The toys we buy as adults tend to get more expensive, and often, more dangerous as we get older. One extremely popular form of entertainment in Colorado, Texas and elsewhere in America is the use of off-road vehicles, whether it’s a dune buggy busting through sandy beaches or an all-terrain 4×4 jeep tackling the hills and trails of the backcountry.
Despite the fact that these vehicles don’t transit on traditional roads, many of the same insurance principles apply when it comes to theft and damages. Even more importantly, for those who race dirt bikes competitively or ride on state-owned trails, Colorado off-road vehicle insurance is often mandatory.
There are different factors that go into creating and off-road vehicle insurance policy, the first being the type of toy, whether it’s a dirtbike, ATV, jeep, side-by-side, dune buggy, snowmobile, tank, horse-drawn-chariot, hovercraft, blimp or other non-traditional mode of sporting transportation.
Aside from the type of vehicle, Automotive.com shares some information about typical off-road vehicle or ORV insurance policies:
“ORV policies come standard with: Increased liability coverage limits, non-collision accidents coverage, towed trailer or sled property coverage, additional property coverage for safety gear, such as goggles or helmets, and replacement/repair of aftermarket parts.
Not all risks will be covered. Your policy will protect against a specific set of damaging possibilities. Collision, fire, windstorm, theft, lightning, and vandalism are among the most common covered perils.”
