When to drop comprehensive and collision coverage
There is no exact formula to stop buying comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a general convention. If the annual cost of comprehensive and collision coverage is about 10% or more of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might consider buying liability only.
For example, let's say your BMW X5 settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would get paid by your company is $7,000 after paying your deductible. If premium cost is more than $700 a year to have full coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.
There are some situations where only buying liability is not recommended. If you haven't paid off your loan, you have to keep full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should keep full coverage on your policy.

Two different types of auto insurance agents
If you're trying to find a good insurance agency, it helps to know the two types of agencies and how they are distinctly different. Auto insurance policy providers are classified as either exclusive or independent (non-exclusive). Either can handle auto insurance, but it is important to understand the difference in the companies they write for since it can impact your selection of an agent.
Independent Insurance Agents
Agents in the independent channel are not locked into one company and that gives them the ability to insure with a variety of different insurance companies and find the cheapest auto insurance rates. If you are not satisfied with one company, they can switch companies in-house which requires no work on your part. If you are trying to find cheaper rates, you absolutely need to get some free quotes from a couple of independent agencies to have the most options to choose from.
Listed below is a partial list of independent insurance agents in Houston that may be able to give price quotes.
Agents of this type can usually just insure with one company such as State Farm, AAA, and Liberty Mutual. Exclusive agents are unable to place coverage with different providers so always compare other rates. They are very knowledgeable on their company's products which helps them sell insurance even at higher premiums.

Finding a good auto insurance agent needs to be determined by more than just the premium amount. Some important questions to ask are:
- How does the company pay claims for a total loss?
- Do they assist clients in filing claims?
- Is the agency involved in supporting local community causes?
- Are glass claims handled on-site or do you have to take your vehicle to a repair shop?
- Which companies can they place coverage with?
- If you have an accident, will your rates go up?
