You should take the time to get comparison quotes at least once a year because rates trend upward over time. Even if you got the best rates for Swift coverage two years ago you can probably find a better price now. Block out anything you think you know about car insurance because you’re about to learn one of the quickest ways to properly buy coverages while reducing your premium.

Are you getting all your discounts?

Car insurance can cost a lot, but you can get discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Some discounts apply automatically at quote time, but some may not be applied and must be inquired about before they will apply.

  • Passive Restraint Discount – Cars that have air bags or automatic seat belts can qualify for discounts of up to 25% or more.
  • Claim Free – Drivers who don’t have accidents pay much less when compared to accident-prone drivers.
  • Theft Prevention System – Anti-theft and alarm systems prevent vehicle theft and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Drivers Education – Cut your cost by having your teen driver successfully complete driver’s ed class in school.
  • Discount for Swiching Early – Select companies give a discount for signing up before your current expiration date. The savings is around 10%.

Consumers should know that most discounts do not apply the the whole policy. Most only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability, collision or medical payments. So when the math indicates adding up those discounts means a free policy, companies don’t profit that way. Any qualifying discounts will reduce your overall premium however.

Compare Car Insurance Costs

To find the best car insurance prices, there are several ways to compare quotes from car insurance companies in your area. The easiest way by far to find the lowest 1990 Suzuki Swift rates is simply to get online rate quotes. This is very easy and can be done using a couple different methods.

  1. The single most time-saving way to compare a lot of rates at once is a comparison rater form like this one (opens in new window). This form eliminates the need for multiple quote forms to each individual car insurance company. In just a few minutes this one form will get you rate comparisons from car insurance companies with the best prices. This is by far the quickest method.
  2. A more difficult way to compare prices requires visiting the website for each individual company to request a price quote. For sake of this example, let’s assume you want rates from State Farm, 21st Century and Progressive. You would have to visit each site to input your insurance information, and that’s why the first method is more popular. For a list of links to insurance companies in your area, click here.
  3. The hardest method to compare rates is to waste gas driving to and from local insurance agencies. Shopping for car insurance online has reduced the need for local agents unless you require the trained guidance only provided by licensed agents. However, consumers can price shop your coverage online and get advice from an agent in your area.

It’s up to you how you get prices quotes, just double check that you are using exactly the same coverage limits for every company. If the quotes have different deductibles it will be next to impossible to make a fair comparison for your Suzuki Swift. Having just a slight variation in coverage limits may result in large price differences. Just keep in mind that having more price comparisons gives you a better chance of getting the best price.

These factors can influence Suzuki Swift insurance rates

An important part of buying insurance is that you know the factors that help determine car insurance rates. Understanding what determines base rates enables informed choices that can help you get lower car insurance prices.

  • Adjust deductibles and save – Physical damage coverage, also known as collision and other-than-collision, is used to repair damage to your Suzuki. Some instances where coverage would apply are a windshield shattered by a rock, collision with an animal, and burglary. Deductibles for physical damage are how much you are required to spend in the event of a claim. The more money you are required to pay out-of-pocket, the lower your rates will be for Swift coverage.
  • Extra add-on coverages are wasting money – There are quite a few extra coverages you can purchase on your Swift policy. Insurance for rental car reimbursement, better glass coverage and term life insurance are some examples. They may seem like a good idea when talking to your agent, but if they’re wasting money eliminate the coverages to reduce your premium.
  • Older drivers pay less – Youthful drivers are known to get distracted easily in a vehicle so they pay higher car insurance rates. Mature drivers are more responsible, tend to file fewer claims and tend to be better behind the wheel.
  • Discounts for married couples – Having a wife or husband helps lower the price on your policy. Having a significant other usually means you are more mature than a single person and it’s proven that married drivers get in fewer accidents.
  • Discounts for multiple policies – Many insurers will award you with lower prices to policyholders who have multiple policies with them. It’s known as a multi-policy discount. Discounts can add up to five, ten or even twenty percent. Even though this discount sounds good, you may still want to comparison shop to verify if the discount is saving money.
  • Big city or small town – Choosing to live in small towns and rural areas is a positive aspect when insuring your vehicles. Fewer people translates into fewer accidents. Drivers in populated areas regularly have more traffic problems and longer commute times. Higher commute times can result in more accidents.

When might I need an agent?

When it comes to choosing the right insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs.

For example, these questions might help in determining if your situation could use an agent’s help.

  • What is the rate difference between pleasure use and commuting?
  • What is the ISO rating for a 1990 Suzuki Swift?
  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?
  • Is motorclub coverage worth it?
  • How many claims can I have before being cancelled?
  • What can I do if my company won’t pay a claim?
  • How do I file an SR-22 for a DUI in my state?

If you’re not sure about those questions, you may need to chat with an agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form.

Insurance coverage myths debunked

Companies like Allstate and Progressive constantly bombard you with ads on television and other media. All the ads make the same claim about savings if you switch your policy. How can each company claim to save you money?

All the different companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that makes them money. A good example of a desirable insured could possibly be over the age of 40, has no driving citations, and has a high credit rating. A propective insured who meets those qualifications gets the lowest rates and therefore will save when they switch companies.

Potential insureds who do not match the “perfect” profile will be charged a higher premium and this can result in business not being written. Company advertisements say “drivers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that much. That’s why insurance companies can confidently advertise the way they do.

That is why it is so important to quote coverage with many companies. It’s not possible to predict which insurance companies will provide you with the cheapest Suzuki Swift insurance rates.

Learn about car insurance coverages for a Suzuki Swift

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Medical payments and PIP coverage – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses for hospital visits, nursing services and doctor visits. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Collision coverages – This will pay to fix damage to your Swift resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for claims like driving through your garage door, backing into a parked car and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability – Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against claims like attorney fees, funeral expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, bail bonds and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but you should buy as much as you can afford.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Suzuki Swift.

Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time these coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Comprehensive auto coverage – This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as hail damage, a broken windshield and damage from flooding. The maximum amount your car insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Keep this in mind

Insureds who switch companies do it for any number of reasons including denial of a claim, an unsatisfactory settlement offer, lack of trust in their agent or even delays in paying claims. Whatever your reason, switching companies is pretty easy and you might even save some money in the process.

Lower-priced 1990 Suzuki Swift insurance can be bought on the web as well as from independent agents, and you need to comparison shop both to have the best chance of lowering rates. There are still a few companies who don’t offer online price quotes and these smaller companies work with independent agents.

As you shop your coverage around, it’s not a good idea to buy less coverage just to save a little money. There are many occasions where consumers will sacrifice full coverage only to find out they didn’t purchase enough coverage. Your focus should be to buy the best coverage you can find for the lowest price.
