The least efficient method to price shop rates is to spend time driving to local insurance agencies. Shopping for auto insurance online eliminates this option unless your situation requires the trained advice that only an agent can give. It is possible with some companies obtain prices from the web but buy from a local insurance agent.

It’s your choice how you get your quotes, but ensure you’re using equivalent coverages for every company. If each company quotes different deductibles it will be nearly impossible to get a fair rate comparison. Having just a slight variation in coverages may result in large price differences. Just keep in mind that comparing a large number of companies provides better odds of finding a better price. Some companies don’t provide online price quotes, so it’s important to also get price estimates from the smaller companies as well.

Parts of your car insurance policy

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Car insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the usual coverages available from car insurance companies.

Auto liability insurance

Liability coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers claims like court costs, medical expenses, pain and suffering and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible.

Auto collision coverage

Collision insurance pays for damage to your Shadow 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 pays for things like sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door and hitting a parking meter. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive car insurance

This coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield, falling objects, hitting a deer and fire damage. The highest amount your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Coverage for medical expenses

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like surgery, X-ray expenses, rehabilitation expenses and funeral costs. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your 1994 Dodge Shadow.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family.

A tidy conclusion

When trying to cut insurance costs, don’t be tempted to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many instances, someone sacrificed comprehensive coverage or liability limits and discovered at claim time that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your aim should be to get the best coverage possible for the lowest cost and still be able to protect your assets.

We just showed you quite a bit of information on how to get a better price on 1994 Dodge Shadow insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more times you quote, the better chance you’ll have of finding affordable insurance coverage. Drivers may discover the most savings is with an unexpected company. They often have lower prices on specific markets than their larger competitors like Progressive and GEICO.
