Low cost insurance coverage prices

There are a lot of ways you can shop for insurance coverage and some are less labor-intensive and much quicker. You could waste time discussing policy coverages with agents in your area, or you could save time and use the web for quick rates.

Many companies enroll in a system that allows shoppers to send in one quote, and each participating company returns a competitive quote for coverage. This saves time by eliminating form submissions for each company you want a rate for. To participate in this free quote system, click to open in new window.

The single downside to comparing rates this way is you can’t choose which carriers to get pricing from. If you prefer to choose specific insurance companies to compare prices, we put together a list of low cost insurance coverage companies in your area. Click here to view list.

The method you choose is up to you, but be sure you’re using the exact same coverage data for each comparison quote. If the quotes have different coverage information it’s impossible to determine the lowest rate for your Suzuki Sidekick.

Car Insurance Discounts

Car insurance can be pricey, but there may be some discounts that many people don’t even know exist. Some discounts will apply when you quote, but less common discounts must be specifically requested before you will receive the discount.

  • Defensive Driver Discounts – Taking part in a course teaching defensive driving skills could save 5% or more and make you a better driver.
  • Save with More Vehicles Insured – Having several vehicles on the same car insurance policy can get a discount for every vehicle.
  • Home Ownership Discount – Owning a house can earn you a little savings because owning a home is proof that your finances are in order.
  • Good Student Discount – Performing well in school may save as much as 25% on a insurance quote. The good student discount can last well after school through age 25.
  • Claim-Free Discount – Insureds with no claims or accidents pay much less in comparison with accident-prone drivers.
  • Service Members Pay Less – Being deployed with a military unit can result in better premium rates.

Please keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to your bottom line cost. Some only apply to specific coverage prices like comp or med pay. Even though the math looks like adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Companies and some of the discounts include:

  • Progressive has discounts for multi-policy, online signing, continuous coverage, online quote discount, and homeowner.
  • MetLife includes discounts for claim-free, good student, accident-free, multi-policy, and good driver.
  • Mercury Insurance offers discounts including professional/association, multi-policy, good student, location of vehicle, and ease of repair.
  • Nationwide may include discounts for family plan, multi-policy, business or organization, anti-theft, easy pay, good student, and accident-free.
  • GEICO policyholders can earn discounts including defensive driver, seat belt use, multi-vehicle, federal employee, and anti-lock brakes.
  • AAA discounts include good driver, anti-theft, multi-policy, pay-in-full, good student, AAA membership discount, and education and occupation.

Before you buy a policy, ask every prospective company which discounts you may be entitled to. Some discounts may not apply to policyholders in your area.

Tailor your insurance coverage to you

When choosing coverage, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Each situation is unique.

For instance, these questions can aid in determining if your insurance needs would benefit from professional advice.

  • Should I buy only the required minimum liability coverage?
  • What is no-fault insurance?
  • Will I lose any money if I cancel my policy before it expires?
  • Do all my vehicles need collision coverage?
  • What are the best liability limits?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • When should I drop full coverage on my 1990 Suzuki Sidekick?

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 a licensed insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Car insurance coverages for a Suzuki Sidekick

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Collision insurance

This will pay to fix damage to your Sidekick from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims like hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree, rolling your car and damaging your car on a curb. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Liability car insurance

Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability insurance covers things like court costs, bail bonds and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Insurance for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for short-term medical expenses for prosthetic devices, doctor visits, hospital visits, X-ray expenses and surgery. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hail damage and fire damage. The most your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
