Several factors determine how much car insurance will cost, and it’s also determined by how much insurance you need. Comparison shopping makes sense. Buying the bar minimum coverage will cost less money but can leave you with inadequate coverage. Coverages such as collision and comprehensive are optional, but useful. Common financial wisdom dictates dropping collision coverage if your car is a late model vehicle. This is true because is your car that’s worth $1,800 is in a minor collision, it will actually cost more than the car is worth the repair it, so your collision coverage will pay you for the vehicle’s value (minus your deductible), and this won’t fix your car.

NJM is an excellent company to have insurance with but this company “serves only people (and their families) employed by the state of New Jersey or one of its counties, municipalities or townships, the federal government, a New Jersey public school, or an organization in the New Jersey Business & Industry Association, or who have some other eligibility factor.” I’m not sure that’s completely true, but people in this group qualify for “preferred policies.” I consider myself fortunate to have one of these policies.

Insurance is not just about cost, but about how you’ll be treated when you do have an incident requiring that you file a claim. I’ve had the unfortunate experience with having my parked vehicle hit (3 times). When the other driver had NJM, there was no problem using genuine Toyota parts. When the other party had another company, they balked at the extra $50 to replace my bumper with a genuine Toyota part. I paid the difference. NJM also has an unofficial “accident forgiveness” policy (based on my experience). The one accident I had did not increase my rates. I also think it helps when you stick with one insurance company for a long time, so that when something happens, the company knows your track record.
