Not very many of us know how to change a flat tire. Even fewer know what to do when the engine starts making loud noises and smoke starts billowing out. Could you pull your own car out of a ditch? Who would you call if you locked your keys in the car?
No one tries to get into a car crash. That is why it is called an “accident!” Yet for thousands of people every single day, it happens. Once you are sure everyone is okay and the dust has settled, you have one question on your mind “How is this going to affect my car insurance coverage?”
If you are getting ready to sign a new lease or just recently did so, you may have noticed a clause in your lease that says “Lessee is required to provide proof of renters insurance within 14 days of the lease start date.” So, what does this mean exactly?
It seems like $20 just doesn’t go as far as it used to. Nowhere is this truer than at the grocery store. While food, beverages, cleaning supplies, and other household essentials get more expensive, your weekly budget stays the same. Something has to change!
It should go without saying that the sticker price on a car isn’t the only fee to consider when purchasing a new car. You know you’ll need car insurance, of course. You’ll also need to pay for the occasional oil change or tire change.
