Thoughts on auto insuranceAuto Insurance Tip – Insurance follows the vehicle and may impact your coverage by Ed Setliff, State Farm Insurance Agent

Before Loaning Your Vehicle You Need To Keep In Mind:

  • You are responsible for who you allow to drive your vehicle.
  • Know the person that you are lending your vehicle to. Never allow an impaired driver to operate your vehicle.
  • If another driver wrecks your vehicle, you are responsible for filing the claim and paying any applicable deductibles.
  • If the damage exceeds policy limits, you may be held liable for the additional monetary damages.

Think before you loan your auto to another person. Make sure you pass this information on to all drivers in your household. We want to keep your family properly protected and keep your premiums as low as possible.
