Trying to find cheaper insurance rates for your Mercury Sable? I can’t think of a single person who likes paying for insurance, especially knowing the price is too high. Companies like GEICO, Progressive and Allstate continually bombard you with ad campaigns and it is difficult to see through the deception and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.

Smart consumers take time to do rate comparisons occasionally since rates are usually higher with each renewal. Just because you had the best deal on Sable insurance a couple years back you can probably find a better price now. You can find a lot of wrong information about insurance on the web, but we’re going to give you some great ways to put money back in your pocket.

Automobile Insurance Quotes

Getting better 2001 Mercury Sable insurance coverage pricing is not a difficult process. The only requirement is to take the time comparing price quotes from different insurance companies. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

Probably the best way to get quotes for comparison is to use a rate comparison form like this one (opens in new window). This form eliminates the need for repetitive form entry for each company you want a rate for. Filling out one form gets you price quotes from multiple companies.

A more time consuming way to compare prices is going to the website for every company you want to comare to request a price quote. For instance, let’s say you want to compare rates from Liberty Mutual, Safeco and Farmers. To get each rate you have to spend time on each company’s site to enter your coverage information, which is why the first method is more popular. For a list of links to insurance companies in your area, click here.

Which method you use is up to you, but double check that you are using apples-to-apples coverages and limits for each comparison quote. If you enter different liability limits then you won’t be able to determine which rate is truly the best.

When should I talk to an agent?

When buying proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s situation is a little different and your policy should reflect that. For example, these questions can aid in determining if you will benefit from professional help.

  • How much liability do I need to cover my assets?
  • Why am I required to get a high-risk car insurance policy?
  • How do I file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?
  • When should I buy a commercial auto policy?
  • Is my 2001 Mercury Sable covered for smoke damage?
  • Do I have coverage for damage caused while driving under the influence?
  • What can I do if my company denied a claim?

If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Car insurance coverage basics

Knowing the specifics of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverages available from car insurance companies.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage pays for damage to your Sable from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims such as hitting a mailbox, scraping a guard rail, rolling your car, crashing into a ditch and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle 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 2001 Mercury Sable.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Comprehensive coverages

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as theft, damage from a tornado or hurricane and hitting a bird. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses for funeral costs, dental work, prosthetic devices and hospital visits. The coverages can be 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. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Coverage for liability

This protects you from damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people in an accident. It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for claims like pain and suffering, attorney fees and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
