Have you fallen victim to an expensive insurance coverage policy? You’re in good company because many consumers are feeling buyer’s remorse and feel like there’s no way out.
There is such a variety of insurance companies to insure vehicles with, and even though it’s nice to have a choice, lots of choices makes it harder to find the best rates.
Car insurance is neither fun to buy or cheap, but you may find discounts that you may not even know about. Most are applied when you complete an application, but a few must be inquired about before they will apply.
We need to note that most discounts do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most cut specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. Despite the appearance that you can get free auto insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

When it comes to choosing the right insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions could help you determine if your insurance needs may require specific advice.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier
Knowing the specifics of auto insurance aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverage types available from auto insurance companies.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as rock chips in glass, hitting a bird, hail damage, a broken windshield and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This coverage gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Jeep Commander.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Medical expense insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for expenses for things like surgery, prosthetic devices, funeral costs, EMT expenses and nursing services. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability coverages – Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people in an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for claims like legal defense fees, medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, court costs and structural damage. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.
Collision coverage – Collision insurance pays for damage to your Commander resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. 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 scraping a guard rail, crashing into a building, driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car and colliding with another moving vehicle. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Some companies may not provide rates over the internet and many times these regional insurance providers provide coverage only through independent insurance agents.
When trying to cut insurance costs, make sure you don’t buy less coverage just to save a little money. In many instances, an insured dropped uninsured motorist or liability limits only to find out that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. The proper strategy is to buy a smart amount of coverage at the best cost, but do not skimp to save money.
