2013 Kia Sorento Car Insurance Quotes

Searching for cheaper insurance coverage rates for your Kia Sorento? I can’t think of anyone who looks forward to paying for insurance coverage, especially when they are paying too much.

You have so many insurers to buy insurance from, and though it is a good thing to have a choice, it can be more difficult to find the lowest rates.

It’s smart to do rate comparisons once or twice a year since rates are adjusted regularly by insurance companies. Even if you think you had the lowest price on Sorento coverage on your last policy you can probably find a lower rate today. So just forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance coverage because you’re about to learn the right way to lower your annual insurance bill.

Automobile Insurance Quotes

There are several ways to compare quotes and find the best price. The easiest way by far to find the cheapest 2013 Kia Sorento insurance rates is to get quotes online. This can be done using a couple different methods.

  • The single most time-saving way to get quotes for comparison would be an industry-wide quote request form (click to open form in new window). This method saves time by eliminating boring form submissions for each company. A single form compares rates from several companies.
  • A less efficient way to get quotes online requires a trip to each company’s website and request a quote. For sake of this example, let’s assume you want rates from Allstate, Farmers and Progressive. You would have to go to every website to enter your coverage information, and that’s why the first method is more popular. For a handy list of car insurance company links in your area, click here.

It’s up to you which method you use, but ensure you are comparing the exact same quote information for each price quote. If each company quotes different liability limits it’s not possible to determine which rate is truly the best. Quoting even small variations in limits may result in large price differences. It’s important to know that comparing a large number of companies helps locate better pricing.

Is there deception in advertising?

GEICO, State Farm and Progressive regularly use ads in print and on television. All the companies say the same thing about savings if you move to their company. How do they all claim to save you money? This is how they do it.

All the different companies have a certain “appetite” for the right customer that makes them money. An example of a profitable customer might be profiled as between the ages of 40 and 55, insures multiple vehicles, and has great credit. Any new insured who fits that profile is entitled to the best price and as a result will probably save a lot of money.

Consumers who don’t qualify for these standards must pay a higher premium which usually ends up with the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ads say “drivers who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save that kind of money. That is how insurance companies can confidently advertise the savings.

This illustrates why drivers must get a wide range of price quotes. It is impossible to predict the company that will provide you with the cheapest Kia Sorento insurance rates.

Companies offer discounts so take them!

Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but there are discounts available to help offset the cost. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied when you get a quote, but lesser-known reductions have to be specially asked for before they will apply.

  • Homeowners Savings – Owning a house can save you money because owning a home requires personal responsibility.
  • Multiple Cars – Buying coverage for all your vehicles with the same company qualifies for this discount.
  • Lower Rates for Military – Being on active duty in the military could mean lower rates.
  • Discount for Life Insurance – Companies who offer life insurance give better rates if you take out a life insurance policy as well.
  • One Accident Forgiven – A few companies permit an accident before your rates go up as long as you don’t have any claims prior to the accident.
  • Seat Belts Save – Requiring all passengers to use their safety belts can save up to 15% off your PIP or medical payments premium.

Consumers should know that most discounts do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. A few only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates you could get a free insurance policy, it doesn’t quite work that way. But all discounts will help reduce your premiums.

Do I just need basic coverages?

When choosing proper insurance coverage, there isn’t really a one size fits all plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different and your policy should reflect that. Here are some questions about coverages that can aid in determining if your insurance needs could use an agent’s help.

  • When should I remove comp and collision on my 2013 Kia Sorento?
  • Do I get a pro-rated refund if I cancel my policy early?
  • How much liability do I need to cover my assets?
  • What is PIP insurance?
  • Is my vehicle covered by my employer’s policy when using it for work?
  • Do I have coverage for damage caused while driving under the influence?
  • Why am I be forced to buy a membership to get insurance from some companies?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you may need to chat with a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier

Educate yourself about auto insurance coverages

Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you’ll find the usual coverages available from auto insurance companies.

Comprehensive auto coverage

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as hitting a deer, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout your auto insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Collision coverage protection

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Sorento resulting from a collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, scraping a guard rail, colliding with a tree and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

This coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Kia Sorento.

Due to the fact that many drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Normally the UM/UIM limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for bills such as rehabilitation expenses, surgery, X-ray expenses, hospital visits and nursing services. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and may carry a deductible

Liability coverage

This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see values of 25/50/25 which stand for a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Alternatively, you may have a combined single limit or CSL which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against things such as attorney fees, loss of income, emergency aid, funeral expenses and legal defense fees. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible.

What is YOUR best insurance company?

The cheapest 2013 Kia Sorento insurance is possible on the web in addition to many insurance agents, and you should be comparing both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some companies do not provide the ability to get a quote online and these smaller companies work with independent agents.

We just covered a lot of techniques to reduce insurance prices online. The key thing to remember is the more rate quotes you have, the better chance you’ll have of finding lower rates. Consumers could even find that the lowest priced car insurance comes from a small mutual company. They may only write in your state and offer lower rates as compared to the big name companies such as Allstate or State Farm.
