At Dean Arbour Ford of Alpena, we pride ourselves on our commitment to our customers. We offer a wide selection new and pre-owned Ford cars to choose from and are staffed by a team who is passionate about all things automotive. That said, one thing we regularly inform our customers about is the importance of GAP insurance.

When you total your car in an accident, you can be left with more than just the trauma and pains of the crash —  you can be left with the financial burdens, as well. GAP insurance is a preventative measure that can be added onto your car purchase, and it is intended to protect you from the possible financial damages caused by a car accident. When you total your car, and you don’t have GAP insurance, you may find yourself stuck still paying for an auto loan on a vehicle that has long been scrapped. GAP insurance settles the difference left behind by a totaled car and gives you a little bit of wiggle room to go out and purchase another one. While GAP insurance does cover car accidents, it won’t cover things like death, engine failure, and deductible costs. At the same time, GAP insurance will cover car theft and can be a great way to protect you and your wallet against the loss of a car. We always urge our customers to purchase GAP insurance, because there is no way to predict what you might encounter while out on the road, and GAP insurance offers a sort of financial bubble of protection.

Whether you’re hoping to learn more about GAP insurance or want to browse our wide range of brand-new Ford vehicles, our team at Dean Arbour Ford of Alpena are ready and willing to help. We’ll guide you through every step of the car buying process and ensure that you are fully protected and insured before taking to the open road.
