Paying cheaper rates for insurance can be very difficult for drivers who are new to online rate comparisons. With a ridiculous number of online companies available, it can quickly become a big hassle to compare rates.
It’s a good habit to shop coverage around before your next renewal because prices are rarely the same from one policy term to another. Even if you think you had the best price on Roadmaster insurance six months ago a different company probably has better rates today. Forget all the misinformation about insurance because you’re about to find out how to use the internet to save money, get proper deductibles and limits, all at the lowest rate.
To get the cheapest car insurance quotes, there a variety of ways to obtain and compare prices from auto insurance companies in your area. The simplest method to find the lowest 1993 Buick Roadmaster rates is simply to get online rate quotes. It is quite easy and can be accomplished in several different ways.
It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but make absolute certain that you use identical coverages and limits on every price quote you get. If the quotes have different deductibles it’s impossible to decipher which rate is best. Even a minor difference in insurance coverages or limits could throw off the whole comparison. It’s important to know that comparing all the rates in your area gives you a better chance of getting a lower rate than you’re paying now.
Companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive regularly use television and radio advertisements. All the ads advertise claims about saving some big amount if you switch to their company. It sounds good, but how can they all charge less that you’re paying now? You have to listen carefully.
Auto insurance companies give the cheapest rates for the type of driver that will add to their bottom line. A good example of a profitable risk profile could possibly be over the age of 50, insures multiple vehicles, and has excellent credit. Any customer that matches those criteria is entitled to the best price and is almost guaranteed to save quite a bit of money when switching.
People who are not a match for these standards must pay higher premiums with the end result being business not being written. The trick is to say “drivers that switch” not “everyone who quotes” will save that much if they switch. That’s why companies can state the savings.
Because of this risk profiling, you really should get a wide range of price quotes. You cannot predict which company will fit your personal profile best.
Companies that sell car insurance don’t list all available discounts very clearly, so below is a list some of the more common in addition to some of the lesser obvious credits that you can use to lower your rates. If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you’re paying more than you need to.
You can save money using discounts, but some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only reduce individual premiums such as liability, collision or medical payments. So when it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can help you determine the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage pays for things like medical services, pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, loss of income and court costs. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses such as X-ray expenses, EMT expenses and doctor visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
This coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Buick Roadmaster.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as falling objects, a broken windshield, hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane and hitting a bird. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim 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 covers damage to your Roadmaster resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, driving through your garage door, crashing into a building, sideswiping another vehicle and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
