However you get your quotes, make darn sure you compare identical deductibles and coverage limits for every quote you compare. If each company quotes different values for each quote it will be impossible to find the best deal for your Lexus SC 400. Having just a slight variation in insurance coverages could mean much higher rates. Just remember that getting more free quotes helps you find a lower rate.
Companies that sell car insurance don’t always list every available discount very well, so here is a list both the well known and also the lesser-known ways to save on auto insurance.
Drivers should understand that most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Most only apply to individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. Just because it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, companies don’t profit that way.

When it comes to choosing coverage for your personal vehicles, there really is not a “perfect” insurance plan. Each situation is unique so your insurance needs to address that. For example, these questions may help you determine whether or not you would benefit from professional advice.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions, you might consider talking to an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.
Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. Insurance terms can be impossible to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverages offered by insurance companies.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hail damage and fire damage. The most your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Coverage for medical expenses – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for bills like dental work, doctor visits, nursing services, ambulance fees and surgery. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Liability coverage – This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other people or property. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see values of 100/300/100 which stand for a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers claims such as funeral expenses, emergency aid, bail bonds and legal defense fees. How much coverage you buy is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
Collision – Collision insurance will pay to fix damage to your SC 400 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things such as scraping a guard rail, crashing into a ditch and sustaining damage from a pot hole. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Lexus SC 400.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
