MetLife Auto & Home offers different types of auto insurance coverages. The first type of insurance coverage is bodily injury liability. Bodily injury liability coverage covers you if you injured someone or his/her property in an accident. Please see the policy or consult an agent for the full terms and conditions of the coverage. Policies with only bodily injury liability coverage have cheaper premiums than those with a full array of coverages, including optional substitute transportation and higher then the minimum limits for uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Many people just get liability coverage if their vehicles are paid off foregoing comprehensive and collision coverage. Only you can determine which types of coverage are best for your own needs.
The other type of auto insurance is issued with a broad spectrum of coverage. Policies with broad coverage offer liability protection plus collision and comprehensive, medical payments and personal injury coverage, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage (depending on the coverages available in your state). Purchasing broad coverage is generally the best route to go when choosing auto insurance. Work with a licensed agent to help you determine which coverages suite your needs. When it comes to premiums they are all different among the various insurance companies in the marketplace. You can choose a higher deductible and have a lower premium; or, you can choose a lower deductible and have a higher premium. The deductible is your out of pocket costs in the event of an accident.

Great post. I would definitely recommend MetLife if you're looking for a quality, large provider. However, I would still say that a smaller insurance agency such as Marchionne Insurance in Lynnfield and the Greater Boston area is the ideal choice for individuals and families.
