Quick Insurance Coverage Quotes

All major insurance coverage companies like Allstate and Progressive quote coverage prices online. Getting online quotes is pretty easy as you just type in your required coverages into a form. Upon sending the form, their system automatically retrieves information on your driving record and credit history and generates pricing information based on these and other factors. Online price quotes helps simplify price comparisons, but the process of having to visit several different sites and fill out multiple forms can be a bit repetitive. But it’s absolutely necessary to compare as many rates as possible in order to find the lowest price.

A more efficient way to get multiple rate quotes requires only one form that gets price quotes from more than one company. It saves time, reduces the work, and makes quoting online much more efficient. Immediately after you send the form, it gets priced with multiple companies and you can pick any one of the price quotes you receive. If the quotes result in lower rates, you can simply submit the application and buy the new coverage. It takes less than 15 minutes and you will find out if you’re overpaying now.

When might I need help?

When it comes to choosing the right insurance coverage, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Each situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining if you will benefit from professional help.

  • Why am I required to buy liability insurance?
  • Why am I required to buy high-risk coverage?
  • Do I need medical payments coverage since I have good health insurance?
  • Is my state a no-fault state?
  • Is upholstery damage covered by car insurance?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or go to this page to view a list of companies. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your GMC Sonoma.

Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Liability car insurance

This can cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 100/300/100 which stand for a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability can pay for claims such as attorney fees, structural damage and medical expenses. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Medical expense coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses such as prosthetic devices, ambulance fees, funeral costs and hospital visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers both the driver and occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Collision coverage

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Sonoma from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things like colliding with another moving vehicle, backing into a parked car and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive protection

This will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims like hitting a deer, vandalism, damage from getting keyed, hail damage and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
