Insure Your Chevrolet R3500 Pickup For Less Than You Are Paying Now
If comparing car insurance was easy, most of us would do it more often. But most likely we pay more than we want to and don't really enjoy the buying process. You probably feel the same way when trying to find cheaper coverage for your Chevrolet R3500 Pickup.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rates
Years ago, your local insurance agent was the only way to quote a buy a car insurance policy. Life has gotten easier!
Comparing apples-to-apples price quotes for your Chevrolet R3500 Pickup is made easy by only requiring one form to be completed. This will shop your coverage with multiple companies and allow you to easily compare rates.
Take the first step by clicking the link below. By answering a few questions you'll be able to compare rates quickly and easily.
Quote Tip! In order to accurately compare rates for your R3500 Pickup, it's critical that you use the same limits and deductibles for liability and physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. If you use different limits, you will not be able to accurately compare rates between carriers.
Step Two: How to Lower your R3500 Pickup Insurance Premium
After completing step one above, you can now learn some of the other ways to slash your R3500 Pickup insurance costs.
- If you belong to a professional organization, check to see if that can earn you a discount. If you're over the age of 55, check to see if they have a senior citizen discount as well.
- If you're not sure what your credit rating is, check it now. Car insurance companies use your credit score to determine the rates you pay, so the better your credit, the less you will pay.
- Ask your insurance company if there is a discount for completing a driver's safety course. It may get you up to a 10% discount at your next renewal.
- Safety features such as antilock brakes, traction control and air bag systems all help reduce the cost of car insurance by keeping the passengers safer.
- Higher deductibles save money. If you can afford to pay a larger portion of a comprehensive or collision claim, you will pay substantially less for those coverages if you increase your deductibles to $500 or even $1,000.
- Insurance companies pay attention to which vehicles are stolen the most, so if your car is frequently targeted by thieves, chances are good you will pay more for insurance if you live in certain parts of the country.
- 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.
- Owning a home takes financial responsibility, and car insurance companies will often give you a break just for being a homeowner.
- A single speeding ticket can cost you several hundreds of dollars over the next three years thanks to increased car insurance rates. Slow down and drive safely.
- Teen drivers have a tendancy to learn the hard way when driving, and that means having a few fender-benders. Rating them on a high profile newer vehicle can be very expensive so you might consider buying an older model vehicle for them to drive and only insure it with liability coverage.
- Gaps in insurance coverage will cause problems for your insurance rates. Don't let your policy expire without having new coverage in place.
Step Three: Purchase a New Policy
Choosing a new car insurance company is not easy. But hopefully you have a handful of quotes for your R3500 Pickup that will give you a good idea of how much it will cost, as well as some idea of any coverage changes you may want to make.
You can cancel a policy at any time, but just remember to make the effective date of the replacement policy the exact same as the date you cancel your old policy. You do not want any gaps in coverage between policies.
When buying a new vehicle, coverage will extend from your existing policy. But if you don't have a car insurance policy, you will want to make sure you have coverage BEFORE you drive off the lot. Comprehensive (or Other than Collision) and collision coverage will extend to your new R3500 Pickup if you current have a vehicle insured with those coverages. If you aren't insured or only carry basic liability coverage, then you will be inadequately insured until you add the vehicle to your policy with full coverage.
Once you finish buying your new policy, you will need to print out the proof-of-insurance card that is provided by your new company. This card is proof that you meet the state's minimum liability limits and is required to be kept in your vehicle. If you're considered a high-risk driver, having been convicted of a DUI, DWI, reckless driving or had your license suspended, you may need to file a SR-22. Be sure your new company files this form with your state DMV. Failure to do so can result in losing your right to drive.
