Want lower insurance coverage rates for your Honda CR-V? Are you overwhelmed by the sheer number of insurance coverage choices? You have a lot of company. You have so many options that it can turn into a ton of work to find lower rates.
It’s smart to get comparison quotes yearly since rates change regularly. Despite the fact that you may have had the best price on CR-V insurance a few years ago a different company probably has better rates today. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance coverage because you’re about to find out the quickest way to lower your rates without sacrificing coverage.
Most companies give coverage price quotes on the web. Getting quotes is pretty painless as you simply enter your personal and coverage information into a form. After the form is submitted, the company’s rating system collects reports for credit and driving violations and quotes a price based on many factors.
Online quotes makes it a lot easier to compare rates but the time it takes to visit different websites and type in the same information is not the best way to spend an afternoon. Unfortunately, it is important to do this in order to get a lower rate.
The smarter way to compare rates requires only one form to return rates from more than one company. The form is fast, eliminates repetitive work, and makes online shopping much simpler. After sending the form, your coverage is rated with multiple companies and you can pick any of the quotes returned. If you find a better price you can click and sign and buy the policy. The whole process just takes a couple of minutes and may result in a nice savings.

Knowing the specifics of your policy helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability car insurance – Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to a person or their property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 100/300/100 that means you have $100,000 bodily injury coverage, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability can pay for things like funeral expenses, loss of income, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying as much as you can afford.
Uninsured or underinsured coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Honda CR-V.
Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important.
Medical expense coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for expenses such as prosthetic devices, EMT expenses, pain medications and chiropractic care. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers you and your occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Collision coverage – This pays for damage to your CR-V resulting from a collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for claims like damaging your car on a curb, hitting a parking meter, scraping a guard rail, crashing into a ditch and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive protection – This covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as hitting a deer, damage from flooding, damage from a tornado or hurricane, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and vandalism. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
