Motorcycle Insurance Policy in Texas

Unless you have a true recreational vehicle insurance package that includes Motorcycle insurance, you could be in for an unpleasant ordeal should you experience a loss with your Motorcycle. Without true Recreational Vehicle insurance, your emergency expenses incurred while traveling would undoubtedly come out of your own pocket.

Why do you need motorcycle insurance?

You’ll enjoy being out on the open road even more when you’re not worried about the safety of yourself, your passengers or your investment. Here are a few things to consider:

  • If you’re in an accident or your motorcycle is stolen, it costs money, often a lot of money, to fix or replace it.
  • If you or a passenger is injured in an accident, medical costs can be extremely expensive.
  • If your motorcycle is responsible for damage or injury to others, you may be sued for much more than you’re worth.
  • Your motorcycle may be one of your most prized possessions. It deserves special protection.

 

Things to consider when selecting and questions to ask your agent

Your Independent Agent is an advocate for finding the best motorcycle insurance that meets your specific needs. Here are a few things to consider as you prepare for the discussion:

  • How much can I afford to pay if my motorcycle is in an accident, damaged or stolen? (Ask your agent what your cost savings would be if you raised your deductible.)
  • What discounts and programs are available? (Ask about discounts for taking safety classes or having multiple policies. You may also save money if your motorcycle is stored in a garage or if you belong to a motorcycle association.)
  • How much medical and liability coverage should I have?
  • Does the insurance company have a good reputation for customer service? Is it known for paying claims fairly and promptly?
  • What’s the process for filing and settling a claim?

 

Tips for the cost-conscious rider

Many factors can play a role in determining what your insurance costs will be such as your age, your driving record, where you live and the type of motorcycle you own, or being a graduate of a rider-training course.

  • Many companies offer discounts from 10 to 15 percent on motorcycle insurance for graduates of training courses, such as the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) rider course. Riders under the age of 25, usually considered a higher risk, may see some savings by taking this course. It’s also a good idea for cyclists who have already had accidents.
  • Maintaining a good driving record with no violations will also help reduce your premiums.
  • In many northern states, riders may save money by buying a “lay-up” policy. With a lay-up policy, all coverage except comprehensive is suspended during winter months.
  • Find out what discounts your insurance representative offers. Multibike discounts for those insuring more than one bike, organization discounts, if you’re a member of a motorcycle association, and mature rider discounts for experienced riders, are just a few possibilities. Discounts can range anywhere from 10 percent to 20 percent, depending on the company and your state. Availability and qualifications for discounts vary from company to company and state to state.
  • Keep in mind that the type, style (such as a sports bike vs. a cruiser) and age of the motorcycle, as well as the number of miles you drive a year and where you store your bike may also affect how much you pay for your premium.

Talk to your insurance representative about coverage limits.

The personal motorcycle policy covers:

  • bodily injury
  • property damage
  • guest passenger liability

Liability limits start at $15,000 and can be increased to $300,000.

You should talk to your insurance representative about the type of coverage that would best suit your needs.

Frequently asked questions

Texas is a fault state for car accidents, meaning that the driver responsible for an accident will generally be required to cover damages and injuries of all parties involved. If you cause an accident in Texas, for example, you may have to file a claim on your insurance policy to cover damages and injuries to yourself, your passengers, your vehicle, the other drivers and passengers, other vehicles involved, etc. Without insurance, this could quickly add up.
There usually isn’t harm in switching auto insurance policies when you desire a new insurer or cheaper rates. However, switching right after an accident can usually raise your rates.
Texas requires a minimum amount of liability insurance, but you will need additional insurance to protect your vehicle and your passengers.
Car insurance rates can change each year, but they can change nearly at any time depending on the circumstances. Accidents may change your insurance rates almost immediately.
When you file a claim, your claim will be evaluated compared to your policy. Once it is approved, you can receive compensation for damages and injuries.

Don’t wait until after an accident to get the coverage you deserve. Call The Walls Insurance Agency, Inc. at (512) 647-2338 or fill out an online quote form to get started.
