Bombay (Maharashtra) [India]May 13 (ANI/NewsView): Since the Motor Vehicle Act made it mandatory for car owners to have a car insurance policy, insurers have provided a diverse range of car insurance products that protect the insured against the financial shock that follows in the event of accidental repairs.
Zero amortization is one such top-up coverage that provides comprehensive coverage.
With the increase in road accidents and the increase in sales of luxury or sports cars, it is recommended to choose an insurance policy that offers comprehensive coverage. Zero amortization top-up coverage in auto insurance ensures full coverage, negating the impact of amortization.
Depreciation is the devaluation of an asset’s value due to natural wear and tear, use, and obsolescence. Besides the engine and moving parts, other parts of a vehicle are also subject to depreciation, such as plastic and metal. Depending on the age of the car, the accumulation of depreciation varies from 5% for 0 to 6 months to 50% for vehicles over 10 years old.
When an accident occurs, insurers pay for the replacement of parts affected by the accident after deduction of depreciation. In such cases, the insured must pay the difference between the value of the new part and the depreciated value. However, if one has a zero depreciation top-up cover, which can be used for a nominal premium, the insured can receive the full amount of damaged parts regardless of the amount of depreciation.
