Cut your Cadillac Deville Insurance Rates in Five Minutes
If buying auto insurance was as easy as it sounds on TV commercials, we'd have no problem getting the lowest rates. But the reality is, you probably don't enjoy it and you think it costs too much. Insuring your Cadillac Deville is probably no exception.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rate Quotes
If it's been a few years since you shopped for car insurance, you might still think the only way to buy is from a local agent. But now you can eliminate that hassle and buy online!
All the major car insurance companies sell insurance for a Cadillac Deville and you don't even have to visit each individual website!
To begin, click on the link below and complete the short form. It only takes a few minutes and it's helpful to have your current policy handy if you have one.
Same Limits on Quotes! This tip is very important. The only way to accurately compare rates on your Deville is to use the same limits of liability as well as deductibles on physical damage coverage. You won't be able to compare rates if you use different values on your quotes.
Step Two: Insider Tips for Finding Cheaper Deville Insurance
If you have completed step one above (if not, please complete that step first), then you are now ready to learn some ways to insure your Deville that will also lower the rate you pay irregardless of which company you choose.
- The Cadillac Deville is a high performance vehicle. Insurance rates are higher on cars that offer larger engines, more horsepower or increased risk of accident or rollover.
- If you car makes the top ten list of most stolen cars, you might be paying a little extra to insure it.
- Owning a luxury vehicle like your Deville means you'll pay a little more for insurance due to the higher cost of repair parts.
- With age comes cheaper rates! If you're a senior citizen, many car insurance companies will give you a discount. Also, if you belong to a professional organization, check to see if your company gives discounts to members.
- Claims that aren't much more than your deductible are better off just being paid out of pocket. If you get into a habit of filing smaller claims, you will pay for it in higher rates.
- Bundling your auto and home insurance with the same company can often get you a discount, and just being a homeowner in itself will get you a lower rate.
- If your Cadillac is equipped with safety features such as airbags, anti-lock brakes or a security system, insurance companies will often give a minor discount for those.
- Do not allow your current car insurance coverage to lapse or expire. Insurance companies have a simple way to find out when your last policy ended (called a CLUE report), and if you went without coverage for any length of time you may pay more for coverage.
- One of the easiest ways to keep your rates down is to drive safe. One speeding ticket can boost your rates for three years.
- If you've recently completed a driver's training or safety course, tell your insurance company. You may qualify for a 5-10% discount.
- If you have any teenage drivers in your household, expect to fork out quite a bit more for insurance. Rating them on a low profile vehicle with liability only coverage is the best way to save money.
- How's your credit score? If it's good you will pay a lower rate than your poor credit counterparts. Work on improving weak credit and you will eventually see your car insurance bill go down.
- A deductible is the amount you pay before your company pays a comprehensive or collision claim. If you increase your deductibles, you will pay less for these coverages.
Step Three: Choose a Company and Bind Coverage
Now that you hopefully have several rates to compare and have made any changes needed to your individual coverages, you can choose the best company to insure your Deville with.
The key thing to keep in mind when buying a new policy is you do not want your old policy to lapse. Make sure the effective date of the new policy is on or before the expiration date of your current policy.
Any time you buy a new vehicle, make sure you have car insurance in place, either from an existing policy or a new policy that you purchase from the dealership floor. If your current policy has any vehicle with full coverage (comprehensive and collision), then your new Deville will have that coverage extended to it. If you only have liability coverage on your policy, then you have no physical damage coverage on your new purchase.
Be sure to replace any old proof-of-insurance cards in your car. You must always have the current card in your vehicle as required by state law. If an SR-22 is required due to a reckless driving conviction, DUI or conviction of driving without insurance, make sure your new company is aware of that. Not filing a court-ordered SR-22 can result in suspension of your driver's license.
