Use the Same Coverages! It's really important that when doing multiple quotes for your AIV Roadster that you use identical coverages for liability, comprehensive and collision. If you use different values, it's impossible to determine which company has the lower rates.
Step Two: How to Save on AIV Roadster Insurance
What you actually pay to insure your Panoz is determined by many factors, some of which you have no control over.
- Cheap insurance rates and high performance don't usually mix. If low rates are your goal, the Panoz AIV Roadster is probably not the best vehicle due to it's above average performance.
- You can check your credit score for free once a year, and it's a good idea to address any problems you find. Better credit results in better insurance rates.
- If you're willing to shoulder more of the cost at claim time, consider raising your comprehensive and collision deductibles. This can easily cut 30% or more from your policy premium.
- Even if you don't take advantage of the sporty nature of the AIV Roadster, other people will and you'll pay more for insurance based on the higher rating class of the vehicle.
- 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.
- Membership has it's privleges. If you're a member of a professional organization, check to see if your company offers discounts to its members. It can add up to 5% or more.
- 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.
- If your teen driver has completed a driver's education class in school, check to see if your insurance company offers any discounts for this.
- Having any gaps in coverage (known as a lapse) is bad in the eyes of any insurance company. Make sure you keep coverage in force at all times by synchronizing the expiration and effective dates of your policies.
- Equipping your Panoz with available safety features such as air bags and passive restraints allows you to take advantage of additional discounts.
- 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.
- Teen drivers are expensive to insure and the only way to lower your rates is to rate them on an older vehicle with basic liability coverage.
- Renters will find they may be paying more for insurance as compared to homeowners. Owning a home can often get you a small discount on your car insurance.
Step Three: Choose the Right Company for You
If you have found a good price by comparing quotes and also made informed decisions regarding policy limits, deductibles and other policy options that are available, you can now purchase the policy and bind coverage.
Car insurance policies don't have to be cancelled at the renewal date, but just be sure the new policy starts the same day you cancel your old policy. This avoids any gaps in coverage between policies.
Coverage will extend from your current policy if you're buying a Panoz AIV Roadster, 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. If your current policy has any vehicle with full coverage (comprehensive and collision), then your new AIV Roadster 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.
All states require you to keep the proof-of-insurance or financial responsibility card in your vehicle at all times. Failure to produce this document can result in a citation. 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.
