Types of car insurance agents in Virginia Beach
When researching a local agent, it helps to know the two types of insurance agents and how they operate. Agents can be described as either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive. Either one can write policy coverage, but it’s worth mentioning how they are different since it can affect the type of agent you choose.
Agents that choose to be exclusive can only write with one company such as American Family, State Farm, and Allstate. These agents are not able to give you multiple price quotes so keep that in mind. These agents are highly trained on sales techniques which helps offset the inability to provide other markets.

Agents that choose to be independent are not employed by any specific company and that gives them the ability to insure amongst many companies and find the cheapest car insurance rates. If they quote lower rates, your policy is moved internally and you don’t have to do anything.

The coverage is in the details
Having a good grasp of your insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most insurance policies.
Insurance for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for expenses for pain medications, prosthetic devices and nursing services. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like a broken windshield, damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird, vandalism and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Endeavor resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things such as sideswiping another vehicle, damaging your car on a curb, sustaining damage from a pot hole and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible on your Endeavor to save money on collision insurance.
Auto liability insurance
This can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 25/50/20 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $20,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as funeral expenses, pain and suffering, medical expenses, attorney fees and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as much as you can afford. Virginia requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/20 but you should consider buying better liability coverage.
The illustration below demonstrates why minimum state limits may not be high enough to adequately cover claims.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Mitsubishi Endeavor.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (Virginia limits are 25/50/20), their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.
Quote. Compare. Save.
Affordable Mitsubishi Endeavor insurance in Virginia Beach is possible from both online companies and from local insurance agents, so you should compare both to get a complete price analysis. There are still a few companies who may not have rates over the internet and many times these regional insurance providers sell through independent agents.
When trying to cut insurance costs, it’s a bad idea to skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are too many instances where someone dropped full coverage and found out when filing a claim that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your goal should be to buy a smart amount of coverage for the lowest cost while not skimping on critical coverages.
