Are you a victim of an overpriced insurance policy? Trust us, there are a lot of people just like you who feel imprisoned by their insurance policy. Consumers have many auto insurance companies to choose from, and though it is a good thing to have a selection, having more car insurance companies makes it harder to compare rates.

Take these nine discounts and save

Auto insurance companies don’t list all available discounts very well, so we researched some of the best known and the more hidden auto insurance savings. If you don’t get every credit you qualify for, you are throwing money away.

  • Government Employees – Simply working for the federal government may qualify you for a discount for Supra insurance with select insurance companies.
  • Auto/Life Discount – Larger companies have a discount if you purchase life insurance from them.
  • Save with a New Car – Adding a new car to your policy is cheaper since new cars are generally safer.
  • Good Student – Performing well in school can save 20 to 25%. The discount lasts well after school through age 25.
  • Discount for Swiching Early – A few companies offer discounts for switching policies prior to your current policy expiring. The savings is around 10%.
  • Seat Belts Save – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts can save up to 15% on the medical payments or PIP coverage costs.
  • Anti-lock Brake System – Cars that have steering control and anti-lock brakes prevent accidents and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Bundle and Save – If you insure your home and vehicles with the same company you will save at least 10% off all policies.
  • Multi-car Discount – Having more than one vehicle on one policy qualifies for this discount.

As a disclaimer on discounts, many deductions do not apply the whole policy. Most only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when the math indicates you can get free auto insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Which policy gives me the best coverage?

When buying coverage for your vehicles, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s needs are different and your policy should reflect that. These are some specific questions could help you determine if you will benefit from professional help.

  • Do I need added coverage for expensive stereo equipment?
  • Is my state a no-fault state?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage?
  • Is business property covered if stolen from my car?
  • Am I covered if my car is in a flood?
  • Should I sign the liability waiver when renting a car?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It’s fast, free and can help protect your family.

Do insurance coverage companies bend the truth?

Consumers constantly see and hear ads for car insurance savings by Progressive, GEICO, Allstate and State Farm. All the companies say the same thing about savings if you change to their company.

But how can every company make the same claim? It’s all in the numbers.

All companies have a certain “appetite” for the type of customer they prefer to insure. For instance, a preferred risk might be profiled as over the age of 40, owns a home, and has a short commute. A propective insured who matches those parameters will get very good rates and therefore will save a lot of money.

Potential insureds who don’t measure up to this ideal profile will be quoted higher prices which usually ends up with the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ad wording is “people who switch” not “people who quote” save that kind of money. That’s why companies can make those claims. This emphasizes why it’s extremely important to compare many company’s rates. It’s not possible to predict the company that will fit your personal profile best.

Specifics of your car insurance policy

Understanding the coverages of car insurance aids in choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are the normal coverages available from car insurance companies.

Liability insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability coverage pays for things such as funeral expenses, medical expenses, loss of income and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things like scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses such as hospital visits, nursing services, dental work and rehabilitation expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive auto coverage

This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

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

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Toyota Supra.

Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.

Never pay more for less

Cost effective 1997 Toyota Supra insurance can be sourced on the web in addition to many insurance agents, and you need to comparison shop both so you have a total pricing picture. Some auto insurance companies do not provide online price quotes and most of the time these small, regional companies sell through independent agents.

As you shop your coverage around, don’t be tempted to buy less coverage just to save a little money. There are many occasions where an insured dropped full coverage only to find out that it was a big error on their part. Your aim should be to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price.

We just presented some good ideas how to get a better price on insurance. The key thing to remember is the more rate comparisons you have, the better your comparison will be. You may be surprised to find that the lowest premiums are with a small local company. Regional companies often have lower prices on specific markets than their larger competitors like Allstate and Progressive.
