The policy is then uploaded to the insurance company and paperwork is sent out to the clients home.

One-way Vs. Full Coverage

When searching for auto insurance in Cambridge, one of the questions you may be asked is weather you would like full coverage or just one-way insurance. What does this mean?

One-way insurance means that you would like to opt out of both collision and comprehensive insurance. This is a significant reduction of coverage and should only be chosen if it makes sense. If your vehicle is older and worth very little, it may be wise to save on premiums and removing collision and comprehensive coverage. 

Full coverage generally means you would like to include collision and comprehensive coverage. This covers your vehicle in the event that event that you are at fault or in several other events where your vehicle is damaged.
