Q: When I am removing a vehicle from my insurance policy, what should be done with the vehicle's license plates?

A: You must turn your plates into the Department of Motor Vehicles. You will then get a receipt called a FS6T. This you need to give to your insurance agency as proof that the vehicle is off the road. At this time your coverage can be cancelled.

 

Q: May I pay on my premium after the premium due date?

A: Yes, you have a grace period of approximately five days depending on the insurance company, however there may be a late fee charged.

 

Q: When renting a vehicle, should I buy the insurance coverage offered by the car rental company?

A: If you have automobile insurance protection on your personal vehicles, you do not need to buy extra coverage.

 

Q: If my car is in the shop for mechanical repairs, and I need to rent a temporary vehicle, does my auto policy's rental car reimbursement coverage cover this?

A: Rental Car Reimbursement Coverage, if purchased, is only for vehicles that have been in an accident, not for cars experiencing mechanical failure.

 

Q: When my child gets his/her driver's license must I add him/her to my insurance policy?

A: Yes. All licensed drivers living in the household need to be listed on that auto policy unless they have their own auto insurance elsewhere.

 

Q: If a tree falls on my property but does not damage anything, is there coverage to have the tree removed?

A: No, not on an unendorsed home owners' insurance policy. There are endorsements available that would include this kind of coverage, up to a certain limit, depending on the insurance carrier.

 

Q: Is there a discount for having both home and auto insurance coverage with us?

A: Yes, if the coverage is with the same carrier. This discount would apply to both policies.

 

Q: If I don't receive my bill, can you tell me how much I owe?
