Cheaper Plymouth Colt Insurance in Five Minutes or Less
If buying auto insurance was as easy as it sounds on TV commercials, we'd have no problem getting the lowest rates. But we always seem to pay too much for coverage and most people would rather go to the dentist. You might feel the same pain when having to pay the bill on your Plymouth Colt.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rate Quotes
The antiquated method of shopping for car insurance included a high pressure visit to the office of your local insurance agent. Now that we have the internet, shopping for car insurance online is a snap!
The first step to finding lower Plymouth Colt rates is to get quotes from all the major car insurance companies. This is fast and easy and only requires you to complete one form.
To compare rates now, have your current policy handy (if you have one) and click the link below. Complete the short form and move on to step two.
Quote Tip! When doing car insurance quotes for your Colt, make sure you use the exact same values for coverages and deductibles. If you use different limits, you will not be able to fairly compare rates between different companies.
Step Two: Techniques to Lower your Colt Insurance Rates
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 Colt that will also lower the rate you pay irregardless of which company you choose.
- 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.
- Each year make a habit of checking your credit score. If you find problems that may be dragging down your credit rating, address them immediately. This will result in significant savings on car insurance.
- If your insurance company allows driver-specific car rating, you can save money by rating any teenage drivers on low profile vehicles with either no physical damage coverage or very high deductibles.
- 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.
- 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 you have a period where you don't have any insurance coverage, that's called a lapse. The longer the lapse, the more you'll pay to reinstate coverage.
- If your vehicle comes with safety features such as electronic stability control, head restraints, all-wheel drive or air bags, these all help keep insurance costs down by helping reduce accident injuries.
- 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.
- 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.
- Insurance companies often give discounts to senior citizens and professional organizations, so if you're one of those, check to see if you qualify.
- Thieves tend to steal certain makes and models of vehicles more than others, and if your car is on that list, expect to pay higher insurance rates because of it.
Step Three: Choose the Right Company 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.
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 Plymouth Colt, 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. Be sure to have a new policy ready to go if you are buying a new Colt. If you've never had car insurance or don't have a policy now, you won't have any protection on the vehicle until you add it to your policy.
Upon completion of buying your policy, you need to print out the financial responsibility card that must be kept in your vehicle at all times. Replace any old cards and promptly replace expired cards. An SR-22 filing may be required by your state's DMV if you've been convicted of a serious driving offense such as DUI, DWI or reckless driving. If this applies to you, make sure the car insurance company complies with the SR-22 requirement.
