This eliminates the need for form submissions to each company. To fill out one form to compare multiple rates now click here to open in new window.
The only drawback to using this type of system is you are unable to specify which providers to get quotes from. So if you want to choose specific insurance companies for rate comparison, we have a page of the cheapest insurance companies in your area. Click to view list.
Which method you use is up to you, but ensure you’re using apples-to-apples coverage limits for every quote you compare. If each company quotes differing limits then you won’t be able to make an equal comparison.
Companies offering auto insurance don’t list every discount in an easy-to-find place, so we researched both the well known and also the lesser-known insurance savings. If they aren’t giving you every credit you qualify for, you are paying more than you should be.
Consumers should know that some credits don’t apply to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce the price of certain insurance coverages like liability, collision or medical payments. Even though it may seem like all the discounts add up to a free policy, companies wouldn’t make money that way.
A partial list of companies that may offer these benefits include:
It’s a good idea to ask each insurance company which discounts you may be entitled to. All car insurance discounts might not be offered in your state.
An important part of buying insurance is that you know the factors that come into play when calculating the price you pay for insurance coverage. Understanding what controls the rates you pay empowers consumers to make smart changes that can help you get much lower annual insurance costs.
The list below includes a few of the “ingredients” used by your company to calculate your rates.
When choosing adequate coverage, there really is no “best” method to buy coverage. Everyone’s situation is unique and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that could help you determine whether or not you will benefit from professional help.
If it’s difficult to answer those questions but one or more may apply to you, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies. It is quick, free and you can get the answers you need.
Consumers can’t ignore all the ads that promise big savings by companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive. All the companies make an identical promise that you’ll save big if you move to them.
How do they all make almost identical claims?
Different companies have a preferred profile for the type of driver that is profitable for them. A good example of a driver they prefer might be profiled as over the age of 50, has no driving citations, and has excellent credit. Any new insured who matches those parameters is entitled to the best price and therefore will cut their rates substantially.
Potential insureds who don’t meet the “perfect” profile will be charged higher rates and this can result in the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ad wording is “drivers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that much money. That’s why companies can state the savings. That is why drivers must compare as many rates as you can. It’s impossible to know which insurance company will provide you with the cheapest Chrysler Town and Country insurance rates.
Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Insurance terms can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.
This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property in an accident. This coverage protects you against other people’s claims, and does not provide coverage for damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 which means a $100,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability coverage protects against things such as medical expenses, legal defense fees, funeral expenses and emergency aid. How much liability should you purchase? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses for things like X-ray expenses, prosthetic devices and hospital visits. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Town and Country from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision can pay for claims like damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and crashing into a ditch. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Chrysler Town and Country.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.
This coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as hitting a deer, rock chips in glass and a tree branch falling on your vehicle. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
We’ve covered some good ideas how you can lower your 2013 Chrysler Town and Country insurance rates. It’s most important to understand that the more companies you get rates for, the higher the chance of saving money. You may be surprised to find that the lowest premiums are with the least-expected company. Smaller companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates as compared to the big name companies such as Progressive and GEICO.
Cheaper insurance can be bought on the web as well as from independent agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance providers don’t offer online quoting and many times these small insurance companies only sell through independent insurance agents.
As you restructure your insurance plan, never buy less coverage just to save a little money. There have been many cases where an insured dropped liability coverage limits and learned later that they should have had better coverage. The proper strategy is to purchase plenty of coverage at a price you can afford while still protecting your assets.
