Have you finally had enough of paying out the nose to pay your auto insurance bill each month? You have the same problem as most other consumers.
Since consumers have many companies and agents to choose from, it is very difficult to choose the most affordable company.
Most of the larger companies such as State Farm, GEICO and Progressive allow you to get prices from their websites. Doing online quotes is quite simple because it’s just a matter of typing in as requested by the quote form. After you submit the form their quoting system gets your credit score and driving record and quotes a price based on the information you submitted. Online price quotes helps simplify price comparisons, but the time it takes to visit each company’s website and repetitively type in your information can be a bit repetitive. But it’s necessary to get many rate quotes in order to get the lowest possible prices on insurance.
A less time-consuming method to find better insurance pricing uses one simple form that gets prices from several companies at one time. This type of form saves time, reduces the work, and makes online shopping much simpler. After your information is entered, it gets priced and you can select any one of the pricing results.
If you find a better price you can simply submit the application and buy the policy. The whole process takes 15 minutes at the most and could lower your rates considerably.
In order to fill out one form to compare multiple rates now, click here and submit the form. If you have a policy now, it’s recommended you complete the form with coverages and limits as close as possible to your current policy. This helps ensure you will have comparison quotes for similar insurance coverage.
When buying the best insurance coverage coverage, there isn’t really a cookie cutter policy. Every situation is different and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining if your insurance needs will benefit from professional help.
If you can’t answer these questions but you know they apply to you, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form or go to this page to view a list of companies.
Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find the normal coverages found on most insurance policies.
UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Porsche Cayman.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Comprehensive auto coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, vandalism, a broken windshield, falling objects and hitting a bird. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical payments and PIP coverage – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for surgery, funeral costs, doctor visits, ambulance fees and dental work. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
Liability car insurance – Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, legal defense fees and medical expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Collision coverage – Collision insurance covers damage to your Cayman from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
