Do you live in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, or New Jersey? If so, and if you're in the market for a new automotive insurance policy, then Plymouth Rock Insurance might be worth considering. They offer both homeowner's and automobile insurance to drivers living in the four states where they currently do business. The company has been around since 1982 when former insurance commissioner Jim Stone decided to use his industry expertise in order to give motorists another option for coverage.

Plymouth Rock Auto Insurance Options

Plymouth Rock divides their available coverages into two different categories: Compulsory, and Optional. The compulsory coverage options are those that Plymouth Rock must sell you if you request an auto policy from them because they cover the minimum requirements mandated by state law for legal driving. The optional coverages are, well, self-explanatory. These are the compulsory coverage options:

  • Bodily Injury Liability ($20,000/$40,000)
  • Personal Injury Protection ($8,000)
  • Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury ($20,000/$40,000)
  • Property Damage Liability (known as "Damage to Someone Else's Property"; $5,000)

If you want more protection, or if you want protections not legally mandated by state law, you have the option of purchasing the following additional coverages:

  • Underinsured Motorist Bodily Injury
  • Medical Payments
  • Collision
  • Limited Collision
  • Comprehensive
  • Substitute Transportation (rental car insurance)
  • Towing & Labor

Comparing Plymouth Rock Insurance Quotes

Below are some estimated quotes for drivers who are curious about Plymouth Rock insurance based on specific life circumstances which alter their risk profile:

For the most part, Plymouth Rock predictably charges higher premiums for drivers who have a higher risk profile (such as young drivers, for example) and lower monthly premiums for drivers that aren't as risky. However, even if you estimate that the married homeowners in the chart above are paying about $83 each per month, that still means that they're paying higher premiums than drivers with a much higher risk profile, even though being older, married, and owning a home are supposed to be hallmarks of a low risk driver.
