Why it’s Important to Evaluate Your Auto Insurance

Nobody likes paying insurance premiums, especially when you find out that you don’t have the right coverage when you need it.

Imagine this: After a long day at work, you drive home on an unusually stormy Nevada day and think “I haven’t seen this much rain in years.” Then you get home and find that fierce winds have knocked down that towering pine in your front yard onto your other car, leaving you with a wreck and large headache.  Will your insurance cover that damage?

This story is not as imaginary as you may think. Northern Nevada is home to high winds and unpredictable weather, as we all know with the recent floods and storms. And all this activity is a good reminder to carefully evaluate your insurance coverage options. Below are some things you should take into consideration when reviewing your vehicle insurance.

We’ll look at these three areas to see how to declutter.
