Expensive insurance coverage can dwindle your personal savings and make it hard to pay other bills. Comparison shopping is free, only takes a few minutes, and is a good way to reduce premiums and put more money in your pocket. Insurance companies such as Progressive, GEICO and Farmers Insurance persitently shower you with ads and it is challenging if not impossible to ignore the promise of big savings and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.

It’s smart to compare prices occasionally because prices are rarely the same from one policy term to another. Even if you think you had the best deal on Maxima insurance a few years ago you can probably find a lower rate today. There is a lot of bad information regarding insurance coverage on the web, but we’re going to give you some of the best ways to slash your insurance coverage rates.

If you are insured now or need a new policy, you can use these tips to shop for the lowest rates while maximizing coverage. Finding the best rates is not that difficult. Vehicle owners just need to understand the most efficient way to compare company rates online.

How to Compare Insurance Coverage

Finding lower insurance coverage rates can be quick and easy. Just take a few minutes comparing rates online from several insurance companies. This can be accomplished using a couple different methods.

  1. One of the simplest ways to find low rates would be an industry-wide quote request form (click to open form in new window). This form eliminates the need for repetitive form submissions for each company you want a rate for. One quote request gets rate comparisons from all major companies.
  2. A different way to analyze rates consists of going to the website for every company you want to comare and complete a new quote form. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want comparison quotes from GEICO, State Farm and Farmers. To find out each rate you need to go to every website to enter your coverage information, which is why most consumers use the first method. For a list of links to insurance companies in your area, click here.
  3. The most time-consuming method to compare rates is to drive around to insurance agents’ offices. The internet has reduced the need for local agents unless you prefer the professional guidance only provided by licensed agents. Drivers can compare the best prices online and still use a local agent and we’ll talk about that later.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but ensure you’re using exactly the same deductibles and coverage limits with every price quote. If you enter differing limits it will be very difficult to make a fair comparison for your Nissan Maxima.

What is the best insurance coverage?

When buying coverage for your vehicles, there really is not a single plan that fits everyone. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs so your insurance should reflect that These are some specific questions may help you determine whether you might need professional guidance.

  • Do I have coverage when pulling a U-Haul trailer?
  • Will my vehicle be repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
  • Can I still get insurance after a DUI?
  • Where can I find high-risk insurance?
  • Is a blown tire covered by insurance?
  • Should I carry comprehensive and collision coverage?
  • When do I need to add a new car to my policy?
  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • What companies insure drivers after a DUI or DWI?

If you’re not sure about those questions then you might want to talk to an agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area. It’s fast, free and you can get the answers you need.

Learn about insurance coverages for a 2004 Nissan Maxima

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the usual coverages found on the average insurance policy.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for short-term medical expenses such as hospital visits, ambulance fees, EMT expenses, dental work and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Collision coverage

Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your Maxima from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox and damaging your car on a curb. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Liability insurance

This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against things such as structural damage, emergency aid, court costs, funeral expenses and medical services. How much coverage you buy is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like rock chips in glass, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft and hitting a deer. The maximum payout a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Normally the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
