Auto insurance companies don’t always list all their discounts in a way that’s easy to find, so the following is a list of both well-publicized and also the lesser-known discounts you could be receiving.

Even though it may seem like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you won’t be that lucky.

Having a good grasp of your car insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and coverage can change by endorsement.
Coverage for liability – This can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability coverage protects against claims like funeral expenses, loss of income and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
Collision coverage – This coverage pays for damage to your Sequoia from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision insurance covers things such as colliding with a tree, hitting a mailbox, hitting a parking meter and damaging your car on a curb. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Insurance for medical payments – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for immediate expenses for ambulance fees, hospital visits, doctor visits and rehabilitation expenses. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) – Comprehensive insurance pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for things such as rock chips in glass, falling objects, vandalism and hitting a bird. The most a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance – This coverage gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2005 Toyota Sequoia.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
Insureds leave their current company for many reasons like extreme rates for teen drivers, policy cancellation, high prices and even delays in paying claims. It doesn’t matter what your reason, finding a new auto insurance company can be pretty painless.
Discount 2005 Toyota Sequoia insurance is possible on the web in addition to many insurance agents, so compare prices from both to have the best rate selection. There are still a few companies who do not provide online quoting and usually these smaller companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
While you’re price shopping online, don’t be tempted to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are too many instances where someone sacrificed physical damage coverage only to find out that it was a big mistake. The proper strategy is to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate.
