At times, owning motorcycles is a family affair. Sometimes, you will own more than one bike, which you, your spouse and others might enjoy. Still, when it comes to insuring the vehicles, you must factor in the cost of coverage for two of them, and multiple policies. Therefore, you’ll need to see what the best way is to maximize your insurance savings. You don’t want to spend too much paying for coverage, after all. Keep just a few tips in mind to help you insure the bike to your family’s greatest benefits.
Multi-Bike Policies are Usually a Savings Vessel
All motorcycles need to have insurance. So, if you own two of them, then they will need their own coverage. Still, just because each bike needs coverage, that doesn’t mean you can’t still carry one policy.
Motorcycle insurance companies frequently offer what they call multi-bike policies. With these policies, you can essentially extend coverage to all the bikes in your possession. You’ll have one policy, however that policy will insure multiple bikes.
Multi-bike policies do have their benefits. Primarily, they allow you to create cohesion for the coverage that all of your bikes need. For example, you’ll be able to extend all the necessary liability insurance to all of your bikes and their respective riders. Therefore, you’ll always have appropriate protection that will keep your bike in compliance with the law.
All the same, multi-bike policies can also offer you a degree of coverage customization for each bike. For example, you might be able to extend collision and comprehensive insurance to one bike without having to extend it to others. You can also often extend targeted protection to the special perks or customizations of each bike. Therefore, you can better control where you direct your coverage.
Finally, a primary benefit of multi-bike policies is that you won’t have to juggle paying premiums on separate policies. Instead, you’ll only pay one premium, despite having coverage for multiple bikes.
Understanding the Cost Benefits
Multi-bike policies usually do have their savings perks. It’s almost always more expensive to insure two bikes compared to one. However, by getting a multi-bike policy, you likely will still pay less than you would for two policies. Insurers will likely offer a premium discount, which can vary based upon each insurance company’s rules.
Keep in mind, you’ll also likely be able to still benefit from other discounts such as safe driver savings and vehicle security discounts. Therefore, your agent can likely make sure you receive as much savings potential as possible.
