Looking for cheaper car insurance rates? Shoppers have a choice when shopping for affordable Mercedes-Benz M-Class insurance. They can either spend hours calling around getting price quotes or use the internet to get rate quotes.

There are more efficient ways to compare car insurance rates and we’ll show you the proper way to quote coverages for a Mercedes-Benz and find the lowest price from both online companies and local agents.

Insurance policy discounts

Companies don’t necessarily list every discount they offer in a way that’s easy to find, so below is a list a few of the more common and the more hidden credits available to bring down your rates. If you do not check that you are getting every discount you qualify for, you’re paying more than you need to.

  • Theft Deterent Discount – Anti-theft and alarm system equipped vehicles prevent vehicle theft so companies will give you a small discount.
  • Professional Memberships – Having an affiliation with qualifying clubs or civic groups is a simple method to lower premiums when getting a car insurance quote.
  • Government Employees – Federal government employees can save as much as 8% on M-Class insurance with select insurance companies.
  • ABS and Traction Control Discounts – Anti-lock brake equipped vehicles are safer to drive and earn discounts up to 10%.
  • Multi-Vehicle Discounts – Drivers who insure multiple cars with one company could earn a price break for each car.

Don’t be shocked that most credits do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Some only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like comp or med pay. Just because it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, insurance companies wouldn’t stay in business. Any qualifying discounts will bring down your overall premium however.

Insurance coverage considerations

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This protects you and your vehicle when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, 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 coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Coverage for collisions

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your M-Class resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle, rolling your car, backing into a parked car and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, fire damage, hitting a deer and hitting a bird. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Insurance for medical payments

Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses such as prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, nursing services, chiropractic care and X-ray expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability

Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as court costs, repair costs for stationary objects, pain and suffering and loss of income. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.

Feed the piggy bank

Drivers change insurance companies for a variety of reasons including denial of a claim, poor customer service, lack of trust in their agent and even policy non-renewal. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch finding a great new company is not as difficult as it may seem.

When getting car insurance quotes online, never reduce coverage to reduce premium. In too many instances, an accident victim reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret at claim time that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your goal should be to buy the best coverage you can find at a price you can afford while not skimping on critical coverages.

Lower-priced 2006 Mercedes-Benz M-Class insurance can be sourced from both online companies and from local insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both to get a complete price analysis. Some companies may not have internet price quotes and these regional insurance providers prefer to sell through independent insurance agents.
