Lisa wants you to know

When it comes to purchasing car insurance, Lisa always keeps in mind that the cheapest policy is not necessarily the best choice. While it may be tempting to choose the least expensive option, it may not provide collision coverage and/or comprehensive coverage, meaning repairs due to accidents, theft and natural disasters may get quite expensive. Lisa thinks you should consider your insurance needs and how much you’d be willing to pay out-of-pocket in the event of an accident before you choose a policy. She also thinks it’s a very important step to compare rates from several car insurance companies before you decide which company you want to do business with.
