Trying to find cheaper car insurance rates for your Ford E-350? Consumers not familiar with comparing insurance rates online can find buying the cheapest car insurance very challenging.
Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but discounts can save money and there are some available that you may not know about. Some trigger automatically when you quote, but less common discounts must be inquired about in order for you to get them.
Drivers should understand that most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. Some only reduce individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So despite the fact that it appears all those discounts means the company will pay you, car insurance companies aren’t that generous. But all discounts will help reduce your overall premium however.
Car insurance companies that may have some of the above discounts are:
It’s a good idea to ask each insurance company which discounts they offer. Some discounts may not apply in your area.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. Car insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Collision coverage – This covers damage to your E-350 caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims like colliding with a tree, crashing into a ditch, driving through your garage door and damaging your car on a curb. 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 to get cheaper collision coverage.
Auto liability – This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 that translate to a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers things such as loss of income, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, pain and suffering and repair costs for stationary objects. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
UM/UIM Coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your 1991 Ford E-350.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea. Usually the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like falling objects, theft, hitting a bird, hail damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Medical costs insurance – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses such as rehabilitation expenses, funeral costs, doctor visits and prosthetic devices. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers you and your occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Drivers change insurance companies for a variety of reasons including extreme rates for teen drivers, unfair underwriting practices, policy cancellation or even questionable increases in premium. Regardless of your reason for switching companies, choosing a new company can be easy and end up saving you some money.
Affordable 1991 Ford E-350 insurance is available from both online companies in addition to many insurance agents, so you should compare both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance providers do not provide the ability to get a quote online and usually these small insurance companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s a bad idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. In many cases, drivers have reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to find out they didn’t purchase enough coverage. The aim is to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price, not the least amount of coverage.
