Who Has the Best Motorcycle Insurance?
Make sure you protect your ride.
Here’s how to find the best motorcycle insurance.
Whether you’re new to the #bikelife or you’ve been wearing leathers for years, your bike means a lot to you. That’s why it’s so important to keep it protected.
As with any vehicle, “protection” doesn’t just apply to regular maintenance. Having the right motorcycle insurance coverage is crucial to keeping yourself and others protected on the road.
Which leads you to the question, “Where do I find the best motorcycle insurance for me?”
In this article, we’ll give you the information you need to make decisions to ensure that your ride and your wallet stay protected.
Who Has the Best Motorcycle Insurance?
If you’re like most people, you started your quest for the best motorcycle insurance by looking at all the insurance companies who offer it and narrowing down your options.
However, we recommend you ask a different question instead: How do you define “best”?
It’s like asking for the “best color of the rainbow” or the “best taco place in Orlando.” You’re going to get a different answer depending on who you ask and what context you provide.
For instance, are you looking for something with as much coverage as possible? The lowest deductible? Are you mostly concerned with damage to your bike or injuries to other people? There are too many factors at play for any one insurance company to claim to be the “best.”
Before you can determine who has the best motorcycle insurance (for you, that is), you have to figure out what “the best coverage” means.
What Is the Best Motorcycle Insurance?
Again, that all depends on your individual needs, risk tolerance, and budget.
To help you determine the right motorcycle insurance for your needs, there are a few factors you’ll need to consider.
Motorcycle insurance is often thought of as a single thing, but it’s actually a compilation of coverage options designed to respond to different types of loss or damage.
Just like car insurance, motorcycle insurance comes in a variety of different types.
- Comprehensive & Collision
- Bodily Injury Liability
- Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
- Property Damage Liability
- Medical Payments
- Uninsured Motorist Coverage
- And More
Before you purchase a policy, it’s important to understand each form of coverage so you can make an informed decision regarding your own insurance.
In addition to the type of coverage, you also need to consider how much coverage you want.
Every insurance policy comes with a policy limit, which is the maximum amount the insurance company will reimburse you for a covered loss for each coverage included.
We consistently see people who purchased policies with low policy limits because they were distracted by the corresponding low premium amount. In most cases, these people later regret their choice of insurance when it comes time to file a claim.
We’re used to thinking about good customer service when we enter a restaurant or department store, but very few people think about how it affects their insurance experience.
Yet when it comes time to file a claim, you will be grateful for good customer support!
If you’re already dealing with bike repairs, medical appointments, and legal issues, you don’t want to add bad customer service to your list of concerns.
No one wants to pay more for insurance than they need to. But you need to consider your budget against the old adage, “You get what you pay for.”
At Harry Levine Insurance, we recommend that price should be the last thing you consider when deciding on the right insurance policy. Once you’ve determined how much insurance you need, it’s much easier to determine your budget and get the biggest bang for your buck.
