You might also hear the term Gap Insurance. This isn’t a coverage offered by Farmers — in fact, it’s most frequently sold by car dealers during the purchase process. What gap insurance covers is the difference between the amount you owe on your car and its value in the event of a total loss. It’s worth your consideration when you borrow more than a car is worth. 

Car Storage

Working on a classic car or have a special car you only occasionally drive?  Maybe your child left their car home while they were in college?  You can put that car in Storage (meaning you don't need full coverage on it- it's never driven)  We can add Comprehensive on it with a $1000.00 deductible so that its covered if a tree or hail damage it. 

Want to take it out for a week or so?  No problem,  you may take it out of storage two times in a 6 month period.   Just give us a call and we will take it out of storage and add full coverage on it until your ready to put it back in storage, This is great for kids in college that leave their car home or if you have a car you are rebuilding and only occasionally need to drive it until its ready to hit the road full time.  This will keep your car insured, but while in storage and not be driven on a regular basis will save you a big discount on your insurance.

Not sure what all you need?   We are here to help you decide what extras are good for you and your family. We can see what kind of cars you drive to see if Original Equipment is for you, If you have more than 3 cars, maybe you don't need rental.  These are all things we can discuss what's best for you and your family.
