Have you had enough of not being able to afford to insure your Maserati every month? Your situation is no different than millions of other consumers. Having so many insurance providers from which to choose, it can be impossible to find the cheapest provider.
The purpose of this article is to help you learn how car insurance quotes work and some tips to save money. If you currently have a car insurance policy, you should be able to save some money using these techniques. Consumers just need to know the tricks to compare company rates online.
Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but there are discounts available to reduce the price significantly. Some discounts apply automatically at the time of quoting, but some must be requested specifically prior to getting the savings. If you aren’t receiving every discount you deserve, you’re paying more than you need to.
Drivers should understand that many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. So even though they make it sound like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, you’re out of luck. But all discounts will reduce the cost of coverage.

Learning about specific coverages of insurance can be of help when determining the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Below you’ll find the usual coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like fire damage, rock chips in glass, hail damage and damage from getting keyed. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
UM/UIM Coverage – This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2014 Maserati GranTurismo.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Normally these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses such as prosthetic devices, dental work, chiropractic care and ambulance fees. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from 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 will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision – This pays for damage to your GranTurismo from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things like backing into a parked car, hitting a mailbox and driving through your garage door. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to increase the deductible to save money on collision insurance.
Liability insurance – Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Another option is one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.
Liability can pay for claims like bail bonds, legal defense fees, structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and loss of income. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but you should buy higher limits if possible.
We’ve covered some good ideas how to get a better price on 2014 Maserati GranTurismo insurance. The key thing to remember is the more quotes you get, the higher the chance of saving money. You may even discover the biggest savings come from a small local company. These companies can often provide lower rates in certain areas as compared to the big name companies such as State Farm and Allstate.
When buying insurance coverage, it’s not a good idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In many cases, drivers have reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to discover later that the savings was not a smart move. Your focus should be to purchase plenty of coverage at a price you can afford while not skimping on critical coverages.
Budget-conscious insurance can be bought from both online companies as well as from independent agents, so you should compare both so you have a total pricing picture. There are still a few companies who don’t offer you the ability to get quotes online and these small insurance companies work with independent agents.
