Data rating is based on single female driver age 50, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Premium costs do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can alter coverage prices substantially.
Does full coverage make sense?
The illustration below visualizes the comparison of Chevy Silverado 2500HD insurance premiums when comparing full coverage to liability only. The data assumes no tickets, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.
Guidelines for eliminating full coverage
There isn't a steadfast formula of when to phase out full coverage, but there is a general guideline you can use. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's assume your Chevy Silverado 2500HD book value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, you would only receive $2,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying in excess of $200 annually for your policy with full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some situations where eliminating full coverage is not a good plan. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you have to keep full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not remove full coverage.
