Cheaper 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Insurance Quotes

Did you fall for a flashy sales pitch and buy an overpriced insurance policy? Believe me, many consumers feel financially strained by their insurance policy.

With consumers having so many options when it comes to insurance, it is very difficult to pick the lowest cost car insurance company.

Smart consumers take time to compare prices on a regular basis because insurance rates fluctuate regularly. Just because you found the lowest rates on CLA-Class coverage a year ago other companies may now be cheaper. You can find a lot of wrong information about insurance online but we’re going to give you some proven techniques to find affordable insurance.

Buying car insurance is not that difficult. If you currently have car insurance, you stand a good chance to be able to save some money using these tips. But drivers must learn the way insurance companies market insurance on the web and apply this information to your search.

Lots of discounts mean lots of savings

Auto insurance companies don’t always advertise every available discount in an easy-to-find place, so here is a list both the well known and the more hidden discounts you could be receiving.

  • Organization Discounts – Being a member of a civic or occupational organization is a good way to get lower rates on your policy on CLA-Class coverage.
  • More Vehicles More Savings – Buying coverage for multiple cars or trucks on the same insurance policy can get a discount on all vehicles.
  • Multiple Policy Discount – If you have multiple policies with one insurance company you may save up to 20% off your total premium.
  • One Accident Forgiven – Certain companies allow you one accident before raising your premiums so long as you haven’t had any claims for a set time period.
  • 55 and Retired – If you qualify as a senior citizen, you can possibly qualify for a small decrease in premiums on CLA-Class coverage.
  • New Car Discount – Buying coverage on a new vehicle is cheaper compared to insuring an older model.
  • Low Mileage Discounts – Driving fewer miles could qualify for discounted rates on garaged vehicles.

Drivers should understand that some of the credits will not apply to the entire policy premium. A few only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as comp or med pay. So when the math indicates it’s possible to get free car insurance, you won’t be that lucky.

Compare Insurance Coverage Costs

When shopping for insurance coverage there are multiple ways to compare quotes from insurance coverage companies in your area. By far the easiest way to find the lowest 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class rates is simply to get online rate quotes. This is very easy and can be done using a couple different methods.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to get quotes is a comparison rater form like this one (opens in new window). This type of form keeps you from doing separate forms to each individual insurance coverage company. Completing one form gets you price quotes instantly.
  2. A harder way to analyze rates is spending the time to visit the website of each company and request a quote. For examples sake, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from Auto-Owners, Progressive and State Farm. To get each rate you have to go to every website to enter your coverage information, which is why most consumers use the first method.

  3. The least efficient way to compare rates is to spend your day driving to and from local insurance agencies. The internet can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you require the trained guidance that only a license agent can provide. It is possible to comparison shop online but buy from a local insurance agent.

It’s up to you how you get prices quotes, just be sure to compare apples-to-apples coverage limits and deductibles with each company. If your comparisons have unequal deductibles or liability limits it will be next to impossible to determine the best price for your Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. Just a small difference in coverages can make a big difference in price. And when comparing insurance coverage rates, know that comparing more company’s prices will improve the odds of getting better pricing.

Situations that might require an agent

When it comes to buying adequate coverage, there really is not a cookie cutter policy. Everyone’s situation is unique so your insurance should reflect that Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining whether your personal situation might need an agent’s assistance.

  • Should I have a commercial auto policy?
  • I have a DUI can I still get coverage?
  • Can I get a multi-policy discount for packaging my home and auto coverage?
  • What is covered by UM/UIM coverage?
  • Can I pay claims out-of-pocket if I buy high deductibles?
  • Do I have newly-aquired coverage?
  • How do I insure my teen driver?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • What if I total my 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and owe more than it’s worth?
  • Should I carry comprehensive and collision coverage?

If you can’t answer these questions but a few of them apply, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Insurance coverages and their meanings

Understanding the coverages of your policy aids in choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. Insurance terms can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are the normal coverages available from insurance companies.

Collision coverage protection

Collision insurance pays for damage to your CLA-Class from colliding with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with a tree, driving through your garage door and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Comprehensive insurance

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like hitting a deer, damage from a tornado or hurricane, rock chips in glass, a broken windshield and theft. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers

This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Because many people 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.

Auto liability insurance

This protects you from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and doesn’t cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 50/100/50 which stand for $50,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $100,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability insurance covers claims such as medical expenses, pain and suffering and loss of income. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.

Coverage for medical expenses

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses like hospital visits, dental work, pain medications, EMT expenses and ambulance fees. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

More comparisons equals lower rates

Discount 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class insurance can be sourced both online as well as from independent agents, and you should compare price quotes from both to get a complete price analysis. Some companies don’t offer online price quotes and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.

While you’re price shopping online, it’s a bad idea to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. There have been many cases where someone dropped full coverage only to regret at claim time that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. The proper strategy is to buy enough coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
