Tips When Buying New Insurance
If you’re about to become a first time buyer or new insurance policyholder, there are some items of business to be aware of before you actually sign the paperwork. You may have been tempted to look for the lowest priced policy, which naturally translates into lower premium payments. You can purchase a good policy at a low price, but you need to check the cover and the provisions contained within the policy to see if you are getting your money’s worth.
The cost of insurance is normally proportional to the cover offered but only in a general sense, as it is always possible to find a policy that offers a given amount of coverage, but costs less than another policy offering the very same coverage. Just make sure the coverage provided in your low-priced policy will work.
The other thing to look out for is coverage you don’t need. Some policies offer grand benefits for events that rarely happen. The chance of you ever collecting $500,000 in benefits, payable in the event of an injury you may receive by being stepped on by a moose, are probably slim to none. That may be exaggerating things a bit, but it could be that you are paying a little extra for coverage you don’t want or need. If that is the case, renegotiate, or look elsewhere.
