Many people forget, when they are buying their first bike, about motorcycle insurance. They are so excited to jump on their bike and ride it that they forget to add the cost of motorcycle insurance in their payment estimates. Motorcycle insurance is something that every motorcycle rider should have, no matter whether they have an inexpensive Honda motorcycle or a much-more expensive BMW motorcycle. If you're trying to figure out how to get the most out of your motorcycle insurance, here are a few tips. Get a combination policy. Most insurance companies know that their policy holders want to save money, and in order to make them happy they have come up with combination policies.
This means that you put not only your bike, but also your car, and possibly even your home insurance on the same policy. This makes things easier for the insurance company and can save you a bundle of money at the same time. Go with liability only. If you are really short of funds, go with liability only insurance. It is the most basic coverage available but will afford you some protection. Cover your accessories.
How much was the new helmet you bought? Or the chrome accessories that you had added to your bike? You can add accessories coverage in order to cover the costs of some of your accessories. A secret is that some insurance companies will pay more for the accessories than they will for the bike. If you happen to dump your bike, you will be able to get more money for a new one when you claim your accessories on the coverage as well. Compare and contrast.
Never choose the first company you contact. Instead, look around and try to find the best deal. You can often get a better deal when you pit one company against another. Look online.
You can find a lot of insurance companies online who will offer you a better rate for your motorcycle insurance than you would get by going through local companies. Insure more than one bike. If you and your spouse both have a bike, or if you have two bikes, you can save quite a bit of money by insuring more than one bike with the same company. Motorcycle insurance is not only a good idea, it is required in every state but Florida and Washington. Being smart and methodical when you purchase your motorcycle insurance is often the best way to get a good deal.
