Have you fallen victim to an underperforming, overpriced auto insurance policy? Trust us when we tell you there are a lot of people just like you who feel imprisoned by their auto insurance policy.

Companies like State Farm, GEICO and Farmers Insurance all claim big savings, bombarding you with ads and it is challenging if not impossible to ignore the flying pigs and cute green geckos and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.

Consumers need to take a look at other company’s rates periodically because prices change quite often. Just because you had the lowest rates on Altima insurance six months ago there may be better deals available now. So forget all the misinformation about auto insurance because we’re going to show you one of the easiest ways to save money, get proper coverage and the best rates.

How to Compare Auto Insurance Costs

There are multiple methods to compare 2010 Nissan Altima auto insurance quotes, but one way is less labor-intensive and much quicker. You could waste time discussing policy coverages with insurance agencies in your area, or you can stay home and use online quoting to get the quickest rates.

Many insurance companies enroll in a system where insurance shoppers submit one quote, and at least one company then gives them pricing based on that information. This eliminates the need for quotation requests for each company you want a rate for.

The only drawback to getting quotes like this is you cannot specify which companies you want pricing from. If you prefer to choose individual companies to compare rates, we have a page of companies who write auto insurance in your area. View list of insurance companies.

Whichever method you choose, compare identical coverages for every quote you compare. If you enter different deductibles it will be next to impossible to truly determine the lowest rate. Just a small difference in limits can mean a large discrepancy in price. Just remember that comparing more company’s prices gives you a better chance of getting the best rates.

When might I need the advice of an agent?

When it comes to buying the best car insurance coverage, there is no one size fits all plan. Every insured’s situation is different so your insurance needs to address that. For instance, these questions may help highlight if your situation would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Is business property covered if stolen from my car?
  • Is my 2010 Nissan Altima covered for flood damage?
  • Where can I get insurance after a DUI in my state?
  • Who is covered by my policy?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • I don’t drive much so do I pay less?
  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Insurance coverage options for a 2010 Nissan Altima

Understanding the coverages of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are the normal coverages offered by insurance companies.

Medical expense coverage

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for expenses such as nursing services, funeral costs, prosthetic devices, dental work and rehabilitation expenses. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive protection

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

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a broken windshield, hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and fire damage. The most your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision coverage

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

Collision coverage pays for things like crashing into a ditch, hitting a mailbox and hitting a parking meter. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Nissan Altima.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Coverage for liability

This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage pays for claims like attorney fees, court costs and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
