Finding lower rates for car insurance is always nearly impossible for people who are new to shopping for insurance online. You have so many choices that it can turn into a real challenge to find lower rates.
Most companies allow you to get pricing on their websites. Getting online rates doesn’t take a lot of time as you simply enter your personal and coverage information into the quote form. When complete, the company’s rating system will order reports for credit and driving violations and generates pricing information based on many factors.
Online quotes helps simplify price comparisons, but the time it takes to visit many different websites and fill out multiple forms can be a bit repetitive. Unfortunately, it is important to do this in order to find the lowest possible prices on car insurance.

Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy can help you determine the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Coverage for liability – Liability coverage protects you from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 50/100/50 that means you have a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, $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 combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability can pay for claims such as legal defense fees, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, pain and suffering and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
Collision coverages – This coverage covers damage to your B-Series Truck resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage pays for things like hitting a parking meter, backing into a parked car and sideswiping another vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible to bring the cost down.
UM/UIM Coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your Mazda B-Series Truck.
Since many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Usually the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This coverage covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims like theft, rock chips in glass, damage from a tornado or hurricane and damage from getting keyed. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP provide coverage for short-term medical expenses like surgery, funeral costs and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
