How to buy insurance coverage online

The are a couple different ways to obtain and compare prices from lots of insurance coverage companies. One of the best ways to comparison shop is to jump online and get quotes. This can be accomplished in just a few minutes using one of these methods.

  1. The fastest and easiest way to get quotes for comparison is an all-inclusive rate comparison like this one (opens in new window). This method eliminates the need for separate forms for each company you want a rate for. One form submission gets prices estimates from insurance coverage companies with the best prices.
  2. A harder way to find lower rates requires a visit to each company website and request a quote. For sake of this example, let’s say you want rates from State Farm, Progressive and Allstate. To get rate quotes you would need to go to every website and enter your policy data, which can take a lot of time. For a handy list of car insurance company links in your area, click here.
  3. The most time-consuming way to comparison shop rate quotes is to spend your day driving to insurance agencies in your area. Comparing rates online eliminates the middleman unless you want the guidance that you can only get from talking to an agent. It is possible with some companies obtain prices from the web and have a local agent actually service the policy.

However you get your quotes, be certain you are entering the same quote information on every price quote you get. If you compare differing limits then you won’t be able to determine which company has the best rates. Having just a slight variation in insurance coverages or limits could skew the results. And when quoting insurance coverage, remember that comparing a wide range of rates helps you find the best offered rates.

Lower-cost auto insurance rates with discounts

Auto insurance is neither fun to buy or cheap, but there could be available discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Certain reductions will be credited at the time of purchase, but some may not be applied and must be asked for before you get the savings.

  • Waiver for an Accident – Not necessarily a discount, but a handful of insurance companies permit an accident without the usual rate increase as long as you don’t have any claims prior to being involved in the accident.
  • Discounts for Seat Belt Usage – Requiring all passengers to fasten their seat belts may be able to save a few bucks off PIP or medical payments premium.
  • Paperwork-free – A few larger online companies give back up to $50 simply for signing on their website.
  • Payment Method – By making one initial payment rather than paying in monthly installments you can avoid monthly service charges.
  • Student Discounts – This discount may save as much as 25% on a car insurance quote. The good student discount can last up until you turn 25.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Companies who offer life insurance give a break if you buy a life policy as well.

While discounts sound great, it’s important to understand that most of the big mark downs will not be given the the whole policy. Some only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. Despite the appearance that having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, nobody gets a free ride.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s needs are different and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions might point out whether you might need professional guidance.

  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?
  • Do I really need UM/UIM coverage?
  • Does my personal policy cover me when driving out-of-state?
  • Why am I required to buy liability insurance?
  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?
  • When should I buy a commercial auto policy?
  • Can I get a multi-policy discount?
  • Am I covered by my spouse’s policy after a separation?
  • Can I make deliveries for my home business?
  • What is the rate difference between pleasure use and commuting?

If you can’t answer these questions but one or more may apply to you, you might consider talking to a licensed insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.

Car insurance policy specifics

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverages offered by car insurance companies.

Collision coverage

This covers damage to your Taurus caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision can pay for things such as crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail, hitting a parking meter and colliding with a tree. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for immediate expenses for things like X-ray expenses, chiropractic care, nursing services and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your 1992 Ford Taurus.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Liability insurance

This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. This coverage protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability insurance covers things like loss of income, medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects and medical services. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive coverages

This covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a bird, a broken windshield, falling objects and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
