Collision Coverage

Direct Locations Near You

Need cheap Collision insurance in Dalton? Come to your nearby Direct Auto Insurance. While Georgia law does not require drivers to have Collision coverage, it can still be beneficial to have. Imagine that your car runs into another object, like a guardrail, tree, street light, or pothole. Or if it flips in an accident! Could you pay to have it repaired? Meet your deductible and then your Collision coverage will kick in to help pay for your car, truck, or motorcycle to be repaired or replaced.

A car insurance deductible is what you pay to repair your car if you have an accident or claim. Typical deductibles range from $100 to $1,500, but they vary by state and insurance company. Your Collision deductible is completely up to you. Generally speaking, the higher the deductible, the lower the premium for Collision.

Note that Collision coverage doesn't cover every situation that results in damage to your car. That's why Collision coverage goes hand-in-hand with Comprehensive, which has a deductible as well. If your car is stolen, vandalized, or damaged by a natural disaster, Comprehensive coverage will help cover the cost of having your car replaced or repaired. Collectively, Comprehensive and Collision are often referred to as "full coverage." However, that phrase is confusing and means different things to different people. We avoid using that term at Direct Auto Insurance, and choose to use the precise policy and coverage terms to explain your coverages.

Who needs Collision coverage in Dalton? It isn't required by Georgia insurance law, but you may be required to carry Collision coverage [marketing-content-p4-3] but you could be required to have Collision insurance if you're leasing or financing your car. If you don't buy Collision, your lender might buy it for you and add it to your existing loan balance. This way can be pricier than if you buy Collision coverage on your own. What if you don't have a loan on your vehicle? Then getting Collision coverage is your choice! Before going without it, though, think about the age of your vehicle and whether you would feel comfortable paying for it to be repaired or replaced out of your own pocket. If that thought gives you instant anxiety, saying yes to Collision coverage and a workable deductible may be worthwhile.
