If you have gap insurance through both the car company and insurance company will you the insured be entitled to one of the payments to purchase a new car?
doubt it, gap insurance (usually sold by the car dealer or lien holder) covers just that the 'gap' between the acv (actual cash value-which is what the insurance company less your deductible if there is one, for your total loss vehicle) and pay off of your loan

If your insurance company paid you for damages to your car can you use the money for a down payment on a new car instead of fixing the old one?
As long as there is no lien against the old car, you can use the insurance settlement for anything you want. But you won't be able to get insurance on it until it is repaired.
No, however you would create a real argument should you be injured in someone else's car and tried to look to your carrier for coverage. Which one would want to jump in and pay policy limits voluntarily? No, but often having two cars carried under the same policy/carrier will often qualify you for a… multiple car discount. (MORE)

If you have traded your old car for a new one how long do you have to contact your insurance company?
Answer . \nGenerally you have 30 days to inform your carrier and make appropriate changes to your policy.\nI am a licensed insurance agent, and this is pretty standard. I t is a grace period, but be prudent and do not wait till the last minute to inform your carrier.
Answer . No, they won't know, but you will be wasting money insuring a car that's not yours anymore. If anything happens in your new car, your out of luck. I went from a Dodge Durango to a Mercedes Benz and my insurance didn't go up. Just be honest and tell them.

Insurance Cancel An insurance company can cancel you anytime they want to as long as they have a legitimate reason to do so, and they are required BY LAW to send you WRITTEN NOTICE to advise you of any cancellation should one occur. This not does not apply to monthly bill statements because within… the bill statement it says that your policy will cancel should they not receive a payment. This is the most common reason for cancellations, when people don't pay their monthly insurance bill. Another reason you may be cancelled the company can consider you high risk. If you hve had too many accidents or have have made too many claims with a certain time period, they can cancel you because they feel it would actually cost them more to insure you versus insurance premiums you would pay to them. Finally, you can be cancelled for fraudulent reasons. If you lied on a claim, mileage at time of policy issue, or just cheated the insurance for whatever reason, they can cancel you. Also, if the offense is serious enough, you can be sued or possibly prosecuted. (MORE)
Insurance companies don't depreciate cars directly, cars depreciate themselves. Much like houses, cars can go up and down in value over time. But unlike houses, cars tend to go down in value the older they get and usually will not increase in value unless the owner cutomizes the car themselves consi…derably. If a car is totalled in the event of a crash, the insurance company usually will give the current market value for your zip code BASED on the condition of the car before it was crashed. This is why whenever you purchase insurance the broker or insurance company will take photos of your car. So in case you have any substantial damage, such as a dented bumper, you will be given the book value of your type of car with a dented bumper in it. (MORE)

The cheapest car insurance company is highly dependant on yoursituation. I would recommend using a local insurance companywebsite that compares rates to find which one is best for you.
Yes, but it is not customary. An example of when it may occur is, for example, when the state in which you live requires you to maintain personal injury protection and liability coverage; in that situation, you would notmally go to the insurer of your choice and buy those coverages. If, however, you… opt not to buy collision coverage, and the company through which your car is financed requires collision coverage (to protect the collateral, and hence, its interest), it may obtain "force-placed" coverage with another insurer which covers the lenders interest.

The initial action that may occur to the consumer is merely to go to another insurer. However, that may be am overly simplistic approach. Most states have statutes (laws) that delineate the circumstances under which an auto insurer may decline to renew ("drop") an existing insured. One of these i…ncludes that the insurer makes a business decision to no longer write insurance in the state. However, terminating policies for that reason is a fairly lengthy process and requires regulatory approval. Most states have consumer protection laws as part of their Insurance Codes that define and delimit the types of offenses for which an insured may be canceled (if found guilty). More likely, at least for a first offense, the result will be a premium increase. Additionally, the circumstances under which an insured may be "dropped" must be part of the underwriting guidelines that the insured files and must get approved as part of it application to transact insurance business in the state. Admittedly, though, some states are more/less consumer friendly than others. It is important that the person whose insurance has been canceled move quickly to replace it. This is because motor vehicle authorities track cancellations and, if due to a cancellation, the persons is no longer in compliance with the state's Financial Responsibility Law which requires the maintenance of auto insurance, his/her license/tags may be suspended until the insurance is replaced. For replacing you can check a comparisson site like this one where you can get free quotes from different companies (MORE)

Yes, but it would not make any sense. The only case this would be advantageous would be if you have one bad driver in a household and the other carrier allows it. It you have 3 vehicles and 1 bad driver that drives that vehicle and that vehicle only you could purchase a separate policy for that one.… Remember that each and every policy requires you to list all drivers and all household residents on each policy. What you could do if the company allows it is to purchase two policies, one with the two good drivers on it and put the bad drivers on it but exclude him on the policy. Put all drivers on the other policy with the vehicle that the bad driver drives. Remember that an exclusion means that the bad driver cannot under any reason what so ever drive either of the other vehicles and if he does not only will their be no coverage but the company will cancel you for lying to them. Even if it is a medical emergency or moving the car in the driveway, he cannot drive the vehicles. (MORE)
