2008 Ford Econoline Cargo Insurance Cost

Buyers have options when searching for affordable Ford Econoline Cargo insurance. They can either waste time contacting agents to get rate comparisons or leverage the internet to get rate quotes.

There are both good and bad ways to find car insurance online so we’re going to tell you the quickest way to quote coverages for a Ford and get the best price possible either online or from local insurance agents.

Which auto insurance is cheapest?

Finding a better price on auto insurance is surprisingly easy. The only thing you need to do is spend a little time comparing free car insurance quotes from online providers. It is quite easy and can be accomplished using one of these methods.

  • The most recommended method to compare a lot of rates at once would be an industry-wide quote request form (click to open form in new window). This style of form prevents you from having to do repetitive form entry for every auto insurance company. One quote request will return price quotes from many national carriers. Just one form and you’re done.
  • Another way to get comparison quotes requires you to visit the website of each company and complete a new quote form. For example, let’s assume you are doing a rate comparison from Nationwide, Liberty Mutual and Travelers. To get rate quotes you would need to go to every website and enter your policy data, which is why the first method is quicker. For a list of links to companies insuring cars in your area, click here.
  • The hardest way to find lower rates is going to local insurance agencies. Shopping for auto insurance online reduces the need to sit down with an agent unless your situation requires the professional guidance of an agent trained in personal lines coverage. Although, it is possible compare the best prices online but purchase the actual policy in an agency.

It’s up to you which method you use, but compare exactly the same coverage limits for each price quote. If you are comparing different limits and deductibles on each one it’s impossible to make a fair rate comparison.

Lower-cost auto insurance rates with discounts

The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but there could be available discounts to cut the cost considerably. Many discounts should be triggered when you purchase, but less common discounts must be manually applied before being credited.

  • Seat Belt Discounts – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to buckle up could save 15% off the PIP or medical payment premium.
  • Life Insurance – Some companies give a discounted price on car insurance if you buy auto and life insurance together.
  • E-sign – Some auto insurance companies will give you a small discount shop car insurance on the internet.
  • Distant College Student Discount – Children who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from home and do not have access to a covered vehicle may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Accident Forgiveness Coverage – This isn’t a discount exactly, but a few companies such as GEICO and Liberty Mutual permit an accident without getting socked with a rate hike if you are claim-free for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Multiple Cars – Drivers who insure primary and secondary vehicles on the same auto insurance policy may reduce the rate for each vehicle.
  • Anti-lock Brake Discount – Cars that have anti-lock braking systems are safer to drive and qualify for as much as a 10% discount.
  • Telematics Discount – Insureds who allow their auto insurance company to analyze driving habits through the use of a telematics system like In-Drive from State Farm and Progressive’s Snapshot could possibly reduce rates as long as they are good drivers.
  • Organization Discounts – Participating in a qualifying organization can get you a small discount when getting a car insurance quote.
  • Theft Prevention System – Cars, trucks, and SUVs optioned with advanced anti-theft systems are stolen less frequently and can earn a small discount on your policy.

Discounts lower rates, but some of the credits will not apply to the entire cost. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. If you do the math and it seems like you could get a free auto insurance policy, nobody gets a free ride.

Tailor your auto insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying proper insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no cookie cutter policy. Each situation is unique.

For example, these questions might point out if you could use an agent’s help.

  • Can I rent a car in Mexico?
  • How do I file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?
  • Where can I find DUI or SR-22 insurance?
  • Is other people’s property covered if stolen from my vehicle?
  • Am I covered when delivering products for my home-based business?
  • How much liability coverage do I need in my state?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but you think they might apply to your situation then you might want to talk to an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, simply complete this short form. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Auto insurance coverages

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine the right coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Usually these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

Collision coverages – This covers damage to your Econoline Cargo resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a parking meter, driving through your garage door and crashing into a building. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive insurance – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield and falling objects. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Liability car insurance – Liability insurance protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for things such as structural damage, medical services, medical expenses and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like prosthetic devices, surgery, doctor visits and ambulance fees. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers you and your occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
