Compare 2009 Toyota Corolla Car Insurance Quotes

Online insurance companies like Progressive, GEICO and Farmers Insurance all claim big savings with TV and radio ads and it is challenging if not impossible to not get sucked in by the cute commercials and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.

It’s a great practice to do price comparisons before your policy renews since prices go up and down regularly. Just because you found the best deal on Corolla insurance at your last renewal the chances are good that you can find a lower rate quote today. Ignore everything you know about insurance because it’s time to teach you the fastest way to lower your annual insurance bill.

Quote insurance online

There are a lot of ways to compare insurance quotes, but there is one way that is less time-consuming than others. You can spend countless hours talking to agents in your area, or you can stay home and use online quotes to accomplish the same thing much quicker.

Many insurance companies take part in a program that enables customers to submit one quote, and at least one company can give them a price based on that data. This saves time by eliminating quote forms for each company.

One minor caviat to comparing rates this way is that you can’t choose which carriers you want pricing from. So if you want to choose specific providers to receive pricing from, we put together a list of low cost insurance companies in your area. Click here for list of insurance companies.

How you compare quotes is your choice, just try to use nearly identical coverages with each company. If each company quotes differing limits you will not be able to make an equal comparison. Quoting even small variations in limits may result in a large different in cost. Keep in mind that getting more free quotes increases your odds of finding the best price.

Cheap insurance rates with discounts

Car insurance companies don’t necessarily list every discount in a way that’s easy to find, so below is a list a few of the more common and also the lesser-known discounts that you may qualify for.

  • Claim Free – Claim-free drivers get the best insurance rates as opposed to drivers who are more careless.
  • Good Student – Excelling in school may save you up to 25%. The discount lasts until age 25.
  • Savings for New Vehicles – Adding a new car to your policy may earn a small discount because new vehicles are generally safer.
  • 55 and Retired – Drivers over the age of 55 are able to get a discount up to 10% on Corolla insurance.
  • Discount for Passive Restraints – Factory options such as air bags may get savings of 20 to 30 percent.
  • Homeowners Savings – Owning a home can get you a discount because owning a home is proof that your finances are in order.
  • Paperwork-free – A handful of insurance companies give back up to $50 just for signing your application on the internet.
  • Theft Prevention System – Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices are stolen less frequently and earn discounts up to 10% off your car insurance quote.

Don’t be shocked that many deductions do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. Even though it may seem like you could get a free insurance policy, you aren’t that lucky.

Popular insurance companies and some of the discounts are included below.

  • The Hartford policyholders can earn discounts including bundle, defensive driver, vehicle fuel type, air bag, good student, driver training, and anti-theft.
  • American Family includes discounts for mySafetyValet, defensive driver, bundled insurance, early bird, accident-free, and good driver.
  • Progressive offers premium reductions for homeowner, continuous coverage, good student, multi-vehicle, and online quote discount.
  • Travelers may include discounts for multi-policy, good student, early quote, payment discounts, and IntelliDrive.
  • Farmers Insurance discounts include pay in full, electronic funds transfer, homeowner, multi-car, business and professional, good student, and distant student.
  • USAA may have discounts that include new vehicle, multi-policy, safe driver, vehicle storage, good student, and family discount.
  • Liberty Mutual has discounts for preferred payment discount, safety features, hybrid vehicle, newly retired, exclusive group savings, multi-policy, and new vehicle discount.

Before you buy a policy, ask each company how you can save money. Some of the earlier mentioned discounts may not apply in your area.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage, there really is not a best way to insure your cars. Everyone’s needs are different and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions can aid in determining if your insurance needs could use an agent’s help.

  • Am I covered if I wreck a rental car?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • Am I covered when driving a rental car?
  • Is my cargo covered for damage or theft?
  • How high should my medical payments coverage be?
  • Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?
  • Should I buy only the required minimum liability coverage?

If you’re not sure about those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Learn about auto insurance coverages for a 2009 Toyota Corolla

Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages for your vehicles. Auto insurance terms can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. These are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.

Collision protection

This covers damage to your Corolla caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox, damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Coverage for medical expenses

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for nursing services, EMT expenses, pain medications and X-ray expenses. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Comprehensive auto insurance

Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like damage from getting keyed, rock chips in glass and theft. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Toyota Corolla.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Normally these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Liability coverages

Liability insurance can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property. It protects you against other people’s claims, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show values of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have a combined 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 repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses, bail bonds, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and medical services. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
