Trying to find the cheapest insurance rates for your Chevrolet Astro? Have you finally had enough of paying out the nose each month for insurance? You are in the same boat as many other consumers.
With so many choices of insurance companies, it can be hard to find the right insurance company.
It’s important to quote other rates quite often because insurance prices are constantly changing. Just because you had the lowest price for Astro insurance six months ago a different company probably has better rate quotes today. Ignore everything you know about insurance because I’m going to teach you how to use the internet to save on insurance.
When shopping for car insurance there are multiple ways of comparing rates from companies that offer car insurance in your state. The fastest way to compare Chevy Astro insurance prices is to use the internet to compare rates. This is quite simple and can be completed using a couple different methods.
Without a doubt, the easiest way to find low rates would be an industry-wide quote request form click to view form in new window. This style of form saves time by eliminating separate quotes for every prospective company. A single, simple form gets rate comparisons instantly.
A harder way to find better pricing requires you to visit the website for every company you want to comare and get a separate price quote. For example, we’ll assume you want to get rates from State Farm, 21st Century and American Family. To do that, you would have to spend time on each company’s site and type in your information over and over, which explains why we recommend starting with the first method.

If you have time to kill, the last method to find lower rates is to waste gas driving to different agent offices. Comparing rate quotes online eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you have a need for the professional advice of a local agent. You can, however, get the lowest quotes online but buy from a local insurance agent.
It’s up to you which method you use, but try to keep the exact same information on every price quote you get. If you use different liability limits it will be nearly impossible to make a fair comparison for your Chevy Astro. Just a small difference in insurance coverages or limits could throw off the whole comparison. It’s important to know that comparing more rates from different companies helps locate lower pricing. Not every company does online price quotes, so you also need to get rates on coverage from those companies, too.
When buying the right insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there isn’t really a “best” method to buy coverage. Every situation is different so your insurance needs to address that. For example, these questions can help discover whether your personal situation could use an agent’s help.
If you’re not sure about those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.
Having a good grasp of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Auto insurance terms can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find typical coverage types found on most auto insurance policies.
Collision coverage – This pays for damage to your Astro resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things such as backing into a parked car, scraping a guard rail, hitting a parking meter, damaging your car on a curb and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as fire damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and theft. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Insurance for medical payments – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses for surgery, X-ray expenses and hospital visits. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.
Auto liability insurance – Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for 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. Your policy might show liability limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as medical expenses, bail bonds, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
