Multi Vehicle Insurance
The easiest way to reduce costs is to open a multi vehicle insurance policy for a residence where more than one vehicle is registered to the household. This type of policy can be for a 2 vehicle all the way up to a 10 vehicle in a single policy.
The reason a multi vehicle insurance policy is less expensive is the insurance company will give a discount for each additional vehicle they cover at any given residence. It is basically like buying in bulk, the more vehicles you cover, the cheaper it is.
How are the policies issued?
With a multiple vehicle blanket over a family, each vehicle that is covered will have its own policy. Each policy will be issued with the premium based upon many different factors.
Does everyone have to live at the residence?
No a multi vehicle policy is most effective in covering a family that can, but does not have to live together under one roof. This makes it possible to cover the vehicles of students when they are attending university, a person who needs to move away for employment or for any other reason and they live at a separate residence.
While family members do not have to live at the primary residence, anyone living there can be covered in this type of insurance policy. This includes friends, staff and domestic partners.
How many people can be covered per vehicle?
In all motor insurance policies there is a primary operator of the vehicle. Most policies will have a secondary driver of vehicle. When a person is listed in the policy they will also be covered. While each insurance company is different on average if 6 cars are covered, up to 12 drivers can be listed.
What type of vehicles can be covered?
For the most part any type of vehicle can be covered. This can include the daily commuter vehicle, a sports car, a classic antique, motorcycles, scooter and even a commercial vehicle such as a work van. This is possible because the multi vehicle insurance policy is the blanket coverage with each vehicle covered under its own individual policy.
With a multi vehicle insurance policy for a family or residence, the overall costs of the premiums are discounted to help reduce the costs. Nearly any type of vehicle can be covered and the renewal dates of the policies can be on the same date or different depending on how the family wants to schedule it.
