I can’t think of anyone who cherishes buying insurance, especially when the price is too high.

You have so many car insurance companies to pick from, and although it’s a good thing to have a selection, having more insurers makes it harder to adequately compare rates.

It’s a good idea to compare prices at least once a year because rates are variable and change quite frequently. If you had the best rates on Sierra insurance two years ago other companies may now be cheaper. So just block out anything you think you know about insurance because I’m going to teach you the quickest way to save on insurance.

Insurance Coverage Comparisons

There are multiple methods to compare 1995 GMC Sierra 2500 insurance coverage prices and some are easier and takes less work. You can waste hours discussing policy coverages with local insurance agents in your area, or you can utilize the web to get prices fast.

Most car insurance companies are enrolled in a marketplace where prospective buyers only type in their quote data once, and each company returns a rated price based on that data. This system prevents you from having to do quotation requests for each company.

The only downside to getting quotes like this is you are unable to specify the companies to get quotes from. If you would rather choose specific insurance companies to request quotes from, we have a page of companies who write insurance coverage in your area. Click to view list.

However you get your quotes, be sure to compare identical coverages and limits on every quote you get. If your comparisons have unequal deductibles or liability limits you can’t possibly determine the lowest rate for your GMC Sierra 2500. Just a small difference in limits may result in large price differences. It’s important to know that quoting more provides better odds of finding the best rates.

Discounts are great for lower rates

Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but you may find discounts to help bring down the price. Some discounts apply automatically at the time of quoting, but some may not be applied and must be asked about before they will apply.

  • Multiple Policy Discount – If you insure your home and vehicles with the same company you may save 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Senior Citizens – If you’re over the age of 55, you may receive better insurance rates on Sierra insurance.
  • E-sign – A handful of insurance companies will discount your bill up to fifty bucks for buying a policy and signing up online.
  • Safe Drivers – Drivers who don’t get into accidents can pay as much as 50% less on Sierra insurance than less cautious drivers.
  • Accident Free – Drivers with accident-free driving histories can earn big discounts compared to accident-prone drivers.
  • Federal Government Employee – Active or retired federal employment could cut as much as 10% off on Sierra insurance with select insurance companies.
  • Multiple Cars – Buying insurance for all your vehicles on one policy can get a discount on all vehicles.
  • Seat Belts Save – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to use a seat belt could save 15% off the personal injury premium cost.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Belonging to a civic or occupational organization could qualify you for a break when buying insurance on Sierra insurance.

Keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to the entire policy premium. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. So even though they make it sound like all the discounts add up to a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way. But all discounts will bring down the cost of coverage.

A partial list of companies that may have some of the above discounts include:

  • State Farm
  • Progressive
  • Travelers
  • American Family
  • Liberty Mutual

It’s a good idea to ask every prospective company which discounts they offer. Savings might not be offered in your area.

You may need specialized coverage

When it comes to choosing coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique so your insurance should reflect that For example, these questions might point out if you will benefit from professional help.

  • Am I covered if my car is in a flood?
  • How much can I save by bundling my policies?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage on my 1995 GMC Sierra 2500?
  • How can I find cheaper teen driver insurance?
  • How much liability insurance is required?
  • When would I need additional glass coverage?
  • When should I not file a claim?
  • Why do I need rental car insurance?
  • Am I covered when driving someone else’s vehicle?
  • Is my camper covered by my car insurance policy?

If you can’t answer these questions, you might consider talking to an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Auto insurance 101

Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. These are the normal coverages offered by insurance companies.

Coverage for liability

Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000. Another option is a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical services, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid, medical expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

Auto collision coverage

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Sierra 2500 from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for things like damaging your car on a curb, hitting a mailbox and scraping a guard rail. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for expenses for funeral costs, surgery, prosthetic devices and dental work. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage will pay to fix damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as vandalism, damage from a tornado or hurricane and theft. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage provides protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your 1995 GMC Sierra 2500.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Normally these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Pennies from heaven

When buying insurance coverage, do not skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are a lot of situations where an insured dropped comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. The ultimate goal is to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest price, not the least amount of coverage.

Cheap 1995 GMC Sierra 2500 insurance can be bought from both online companies and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best selection. Some companies may not provide online quoting and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.
