Road trips, commuting, or quick errands – Regardless of the length of the journey or where you are heading, we all spend a good amount of time driving. While in the car, even if you follow all the laws, wear a seatbelt, use your blinker, and always look before you switch lanes, accidents can still happen. In Massachusetts, having car insurance is one way of protecting yourself in case of those accidents. Encharter Insurance can help you select a policy that will fit your needs.
Here are some basic coverages you should think about for your auto insurance policy:
- Collision Coverage
- Liability Insurance
- Medical Coverage
- Comprehensive Coverage
Massachusetts requires you to have the below coverage limits for your vehicle:
- Bodily Injury to Others: $20,000 per person/$40,000 per accident
- Personal Injury Protection: $8,000
- Bodily Injury Caused by an Uninsured Motorist: $20,000 per person/$40,000 per accident
- Property Damage to Others: $5,000
However these are just the limits you are required by law – you may need even more coverage than this. Luckily for you, you can talk to your Encharter agent about the type of policy you need. Your agent might suggest MA Umbrella Insurance. This can provide you with extra coverage in case your liability were to exceed your limits.
The state requires you to have automobile insurance coverage for your vehicle, but figuring out just how much coverage is up to you. Let our agents help you figure it out, based on your vehicle, your budget, and state requirements. You never know what will happen on the road, which makes being prepared for everything essential.
The history of MA roads and vehicles may prove to be just as unique as their drivers. Check out these fun facts:
- Where is the only place in the world where a boat can sail under a train driving under a car driving under an airplane? The Boston University Bridge on Commonwealth Ave in Boston.
- In June of 1903, Massachusetts started to issue drivers licenses and registration plates.
- If you happen to travel on the Massachusetts Turnpike, you’ve seen the signs that read “x miles to Boston”. This refers to the distance from that point to the gold dome of the state house.
If you have unique needs when it comes to your car insurance, chances are good that our agents can help you with those as well. Maybe you have a classic or antique automobile, or maybe you need insurance for your RV; Give our agents a call and they can help you with an insurance policy for whatever it may be that you travel in.
