Consumers have a choice when looking for the best price on Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution insurance. They can either waste time contacting agents getting price quotes or use the internet to make rate comparisons.
There are both good and bad ways to buy insurance coverage so you’re going to learn the quickest way to price shop coverage for a new or used Mitsubishi and find the best price possible either online or from local insurance agents.
It’s a great practice to shop coverage around occasionally since rates change quite often. Even if you got the best deal for Lancer Evolution coverage at your last renewal a different company probably has better prices today. Forget all the misinformation about insurance coverage because you’re going to learn the fastest way to properly buy coverages and cut your premium.
Finding a better price on insurance coverage is an easy way to save money. Just take time to compare rate quotes to find out which insurance company has cheaper insurance coverage quotes. Shoppers can get rates using a couple different methods.
Hands down the most simple method to get quotes for comparison is a comparison rater form (click to open form in new window). This style of form keeps you from doing repetitive form submissions for each company. A single, simple form compares rates from many national carriers. It’s definitely the quickest method.
Another way to shop for insurance coverage online requires a trip to the website for every company you want to comare and go through the quote process again. For examples sake, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from USAA, 21st Century and GEICO. To get each rate you have to navigate to each company’s site and repeatedly enter your information, which is why the first method is more popular.

It’s up to you how you get prices quotes, just do your best to enter the exact same coverage limits and deductibles for each quote you get. If you use higher or lower deductibles it will be very difficult to get a fair rate comparison.
When it comes to buying the best insurance coverage, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Everyone’s needs are different.

Understanding the coverages of your policy aids in choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Liability coverage – Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability coverage pays for things like legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Coverage for medical expenses – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for bills for things like pain medications, prosthetic devices and EMT expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Collision coverage – This coverage pays for damage to your Lancer Evolution from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against claims like sideswiping another vehicle, damaging your car on a curb and hitting a parking meter. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, a broken windshield, theft and falling objects. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Normally the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
