How does every company charge you less for car insurance? You have to listen carefully.
All companies have strict underwriting profiles for a prospective insured that will not have excessive claims. For example, a desirable risk might be between the ages of 30 and 50, insures multiple vehicles, and drives a car with an anti-theft system. Any new insured who matches that profile receives the best car insurance rates and therefore will save if they switch.
Potential customers who cannot meet those criteria will be charged higher prices and this results in the driver buying from a lower-cost company. Company advertisements say “people that switch” not “everybody who quotes” will save that much if they switch. That’s why insurance companies can lure you into getting a quote.
Each company has different criteria, so you should quote coverage with many companies. Because you cannot predict with any certainty which company will be your best fit.

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are typical coverages available from insurance companies.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, falling objects and rock chips in glass. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider dropping full coverage.
Auto liability insurance – This coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. 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 values of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability can pay for claims such as funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid, pain and suffering and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but buy as much as you can afford.
Collision coverage – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your LS 460 from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision can pay for claims such as damaging your car on a curb, sustaining damage from a pot hole and hitting a parking meter. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as surgery, dental work, chiropractic care and ambulance fees. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your 2017 Lexus LS 460.
