Perplexed by the crazy number of insurance coverage companies? You’re not alone. You have so many options that it can be a big hassle to find the lowest price.
Smart consumers take time to compare prices yearly because prices change frequently. Even if you think you had the lowest rates on Truck insurance two years ago you can probably find a lower rate today. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance coverage because you’re about to find out the best methods to lower your rates without sacrificing coverage.

Whichever method you choose, ensure you are comparing exactly the same information for every quote you compare. If you compare mixed coverages then you won’t be able to find the best deal for your Nissan Truck. Slightly different coverages may result in large price differences. And when comparison shopping, quoting more gives you a better chance of getting the best rates.
Car insurance companies don’t list all their discounts in a way that’s easy to find, so the following is a list of some of the more common and the harder-to-find ways to save on insurance coverage.
A little note about advertised discounts, some credits don’t apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the cost of specific coverages such as medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates all those discounts means the company will pay you, you won’t be that lucky.
Car insurance companies that possibly offer some of the above discounts include:
Check with each company how you can save money. Some discounts might not apply in your area.

Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers – This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Nissan Truck.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
Medical expense insurance – Med pay and PIP coverage pay for immediate expenses for things like prosthetic devices, ambulance fees, chiropractic care and surgery. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and also covers if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Comprehensive (Other than Collision) – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as theft, fire damage and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverage – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Truck caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage pays for claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a mailbox and damaging your car on a curb. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Liability coverage – Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other people or property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 100/300/100 which stand for $100,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers claims like medical services, emergency aid, structural damage, bail bonds and repair costs for stationary objects. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
