Want better insurance rates for your Mazda CX-5? Expensive insurance can empty your savings account and put the squeeze on your family’s finances. Shopping your coverage around is a great way to help make ends meet. You have so many car insurance companies to purchase coverage from, and although it’s nice to have multiple companies, so many choices can make it hard to compare rates and find the lowest cost insurance.

You need to shop coverage around occasionally since rates change frequently. Despite the fact that you may have had the best price on CX-5 insurance last year there may be better deals available now. Don’t believe everything you read about insurance on the internet, so by reading this article, you’re going to learn some good information on how to find cheap insurance.

The purpose of this post is to familiarize you with the most effective way to quote insurance. If you have car insurance now, you stand a good chance to be able to cut costs considerably using these tips. Vehicle owners just need to learn the proper methods to compare price quotes over the internet.

Insurance Coverage Prices Online

Finding a lower price on 2016 Mazda CX-5 insurance is a fairly straight forward process. The only thing you need to do is invest a little time to compare rate quotes online with multiple companies. It is quite easy and can be accomplished in several different ways.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to get the best comparison quotes is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This form keeps you from doing boring form submissions for each company you want a rate for. One quote request will get you price quotes from many national carriers.
  2. A more difficult way to get comparison quotes consists of going to each company website to complete their respective quote request forms. For example, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from Progressive, GEICO and Liberty Mutual. To get each rate you have to go to every website and enter your information, which is why the first method is quicker. For a list of links to insurance companies in your area, click here.
  3. The hardest method of getting rate comparisons is driving to local insurance agencies. Buying insurance online makes this process obsolete unless you want the personal advice of a local agent. It is possible to compare the best prices online and get advice from an agent in your area and you’ll learn how to do that later.

It’s up to you how you get prices quotes, just be sure to compare the exact same information for every company. If you are comparing different values for each quote it will be very difficult to find the best deal for your Mazda CX-5.

Tailor your coverage to you

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there really is no “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. Here are some questions about coverages that may help highlight if you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Is my cargo covered for damage or theft?
  • How much liability do I need to cover my assets?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my 2016 Mazda CX-5?
  • Am I covered if my car is in a flood?
  • Can I still get insurance after a DUI?
  • Am I covered by my employer’s commercial auto policy when driving my personal car for business?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies. It is quick, free and you can get the answers you need.

Auto insurance coverages 101

Knowing the specifics of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are typical coverages offered by auto insurance companies.

Comprehensive coverage

This coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as falling objects, damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass, fire damage and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount your auto insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Medical payments coverage and PIP

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for expenses for things like rehabilitation expenses, nursing services and funeral costs. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage

This coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Normally these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Liability

This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property in an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for 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 translate to a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage pays for claims like funeral expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, medical services and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage covers damage to your CX-5 from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for things like hitting a parking meter, colliding with another moving vehicle and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
