Missouri Auto Insurance Education

What Insurance Means, Premiums and Deductibles

Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield | Missouri Auto Insurance Education | (636) 449-1213Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield is not only an insurance agency, our licensed agents care about our clients’ well-being. We provide the tools and resources necessary for consumers to receive the proper Missouri Auto Insurance Education.  Helping you understand your policy is our duty as a Trusted Choice Agent.

As part of our Missouri Auto Insurance Education, we have included the basic information about your auto insurance policy. We encourage you to schedule a free review your individual policy for specific details on coverages, terms, limits, conditions, and exclusions.

Foundation of Missouri Auto Insurance

An insurance policy is a contract between a policy holder and an insurance company.  All policies are unilateral in that the policy holder pays the insurance company a premium. The purpose of an auto insurance policy is to make one whole, or return the policy holder back to their original condition prior to a covered financial loss.  For example: you own a 2015 vehicle with actual cash value of $20,000 and the car was totaled by a covered peril.  The recovery amount is limited to the amount of the actual loss incurred, and not the actual cash value – or replacement cost less depreciation.

Laws and Regulations

Missouri law requires motorists to have auto insurance.  No owner of a motor vehicle registered in Missouri may operate, register, or maintain registration of a motor vehicle, or permit another person to operate the vehicle, unless the owner maintains the required liability coverage.

* Proof of insurance shall be carried in the insured motor vehicle at all times. *

Missouri law requires all drivers to carry some types of coverage – at least state minimum – in the amount of $25,000 because of bodily injury to or death of 1 person in any 1 accident and, subject to the limit for 1 person, $50,000 because of bodily injury to or death of 2 or more persons in any 1 accident, and $10,000 because of injury to or destruction of property of others in any 1 accident.

The Missouri Auto Insurance Policy

There are 6 primary components to your auto insurance policy and our licensed agents can help you determine the best coverages you need for your situation with a price that meets your budget.  For example: if you have 2 teenage drivers on your policy and own a $500,000 home – we would recommend enough coverage for a loss up to $500,000 so that your mortgage is covered in case of loss.

Liability Insurance protects you, the insured/policy holder, against a claim made by another party, and covers the insured’s legal responsibility to body and property damage.

  • Bodily injury liability (BI) insurance covers you if you cause an accident in which someone else is injured. Your policy is designed to pay claims for each person injured in an accident, and limits the total paid per occurrence.
  • Property damage liability (PD) insurance covers you when you damage someone else’s property. For example, your property damage will pay out when you are at fault for an accident that causes damage to someone else’s car.
  • Collision insurance pays for damage to your car if you run into another object. This coverage is not required by law, although your bank may require it if you have a lien on your car. This is commonly known as “full coverage”.
  • Comprehensive insurance covers you in case your car is damaged other than a collision. The covered perils include hail, fire, theft, flood, earthquake, explosion, falling objects, and encounters with wildlife, such as deer. Comprehensive is optional coverage and you may choose your deductible amount.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance covers your expenses when you are hit by a driver who does not carry adequate, if any, auto insurance. Our agents always recommend carrying uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance so that you are not left with a financial loss because of someone else’s negligence to carry auto insurance.
  • Medical insurance coverage (Med Pay/MPC) acts as primary coverage for medical expenses you and your passengers incur if injured in a motor vehicle accident, regardless who’s at fault. Med pay can help you pay your bills as soon as they are incurred.

Cost of Missouri Auto Insurance

Insurance premiums are determined by the statistics of a large group of people who share the same risk. Many factors can affect your premium, and they all help determine how likely you are to have an accident.  Click here for more information from the Insurance Information Institute.  Some of the factors that will be used to determine the cost of insurance can include your driving record, how much you drive, your age, the type of car you drive, etc.  Insurance companies obtain the ratio of exposure by analyzing industry activities and driver statistics.  For example: if you live in an area where the average age of drivers is 45 years and they have decent driving records; the risk is slim, therefore calculating a lower premium.  It’s not that simple, but you get the idea.

Missouri Auto Insurance Deductibles

A deductible for an auto insurance policy is the amount of money you agree to pay for damages before the insurance company provides payment towards the damage/loss.  Choosing a higher deductible means there is less risk of a payout for the insurance company, and so you may pay smaller premiums.  Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield can help you make an informed decision on how to choose your deductible. Everyone’s situation is different and we understand some may be able to afford a larger deductible, others may not.

Tow Truck Insurance Chesterfield Missouri

Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield — Your Towing Insurance Experts!

Tow Truck Insurance Chesterfield Missouri | Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield | (636) 449-1213STOP SEARCHING for Tow Truck Insurance Chesterfield Missouri! Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield has agents who specialize in Transportation Insurance Services, and they know almost as much about your business as you do.  Our agents have relationships with many Missouri Transportation Insurance Carriers, which allows us to shop Towing insurance for you and customize your policy to meet your needs.

Tow truck owners who do not carry insurance are taking a huge risk.  If you are involved in an accident and the vehicle you are towing skids into another vehicle, you would be responsible for paying medical expenses and property damages related to the accident. Accidents Happen and That is Why it is SO Important to Protect Your Livelihood.

Bodily Injury and Property Damage Coverages are standard forms of liability insurance that all motor vehicle owners are required to carry by Missouri law. Tow truck service companies and individual owner operators MUST carry tow truck insurance. Failure to keep the minimum insurance requirements on your tow truck could result in fines and/or you could have your commercial driver’s license suspended. Additionally, you could be responsible for property and bodily injury damages that exceed the amount of insurance your policy will pay.

The Basic Commercial Auto Coverages include the following:

  1. Bodily Injury protects you in case you cause an accident in which another person is injured. It covers the damages that you’re legally responsible for, and provides a legal defense if someone sues you for damages.
  2. Property Damage covers your legal responsibility for damages to the property of others caused by collision with your car. In an accident, the “property of others” is usually another car, but it also covers damage to public and private property such as road signs, bridges or buildings, up to the limits written into the policy.
  3. Fire and Theft Coverage provides protection for your vehicle in case it is damaged by specific, non-collision incidents. Specific circumstances include fire, theft, windstorm or hail, earthquake, lightning, flood, vandalism and collision with an animal.
  4. Collision and Comprehensive Coverage insurance protects you if your tow truck is damaged due to a non-auto accident related event. Comprehensive insurance, as well as fire and theft insurance, would protect you if your tow truck was stolen or damaged due to a fire.
  5. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage protects you in the event that you or your tow truck incur damages caused by another driver who did not have enough, or any, auto insurance to cover the damages that were made to you or to your tow truck.

Our agents will work directly with a variety of tow truck service companies who are required to carry Tow Truck Insurance Chesterfield Missouri.  These tow truck service providers include:

  • Auto Salvage Companies
  • Auto Club Contractors
  • Rotational Towing
  • Auto Repair Shops
  • Auto Body Shops
  • Car Dealerships
  • Police Towing and Impound Lots
  • And More! – Give us a call and ask!

Be Aware That Not All Tow Truck Insurance is the Same!

Missouri tow truck insurance coverage options vary among Insurance Carriers, so it is important that you work with a licensed agent that represents multiple, top-rated Transportation Insurance Companies.  With access to multiple carriers, Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield can customize your Business Auto and Legal Liability policies to fit your Towing Service business needs.

Just a Few of the Tow Truck Insurance Options Include:

On-Hook Towing InsuranceTow Truck Insurance Chesterfield Missouri | Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield | (636) 449-1213

This coverage will help pay for damages to vehicles you are towing.  The on-hook coverage is generally provided by the garage keepers’ legal liability (GKLL) endorsement (see below). The GKLL limit is a blanket limit that applies to all towing vehicles on the policy.

Garage Keepers Legal Liability Insurance

This will cover vehicles you are storing for clients.  The GLL insurance is usually provided as an automatic endorsement that is added to the Business Auto coverage. This liability coverage covers loss of, or physical damage to vehicles being towed, and while in your care, custody, or control and is designed for towing and wrecker service businesses.  As mentioned above, the on-hook coverage of garage keepers’ legal liability insurance provides coverage for a non-owned vehicle that you are towing.

Miscellaneous Property Floater

A miscellaneous property floater covers your business personal property that is in transit such as tools and other cargo that you have in your tow truck. This coverage will protect against risks of direct physical loss or damage to your scheduled covered property.

Tow Truck Insurance Chesterfield Missouri | Alternatives Insurance of Chesterfield | (636) 449-1213Motor Truck Cargo Insurance

Motor Truck Cargo insurance is provided via an endorsement to insure items other than motor vehicles licensed for road use.  This coverage provides legal liability for towing companies while transporting property (cargo) of others.  Since the towing operator is seen as a common carrier, they are responsible for the safe delivery of the goods they are transporting (customer’s vehicles and the contents of the vehicle), and thus owe a very high degree of care to their customer.

Business Income & Extra Expense Insurance

Business income insurance & expense coverages will reimburse your towing business for loss of income and profits if your property is damaged from a covered peril and out-of-service.  The coverage continues until the property can be restored or replaced, or until the limit has been reached. The extra expense coverage includes extra expenses that business must make during the time of loss such as rent, mortgage payments, taxes, and utility services.
