How to buy insurance coverage online

Finding a better price on insurance coverage is an easy way to save money. You just need to spend a little time to compare rate quotes to find. You can get a good selection of rate quotes by following the guidelines below.

  1. The simplest way to find the lowest comparison rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This easy form saves time by eliminating boring form submissions for every company. Just one form gets coverage cost estimates direct from many companies. This is perfect if you don’t have a lot of time.
  2. A slightly less efficient method to find more affordable insurance consists of going to the website for each individual company to complete their respective quote request forms. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want to view quotes from Nationwide, Progressive and Liberty Mutual. To get rate quotes you would need to take the time to go to each site to input your insurance information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

Take whichever approach you prefer, but make absolute certain that you use exactly the same coverage limits for each comparison quote. If you enter different data it will be nearly impossible to determine which company has the best rates.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there really is no single plan that fits everyone. Everyone’s situation is unique.

Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining if your insurance needs will benefit from professional help.

  • Does my 1996 Mazda MPV need full coverage?
  • Why do I only qualify for high-risk insurance?
  • Is extra glass coverage worth it?
  • Can I afford low physical damage deductibles?
  • Why do I need rental car insurance?
  • How much can I save by bundling my policies?
  • How much underlying liability do I need for an umbrella policy?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?

If you can’t answer these questions but you think they might apply to your situation then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Car insurance coverages 101

Having a good grasp of car insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage covers damage to your MPV caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims such as crashing into a building, scraping a guard rail and hitting a mailbox. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Auto liability insurance

This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability insurance covers things such as funeral expenses, legal defense fees, bail bonds and medical services. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills like pain medications, dental work and chiropractic care. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, a broken windshield and hitting a deer. The most your car insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Mazda MPV.

Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
