“Contact your insurance agent about a storage policy; this could be a way to save a great deal of money for your family.
With a storage policy, liability coverage and collision coverage are removed from the vehicle, so no one can drive the car at this time. Only comprehensive coverage protects your car from non-collision perils like fire, theft, and vandalism.
In some states, you will need to surrender your plates when you get this type of policy.
If you are still making payments on the vehicle, you will need to contact the lienholder to make sure that this type of policy meets their minimum coverage requirements.”

"What should I do if I don’t agree with the total-loss payment amount from the car insurance company? "
My car was hit while it was parked and the insurance company declared it a total loss. They want me to accept a settlement check for $2,000, but the cost to do the repairs is $2,700. How can I get the insurance company to pay enough to fix the car?
