Riding a motorcycle is completely different to driving a car. Your insurance needs will be different as well. We have outlined a few key tips to make sure you have proper coverage for your motorcycle.
Verify your policy. Make sure your coverage is limited. Some companies have a winter layaway period where some policies are restricted. You will want to contact your insurance company to make sure you are not limited in any area during any particular season such as winter.
Always choose the fully comprehensive policy. If you are ever involved in an accident that causes harm to someone else or someone else's property, you could be in for a big payment. If you have a good number of assets you will want to protect them. .
Are you interested in custom parts? If you want your insurance to pay for special additions to your motorcycle you will need to have added coverage. Special additions can include fancy rims, custom paint jobs, saddlebags, or chrome plating.
Is your bike restricted? Let your insurance company know as this can cause your premium to plummet in price do to the bike not giving the full output.
What are your rates? Make sure you shop around for the best rates. Consider contacting at least 3 insurance companies and see what they can offer you for the coverage you need.
This is the same for any type of insurance. Some companies can be significantly higher than others so it is worth your time to shop around. It's also worth while haggling over price. Nearly all insurance companies have a discount range that they can stretch to.
Is the company knowledgeable? You don't want a company that hasn't dealt specifically with motorcycle insurance.
Like I said in the beginning paragraph, driving a motorcycle is different from driving a car. So your insurance needs will be different too. Make sure the company is experienced in handling motorcycle or scooter insurance and claims.
There are many sites online today that can help you find the right company. You can literally get a quote in minutes after filling out information on how much coverage you are looking for and what type of motorcycle you own.
If you find a company you like there is always a phone number provided. Give the company a call. Some companies even have a live operator available to answer your questions through chatting (kind of like having an Instant messaging conversation).
