GAP Insurance is usually purchased at point of sale through Auto Dealerships and Automotive Finance Companies. You should look at the paperwork you received from your vehicle purchase.
GAP Insurance is NOT Auto Insurance. It is Finance Company insurance.
Can you take the coverage off of your dad’s car and use the rest of the coverage for a car that you buy?
NO. Different car, different circumstances. The old vehicle liquidated will generate a pro rated refund for any unused premium, and the fresh veh will have a premium of its own. You may be able to apply any refund to the fresh premium..
When your car is repossessed when do you cancel your insurance coverage?
The same day that you determine you aren’t getting it back. It would be wise to wait until then because if the bank repo’d it to kinda just remind you that being Trio payments behind isn’t a good thing, you might get it back and then you don’t have to go through the entire insurance application process again. ReactionYeah for sure do not cancel anything until it is no longer in your name either. I’d wait until the title transfer is accomplish as well. ResponseYou should cancel your insurance the moment your car is repossessed.The moment the car is hooked up(as the above two repo morons will tell you)it is no longer your car.So if you would like to cover someone elses vehicle with your insurance you go right ahead but you are wasting your money and your insurance coverage.Dishonest repo guys(like the above two scumbags) want you to keep the insurance on the vehicle so if they harm the car or steal stuff from it it will go on your insurance. Response Amendment: Never cancel an insurance policy until you have a fresh policy in place. If you do it will cost you more in the long run. Insurance companies are looking for loyalty and longevity without lapse in coverage. Sometimes you can possibly suspend, cancel or reduce coverage but never cancel it. The moment the vehicle is repossessed does not release you from the contract agreement. Read it. In most cases until the vehicle is transferred out of your name via the title of ownership, you must maintain physical harm coverage or they can force place it and take the premium out of the proceeds. Reduce to minimum but don’t cancel it.
If you have a license but you do not drive or own a car or have insurance will insurance companies consider it a gap in coverage when you do apply for insurance?
Insurance companies vary in their underwriting rules – generally you would be considered a “very first time insured” and that means you pay higher premiums. Some companies give fresh drivers a break, providing that they have taken a Driver Training course and can provide the certificate of completion. Have you ever been listed on someone else’s policy? If so, that would help you.
Do you have to have total coverage on a car if you get a loan for it?
Most lenders require that and include that requirement in the loan agreement papers that you signed. Failure to keep the insurance current can result in either lender initiated insurance which will be far more expensive and won’t cover liability, or it can result in the loan being “called in” and the car sold at auction. Check your contract to determine which option the bank selected. The lender is watching out for himself in these situations and, this is not to protect you interests. What should have been added tho’ was that if the vehicle is “called in” and sold at auction, you are responsible for the difference of what was obtained at auction and what you owe on the car. Let’s say at auction they get $700 at the auction for the car, and you owe $Four,000 on it, you are responsible for the $Three,300.00 and whatever fees are associated with the sale. You are best off for your interest to carry utter coverage.
Does GAP cover an uninsured car?
GAP Coverage .
Yes and no. In order to recover a GAP claim you would most likely have to provide proof of a claim to the dealer. However, you won’t receive any money for the plain fact that the insurance paid for the total loss and all GAP indeed does is cover any balance left over. For example, if your car’s worth 15,000 but you owe Legal,000, also known as being upside down in a loan, the insurance will only pay up to the market value of the car. So you’re stuck with the remaining Trio,000 dollars. GAP will pay the Trio,000 if you have it. The reason for this is that whether a car’s running or not, totaled or not, you signed that loan contract promising to repay it and unluckily these contracts ARE legally tying (if they weren’t dealerships would be out of business) so the loan does have to repaid one way or the other. It deepthroats, especially when you total a car or someone totals yours, and even tho’ GAP may have kicked in, you will get zero money unless you somehow get other funds paid to you by the claim. Look on the bright side, you won’t be stuck with a loan balance on a car you can no longer drive either. To keep your cars value up is elementary. Don’t crash it obviously, keep up on the maintenance, take care of the inwards and outside by cleaning and washing it, if you happen to suffer a minor dent or scrape get it liquidated. Also, attempt to own a car that’s commonly bought and usually retains good residual value. This means when you buy a car and by the time you finish with it, you can get a decent price for it when you ultimately sell it.

What is a GAP policy for a car loan?
Gap Insurance will pay the difference inbetween the vehicle value and the loan pay off amount..
For example : you car is valued at $17,000 but the loan amount on the car is $20,000 – if your car is totaled your basic car insurance will only pay up to the car’s value. A GAP Policy will pick up the $Three,000 difference..
Therefore you aren’t making payments on a vehicle that is at atotal loss..
IMO- is a must have!
Is Gap Insurance on cars worthwhile?
GAP insurance may well be worthwhile. GAP insurance is extra car insurance, generally obtained from the dealer that sells the car, that covers the difference inbetween what the insurer pays for a total loss of the car and what may be owing on the car loan. Normally, if a car suffers a total loss, the insurer will pay the actual cash value. This is the value of a vehicle of like, kind and quality, with similar mileage, accessories, in similar conditon; the actual cash value is calculated for the same general geographic area as the insured vehicle. Because the amount owing on the loan may be more than what the car is worth, GAP insurance pays the difference. rather than the insured being responsible for paying it to the lender. Naturally, if you paid in utter for the car upon purchase, you do not need GAP coverage. Likewise, once you pay off the car loan, GAP coverage may be canceled.
How much car insurance coverage do you need?
each state has a minimum you must carry, but these are min. for example the state i live in only requires 10k for property harm…that’s not almost enough..you can’t hardly get a good used car for 10k anymore…this min. would mean : you are at fault and the harm you caused to the other vehicle (or vehicles/fences etc..all harm caused from one accident to the property of others) was say 15k (not uncommon), your policy would/could only pay 10k and now you are left with 5k to pay… so you need to review it cautiously, i personally have 50k on property harm, and 100/300k on bodily injury and uninsured motorist…what both of those coverages are: 100k (limit) per person and 300k per accident for any injuries i cause (under the bodily injury coverage) and same for uninsured motorist..that coverage pays for the injuries caused by an uninsured motorist…….clear as mud right?

What if your car repossessed with gap insurance?
The gap insurance is part of your auto loan so I am not sure what your question is. Gap insurance covers your car if you total it and the fair market value for your car is below what you owe. If your car gets reposessed, you still owe the lender. Actually, the cost of the gap insurance is flipped into the loan – it’s not part of the loan. If you can find your original paperwork from when you bought your car, find the information on the company that issued the gap insurance policy, and then call them and tell them you no longer own the car, and see if you can get a partial refund on the premium! Can’t hurt to attempt, right? I do vehicle refinances, and our auto loan contract includes the gap insurance (albeit we call it something else) for free, so I have helped several people cancel their gap coverage, albeit we usually do it pretty early in the loan. Same with credit disability insurance, if you have it.
What if You are in a car accident and have no insurance and you hit a car that had utter coverage and gap insurance what will happen?
Generally, if you were in CA and I am assuming you are not talking about a fender bender or minor accident, you would lose your license and be required to make a filing to reinstate your license. In order to maintain your license you may be required to file what is called an SR-1P or an SR-22 which is simply proof you have insurance in place. If your insurance expires or you let it lapse, the insurance company will notify DMV and your license will be suspended again. Now you said the car you hit has insurance. This could mean they (the insurance company) will most likely attempt to go after you to recover damages they had to pay on your behalf. You are still responsible!
You have gap insurance and utter coverage insurance but your beau totaled your car and he is not on your insurance will your insuances still cover your car?
You’ll have to seek out the fine print in your gap policy for details on that.

Generally speaking harm to your car will be covered, minus your deductible, unless your beau is excluded from the policy. For the future it’s always a good idea to add drivers to your policy, even if it’s for a day, no sense in putting yourself in a position like this.

Does the driver carry the coverage on a vehicle or is it the car?
Automobile Insurance goes after the vehicle….not the driver. This said, in some cases, accidents can result in litigation in which the driver’s insurance policy can also have a claim filed against it. These cases usually involve more serious accidents such as vehicular homicide and DUI. A good rule of thumb is…..you loan your car then you also loan your Auto Insurance Policy. Therefore, if you loan your car to your good old pal or to your gf or bf and they total your car and cause property harm/ bodily injury……the claim is filed against YOUR auto insurance policy. Also, if you have anyone in your household, over the age of 16(regardless if they are licensed or not), you should disclose this to your insurance company. Some policies EXCLUDE drivers not listed on an Auto Insurance Policy. Don’t wait until claim time and find out that you are now financially responsible for somebody elses accident!

What is gap insurance for a leased car?
GAP coverage is very necessary especially in a lease situation. GAP coverage comes into play if a vehicle is deemed totaled. What GAP does is to pay for the difference in the actual cash value that is payable under the normal policy and the balance owed to the lease company or finance company of a loan. In the early years of a lease or loan the vehicle value falls quicker that the value of the vehicle. If you total the vehicle within this period you can find yourself without a vehicle but with a sizable amount of money due on a vehicle you cannot drive any more. GAP coverage will pay this difference. The Finance Dept of the auto dealership will attempt to sell you on this GAP insurance. Very first, no matter what they say, it is not mandatory to but it from them. Individual Auto insurance companies suggest GAP insurance that does the same thing for about 10% of the premium the dealership charges you for the same coverage. You will also have a right to cancel the coverage whenever you feel the value and loan balance have equaled out. One catch is that you must purchase the GAP coverage from you insurer withing 6 months of purchasing the vehicle. As a matter of total disclosure, I own and operate a petite Independent Insurance Company in Central Georgia and have for the past 22 years. Prior to that I worked as an agent for a direct writer of insurance for Trio years.
