Car Registration Renewal? Secure the Right Car Insurance First

renewing car registration

Every year (for many people, within the first few months of the year), you must renew your personal vehicle’s registration with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. One of the requirements of successfully renewing your registration is securing an adequate car insurance plan. While there are many surprisingly-low-priced options for obtaining the minimum coverage necessary, you might not be doing yourself any favors by opting for the cheapest option. After all, cost-effective also means reducing your costs in the future, such as repairs and other expenses that can result from an accident. If you need a new car insurance plan before renewing your registration, or need a custom-designed policy that doesn’t burden you with excessive “miscellaneous” costs, then speak with independent insurance agent, Jeff Van Matre, today.

What You Should Consider

In Texas, limited liability coverage is the minimum amount of coverage needed to operate a personal vehicle. Such a policy will help protect a driver involved in an accident for which you are at fault by covering the costs of repairs and other relevant expenses. However, the damage that your vehicle sustains, or any injuries you acquire that need medical attention, will be solely your own financial responsibility. If your car is a newer model, and repairing it would be costly, then limited liability will not be enough to offer you the protection that your car insurance policy should provide.

Develop a Plan that Fits

Vehicle insurance isn’t merely a stepping stone to renewing your vehicle’s registration—it is the safety net that could mean the difference between an accident being an inconvenience, and an accident severely interrupting your life. Develop a plan that fits your specific needs by consulting one-on-one with an independent insurance agent. We can assess the many factors that could influence your insurance policy, such as make, model, year, and usage of our vehicle, and help you build a complete car insurance plan tailored to your needs.
