Want lower insurance coverage rates for your Lexus LX 570? Have you fallen victim to overpriced insurance coverage? Trust us, there are lots of people in the same boat. You have multiple auto insurance companies to buy insurance from, and although it’s nice to be able to choose, lots of choices makes it harder to compare rates and cut insurance costs.
The method we recommend to compare rate quotes takes advantage of the fact all the major auto insurance companies allow for online access to provide you with a free rate quote. To get started, all you need to do is give the companies some data including your occupation, if you are currently licensed, coverage limits, and if the vehicle is leased. The data is instantly provided to insurance companies and you will receive price estimates very quickly.
Companies offering auto insurance don’t always advertise all their discounts very well, so the following is a list of some of the best known and the harder-to-find ways to save on insurance coverage. If you don’t get every credit you deserve, you are throwing money away.
It’s important to understand that most credits do not apply to your bottom line cost. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like liability and collision coverage. Even though it may seem like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, companies don’t profit that way.

Knowing the specifics of a auto insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are typical coverages available from auto insurance companies.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills like ambulance fees, prosthetic devices and X-ray expenses. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover you and your occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family.
This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird and hitting a deer. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision insurance covers damage to your LX 570 resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car, sustaining damage from a pot hole and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $300,000, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for claims like court costs, bail bonds, loss of income and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying as high a limit as you can afford.
