Are you a victim of an underperforming, overpriced auto insurance policy? Trust us when we tell you many consumers are feeling buyer’s remorse and feel like there’s no way out.
Big companies like State Farm, GEICO and Farmers Insurance promote their brand names with TV and radio ads and consumers find it hard to see through the cute green geckos and mayhem and find the best price available.
It’s a good habit to take a look at other company’s rates periodically since insurance rates change regularly. If you had the best deal for V8 coverage a year ago the chances are good that you can find a lower rate today. There is a lot of wrong information about auto insurance on the web, but I’m going to show you some good information on how to buy auto insurance cheaper.
If you have car insurance now, you will most likely be able to lower your premiums substantially using these techniques. Choosing the best insurance company for you is not rocket science. But consumers need to have an understanding of how the larger insurance companies sell insurance online and apply this information to your search.
Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but you may find discounts to cut the cost considerably. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied at the time of purchase, but lesser-known reductions have to be specially asked for before being credited.
A little note about advertised discounts, most discount credits are not given to the entire cost. Most only reduce specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. So even though it sounds like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it doesn’t quite work that way. But all discounts will bring down the amount you have to pay.

Learning about specific coverages of insurance can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find the usual coverages offered by insurance companies.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Audi V8.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Medical expense coverage
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses like chiropractic care, prosthetic devices and dental work. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible
This will pay to fix damage to your V8 resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for claims like hitting a mailbox, backing into a parked car, rolling your car, sideswiping another vehicle and colliding with a tree. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.
Liability coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 50/100/50 that translate to $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical expenses, repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses and structural damage. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but you should buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance 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 claims such as fire damage, damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and damage from getting keyed. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
We just presented many ways to save on 1991 Audi V8 insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more providers you compare, the better chance you’ll have of finding lower rates. You may even find the most savings is with the least-expected company. Some small companies may often insure only within specific states and give getter rates as compared to the big name companies such as Progressive and GEICO.
The cheapest insurance can be bought both online and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best chance of lowering rates. A few companies may not provide you the ability to get quotes online and most of the time these smaller companies sell through independent agents.
