Do you qualify for a discount?

Car insurance companies don’t always publicize all available discounts in a way that’s easy to find, so we researched some of the more common as well as the least known ways to save on insurance. If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you’re paying more than you need to.

  • Bundle and Save – When you have multiple policies with one company you may earn approximately 10% to 15%.
  • Homeowners Discount – Owning a home can save you money because of the fact that having a home is proof that your finances are in order.
  • Auto/Life Discount – Some companies give better rates if you take out auto and life insurance together.
  • Good Student – Performing well in school can save 20 to 25%. The good student discount can last up to age 25.
  • Distant Student – Youth drivers who are attending college without a vehicle on campus may be able to be covered for less.
  • Use Seat Belts – Requiring all passengers to wear their seat belts could cut 10% or more off the personal injury premium cost.

Before buying, ask every prospective company how you can save money. All car insurance discounts might not be offered in every state.

What coverages do I need?

When choosing the right insurance coverage for your personal vehicles, there is no cookie cutter policy. Your needs are not the same as everyone else’s so this has to be addressed. For example, these questions can aid in determining whether or not you could use an agent’s help.

  • Do I need PIP coverage since I have good health insurance?

  • Am I covered if I drive in a foreign country?
  • What discounts do I qualify for?
  • Do I have any recourse if my insurance company denies a claim?
  • How high should deductibles be on a 2001 Dodge Ram Cargo?
  • Is my trailer covered?
  • Does my policy cover my teen driver if they drive my company car?
  • Is other people’s property covered if stolen from my vehicle?
  • Am I covered when driving on a suspended license?

If you’re not sure about those questions, you may need to chat with a licensed insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can go here for a list of companies in your area.

Don’t listen to company ads

Consumers can’t ignore all the ads for the lowest price auto insurance by 21st Century, Allstate and State Farm. They all make an identical promise that you can save if you switch to their company.

How do they all claim to save you money? This is how they do it.

Different companies have a preferred profile for the right customer they prefer to insure. An example of a driver they prefer could be between 25 and 40, insures multiple vehicles, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. A customer getting a price quote who matches those parameters will get the preferred rates and most likely will save when they switch companies.

Consumers who fall outside the requirements must pay a more expensive rate which usually ends up with the customer not buying. The ads state “customers who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save that kind of money. That is how insurance companies can state the savings. This illustrates why it’s extremely important to compare many company’s rates. Because you never know the company that will have the lowest Dodge Ram Cargo insurance rates.

Parts of your insurance policy

Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are typical coverages found on the average insurance policy.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – This protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. It can pay for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Dodge Ram Cargo.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Liability coverages – Liability insurance can cover damage that occurs to people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability insurance covers things like bail bonds, court costs, funeral expenses, emergency aid and structural damage. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Medical payments and PIP coverage – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses for things like funeral costs, doctor visits, ambulance fees and pain medications. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive auto coverage – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, a broken windshield, falling objects and rock chips in glass. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision – This pays for damage to your Ram Cargo from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for things such as colliding with a tree, sustaining damage from a pot hole, sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a ditch and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Final considerations

Affordable 2001 Dodge Ram Cargo insurance can be bought online and also from your neighborhood agents, and you should be comparing both to have the best selection. Some insurance companies may not provide online price quotes and these small insurance companies work with independent agents.

When buying insurance coverage, it’s very important that you do not reduce needed coverages to save money. There have been many cases where consumers will sacrifice uninsured motorist or liability limits only to discover later that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. Your goal should be to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price.
