3 Reasons Why You Need A Comprehensive Auto Insurance by AutoJoshNG: 9:07am On Mar 13
Insuring a car is truly expensive, but it’s a mandate for the safety of all drivers. This saves you a lot of money and futile efforts you would probably expend on your automobile. Below are some reasons why you need auto insurance.


You get compensated for an accident:

Although, you seem not to like the idea of car insurance, it might still be of greater benefit to you. Consider a situation, whereby you are involved in an auto crash, which is obviously not a result of your negligence or carelessness; in that kind of situation, you’re surely a victim and require compensation as you might not be having enough funds to get things fixed for yourself at that time. The car you insured already enables you to get a financial support for your ride to compensate you for the loss caused by another person. You will not have to wait till the other party pays for the damages caused.


Your car gets fixed in a short time:

The cost of maintaining a car is highly expensive, not to talk of that of repairs. An unexpected bash can cost you hundreds of thousands of Naira. In a more critical case, your car might not be movable. But for the reason that you have auto insurance, you’ll have the faults fixed in a short time and get back to going about with your ride.


Your assets are protected

Assume that you have enough funds in your bank account and you think you don’t need car insurance. Consider the fact that you will not be so happy to lose your hard earned money over the repairs or replacement of a crashed automobile which might have occurred not due to your faults. It could be natural disasters, like trees falling on your car and the likes of it. Having a car insurance will save you some money and protect your assets, you definitely have plans on that money in your bank especially in this critical economic situation of ours.

i love the naivete of copy and paste bloggers

yes your car will be fixed, but it is rarely in a short time. your insurer usually has to inspect the vehicle and approve the repair costs. there is also the issue of increased premiums [if insurer's deem you a high risk customer, they will charge you more. - so sometimes, you just hold out for a real accident]

Insurance usually last for a year. you renew when there is no claim. You can also transfer your cover from one car to the other in the event of sale.

extremely possible ,most of us are just not enlightened enough and secondly the awareness level on the part of the government and private sector is really poor,But insurance is a good thing and it helps the individual or company in terms of loss or damage,reinstating back to the position they were before the loss or accident happened.

car insurance in nigeria has a long way to go unless you re a corporate client, there is a high risk of being short changed by insurance companies, see the 3rd party insurance that millions of car owners in nigeria get no claim for.
Re: 3 Reasons Why You Need A Comprehensive Auto Insurance by Bishopp007: 4:19pm On Mar 13
The best way to protect your valuable is to get insurance. Here in U.S, people get insurance for phone, jewelry, apartment, car, house, life e.tc

How much you pay for insurance depend on how you are going to be treated during claim process both home and aboard because good and reliable insurance company will definitely charge high premium while others just want your money and make you go through hell when you need them most.

Forget about 3rd party or liability insurance, go for full coverage if you really need insurance which include both comprehensive and collision i.e you will be covered either you are at fault or not but it can be expensive sometimes.

I believe we have many good insurance companies in Nigeria but the problem is people are not ready to pay for premium.

Also, you need to consider your insurance coverage limit of liability and deductible.
