Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance coverage because you’re going to get a crash course in how to use the internet to properly buy coverages and cut your premium.

If you have a policy now or are just looking to switch companies, you can use these techniques to reduce the price you pay while maximizing coverage.

Low cost insurance coverage prices

Finding cheaper 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac insurance coverage rates is not rocket science. You just need to take a few minutes to compare free insurance coverage quotes to find the company with cheaper insurance coverage quotes. Rate comparisons can be done in just a few minutes using one of these methods.

The first (and easiest) way to find low rates is to use a rate comparison form (click to open form in new window). This style of form eliminates the need for multiple quote forms for each company. A single, simple form gets coverage cost estimates from multiple companies. It’s the fastest way to compare.

A harder way to get comparison quotes requires you to visit the website for every company you want to comare and get a separate price quote. For sake of this example, let’s say you need rates from Farmers, Safeco and GEICO. To do that, you would have to go to each individual site and repeatedly type in your coverage information, which is why most consumers use the first method.

The most difficult method to find and compare rates is driving around to and from local insurance agencies. Quoting online has reduced the need for local agents unless you’re the type of person who wants the advice and guidance of a local agent. Although you can compare the best prices online and still use a local agent.

The approach you take is up to you, just make sure you are using apples-to-apples coverages and limits on every quote. If you have different values for each quote you will not be able to make an equal comparison.

Car insurance is unique, just like you

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage, there is no cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s situation is unique.

For instance, these questions could help you determine whether you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Should I sign the liability waiver when renting a car?
  • Do I benefit by insuring my home with the same company?
  • Do I get a pro-rated refund if I cancel my policy early?
  • Is my state a no-fault state?
  • How do I insure my teen driver?
  • Do all my vehicles need collision coverage?
  • When should I not file a claim?
  • How can I force my company to pay a claim?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and can provide invaluable advice.

Car insurance coverages for a 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Having a good grasp of your policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Auto liability – This coverage can cover damage that occurs to other people or property. It protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that means you have a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000.

Liability can pay for things such as loss of income, legal defense fees, court costs and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Comprehensive car insurance – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from getting keyed, hail damage, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, theft and hitting a deer. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Coverage for medical expenses – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses such as doctor visits, rehabilitation expenses and prosthetic devices. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Collision – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage pays for things such as rolling your car, colliding with a tree, colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a mailbox and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
