2013 Ford E-Series Van Insurance Rates – 6 Tips for Cheaper Quotes

Vehicle owners who are new to comparing insurance prices on the web will discover locating cheaper insurance coverage is nearly impossible.

If you have car insurance now, you will be able to cut costs considerably using these tips. Pricing more affordable protection is quite easy. But vehicle owners benefit from understanding how companies price online insurance and apply this information to your search.

The best way to compare rate quotes is to know the fact most insurance companies participate in a system to give free rates quotes. The only thing you need to do is give the companies some data like how old drivers are, your education level, deductibles desired, and whether you are single or married. Your insurance information is sent automatically to many of the top insurers and they respond with quotes within a short period of time.

Six discounts for affordable car insurance rates

Car insurance can cost a lot, but you may qualify for discounts to help bring down the price. Many of these discounts will be applied automatically when you complete an application, but less common discounts must be manually applied in order for you to get them.

  • Homeowners Pay Less – Owning your own home or condo can save you money because of the fact that having a home is proof that your finances are in order.
  • Discounts for Good Drivers – Drivers who avoid accidents can pay as much as 50% less on E-Series van coverage than drivers with accidents.
  • Multi-policy Discount – If you insure your home and vehicles with the same company you could get a discount of at least 10% off all policies.
  • Discount for Low Mileage – Keeping the miles down on your Ford could earn substantially lower rates.
  • Discount for New Cars – Putting car insurance coverage on a new car can cost up to 25% less because new model year vehicles keep occupants safer.
  • Pay Upfront and Save – By making one initial payment instead of monthly or quarterly installments you may reduce your total bill.

As is typical with insurance, most credits do not apply to your bottom line cost. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as liability and collision coverage. Even though the math looks like all those discounts means the company will pay you, it’s just not the way it works. Any qualifying discounts should definitely cut the amount you pay for coverage.

Tailor your car insurance coverage to you

When choosing the right insurance coverage, there really is no cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s situation is unique.

Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine if your insurance needs may require specific advice.

  • Do I need motorclub coverage?
  • Is a fancy paint job covered?
  • Can I still get insurance after a DUI?
  • How much liability insurance is required?
  • Should I buy more coverage than the required minimum liability coverage?
  • Will my insurance pay for OEM parts?

If you’re not sure about those questions, then you may want to think about talking to a licensed insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form.

Specific coverages for a 2013 Ford E-Series Van

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance 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.

Collision coverage protection

Collision insurance covers damage to your E-Series Van from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers things such as colliding with a tree, crashing into a building, sustaining damage from a pot hole and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from getting keyed, falling objects, theft and hitting a bird. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

UM/UIM Coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.

Medical costs insurance

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses such as surgery, pain medications, nursing services, X-ray expenses and funeral costs. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability auto insurance

This provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people that is your fault. Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability coverage protects against claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, bail bonds, emergency aid, loss of income and pain and suffering. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as much as you can afford.

Be a money saver!

People who switch companies do it for any number of reasons including denial of a claim, poor customer service, high rates after DUI convictions and even delays in paying claims. It doesn’t matter what your reason, switching companies is not as difficult as it may seem.

As you shop your coverage around, do not buy poor coverage just to save money. In too many instances, consumers will sacrifice full coverage and discovered at claim time that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. Your objective should be to buy the best coverage you can find at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.

Cost effective 2013 Ford E-Series Van insurance is possible on the web and from local agencies, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best chance of lowering rates. Some insurance companies may not provide the ability to get quotes online and many times these smaller providers sell through independent agents.
