coverage, but if you own your vehicle out right, they are not required by law and optional for you to purchase. Some examples of what Auto Insurance Tampa comprehensive coverage includes:

  • Fire
  • Weather, such as tornadoes or hail, common in Tampa
  • Flood
  • Falling objects
  • Crashes with animals, such as deer
  • Windshield repair from objects such as rocks hitting the glass
  • Vandalism and Theft

As you can tell from this wide-ranging list, it is an important coverage to keep on your vehicle. Typically, the coverage will include a deductible ranging anywhere from $100 to $2,500. The higher the deductible, the lower the cost to you each month.

As a vehicle ages it is important to check in with your coverages and make sure they are still necessary. The maximum payout on most policies for Auto Insurance Tampa Comprehensive coverage is the value of your car at the time it is either totaled or stolen, not the replacement value of a new vehicle. So, if your car’s value is low, it may not be fiscally worth it to pay an insurance premium on the comprehensive coverage plus a deductible at the time of incident for a small, or no, payout.

Like most types of coverage, it is important to speak with your local, Tampa based, licensed agent to make sure your policy is a good fit for your current Auto Insurance Tampa needs!

I would like to thank you for your assistance in placing my home owner’s coverage. I was concerned when I received a notice of non-renewal from Liberty Mutual because they are reducing their overall hurricane coverage in Florida. You and your staff were able to place my coverage at a very competitive price. Thank you for answering all my questions in such a professional matter.
