Guide to Insuring your Land Rover Range Rover Sport for Less
If shopping your car insurance around was fun, we'd do it much more often. But the premiums we pay always seem to be too high and most of use would rather get a tooth pulled. Insuring your Land Rover Range Rover Sport is probably no exception.
Step One: Insurance Rate Comparison Quotes
Up until about ten years ago, the only way to shop for car insurance was in the office of a local insurance agent where you'd get a hard sell into a policy. Times have changed!
Comparing apples-to-apples price quotes for your Land Rover Range Rover Sport 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.
Compare rates now by clicking the link below. In just a few minutes you'll have a good idea of what insurance will cost for your Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
Quoting Tip! The only way to compare rates from multiple companies is to use identical coverage amounts and deductibles on each quote. If you use different limits on quotes, you cannot accurately determine which company has the best rates for your Range Rover Sport.
Step Two: Tried and True Ways to Save on Range Rover Sport Insurance
There are many contributing factors that determine what you pay to insure your Land Rover. You can help yourself (and your wallet) by paying attention to the following rate factors.
- The Land Rover Range Rover Sport 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 have a high credit score, you will be rewarded with lower insurance rates. Conversely, if your credit rating is on the low site, your rates will be higher.
- Driver's safety courses will often get you a discount off your rates. Check to see if your company offers the discount and find a qualifying class in your area.
- The SUV class of vehicles generally has higher insurance rates due to the higher chance that you'll drive in adverse weather conditions.
- If switching companies, always have the effective date of the new policy be identical to the expiration date on the old policy. This prevents a lapse in coverage and companies charge higher rates if you have any lapses.
- If you are a renter rather than a homeowner, you might pay a little more to insure your car. Owning a home takes financial repsonsibility and insurance companies reward those policy holders.
- If you are a senior citizen or belong to a particular professional organization, you may qualify for a break on insurance.
- Consider using higher deductibles for physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. Higher deductibles save money since you're willing to pay more out-of-pocket at claim time.
- Youthful or teen drivers that are rated on any vehicle will cost more. The inexperience and tendancy to enjoy going fast is a recipe for an accident.
- Speeding not only costs you a fine, a single ticket will raise your car insurance rates for up to three years. Slow down and be a safe driver and you'll pay lower rates.
- The less chance of injury to passengers in an accident means lower insurance rates. Vehicles with safety features like side-impact airbags, head injury protection, antilock bracks and traction control generally will be cheaper to insure.
- Small claims that may only exceed your physical damage deductibles by a small amount are better off not being submitted to your company. Just pay the extra hundred dollars or two and keep a claim-free discount on your policy.
- Particular years and models of cars tend to be frequently stolen, and if your Range Rover Sport is on that list, chances are your insurance company knows it and will ding you a little extra because of it.
Step Three: Choose a Company and Bind Coverage
Knowing which company to insure your Range Rover Sport with is more than just choosing the lowest rate. You also need to be ready to put a down payment on your policy and make sure you have all the proper coverages in place.
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.
If this is a new policy with only the Land Rover on it, be sure to have coverage before leaving the dealership or car lot. If you're adding it to an existing policy, you have anywhere from 15 to 30 days depending on the company. When driving off the lot, you may have coverage that extends from your current policy. But it will only be equal to the most coverage you have on any vehicle. So if you only carry liability coverage, you won't be covered for full coverage until you specify it on your policy.
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. High risk drivers may be required to submit an SR-22 with their state DMV's. If you have been convicted of reckless driving, DUI or had an uninsured accident, you may qualify. Make sure your new policy reflects the need for the SR-22 filing.
