Non-Owners Insurance Quotes in North Carolina
For drivers who do not own a vehicle but still need liability coverage for times when they borrow or rent a vehicle, the Non-Owners Insurance policy from Protective Agency will meet your needs. A non-owner liability policy will provide bodily injury liability and property damage liability when you are operating a vehicle not owned by you.
If you are convicted of a major violation such as a DUI/DWI or are found at-fault after an accident, and you had no liability insurance in place at the time of the accident, most states will require you to file an SR-22 or FR-44. An insurance carrier must provide this form to the Department of Motor Vehicles so that you can get your driver’s license reinstated. If you do not own a vehicle, the only resolution would be to purchase a non-owners insurance policy.
When to Consider a Non-Owners Insurance Policy
- If you do not own a vehicle but rent a car frequently, you are typically required to purchase liability and physical damage coverage from the rental company, which can be rather expensive. However, if you have a non-owners insurance policy, the rental company will not force you to purchase the liability portion of their insurance, and you will typically pay less in the long-run.
- If you do not own a vehicle but borrow one occasionally, the vehicle owner’s insurance will typically pay if you are in an at-fault accident. However, if the expenses from the accident exceed the limits of the owner’s insurance policy, your non-owners policy would pick up the excess, up to the limits of your policy.
- If you are temporarily between vehicles, canceling your auto insurance will cause a lapse in your insurance history. By changing your auto insurance to a non-owners policy, you can maintain continuous coverage and loyal customer status with your carrier. Also, you will have coverage if you borrow a car or test-drive a vehicle not owned by a dealer.
When Not to Consider a Non-Owners Insurance Policy
- If you have regular access to a car, such as a neighbor’s or family member’s, and they have listed you as a driver on their policy.
- If you live with your parents and use their vehicles, their insurance company will require that you are listed as a driver on their policy.
A non-owners insurance policy from Protective Agency will typically provide the same coverage as a standard insurance policy without the comprehensive or collision benefit, or rental reimbursement and roadside assistance. Non-owners insurance policies include:
- Bodily Injury Liability: This pays for medical expenses that you are liable for in the event of an at-fault accident.
- Property Damage Liability: If you or another insured driver are in an at-fault accident, Property Damage Liability will pay to repair or replace the other driver’s vehicle.
- Uninsured Motorist: This pays if you are injured by another driver in an accident who is uninsured or underinsured.
- Medical Payments: Medical coverage will pay for your injuries and injuries to passengers in your vehicle, no matter who’s at fault in an accident.
