NJ Skylands takes a membership approach to auto insurance. Members have the choice of expanding their protection with two packages of enhancements: for savings, and / or for expanded limits. With their Auto Security Rewards program, policyholders can get additional savings on their collision deductibles, being safe drivers, and accident waivers. Through their Auto Security Bonus, NJ Skylands extends coverage to a broader array of features. For example, the insurer guarantees Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts for repairs for a model's first three years. This is a useful benefit because most insurers generally look to cover cheaper or refurbished parts from similar car models in an effort to save costs. This might not be the best fit for your vehicle, however, and result in ill-fitted repair work, and potential future visits to the repair shop.
