There are a number of factors you should consider when purchasing any product or service, and insurance is no different.
Here is a checklist of things you should consider when purchasing automobile insurance.
* First, purchase the amount of liability coverage which makes sense for you.
* Second, you should decide which optional coverages you want. For example, do you want the optional physical damage coverages in Part D or is the market value of your car too low to warrant purchasing them?
* Finally, once you have decided what you want in your automobile insurance policy, you can now decide who you would like to purchase the insurance from. For example, you may decide you like the idea of purchasing insurance from a mutual company rather than a stock company.
You should also decide whether you would like an insurance agent to assist you in your purchasing decision or if you would like to buy the insurance directly from a company that sells insurance over the phone or through the mail.
