There are both good and bad ways to find insurance coverage online and you need to know the quickest way to price shop coverage for a Ford and get the cheapest rates either online or from local insurance agents.

Buying cheaper coverage is not that difficult. If you have a policy now or are looking for a new policy, you can learn to find the best rates and possibly find even better coverage. Drivers only need an understanding of the most efficient way to find the lowest price on the web.

How to buy auto insurance online

Finding a lower price on 2009 Ford Flex insurance isn’t really that difficult. Just take the time getting comparison quotes provided by online insurance companies. This can be accomplished in a couple of different ways.

The first (and easiest) way to find low rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison click to view form in new window. This method prevents you from having to do a different quote for every prospective company. One simple form will get you rate comparisons from auto insurance companies with the best prices. This is by far the quickest method.

A less efficient way to find lower rates is to take the time to go to each individual company website to request a price quote. For example, let’s assume you want to compare rates from Nationwide, Progressive and Allstate. To get each rate you have to spend time going to each site individually to enter the same coverage data repeatedly, which is why first method is reommended.

The most difficult method to get rate quotes to and from local insurance agencies. Buying insurance online makes this process obsolete unless you require the trained advice that can only be provided by a licensed insurance agent. However, consumers can price shop your coverage online but have a local agent actually write the policy.

You can choose any of those ways to find more affodable coverage, but do your best to use nearly identical coverages for every company. If you are comparing different coverage information it will be impossible to make a fair comparison for your Ford Flex.

These discounts can cut insurance rates

Auto insurance companies do not advertise all disounts in a way that’s easy to find, so we researched both well-publicized in addition to some of the lesser obvious ways to save on insurance.

  • Responsible Driver Discount – Drivers who don’t get into accidents can pay as much as 50% less for Flex insurance than less cautious drivers.
  • Waiver for an Accident – Not a discount per se, but companies like State Farm and GEICO permit an accident before raising your premiums so long as you haven’t had any claims for a certain period of time.
  • Low Mileage – Driving fewer miles may enable drivers to earn discounted premium rates on garaged vehicles.
  • ABS and Traction Control Discounts – Cars, trucks, and SUVs that have steering control and anti-lock brakes are much safer to drive and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Good Student – Getting good grades may save you up to 25%. Many companies even apply the discount to college students up until you turn 25.

Don’t be shocked that many deductions do not apply to the entire cost. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like comprehensive or collision. If you do the math and it seems like adding up those discounts means a free policy, nobody gets a free ride.

Auto insurance companies that may offer policyholders these benefits include:

If you are trying to find low cost insurance quotes, ask each company which credits you are entitled to. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts may not apply to policies in your area. To choose companies that offer discounts, click here.

When do I need an agent’s advice?

  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • Does insurance cover damages from a DUI accident?
  • Am I insured when driving a different vehicle?
  • Am I getting all the discounts available?
  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?

If you can’t answer these questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, complete this form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and can provide invaluable advice.

Auto insurance coverage considerations

Learning about specific coverages of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. Auto insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Collision insurance

This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Flex from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things like backing into a parked car, crashing into a ditch, sideswiping another vehicle and colliding with a tree. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills such as ambulance fees, nursing services, surgery, dental work and X-ray expenses. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

This protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Ford Flex.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird, hitting a deer and hail damage. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Liability auto insurance

This coverage provides protection from damage or injury you incur to other people or property. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability can pay for claims like structural damage, funeral expenses and medical expenses. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy higher limits if possible.

You can do this!

Consumers switch companies for a variety of reasons including poor customer service, denial of a claim, being labeled a high risk driver or even extreme rates for teen drivers. It doesn’t matter why you want to switch switching companies can be easy and end up saving you some money.

We just presented some good ideas how you can save on 2009 Ford Flex insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more rate quotes you have, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers could even find that the lowest priced insurance coverage comes from a small local company.

When you buy insurance online, it’s a bad idea to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There have been many cases where an accident victim reduced liability limits or collision coverage and found out when filing a claim that the savings was not a smart move. Your goal is to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest cost, but do not skimp to save money.
