Searching for cheaper car insurance rates for your Chevrolet Spark? Consumers who are new to the process of comparison shopping online could find buying the lowest-priced car insurance is more work than they anticipated.
Most companies like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive provide coverage price quotes directly from their websites. Obtaining pricing is quite easy as you simply type in the coverages you want into a form. Behind the scenes, their rating system makes automated requests for information on your driving record and credit history and provides a quote based on many factors.
Quoting online helps simplify price comparisons, but the time it takes to visit several different sites and fill out multiple forms is monotonous and tiresome. But it’s very important to perform this step in order to get a lower rate.

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like fire damage, damage from getting keyed, damage from flooding, rock chips in glass and falling objects. 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 removing comprehensive coverage.
Auto liability insurance
This coverage can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover 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 50/100/50 which means $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $100,000, and $50,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability insurance covers things such as repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses, attorney fees, court costs and legal defense fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as much as you can afford.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since a lot of 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.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for immediate expenses like EMT expenses, ambulance fees, chiropractic care, funeral costs and surgery. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. They cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

When buying insurance coverage, it’s not a good idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There are too many instances where consumers will sacrifice uninsured motorist or liability limits and discovered at claim time that the savings was not a smart move. Your strategy should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
Insureds leave their current company for a number of reasons such as being labeled a high risk driver, high rates after DUI convictions, high prices or questionable increases in premium. Whatever your reason, switching companies can be less work than you think.
