View 2006 Ford Explorer Insurance Rates

Trying to find better auto insurance rates for your Ford Explorer? Shopping for affordable auto insurance over the internet is difficult for beginners to online price comaprisons. When there are so many online companies, how can anyone have a chance to compare the different rates to find the best available price?

How to Get Insurance Coverage

All major insurance coverage companies quote prices on their websites. Getting quotes doesn’t take a lot of time as you simply enter your coverage information into the quote form. Once you submit the form, their rating system gets your driving record and credit report and quotes a price determined by many factors.

Online price quotes simplifies rate comparisons, but having to visit each company’s website and repetitively complete many quote forms can get tiresome after awhile. But it’s very important to get many rate quotes in order to find the lowest possible prices on insurance coverage.

There is an easier way!

A more efficient way to compare insurance coverage pricing uses one form to get prices from several companies at one time. It’s a real time-saver, requires less work, and makes online quotes much simpler. Once the form is submitted, it is quoted and you can select any of the resulting price quotes. If the quotes result in lower rates, you simply finish the application and buy the policy. This process takes 15 minutes at the most and could lower your rates considerably.

In order to find out if lower rates are available, click here and enter your vehicle and coverage information. If you have your current policy handy, we recommend that you enter the insurance coverages as shown on your current policy. Doing this guarantees you will have a fair comparison using the exact same coverages.

Tailor your coverage to you

When it comes to buying adequate coverage, there is no one size fits all plan. Every situation is different.

For instance, these questions may help highlight whether or not you might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Can I get a multi-policy discount for packaging my home and auto coverage?
  • Do I need medical payments coverage since I have good health insurance?
  • Should I bundle my homeowners policy with my auto?
  • How can I get my company to pay me more for my totalled car?
  • Do I pay less if my vehicle is kept in my garage?
  • If my pet gets injured in an accident are they covered?
  • How do I buy GAP insurance?
  • If my 2006 Ford Explorer is totaled, can I afford another vehicle?
  • What is the minimum liability in my state?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, fill out this quick form.

Car insurance 101

Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Comprehensive coverages

This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like hail damage, hitting a bird, damage from a tornado or hurricane and theft. The highest amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage covers damage to your Explorer resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers claims like colliding with a tree, colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a ditch and rolling your car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Liability car insurance

This coverage will cover damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see values of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.

Liability coverage pays for things like attorney fees, emergency aid and bail bonds. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but buy as large an amount as possible.

Coverage for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses such as chiropractic care, prosthetic devices, dental work and funeral costs. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
