Latham, Albany & New York Car Insurance

This presents a problem for people with good auto driving records because it’s YOU who share in these increased costs for car insurance in New York. Even though you are not contributing to the costs and dutifully paying your premiums on time, all the time.

Don't Let Tiers Cause You Tears
If you’ve been with the same insurance company for some time it can really pay to get a quote now. All NY auto insurance customers are rated on Tiers. Of course, bad tiers generate high premiums, mid tiers give middle premiums and so on. The thing is, you can get stuck on that bad or middle tier for the duration of your policy even if factors such as your credit, accidents, tickets, age, etc, have improved, meaning you are paying more than you should be.
Getting a new quote with improved rating factors will push you up to a higher tier and lower resulting premiums.
Another thing most people don’t realize is that insurance company rates cycle up and down over time and within those cycles introduce new programs that rate fantastic, especially for people with good credit and good driving history. The key is to utilize an agency that has these companies and also manually quotes with the right ones while maximizing available discounts, and that is what we do.

Auto Insurance Coverage options in Latham, Albany & New York:
Collision and comprehensive (other than collision) coverages
Collision and Comprehensive (other than collision) coverages pay for damage to your automobile. You can purchase either or both of these coverages for each vehicle you own. If you have an auto loan you may be required to purchase both.
- Collision coverage insures you against damage to your vehicle caused during an accident.
- Comprehensive (other than collision) coverage insures you against all other physical damage to your car caused by such events as fire, theft, flood, and vandalism.
Collision and comprehensive (other than collision) coverage usually includes a deductible, which can range from $100 to $1,000. If your car is damaged, the Insurance company pays only for the damage in excess of the deductible you selected. The higher the deductible, the lower the premium.
Liability coverage pays for injuries you cause to other people and damage you cause to other people’s property when you are at fault in an automobile accident.
Medical Payments coverage
Medical Payments coverage pays medical expenses (up to a specified dollar limit) for you and passengers of your car who are injured in an automobile accident, no matter who is at fault. If you and your passengers have health Insurance, you may not need this coverage.
Personal Injury Protection
Some states require Personal Injury Protection, which is also known as No-Fault coverage. This coverage pays for things like medical and rehabilitative expenses, replacement services, and funeral expenses. It also pays for loss of income if you are injured in an auto accident and are unable to work.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage
This coverage pays if you are injured by a person who is completely uninsured or doesn’t have enough liability Insurance to cover your injuries. It also covers you if you are in an accident with a hit-and-run driver.
Optional or special coverage includes extras such as towing, rental reimbursement, and roadside assistance. None of these coverages are required.
How much do I need?
Choosing the appropriate level of auto Insurance coverage depends on a number of factors, including assets you must protect (liability coverage), value of your vehicle (collision and comprehensive), the amount of money you can afford to pay out-of-pocket (deductibles), and your tolerance for risk.
