Recent QuestionsI made two claims last year. Should I file a third?
If you're filing a claim to fix the damages caused to the fence, you should go ahead and get your vehicle fixed as well; events that go on your insurance history will mark all the payouts as coming from the same claim. However, having three recent claims will likely result in your rate increasing, so consider shopping around for cheaper insurance elsewhere.
Will comprehensive insurance cover damages caused by road debris?
Sorry to hear about your accident. If you have comprehensive, it should cover any damages caused by debris.
Which insurance companies will insure a driver without a license?
You may check with Geico to see if they will take an unlicensed driver. However, in my experience, they will not.
Should I stay with my car insurance company even if I'm getting a better quote from elsewhere?
It's possible that your agent is simply trying to keep your business. However, he may actually be correct.

Should I choose a company that is cheaper for my auto insurance or my home?
There's a couple of things to think about. While price is important, I would make sure you have equal coverage for your home and your auto from both Travelers and State Farm.
What is an ADOT Code?
Your ADOT code should be listed on your ID card from Travelers. If you don't see it listed there, contact Travelers Customer service.
What do I do if a tree falls on my car?
If you have comprehensive coverage then there should be no issue with filing a claim with your insurance company and getting your vehicle repaired. Your insurance company would also handle any issues with your apartment complex being liable for the damage.
