How to compare insurance coverage rate quotes

Finding cheaper 2009 Chrysler Town and Country insurance coverage rates doesn’t have to be difficult. You just have to invest a little time to compare rate quotes online with multiple companies. Comparing prices online can be done by using one of the methods below.

  1. If you don’t have a lot of time, the easiest way to get the best comparison quotes is to use a rate comparison form (click to open form in new window). This type of form keeps you from doing repetitive form submissions for every company. In just a few minutes this one form will return price quotes from insurance coverage companies with the best prices. Just one form and you’re done.
  2. A different way to find better pricing consists of going to each company’s website and get a separate price quote. For sake of this example, we’ll assume you want to compare Auto-Owners, GEICO and Liberty Mutual. To get rate quotes you would need to take the time to go to each site to enter the same coverage data repeatedly, which is why most consumers use the first method.

  3. Even if you have time, the least recommended method to do your price quoting is calling or driving to insurance agencies in your area. Buying insurance online reduces the need to sit down with an agent unless you want the guidance that only a licensed agent can provide. You can, however, comparison shop your insurance online and still use a local agent.

However you get your quotes, be sure you’re using the exact same coverage data for every company. If your comparisons have higher or lower deductibles it will be nearly impossible to get a fair rate comparison.

Insurance coverage companies offer many discounts

Some companies don’t always publicize all their discounts very well, so the list below details a few of the more common and also the lesser-known credits available to you.

  • Driver’s Ed – Reduce the cost of insurance for teen drivers by having them take driver’s ed class in school or through a local driver safety program.
  • Seat Belts Save more than Lives – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to wear their seat belts can save 10% or more on the premium charged for medical payments and/or PIP.
  • Telematics Devices – Drivers who elect to allow their company to scrutinize where and when they drive by using a telematic data system like In-Drive from State Farm and Progressive’s Snapshot might see lower rates as long as the data is positive.
  • Low Mileage Discounts – Low annual miles may enable drivers to earn slightly better rates than normal.
  • Multi-policy Discount – If you combine your auto and homeowners policies and place coverage with the same company you could earn a discount of up to 20% and get you inexpensive auto insurance.

Don’t be shocked that most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Some only reduce individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. So despite the fact that it appears adding up those discounts means a free policy, you won’t be that lucky.

Insurance companies that may offer these benefits include:

When quoting, ask each company or agent to give you their best rates. Savings may not be offered in your area. To choose insurers that have a full spectrum of discounts, click here to view.

  • What is an SR-22 filing?
  • What is roadside assistance coverage?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but one or more may apply to you then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form. It is quick, free and you can get the answers you need.

Car insurance coverages for a Chrysler Town and Country

Knowing the specifics of car insurance helps when choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for expenses for hospital visits, prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, ambulance fees and pain medications. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Chrysler Town and Country.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is very important. Most of the time these coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Collision insurance

Collision insurance pays for damage to your Town and Country from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for claims like scraping a guard rail, crashing into a building and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability auto insurance

This will cover damage that occurs to other’s property or people. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage protects against things like attorney fees, funeral expenses, medical expenses and legal defense fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
