a dealer should have a bond. The coverage on the vehicle is like having a liability policy.

If your car is a total loss will the insurance company help you fix it if you both pay?

If your car is deemed a total loss, the insurance company will only pay up the value of the vehicle. They will have nothing to do with the repairs. If the vehicle is worth $5,000 and the damage is $8,000, you are going to pay $3,000 out of your own pocket. Once the insurance company pays you that $5,000, they are out of the picture. Just be prepared for a 'salvage' fee to be deducted from your settlement by the insurance company. That is what they would have gotten for your vehicle if you had surrendered it to them.

What does gap auto insurance cover?

Physical damage coverage on an auto policy says that the insurance company has the option of paying to repair, replace, or pay the actual cash value of the vehicle. In the case where the damage to a vehicle's cost to repair is more than the ACV of the vehicle the vehicle is totalled and the company will pay the ACV of the vehicle. Sometimes when you buy a new vehicle without much or any downpayment you quickly get "upside down" in the loan. As the value of the car depreciates, the loan balance doesn't fall nearly as fast. For the first couple of years you owe more than the value of the vehicle. The insurance company has nothing to do with auto loan. GAP insurance was created to cover the difference in the ACV of the vehicle and the loan payoff. You can buy GAP insurance from the finance company or bank that financed the vehicle or from your insurance company. Purchasing from the insurance is much less expensive and you can drop the coverage once the loan balance falls below the value of the vehicle.

Deciding on GAP Car Insurance in Florida?

Once a vehicle is driven away from the car dealership, it begins to lose value. Individuals who buy new vehicles can easily owe more than their vehicles are worth after owning them for only a few months. When a new vehicle is stolen or totaled, traditional car insurance will generally only pay the fair market value of the vehicle. The vehicle's owners are responsible for paying the difference between the vehicle's fair market value and the amount that is owed for the vehicle.Guaranteed auto protection (GAP) insurance protects vehicle buyers if their vehicle is lost or stolen by paying the difference between the fair market value of the vehicle and the amount that is still owed on the vehicle. Florida residents who are buying a new vehicle should consider buying GAP insurance. Buying GAP insurance is not always necessary, but in many cases, it is a good idea to purchase a GAP insurance policy.Where Florida Residents Can Purchase GAP InsuranceGAP insurance can generally be purchased at insurance companies that offer traditional car insurance. It can also be purchased at some car dealerships. Dealerships will often charge more for GAP insurance than car insurance companies, so it is important for insurance buyers to search for the best GAP insurance price and coverage.When Buying GAP Insurance is a Good IdeaSome situations where buying GAP insurance is recommended are when the vehicle buyer must pay the car loan for over three years, paid a low down payment, or will put a large amount of miles on the vehicle.GAP insurance only covers the cost of a vehicle if it is totaled or stolen, and it will sometimes pay the deductible for auto insurance. It is important to note that GAP insurance does not pay car payments, for repossessed vehicles, or the fair market value of a vehicle.When Buying GAP Insurance is UnnecessaryGAP insurance is unnecessary if a vehicle is worth the amount or less than the amount that is owed for its loan on the fair market. If the difference between the fair market value of a vehicle and the amount that is owed for the vehicle is small, a person may pay more for GAP insurance than the amount he or she will receive if something happens to the vehicle.

Once your car has been deemed a total loss is it true you should drop collision coverage from your insurance policy as it can not be claimed as totaled ever again?

That means they will pay you what the car was worth before the wreck. At that point the insurance company owns the wreck, not you. You have nothing left to insure, therefore.
