It can be argued that coverage is the single most important item your vehicle needs before hitting the road. In many cases, the typical driver has a basic liability insurance package for their automobiles and RVs; however in recent years, drivers have been taking it up a notch by adding ancillary products to their coverage plans as well, which keep you safe in more ways than one.
What are ancillary products?
Ancillaries are qualified as “add-on” products which ultimately protect your vehicle and your wallet. These products are mostly offered in a bundle after you’ve purchased your car or RV and are designed to cover anything from interior/exterior cosmetic repairs to preventative theft services.
Dents, scratches, popped tires, lost keys and many other unanticipated occurrences are a part of everyday life when owning a vehicle. Just as your liability insurance prevents you from paying an obscene amount of money in an accident, ancillary packages offer that same type of protection during unforeseen events, giving you peace of mind on the road.
What types of ancillary products exist?
Some ancillary products include:
- Paintless Dent Repair
- Key Replacement
- Antitheft Program
- Scratch Repair
- Tire Repair
- Windshield Repair
- Wheel Replacement
- Wheel Repair
How do I choose which plan is right for me?
Whether you own a car, truck, SUV or RV, make sure to do thorough research on which plan is right for your vehicle first. For instance, if you find yourself consistently traveling throughout the year, features like key replacement, antitheft protection and tire repair will most certainly be “must-haves” in your plan. Ensuring you have interior cosmetic coverage will also keep your vehicle looking like new all year-round with protection against different types of stains, UV-induced fading/cracking, etc.
