How To Get Cheap Portland Car Insurance
Cheap Portland car insurance is easy to get when you purchase only the minimum liability auto insurance requirements in Oregon. When it comes to minimum car insurance requirements, Oregon leaves very little out. Portland drivers must have person bodily injury, property damage liability, a “per crash” bodily injury, a “per crash” property damage, personal injury protection (to cover the cost of any medical treatment to the injured party up to one year after the accident), and uninsured motorist coverage.
With so much Portland car insurance, you may feel you don’t need full-coverage auto insurance in Oregon.
The minimum required Portland car insurance amounts are as follows:
• $10,000 per crash for property damage
• $15,000 personal injury protection
• $25,000 per person bodily injury and property damage liability
• $50,000 per crash for bodily injury to others
• $25,000 per person and $50,000 per crash for bodily injury of Oregon uninsured motorist coverage
Of course, not all Oregon drivers can get cheap Portland car insurance by purchasing the minimum liability auto insurance requirements. Why? Not all drivers are eligible to purchase only the minimum requirements. Sometimes lenders and/or Oregon car insurance companies require drivers with cars they don’t own outright to purchase full-coverage auto insurance. Perhaps a driver has had his or her license suspended or revoked and has been ordered by the courts to purchase more than the minimum liability auto insurance requirements in Oregon.
Whatever the reason, these Oregon drivers must find other ways to get cheap Portland car insurance. Satisfying the orders of the courts, as well as working to repair the driving record, is one way to lower the cost of auto insurance; so is purchasing a car with – or adding – safety features. You can also take safety precautions such as parking your car in well-lit areas such as private parking lots to further protect your vehicle and lower your Portland car insurance premiums.
