You’ve got to have it—now what?
You’re required by law to carry auto insurance. So you may not think it makes a difference if you get it from a talking lizard, a comic spokesperson, or a locally owned insurance provider like Cheney Insurance.
If all insurance is alike, what difference does it make where you get your coverage—just shop around for the best price, right?
There is a Difference
At Cheney Insurance we’ve seen our share of accidents. But out of all the claims we see on a daily basis, few are as frequent, or as potentially life changing, as accidents involving an automobile.
We understand that cost is a factor and our agents will work to meet your coverage and price needs.
While most insurance products are similar in price and overall function, insurance providers are very different when it comes to structuring a policy that actually covers you.
(For example: making sure you have maximum medical coverage in case you hurt someone else; or making sure you’re not overpaying for duplicate medical coverage you already have; or whether you want access to a rental car while your car is in the shop.)
We’re your neighbors. We protect people we know and care about, and that means we always look for ways to protect you better, including carefully choosing the insurance companies we represent to be both affordable and responsive.
What’s insurance for, anyway?
Keep in mind that you can’t buy insurance after you have an accident. Therefore, you should think carefully about the position you want to be in if you should ever be in an accident.
This means you should try to think of your auto insurance as a shield.
Then imagine someone else driving their car right into that shield.
Will it hold?
Our main job is to make sure your shield can withstand as much damage as possible for the most reasonable cost. That means you won’t have to pay out of pocket for repairs or expenses, but it also means making sure your assets and income are protected in case you’re at fault and there’s a lawsuit.
That means, we’ll show you all of your protection options, recommend the right limits and make sure you receive every discount you’re entitled to (such as cars with daytime running lights; better yet, bundling other types of insurance with the same carrier).
And that’s just one reason you should consider talking to a real person at our Damariscotta office, instead of a telephone salesperson working for a cartoon reptile.
What auto insurance covers—and what’s optional…
Insurance protects you and your assets in case of loss, injury or damage; either caused by you, or by someone else. Auto insurance usually consists of the following protections:
- Liability – in case you are found at fault
- Collision – in the event of your car is damaged by a collision
- Comprehensive – if your car is damaged by anything other than collision
But additional protection may include:
- Medical Payments – if you have to pay on an injury for yourself or a passenger
- Emergency Road Service – if you are ever stranded in your vehicle
- Uninsured Motorist Protection – because even though the law says auto insurance is mandatory, that doesn’t mean that everyone will have it.
There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all insurance policy.
