Trying to find lower insurance rates for your BMW X1? Have you fallen victim to overpriced insurance? Trust us, many consumers feel financially strained by their insurance policy.

You have so many insurance companies to choose from, and though it is a good thing to have a choice, having more auto insurance companies makes it harder to locate the cheapest rates.

You should make it a habit to compare prices periodically due to the fact that insurance rates tend to go up over time. Just because you had the lowest price on X1 insurance two years ago you will most likely find a better rate today. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance because you’re about to learn one of the best ways to eliminate unnecessary coverages and save money.

Finding Car Insurance

There are several ways of comparing rates from different insurance companies. The recommended way to compare 2014 BMW X1 insurance prices is to use the internet to compare rates. This can be done using a couple different methods.

  • Probably the best way to find the lowest comparison rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison click here to open form in new window. This method saves time by eliminating repetitive form entry for each company you want a rate for. A single, simple form compares rates from several companies.
  • A more time consuming way to shop for car insurance online is spending the time to visit each company’s website and fill out their own quote form. For sake of this example, we’ll assume you want to compare rates from Auto-Owners, Safeco and GMAC. To get rate quotes you would need to visit each site to enter your coverage information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

It’s up to you how you get prices quotes, just be sure to compare apples-to-apples coverages for each comparison quote. If you compare unequal deductibles or liability limits you can’t possibly determine the lowest rate for your BMW X1. Slightly different insurance coverages can mean a large discrepancy in price. And when comparison shopping, quoting more will increase your chances of finding a better price.

Everyone needs different coverages

When buying the best insurance coverage coverage, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Every situation is different and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions can help discover whether you would benefit from professional advice.

  • Is my 2014 BMW X1 covered for smoke damage?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • Is my cargo covered for damage or theft?
  • Does having multiple vehicles earn me a discount?
  • When can my company non-renew my policy?
  • Is a fancy paint job covered?
  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Am I getting all the discounts available?
  • Am I covered if hit by an uninsured driver?
  • Can I drive in Mexico and have coverage?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, complete this form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.

Coverages available on your policy

Understanding the coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the normal coverages offered by insurance companies.

Liability coverage

Liability insurance can cover damage that occurs to other people or property. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have limits of 25/50/25 that translate to $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability can pay for things like court costs, structural damage and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses for things like ambulance fees, rehabilitation expenses, X-ray expenses and nursing services. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision coverage

Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverage

Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as a broken windshield, rock chips in glass, damage from getting keyed and theft. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage

This gives you protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your BMW X1.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
