What should you do when your insurance company deems your car a total loss but they are taking too much time to send the settlement check to your finance company?

First of all you should talk to the claims representative and if that doesn't get results then ask for a supervisor. If you have an insurance agent to contact you can also get them involved. If that fails to get results ask your state's insurance commissioner for help in the matter.

This depends on what the settlement covers I have required the insurance company to allow me to retain ownership, this reduces the settlement. Or the if you do not specify that this is what you want the insurance company gets the car.

generally no did the ins co cross out your name or did they just put the finance companies name on the check? If they crossed it out they just committed a crime- its called altering an instrument(check) . If they left your name off the check , the claim was for a total loss and you owed more that the insurance settlement , the finance company would be entitled to the full settlement from the insurance company . If that's not the case your name should be on the check too.

The amount offered by the at-fault insurer should be the equivalent of the balance to finance company. Take NO LESS than that!!! This is called "indemnity" Use that word with the insurer... that will get them sitting up straight! * Use that word and they may laugh at you. Insurance pays the VALUE OF THE VEHICLE. You can purchase Gap Insurance, usually through the financing company, which will cover the remainder of the loan.

GAP Insurance is usually purchased at point of sale through Auto Dealerships and Automotive Finance Companies. You should look at the paperwork you received from your vehicle purchase. GAP Insurance is NOT Auto Insurance. It is Finance Company insurance.

They will probably demand full coverage on the car whether you drive it or not. The storage insurance should be quite a bit cheaper than if the vehicle were actually in use on the streets, etc. Check with your finance company and your insurance agent.

The company you are renting the bus from should have the insurance. You do not need to purchase insurance from a separate company.

User Avatar

Absolutely. When you purchase and finance a vehicle you sign a legally binding contract. Perhaps you should read what you sign. The contract states that you agree to carry insurance that includes comprehensive and collision with a maximum deductible of usually $500. If you let your insurance cancel then you have broken the contract and therefore the finance company can reposses the vehicle.

If the other party is refusing to call their insurance company - then you should call their insurance company and file the claim.

When one needs to learn about debt consolidation versus debt settlement, they must consult a company in the finance industry. Companies in this industry know the most about debt.

So you want to choose a finance company to handle your money, but you aren't really sure where to look. A good finance company is one that, above all else, you can trust. You should be able to trust your finance company so that you won't have to constantly worry about things. This is a very important idea and it's one you should cling to. Be sure that your finance company has a good reputation within the industry. Likewise, take the time out of your schedule to sit down with them and see whether the company is a good fit for you.

You should contact your insurance company and let them know. Your insurance company should take care of the rest.

No, the company cannot drive! If the company wants you to use your personal car for company business, they should provide insurance for that use.

Almost every insurance claims to provide the best settlement ratio. You will find plenty but to ensure which one actually fulfills all your requirements and providing you the best services you should compare the policy online.. By comparing you can choose the best and be saved from fake commitments..

User Avatar

no - your insurer is under no "obligation" to help you. Best bet is to pursue through small claims court. if damage is greater than small claims value - consult an attorney and negotiate a reasonable fee (usually a % of settlement amount and you owe nothing if you lose)

Most homeowners insurance companies do not provide mortgage financing. Any damage done to a home, such as hail, wind, fire, etc. should be covered by the homeowners insurance. If the roof is just "worn out" it is the homeowners responsibility This is considered normal and expected maintenance incidental to home ownership.

User Avatar

you would have to call the your insurance company but if the person has insurance it should be fine. I know my insurance company covers me for everything its based on the company you are with.

It should not take very long to finance a car, depending on the car's model, condition, etc and also the finance company you are financing the car from.

User Avatar

I'm assuming you mean the total loss settlement on your car. Usually the insurance company will research the value of your car. Check your policy carefully on this, as some insurance companies have the last word and others let you have your car appraised at your own expense should you feel the offer is too low. Usually not, but read your policy, and above all, negotiate!

That is up to the discression of the insurance company.
