The good news for Logan residents who are looking to buy an auto insurance policy is that car insurance rates are lower in Utah than they are throughout most of the country. This can be attributed, in part, to the low number of fatal collisions in this state. Of course, your actual quoted price is likely to be different from the average shown above because rates are calculated according to several different considerations. These may include such things as the following:
- Information about your vehicle(s) including make, model, year, color and safety features as indicated by the vehicle identification number, or VIN
- The ZIP code where you live and the place where you park your car (e.g., garage, carport, driveway, street, etc.)
- The age, sex, marital status and driving record of all drivers in your household unless you are specifically excluding them from your coverage
- The number of miles your vehicle is driven in an average month
- Your claims history and credit score
- The liability coverage limits you want
- The amount of the deductible you want
Because so many different factors are used to determine your Logan auto insurance rates, you can expect to get a different quote from each insurance company you contact. That is why comparison shopping can help you be sure that you are getting your policy at the best price.

Number of Uninsured Motorists in Utah
- Number of uninsured U.S. drivers: 12.6%
- Number of uninsured Utah drivers: 5.8%
Think about it: About one in 20 drivers you pass on the roadways in this state is driving an uninsured vehicle. If one of these drivers is at fault for a collision with your vehicle, that person is required to reimburse you for your costs to repair damaged property and obtain medical treatment for injuries. Unfortunately, these funds can often be very difficult to collect. If the at-fault driver has no assets and is unemployed, you may never see any reimbursement at all.
Fortunately, you can avoid this problem by adding the optional uninsured motorist coverage to your Logan auto insurance policy. If you have this coverage, your insurance company covers your losses immediately after an accident and then attempts to collect reimbursement from uninsured drivers on its own behalf. Uninsured motorist insurance also covers the costs associated with collisions with hit-and-run drivers.
Number of Auto Thefts in Utah
- National number of thefts per 1,000 vehicles: 2.94
- Utah number of thefts per 1,000 vehicles: 3.13
The rate of car theft in Utah is slightly higher than the national average; but in the city of Logan, the rate is quite low. Recently, for example, there were only 22 auto thefts reported in this city. That equates to about 0.45 thefts per 1,000 vehicles — well below the national rate. Know that you cannot get compensation for a stolen vehicle unless your Logan car insurance policy includes comprehensive, or “other-than-collision,” insurance.
This optional insurance also covers the costs associated with damage caused by many other noncollision events, including such things as falling objects, earthquakes, floods, fires and vandalism. If you are still making payments on your vehicle, your lender likely requires you to have this coverage.
