Most major insurance companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive quote pricing online. Obtaining pricing doesn’t take a lot of time as you just enter your personal and coverage information as requested by the quote form. Behind the scenes, the company’s rating system collects credit information and your driving record and returns a price quote. Online quotes simplifies rate comparisons, but the time it takes to visit each company’s website and repetitively type in the same information is not the best way to spend an afternoon. But it’s absolutely necessary to compare as many rates as possible in order to get the lowest price.

Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are the usual coverages found on most insurance policies.
This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive can pay for claims such as damage from getting keyed, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass, a broken windshield and vandalism. The maximum amount your insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage protection
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your SC 430 resulting from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as damaging your car on a curb, sideswiping another vehicle, driving through your garage door and colliding with a tree. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability car insurance
Liability coverage protects you from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $50,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which limits claims to one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability coverage protects against things such as attorney fees, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid, legal defense fees and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for short-term medical expenses for things like pain medications, funeral costs and chiropractic care. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
This provides protection from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your Lexus SC 430.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is important protection for you and your family. Frequently these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
