While buying a used car one examines every single feature that can have an effect on the functionality of the car: be it interiors, exteriors or even the engine functionality. However, one thing that most of the clients tend to ignore so the renewal of insurance. In fact renewal of insurance is even more important in the case of used cars as they are more prone to wear and tear and may need major repair in the future. As the other original documentation is transferred to the buyer of the used car, the car insurance policy is also transferred.
However, there are some things to remember while going to renew used cars insurance
What is NCB and why is it not for you?
If the policyholder does not make any claim in preceding years he is rewarded with NCB (No ClaimBonus). The NCB simply means that the amount of premium will keep on decreasing every year. A claim free record can reward the owner with a discount of anywhere between 20 and 50 percent on payable premium. If one has maintained a claim free record during the last year you are entitled to claim an initial NCB of 20% in the first policy renewal.While renewing the policy an initial 20% NCB can be claimed. Gradually the claim can be increased and at the end of five consecutive claim-free years, you can lay a maximum of 50% NCB.
Why is it not for you?
One more thing to keep into mind is that NCB is associated with the user and not the car. So as a used car owner you will not inherit the NCB.
