If you are unlucky enough to have your car stolen, don't worry, your insurance can help to replace the vehicle. The auto insurance coverage that protects you against theft is called Comprehensive. Comprehensive coverage has a deductible, usually $500 or $1,000. The insurance pays the actual cash value of the vehicle less the deductible. Some companies, such as Chubb Insurance, allow you to purchase comprehensive coverage at agreed value so that you know exactly how much money you will receive if the vehicle is stolen.
