Auto Insurance Necessary to Protect Against Storm Damage

Atlantic coastal region Those living in the Atlantic coastal region should take note that carrying auto insurance coverage can protect their vehicle against storm damage.

With Atlantic hurricane season in full swing, consumers should be aware that natural disasters can cause a significant amount of damage to a person’s vehicle. Without proper coverage, storm damage could not only destroy a car but also take a toll on a consumer’s wallet.

To ensure a person’s auto policy covers storm damage, a driver should make sure they have comprehensive coverage, Washington state NBC news affiliate KNDO/KNDU said. This will pay for expenses associated with an incident that is not a collision. Drivers should also consider having rental reimbursement in the event another vehicle is needed.

In addition to having proper coverage, there are other steps consumers should take. Keep photos of the vehicle with the insurance information the news station said. These pictures and papers should be kept in a waterproof case.

When moving to a new area, all drivers should look into what kinds of natural disasters are likely to occur there. This will be helpful when discussing types of coverage with an insurance agent to protect against certain perils.ADNFCR-3298-ID-19833439-ADNFCR
