1993 Toyota Land Cruiser Car Insurance Cost – 10 Policy Discounts

Wish you could get out of an underperforming, overpriced auto insurance policy? Trust us, many drivers feel the same as you. Multiple insurers compete for your insurance dollar, so it’s not easy to compare every provider to find the lowest cost out there.

If you have insurance now or are shopping for new coverage, you will benefit by learning to shop for the lowest rates and possibly find even better coverage. Finding the best rates is easy if you know what you’re doing. Drivers only need an understanding of the most effective way to get comparison rates online.

Low cost insurance coverage price quotes

There are a lot of ways to shop for insurance coverage, but one way is less time-consuming than others. You can waste a few hours (or days) talking to insurance agencies in your area, or you could save time and use online quoting to get rates in a matter of minutes.

All the larger companies participate in a marketplace that enables customers to enter their coverage request one time, and at least one company can give them a price based on that data. This system prevents you from having to do quote forms to every company. To get comparison pricing now click here to open in new window.

The only downside to pricing coverage this way is you don’t know exactly the providers you want to price. If you prefer to choose from a list of companies to receive pricing from, we have a listing of low cost insurance coverage companies in your area. Click here for list of insurance companies.

However you get your quotes, be sure to compare exactly the same deductibles and coverage limits with each company. If you compare different limits and deductibles on each one then you won’t be able to get a fair rate comparison.

Get cheap insurance rates with discounts

Companies offering auto insurance don’t always publicize every policy discount in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of some of the best known and the more hidden discounts that may be available. If you’re not getting every credit you qualify for, you are just wasting money.

  • Distant Student Discount – Youth drivers who are attending college and won’t have access to an insured vehicle may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Insurance carriers who offer life insurance give a small discount if you purchase life insurance.
  • ABS Braking Discount – Cars with ABS braking systems or traction control can avoid accidents and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Pay Upfront and Save – By paying your entire bill at once as opposed to paying monthly you can actually save on your bill.
  • Defensive Driver – Passing a safe driver course could save 5% or more and also improve your driving technique.
  • Low Mileage – Low mileage vehicles could qualify for cheaper prices.
  • Paperless Signup – Some insurance companies will give you a small discount just for signing your application online.
  • Mature Driver Discount – If you’re over the age of 55, you may receive lower premium rates on Land Cruiser insurance.
  • Accident Forgiveness Coverage – but a few companies such as Geico, State Farm, and Progressive allow you one accident before hitting you with a surcharge so long as you haven’t had any claims prior to being involved in the accident.
  • Air Bag Discount – Vehicles equipped with air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems can receive discounts up to 30%.

Don’t be surprised that many deductions do not apply to the entire cost. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. Even though it appears all those discounts means the company will pay you, nobody gets a free ride.

Tailor your auto insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage for your vehicles, there is no single plan that fits everyone. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs and your policy should reflect that. These are some specific questions might point out if you will benefit from professional help.

  • Does insurance cover damages from a DUI accident?
  • Why does it cost so much to insure a teen driver?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?
  • Is rental equipment covered for theft or damage?
  • If I drive on a suspended license am I covered?
  • Can I rate high risk drivers on liability-only vehicles?
  • Where can I find high-risk insurance?
  • Does liability extend to a camper or trailer?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies. It’s fast, free and can help protect your family.

Don’t be fooled by advertising claims

Consumers can’t avoid all the ads that claim the cheapest premium rates by companies like Allstate and Progressive. They all seem to advertise the message that you’ll save big if you move your insurance coverage to their company.

How does every insurance company charge you a lower premium? This is the trick they use.

Insurance providers have underwriting criteria for the type of driver that will be a good risk. A good example of a desirable risk may need to be over age 30, has no claims, and drives a safe vehicle. Anybody who meets those qualifications receives the best rates and will pay quite a bit less when switching companies.

People who cannot meet those criteria may be forced to pay higher premiums and business not being written. If you pay attention, the ads say “people that switch” not “everyone who quotes” save the amount stated. This is how companies can truthfully state the savings. This really drives home the point why you need to get insurance coverage quotes from several different companies. It’s impossible to know which insurance companies will give you the biggest savings.

Coverage specifics

Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverages found on most insurance policies.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea.

Collision – This coverage pays for damage to your Land Cruiser resulting from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a mailbox, crashing into a building and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

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

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, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability insurance covers claims like pain and suffering, legal defense fees and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy higher limits if possible.

Medical expense coverage – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for expenses for things like hospital visits, doctor visits and rehabilitation expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive protection – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hail damage, theft and damage from getting keyed. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Compare but don’t skimp

When shopping online for insurance, it’s a bad idea to buy less coverage just to save a little money. In too many instances, an insured cut physical damage coverage and discovered at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. Your strategy should be to find the BEST coverage for the lowest cost.

Discount 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser insurance is available both online and also from your neighborhood agents, and you need to comparison shop both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance companies may not have the ability to get a quote online and usually these smaller companies work with independent insurance agents.

We just presented some good ideas how you can shop for 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser insurance online. The key concept to understand is the more price quotes you have, the higher the chance of saving money. Drivers may discover the best price on insurance is with a lesser-known regional company. Regional companies may have significantly lower rates on certain market segments compared to the large companies like State Farm and Allstate.
