Insurance quotes comparison

There are a variety of methods to compare insurance quotes, but some are less time-consuming than others. You could waste a few hours discussing policy coverages with insurance companies in your area, or you can utilize the internet to get rate comparisons in just a few minutes.

Many of the larger companies enroll in a system that allows shoppers to only type in their quote data once, and each participating company can give them a price based on that data. This system prevents you from having to do quote forms for each company you want a rate for. To fill out one form to compare multiple rates now click to open in new window.

The one downside to using this type of form is that you can’t choose the insurers you will receive quotes from. So if you prefer to pick individual companies to receive pricing from, we have assembled a list of insurance companies in your area. View list of insurance companies.

How you compare quotes is your choice, just do your best to enter the same coverage limits and deductibles on every quote you get. If each company quotes unequal deductibles or liability limits you can’t possibly determine which company has the best rates.

Buyer beware of car insurance advertising tricks

Drivers constantly see and hear ads for cheaper car insurance by State Farm, Allstate and Geico. They all seem to say the same thing that drivers will save a bundle if you just switch your policy.

It sounds good, but how can they all claim to save you money? It’s all in the words they use.

All the different companies provide the lowest rates for the type of customer that makes them money. A good example of this type of driver may need to be a female over age 40, owns a home, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. Any new insured who fits that profile will get a cheap rate quote and therefore will pay quite a bit less when switching companies.

Potential customers who are not a match for those criteria will see a more expensive rate and this results in business going elsewhere. The ad wording is “customers that switch” not “everyone that quotes” can get the lowest rates when switching. That’s the way insurance companies can confidently make it sound like they have such great prices.

This really emphasizes why it’s extremely important to compare quotes as often as possible. It’s just too difficult to predict the company that will give you lower premium rates than your current company.

Save a ton by earning discounts

Companies that sell car insurance don’t always publicize every possible discount very well, so we researched both well-publicized and also the more inconspicuous credits available to lower your premiums when you buy insurance coverage online.

  • Multi-policy Discount – If you have multiple policies with the same insurance company you could save up to 20% off your total premium.
  • Multiple Cars – Buying insurance for primary and secondary vehicles with one company could earn a price break for each car.
  • Sign Online – Some of the larger companies may give you up to $50 for signing up on your computer.
  • Life Insurance Discount – If the company offers life insurance, you could get better premium rates if you take out a life policy as well.
  • Discounts for Cautious Drivers – Insureds without accidents may receive a discount up to 45% for Corolla coverage than drivers with accident claims.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If paying your policy premium upfront rather than paying in monthly installments you can actually save on your bill.
  • Telematics Devices – People who choose to allow driving data collection to track their driving habits remotely such as Progressive’s Snapshot might get better premium rates if they are good drivers.
  • Anti-lock Brake Discount – Vehicles with ABS braking systems or traction control have fewer accidents and earn discounts up to 10%.
  • Claim Free – Drivers who don’t have accidents pay less compared to drivers who are more careless.
  • 55 and Retired – Drivers over the age of 55 may qualify for lower premium rates for Corolla coverage.

Remember that most credits do not apply to the entire cost. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. Even though it appears you can get free auto insurance, it doesn’t quite work that way.

Larger auto insurance companies and their offered discounts are outlined below.

  • State Farm offers discounts for accident-free, Steer Clear safe driver discount, multiple policy, student away at school, and safe vehicle.
  • Geico may include discounts for seat belt use, good student, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, air bags, and federal employee.
  • Liberty Mutual may offer discounts for multi-car, new vehicle discount, teen driver discount, good student, preferred payment discount, safety features, and hybrid vehicle.
  • The Hartford policyholders can earn discounts including good student, vehicle fuel type, bundle, driver training, defensive driver, air bag, and anti-theft.
  • MetLife offers discounts including accident-free, good driver, multi-policy, claim-free, good student, and defensive driver.
  • Progressive discounts include multi-vehicle, online quote discount, online signing, good student, continuous coverage, homeowner, and multi-policy.

If you need lower rates, check with every company which discounts you qualify for. Some discounts listed above may not be offered everywhere.

Car insurance 101

Having a good grasp of a insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Insurance for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills for things like nursing services, funeral costs, rehabilitation expenses and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Usually these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.

Liability coverage

This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage pays for things such as legal defense fees, structural damage and funeral expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with a tree, rolling your car, driving through your garage door and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive can pay for things such as a broken windshield, damage from flooding, hail damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from getting keyed. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Stretch your dollar

When searching for cheap insurance coverage quotes, it’s not a good idea to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. Too many times, consumers will sacrifice comprehensive coverage or liability limits to discover at claim time that a couple dollars of savings turned into a financial nightmare. Your strategy should be to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest cost while not skimping on critical coverages.

People who switch companies do it for a variety of reasons including denial of a claim, high prices, not issuing a premium refund or even an unsatisfactory settlement offer. No matter why you want to switch, finding the right insurance provider is not as difficult as it may seem.

Low-cost 1990 Toyota Corolla insurance is attainable on the web as well as from independent agents, and you should be comparing both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. There are still a few companies who do not provide internet price quotes and usually these small insurance companies provide coverage only through independent agents.

    If you’re a decent driver and are close to Knoxville, TN, check out Allstate. You might save some money. Good savings if you bundle. You can get a rate quote online. Book value doesn’t justify full coverage anymore.
