Want lower insurance coverage rates for your Buick Century? Feel like you’re a prisoner to overpriced insurance coverage? Believe me, there are many people just like you.
There is such a variety of auto insurance companies to buy insurance from, and even though it’s nice to have a choice, too many choices makes it more difficult to compare rates and find the lowest cost insurance coverage.
Buying car insurance is not cheap, but there could be significant discounts to cut the cost considerably. Some discounts will apply when you complete an application, but some may not be applied and must be asked for before you will receive the discount.
As a disclaimer on discounts, most of the big mark downs will not be given to the entire cost. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. So when it seems like you can get free auto insurance, car insurance companies aren’t that generous.
Popular car insurance companies and their possible discounts are shown below.
Before you buy a policy, ask each company or agent which credits you are entitled to. Some credits might not be offered on policies in your area.
To find low cost insurance coverage quotes, there are several ways to compare rate quotes from local insurance companies. By far the easiest way to find the cheapest 1993 Buick Century insurance rates is to get quotes online. This is very easy and can be done using a couple different methods.
The most efficient method to get quotes would be an industry-wide quote request form like this one (opens in new window). This style of form keeps you from doing multiple quote forms for each price estimate. One form submission gets prices estimates from many national carriers.
Another way to find more affordable insurance requires a trip to the website for every company you want to comare and request a quote. For instance, let’s assume you want to compare prices for State Farm, Progressive and Farmers. In order to compare rates, you need to visit each site and enter your policy data, which is why the first method is more popular.

However you get your quotes, ensure you are comparing equivalent coverages and limits on every quote. If you compare different deductibles it will be nearly impossible to determine the lowest rate for your Buick Century. Having just a slight variation in coverage limits can mean a large discrepancy in price. Just remember that comparing more rates from different companies helps locate a lower rate than you’re paying now. Some regional insurers cannot provide online quotes, so you also need to get quotes from the smaller companies as well.
A large part of saving on car insurance is knowing the different types of things that go into determining the level of your policy premiums. When you know what positively or negatively positively or negatively impacts your premiums, this allows you to make educated decisions that could help you find much lower annual insurance costs. Multiple criteria are used in the calculation when premium rates are determined. Some of the criteria are obvious such as traffic violations, but some are less apparent such as whether you are married or how financially stable you are.
When it comes to choosing adequate coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no “perfect” insurance plan. Every insured’s situation is different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions can aid in determining if your insurance needs would benefit from an agent’s advice.
If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. If you don’t have a local agent, fill out this quick form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

This coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Buick Century.
Due to the fact that many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

They are used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. It covers you and your occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 which means $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses, court costs, loss of income and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy as much as you can afford.
This covers damage to your Century from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision insurance covers claims such as scraping a guard rail, sideswiping another vehicle and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. You can also bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
This pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like falling objects, hitting a bird, hitting a deer, theft and rock chips in glass. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
