Quick Insurance Coverage Quotes

Getting a lower price on 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty insurance can be surprisingly simple. You just need to spend a few minutes comparing rates online from several insurance companies. It is quite easy and can be accomplished in several different ways.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to compare a lot of rates at once is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This easy form keeps you from doing separate quotes for each company. Taking the time to complete one form gets you price quotes from insurance coverage companies with the best prices. This is by far the quickest method.
  2. A different way to obtain and compare quotes online requires a visit to each company website to complete a price quote. For example, we’ll assume you want to compare Progressive, 21st Century and American Family. To find out each rate you need to visit each site and enter your information, which is why the first method is quicker. For a list of links to companies insuring cars in your area, click here.
  3. The most time-consuming way to compare rates is to spend time driving to and from local insurance agencies. The ability to buy insurance online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you require the trained guidance of a local agent. Drivers can find lower rates online and still use a local agent and you’ll learn how to do that later.

Which method you use is up to you, but double check that you are using apples-to-apples coverage limits and deductibles for each price quote. If the quotes have different deductibles it’s impossible to make an equal comparison.

What car insurance coverages do you need?

Learning about specific coverages of a car insurance policy can help you determine which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims such as vandalism, damage from getting keyed and damage from flooding. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Liability insurance

This coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property in an accident. It protects YOU against claims from other people. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 that means you have a limit of $25,000 per injured person, $50,000 for the entire accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Some companies may use one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage pays for things such as attorney fees, court costs, emergency aid, legal defense fees and loss of income. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage covers damage to your F-350 Super Duty from colliding with an object or car. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things such as hitting a parking meter, scraping a guard rail, backing into a parked car and colliding with a tree. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and also any damage incurred to your 2002 Ford F-350 Super Duty.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Normally these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Insurance for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for immediate expenses for surgery, funeral costs, X-ray expenses and nursing services. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available and may carry a deductible
