2009 Cadillac Escalade Insurance Quotes – 7 Tips for Cheaper Rates

Searching for cheaper car insurance rates for your Cadillac Escalade? No one likes buying car insurance, especially when the cost is way too high.

Having so many insurance companies to choose from, it is hard for the average consumer to pick the most cost effective insurance company.

It’s important to shop coverage around every six months since insurance rates fluctuate regularly. If you had the lowest rate on Escalade insurance last year other companies may now be cheaper. Block out anything you think you know about car insurance because you’re about to find out the quickest way to reduce your cost while improving coverage.

Choosing the best insurance company for you is not rocket science. Essentially everyone who shops for insurance coverage will be able to save money. But consumers need to have an understanding of how insurance companies market insurance on the web and apply this information to your search.

More affordable rates with these seven discounts

Some insurance providers don’t always list the entire discount list in an easy-to-find place, so we researched some of the more common and the harder-to-find insurance savings.

  • College Student Discount – living away from home attending college and do not have access to a covered vehicle could get you a discount.
  • Multi-Vehicle Discounts – Buying coverage for several vehicles on one policy can reduce rates for all insured vehicles.
  • Sign Online – Some companies provide a small discount for completing your application on their website.
  • Homeowners Pay Less – Being a homeowner can save you money because owning a home demonstrates responsibility.
  • Mature Driver Discount – Drivers over the age of 55 can possibly qualify for a small discount on rates on Escalade insurance.
  • Auto/Home Discount – When you combine your auto and homeowners insurance with the same company you could earn a discount of up to 20% and get you the cheapest insurance coverage.
  • Discounts for Cautious Drivers – Safe drivers could pay up to 40% less on Escalade insurance than less cautious drivers.

Please keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given the the whole policy. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. Even though it may seem like adding up those discounts means a free policy, you’re out of luck.

A few of the larger companies and their possible discounts are included below.

  • Farm Bureau has discounts for multi-policy, multi-vehicle, driver training, 55 and retired, and youthful driver.
  • State Farm offers discounts for good driver, safe vehicle, student away at school, defensive driving training, Steer Clear safe driver discount, and Drive Safe & Save.
  • Progressive offers discounts including continuous coverage, good student, multi-vehicle, online signing, multi-policy, and online quote discount.
  • Allstate discounts include good student, multi-policy, eSmart discount, anti-theft, anti-lock brakes, and new car.
  • Nationwide may include discounts for accident-free, good student, Farm Bureau membership, anti-theft, business or organization, family plan, and easy pay.
  • MetLife policyholders can earn discounts including good student, defensive driver, accident-free, claim-free, multi-policy, good driver

Before you buy a policy, ask every company which credits you are entitled to. Some credits may not apply to policies in your area. To see insurance companies that offer many of these discounts, click this link.

Auto insurance can be complex

When it comes to choosing adequate coverage, there really is no perfect coverage plan. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions could help you determine if your insurance needs would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Where can I find DUI or SR-22 insurance?
  • Should I have combined single limit or split liability limits?
  • When would I need rental car insurance?
  • Am I covered when renting a car or should I buy coverage from the car rental agency?
  • Am I covered when using my vehicle for business?
  • What is roadside assistance coverage?
  • Do I really need UM/UIM coverage?
  • What if I total my 2009 Cadillac Escalade and owe more than it’s worth?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Will you really save $478 on insurance?

Popular insurance providers such as State Farm and Allstate seem to constantly run television and radio advertisements. They all state the claim that you can save if you just switch your insurance coverage to their company. That’s great but how can every company give you a lower rate? This is the way they can do it.

Insurance providers offer their best rates for the type of customer they prefer to insure. For example, a profitable risk profile could possibly be between the ages of 30 and 50, has a low-risk occupation, and drives newer vehicles. A driver who matches those parameters will get a cheap rate quote and as a result will probably save money with a new company.

Consumers who may not quite match these stringent criteria will be charged higher premium rates which usually ends up with the customer not purchasing. The ad wording is “drivers that switch” but not “all drivers who get quotes” save that much when switching. That’s why insurance companies can confidently make those claims. Each company has different criteria, so you really should do a price quote comparison at every renewal. It is impossible to guess the company that will have better prices than you’re paying now.

Auto insurance coverages

Knowing the specifics of car insurance can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverage types found on most car insurance policies.

Coverage for liability

Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property. Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability can pay for things like funeral expenses, legal defense fees, loss of income, structural damage and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Cadillac Escalade.

Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.

Medical expense insurance

Med pay and PIP coverage pay for expenses for things like nursing services, doctor visits and surgery. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers both the driver and occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for 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 can pay for claims like damage from a tornado or hurricane, theft, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and rock chips in glass. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Collision coverage protection

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with a tree, crashing into a building, damaging your car on a curb, backing into a parked car and crashing into a ditch. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Online plus local equals savings

When getting insurance coverage quotes online, never reduce needed coverages to save money. There have been many cases where an insured cut full coverage and learned later that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. The aim is to purchase a proper amount of coverage for the lowest cost, not the least amount of coverage.

In this article, we presented some good ideas how to save on 2009 Cadillac Escalade insurance. The key thing to remember is the more quotes you get, the better chance you’ll have of finding the cheapest insurance coverage. Consumers may even find the lowest priced insurance comes from some of the lesser-known companies. They may only write in your state and offer lower premium rates than their larger competitors like State Farm or Progressive.

Some insurance providers may not have price quotes online small, regional companies prefer to sell through independent insurance agencies. Cheaper insurance is available on the web as well as from insurance agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money.
