Collision is the loss you incur when your automobile collides with another vehicle or object, such as a telephone pole.

There are several things you can do to lower the cost of your automobile insurance. One way is to look for competitive pricing. An independent agent works with many companies and can provide you with comparative rates and ensure that you are getting the same coverage.
A second way to lower the cost is to change your deductible. By raising your deductible, you may lower the cost of you automobile insurance by almost 10%. You must be able to pay the deductible amount in case of a claim.
