Do you qualify for these seven discounts?

Car insurance companies don’t list every discount they offer in an easy-to-find place, so the following list contains some of the best known and also the lesser-known car insurance savings. If you are not receiving all the discounts you qualify for, it’s possible you qualify for a lower rate.

  • Passenger Safety Discount – Vehicles with factory air bags may qualify for discounts of 20% or more.
  • E-sign Discounts – Certain companies may give you up to $50 simply for signing on the internet.
  • Federal Employees – Active or former government employment may reduce rates when you quote insurance for Express Cargo insurance depending on your car insurance provider.
  • Drivers Ed for Students – Reduce the cost of insurance for teen drivers by having them enroll and complete driver’s education if it’s offered in school.
  • First Accident Forgiveness – Not a discount per se, but a few companies such as GEICO, Progressive, and Allstate permit an accident without the usual rate increase if your claims history is clear for a specific time period.

Don’t assume everyone needs the same auto insurance coverage

  • What are the financial responsibility laws in my state?
  • Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
  • Is my Chevy Express Cargo covered if I use it for business?
  • Am I covered if I wreck a rental car?
  • Can I make deliveries for my home business?

Auto insurance policy specifics

Learning about specific coverages of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.

Liability coverages

Liability insurance will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage pays for claims like medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, court costs and attorney fees. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from a tornado or hurricane and hail damage. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Medical costs insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses for prosthetic devices, pain medications and surgery. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

UM/UIM Coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Chevy Express Cargo.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage covers damage to your Express Cargo caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage protects against things such as crashing into a building, driving through your garage door and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
