“Comprehensive car insurance is designed to protect your vehicle when it’s damaged by something other than another human driver—like vandalism, fire, or fallen objects.
Unfortunately, comprehensive coverage does not extend to routine repairs, such as replacing parts of your car that have worn down simply due to time. You will be responsible for the cost of this type of maintenance on your own.”

Is it possible to purchase all of the damaged car parts that insurance companies collect?
"I'm curious what the companies do with all of the damaged car parts and if I can buy them in bulk. I want to use the parts for my own projects and I'm hoping to get a discount."

How do I get coverage for my home while it is under construction?
Do I need to buy an insurance policy while my home is being built? We are about to break ground on our new home. It should take about eight months to complete and I wonder if there is insurance that I should have at this time.
