Will Car Transport Be Covered With Insurance?
You have to be very careful when it comes to cargo insurance. On the downside, insurance does cause the cost of moving your vehicle from point A to point B to jump up. Don’t ever hire somebody who can’t give you a certificate of insurance. You don’t need the unnecessary problem when there are literally hundreds of companies out there that incorporate insurance into the costing.
Also, read the fine print. There might be instances when the auto transport company’s insurance coverage will not extend toward unforeseen circumstances like national disasters. But some doesn’t make a distinction. If the vehicle is damaged at any point during the transport, they will claim responsibility for it and shoulder all the costs of repair. States typically mandates liability insurance from trucking and transportation companies. Apparently, cargo insurance may not be required by some states. This is why you need to inquire if in the case of hales or tornadoes and your car is damaged, will insurance cover that?
Speaking of insurance, make sure you are not going to be underinsured. Putting a cap on the amount to be paid by insurance is an industry-wide practice. Of course, comprehensive insurance costs so much and that might jack up prices. Maximum payment coverage, however, is different from underinsurance. The latter is very risky for you, especially if the damage is quite substantial, which could mean bigger out-of-pocket expenses.
