Are you a victim of an overpriced car insurance policy? Believe me when I say you’re not alone. Multiple insurers compete to insure your vehicles, so it can be very hard to choose a company and get the definite best rates possible.

How to Compare Insurance Rates

Finding a better price on insurance can be relatively painless. Drivers just need to spend a few minutes to compare rate quotes online from several insurance companies. This can be accomplished using a couple different methods.

  • The first (and easiest) way to find low rates is to use a rate comparison form click to view form in new window. This type of form keeps you from doing separate quote forms for each company. One form submission compares rates from insurance companies with the best prices.
  • A more difficult way to get comparison quotes requires you to visit the website of each company and complete a new quote form. For sake of this example, let’s say you want to compare Liberty Mutual, Allstate and State Farm. To find out each rate you need to take the time to go to each site to input your insurance information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

  • The least recommended way to compare rates is driving to and from local insurance agencies. Buying insurance online makes this process obsolete unless you require the personal advice only provided by licensed agents. However, consumers can comparison shop online but still have the advice of a local agent and we’ll touch on that later.

Whichever method you choose, ensure you are comparing apples-to-apples information on every quote you get. If you compare unequal deductibles or liability limits you can’t possibly truly determine the lowest rate.

When should I talk to an agent?

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no one size fits all plan. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions can help discover if your insurance needs would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Am I covered when driving someone else’s vehicle?
  • Do I have coverage for damage caused while driving under the influence?
  • Does liability extend to a camper or trailer?
  • Is pleasure use cheaper than using my 1990 Lexus LS 400 to commute?
  • Can I get a multi-policy discount?
  • Do I need higher collision deductibles?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?

If you’re not sure about those questions but you know they apply to you, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier It only takes a few minutes and may give you better protection.

Auto insurance policy specifics

Having a good grasp of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverage types found on the average auto insurance policy.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses like doctor visits, ambulance fees, funeral costs and nursing services. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover you and your occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Auto collision coverage

This pays for damage to your LS 400 from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for claims like driving through your garage door, crashing into a building, crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability auto insurance

This coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged property.

Liability coverage pays for things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income, medical services and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage provides protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Lexus LS 400.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as fire damage, theft, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
