Searching for lower insurance rates for your Buick LeSabre? Perplexed by the crazy number of insurance companies? Lot’s of other consumers are too. People have so many options available that it can be a lot of work to find the lowest price.
Companies don’t always advertise all their discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we break down both the well known and also the lesser-known discounts you could be receiving.
Keep in mind that most credits do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut specific coverage prices like collision or personal injury protection. Just because you may think it’s possible to get free car insurance, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
Companies that may have these benefits include:
Before buying, ask all companies you are considering how you can save money. All car insurance discounts might not be offered in your area.
When it comes to choosing coverage for your vehicles, there is no “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s needs are different.
These are some specific questions can help discover whether you could use an agent’s help.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form.
Car insurance providers like State Farm, Allstate and GEICO continually stream television and radio advertisements. They all make an identical promise about savings after switching your policy. How can each company make almost identical claims? This is how they do it.
Insurance companies can use profiling for the right customer that makes them money. A good example of a driver they prefer might be between 25 and 40, a clean driving record, and has excellent credit. A propective insured that hits that “sweet spot” will qualify for the lowest rates and therefore will save quite a bit of money when switching.
Drivers who do not match these standards will be charged a more expensive rate which usually ends up with the customer not buying. The ads say “people who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save money. That’s the way insurance companies can confidently advertise the savings. That is why it’s extremely important to get as many comparisons as possible. It’s impossible to know which company will fit your personal profile best.
Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy aids in choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Buick LeSabre.
Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.
Collision – Collision coverage covers damage to your LeSabre resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things such as hitting a mailbox, sideswiping another vehicle, colliding with a tree and rolling your car. This coverage can be expensive, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from older vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like hail damage, rock chips in glass and hitting a bird. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Liability coverages – Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You might see policy 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 a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, emergency aid, loss of income and court costs. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Insurance for medical payments – Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses like rehabilitation expenses, doctor visits and prosthetic devices. They are used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
