The purpose of this post is to introduce you to how to get online quotes. If you currently have a car insurance policy, you stand a good chance to be able to cut costs considerably using this strategy. Drivers just need to understand the best way to find the lowest price on the web.
Finding lower auto insurance rates is not rocket science. The only requirement is to take a couple of minutes to compare quotes from different insurance companies. It is quite easy and can be accomplished in a couple of different ways.
Which method you use is up to you, but make absolute certain that you use the exact same coverage information on every quote you get. If your comparisons have different liability limits then you won’t be able to make an equal comparison.
An important part of buying insurance is that you know the rating factors that help determine the price you pay for insurance coverage. Understanding what controls the rates you pay enables informed choices that could result in big savings.
The following are a few of the “ingredients” insurance coverage companies consider when setting premiums.
Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but discounts can save money and there are some available to help bring down the price. Most are applied when you complete an application, but a few must be requested specifically before you get the savings. If you aren’t receiving every discount you qualify for, you’re just leaving money on the table.
It’s important to note that most credits do not apply the the whole policy. Some only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So when the math indicates you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you won’t be that lucky. But all discounts will help reduce the cost of coverage.
Companies that possibly offer these money-saving discounts include:
Before buying, ask all companies you are considering which discounts you may be entitled to. All car insurance discounts might not apply in your area.

Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are the normal coverages available from insurance companies.
Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like hail damage, hitting a bird, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and falling objects. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Collision insurance pays for damage to your Ram Pickup 1500 resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things such as scraping a guard rail, colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door, rolling your car and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered claims include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your Dodge Ram Pickup 1500.
Because many people have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to people or other property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability can pay for claims such as medical expenses, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, repair costs for stationary objects and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy higher limits if possible.
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses for ambulance fees, surgery, funeral costs, EMT expenses and doctor visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
