Three Easy Steps to Lower Kia Magentis Insurance Rates
If we enjoyed shopping for car insurance, we'd do it more often. But we always seem to pay too much for coverage and most people would rather go to the dentist. Finding affordable coverage for your Kia Magentis probably is no different.
Step One: Get Insurance Quotes
Years ago, your local insurance agent was the only way to quote a buy a car insurance policy. Now that we have the internet, shopping for car insurance online is a snap!
All the major car insurance companies sell insurance for a Kia Magentis and you can compare their rates by entering your information only one time.
To start, click the link below to begin entering your information. After you complete the form, you will receive comparison rates from different companies so you easily determine if you can save money.
Read this (it's important)! When doing any car insurance quote to compare rates to either your existing policy or to other quotes, it's important to use identical coverages on all quotes. Otherwise you will not be able to accurately determine which company has the lowest rate for your Magentis.
Step Two: Techniques to Lower your Magentis Insurance Rates
After completing step one and having some rates to compare, you can now focus on policy and lifestyle modifications that will lower your Magentis insurance rates.
- Auto theft is a big problem that costs us all money, but if your car is on the list of the most frequently stolen autos, you might be paying a little extra because of the temptation to thieves.
- Members of many professional organizations can receive discounts on car insurance, and if you're a senior citizen, that could earn you an additional discount.
- Most Kia vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Having recently completed a class in driver's safety could earn you a discount of 5% to 10%. Check with your insurance company to see if they offer that credit.
- A claim-free discount can help keep your rates down, so don't file claims that are only marginally more than your deductible. You're better off keeping the discount.
- Never allow one policy to expire without having a new policy effective the same date. This causes a lapse in coverage and if you don't have insurance for any length of time, your next policy will cost you more.
- 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.
- Owning a home takes financial responsibility, and car insurance companies will often give you a break just for being a homeowner.
- Most of us have received a ticket at one time or another. If you get a ticket for a minor violation, find out if there is a safe driving class you can take to keep the ticket off your driving record.
- Good credit will get you lower car insurance rates. Evidence correlates good credit with low claims, so the better you maintain your credit level, the less risk you are to your company.
- Comprehensive and collision coverages make up the majority of your car insurance bill. If you raise your deductibles, you can will see significant savings with every policy renewal.
Step Three: Buy the Policy That's Right for You
Car insurance is pretty easy to buy online, but you do need to be aware that it is a legally binding contract. You need to have funds available for a down payment as well as review your coverages for any insufficiencies.
If you're cancelling an old policy, make sure the new coverage starts the same day your old policy ends. This avoids any penalty for having a lapse in coverage which can cost you more.
Coverage will extend from your current policy if you're buying a Kia Magentis, but if you don't have a policy, you will need to make sure you have coverage in place before you drive it off the dealership lot. Comprehensive (or Other than Collision) and collision coverage will extend to your new Magentis 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.
After completing your policy purchase, you can print out the proof-of-insurance card to place in your car. Always keep the current card available in case requested by law enforcement or if you are in an accident. 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.
