Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but there are discounts available to cut the cost considerably. Certain credits will be shown when you purchase, but occassionally some discounts must be requested specifically before being credited.
One thing to note about discounts is that most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. So even though they make it sound like you can get free auto insurance, that’s just not realistic. But any discount will cut your overall bill.
A list of companies and the discounts they provide are shown below.

This provides protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Pontiac Torrent.
Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually the UM/UIM limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage protects against claims such as medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects and pain and suffering. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Med pay and PIP coverage pay for bills such as pain medications, X-ray expenses and dental work. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision coverage covers damage to your Torrent resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for claims like sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a parking meter, crashing into a ditch and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like hail damage, falling objects, rock chips in glass, a broken windshield and hitting a bird. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
More affordable auto insurance can be found from both online companies as well as from insurance agents, so you should compare both to have the best selection. A few companies do not offer rates over the internet and usually these smaller companies work with independent agents.
We’ve covered many ways to lower your 2006 Pontiac Torrent insurance rates. It’s most important to understand that the more rate comparisons you have, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may even discover the lowest rates come from the smaller companies.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s not a good idea to reduce coverage to reduce premium. There are too many instances where someone dropped uninsured motorist or liability limits and found out when filing a claim they didn’t purchase enough coverage. The aim is to buy a smart amount of coverage at a price you can afford, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.
