Searching for lower car insurance rates for your Chrysler Imperial? Are you a victim of overpriced car insurance? Trust us when we tell you many consumers feel financially strained by their car insurance policy. Big-name insurance companies like GEICO, Farmers Insurance and State Farm promote their brand names with ads and it is difficult to see past the geckos and flying pigs and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.
Car insurance is not cheap, but you may find discounts that you may not know about. Most are applied when you quote, but some may not be applied and must be manually applied before you will receive the discount. If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you’re just leaving money on the table.
Keep in mind that most of the big mark downs will not be given to all coverage premiums. Most cut individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. So even though it sounds like you can get free auto insurance, companies don’t profit that way. Any amount of discount will reduce your premiums.

Cutting your insurance rates is not rocket science. Just take a couple of minutes comparing price quotes from different insurance companies. This is very easy and can be done using a couple different methods.
The best way to get quotes would be an industry-wide quote request form (click to open form in new window). This type of form eliminates the need for repetitive form submissions for each company you want a rate for. One form submission gets rate comparisons from many national carriers.
A more difficult way to compare prices is to take the time to go to each individual company website and request a quote. For sake of this example, let’s say you want rates from GEICO, 21st Century and Progressive. To get each rate you have to spend time on each company’s site and enter your policy data, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

It’s up to you which method you use, but make sure you use identical information with each company. If you compare different liability limits it will be impossible to decipher which rate is best.
When it comes to buying the best insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there is no “perfect” insurance plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different and a cookie cutter policy won’t apply. For example, these questions may help you determine if your insurance needs would benefit from professional advice.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with a licensed insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.
Learning about specific coverages of your insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.
Collision – Collision insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against things such as backing into a parked car, rolling your car, colliding with another moving vehicle and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical expense coverage – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for bills such as surgery, dental work, EMT expenses and rehabilitation expenses. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – This provides protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 1993 Chrysler Imperial.
Because many people carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Frequently these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Comprehensive protection – This coverage pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, a broken windshield and rock chips in glass. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Liability – Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see limits of 100/300/100 which stand for a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $100,000. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against things like attorney fees, loss of income and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Cost effective 1993 Chrysler Imperial insurance is available from both online companies and also from your neighborhood agents, so you should compare both so you have a total pricing picture. Some companies may not provide you the ability to get quotes online and most of the time these small insurance companies sell through independent agents.
We just covered quite a bit of information on how to get a better price on insurance. The key thing to remember is the more companies you get rates for, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. Drivers may discover the best prices are with a company that doesn’t do a lot of advertising. Some small companies can often insure niche markets at a lower cost compared to the large companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive.
When you buy insurance online, don’t be tempted to buy less coverage just to save a little money. There have been many cases where consumers will sacrifice physical damage coverage only to find out they didn’t have enough coverage. Your focus should be to buy the best coverage you can find at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
