Searching for cheaper auto insurance rates for your Chevrolet Chevy Van Classic? I can’t think of a single person who loves paying for auto insurance, particularly when they are paying too much.

Most major insurance companies give coverage price quotes direct online. Obtaining pricing is possible for anyone as you just type in the coverage amounts you desire into the form. After you complete the form, their rating system will order information on your driving record and credit history and quotes a price based on many factors. This simplifies rate comparisons, but the work required to visit many different websites and enter the same data into a form can get tiresome after awhile. But it’s very important to have as many quotes as possible if you are searching for the lowest possible prices on auto insurance.

Learning about specific coverages of a auto insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Insurance for medical payments
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for hospital visits, X-ray expenses and pain medications. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
This coverage covers damage to your Chevy Van Classic caused by collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, driving through your garage door and sideswiping another vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism and hitting a bird. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Liability auto insurance
This coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, loss of income and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
This provides protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your 1996 Chevy Chevy Van Classic.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.
