Save on 1996 Buick Park Avenue Car Insurance Quotes

Trying to find the cheapest insurance coverage rates for your Buick Park Avenue? Finding more affordable insurance coverage can seem to be very difficult for drivers who are beginners to online rate comparisons. With a ridiculous number of insurers available, it can easily become a ton of work to locate the lowest prices.

Consumers should take time to do rate comparisons at least once a year because insurance coverage rates go up and down regularly. Even if you think you had the lowest premium rates for Park Avenue coverage last year a different company probably has better prices today. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance coverage because I’m going to teach you the right way to lower your annual insurance bill.

How to buy car insurance

All the larger car insurance companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive provide coverage price quotes direct online. Getting prices online is quite simple as you simply enter the coverage amounts you desire as detailed in the form. After you submit the form their quoting system obtains reports for credit and driving violations and provides a quote.

Online quotes streamlines rate comparisons, but the process of having to visit each company’s website and repetitively fill out multiple forms is a waste of time. Unfortunately, it is important to do this if you want to get the best price on car insurance.

An easier way to get multiple rate quotes uses one simple form that obtains quotes from many companies. The form is fast, eliminates form submissions, and makes comparison shopping much simpler. Immediately after you send the form, it is quoted with multiple companies and you can pick your choice of the pricing results.

If a lower price is quoted, it’s easy to complete the application and purchase the new policy. This process can be completed in less than 10 minutes and may result in a nice savings.

To quickly get comparison pricing now, click here and enter your vehicle and coverage information. If you have a policy now, it’s recommended you duplicate the insurance coverages exactly as they are listed on your policy. This makes sure you’re receiving comparison quotes using the exact same coverages.

These discounts can slash insurance rates

Insurance is not cheap nor is it fun to buy but you might find some hidden discounts to reduce the price significantly. Many discounts should be triggered when you quote, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically in order for you to get them.

  • Student Driver Training – Have your child take driver’s ed class in high school.
  • Good Student – Maintaining excellent grades may save you up to 25%. Many companies even apply the discount to college students up to age 25.
  • Senior Citizen Discount – If you qualify as a senior citizen, you are able to get lower premium rates for Park Avenue coverage.
  • ABS and Traction Control Discounts – Cars that have anti-lock braking systems are much safer to drive and will save you 10% or more.
  • Passive Restraints – Factory air bags or automatic seat belts may get savings of more than 20%.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If paying your policy premium upfront rather than paying monthly you may have a lower total premium amount.
  • Theft Prevention System – Vehicles optioned with advanced anti-theft systems help deter theft and will qualify for a discount on a auto insurance quote.
  • Discounts for Good Drivers – Accident-free drivers can pay as much as 50% less for Park Avenue coverage compared to accident prone drivers.
  • Discount for Multiple Policies – If you can combine your auto and home policy with the same insurance company they may give you a discount of up to 20% off your total premium.

Remember that most of the big mark downs will not be given to your bottom line cost. Most cut individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Even though it may seem like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, that’s just not realistic.

Larger insurance companies and a selection of discounts are shown below.

  • State Farm has discounts for passive restraint, accident-free, multiple autos, Steer Clear safe driver discount, and Drive Safe & Save.
  • GEICO offers discounts including federal employee, defensive driver, driver training, seat belt use, five-year accident-free, military active duty, and anti-theft.
  • SAFECO has savings for anti-theft, accident prevention training, drive less, bundle discounts, homeowner, and teen safe driver.
  • Farmers Insurance policyholders can earn discounts including bundle discounts, distant student, homeowner, business and professional, youthful driver, and mature driver.
  • AAA includes discounts for education and occupation, pay-in-full, multi-policy, anti-theft, and AAA membership discount.
  • USAA offers discounts for loyalty savings, family discount, annual mileage, driver training, multi-vehicle, vehicle storage, and military installation.

Double check with all companies you are considering the best way to save money. Some of the discounts discussed earlier may not apply to policyholders in every state. If you would like to view companies that offer many of these discounts, follow this link.

When do I need an agent’s advice?

When buying adequate coverage, there really is not a “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s situation is unique.

For instance, these questions may help you determine whether your personal situation might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Is my dog or cat covered if injured in an accident?
  • When should my teen driver be added to my policy?
  • Do I have newly-aquired coverage?
  • Do all my vehicles need collision coverage?
  • Does insurance cover tools stolen from my truck?
  • Do I pay less for low miles?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage?
  • Am I covered when driving a rental car?
  • Is my babysitter covered when using my vehicle?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form.

Coverages available on your insurance policy

Having a good grasp of your insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.

Liability coverage

This coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people that is your fault. This coverage protects you from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined single limit or CSL that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, attorney fees, court costs, emergency aid and funeral expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This gives you protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your Buick Park Avenue.

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. Most of the time these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This coverage 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 insurance covers claims such as fire damage, falling objects, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, rock chips in glass and vandalism. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision coverage

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against claims like colliding with another moving vehicle, sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building, rolling your car and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Medical expense insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for bills like EMT expenses, doctor visits and funeral costs. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

    Thought I’d throw in my experience. I live in Jackson, MS. I quoted with Auto-Owners, MetLife, and Travelers for my 1996 Buick Park Avenue and I’m now saving $20 a month. Switched homeowners coverage too. Just go online and compare their rates. Just liability coverage since it’s getting old.

    Good site, thanks. From a town just southwest of San Antonio, Texas. Received quotes with Travelers, American Family, The General, and Nationwide for my Buick and saved about $100 a year. It was easy to get rates. I just carry liability insurance.

    Cheaper not always better. I live just to the north of Cincinnati, OH. Got free quotes online for a 1996 Buick Park Avenue. Ended up at about $90 savings annually. Went with State Farm. Left GMAC to switch. Still almost need a second mortgage. I don’t insure for physical damage though.

  12. Leola Kline

    Why are claims settled so low?

    Not sure if this is cheap. I’m in the west part of Louisville, Kentucky. I got free rates from GEICO, Auto-Owners, and some I forget for my Park Avenue and cut my rates about $100 a year. Have an at-fault accident tho. Bought it from an online quote. I don’t put full coverage on it.

  14. Sharda Wheeler

    Cheap is not always the best policy. From northwest of Bridgeport, CT. Got rates from USAA, Amica, Liberty Mutual, and Sentry for my Buick and I’m now saving $14 a month. Was with Nationwide. Anyone else drop full coverage?
