Extended liability increases the limit to which you are covered in the event you cause a crash and other motorists make claims against you for damages to their vehicles or for injuries they sustain as a result.
Basic underinsured motorist coverage protects you if you’re involved in a crash made by another motorist, but they cannot cover the entirety of the claims you make against them. With excess underinsurance motorist coverage, the limit to which you’re covered if they can’t pay out your claim is increased.
Collision coverage will provide you with financial cover for the repair and replacement costs of your vehicle, even if the crash that caused the damage was your fault. Along with repairs and/or replacement, collision coverage may also cover costs for towing and vehicle storage, if necessary.

You can choose to cover your vehicle for other risks beyond on-road collisions with comprehensive coverage or specified perils. Comprehensive covers a wider range of perils, but costs more. Specified perils focus on the most common perils and causes of vehicular damage, and tends to cost less.

If your vehicle can be repaired, new parts of similar kind and quality to those originally in your vehicle will be used.
Replacement cost, as with limited depreciation coverage, is primarily for new vehicle owners. If your vehicle is damaged or written off, replacement coverage typically offers the following:
Along with all of the above, the private auto insurance on offer also includes roadside assistance and other VIP perks, ensuring you’ll never be left in a bad situation should your vehicle break down. To find out more, get in contact with AMC Insurance today.
