Step Two: Insider Tips for Finding Cheaper M56 Insurance
There are many contributing factors that determine what you pay to insure your Infiniti. You can help yourself (and your wallet) by paying attention to the following rate factors.
- If you need the extra performance that your Infiniti M56 gives you, then you'll have to pay extra to insure it. Higher performance cars tend to be more expensive to insure.
- 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.
- Repair shops have more expenses when repairing damage on luxury vehicles, so they will charge your insurance company more to make the repairs. This will be evident in your insurance rates even if you don't have a claim.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bundling your auto and home insurance with the same company can often get you a discount, and just being a homeowner in itself will get you a lower rate.
- If you're over the age of 55, check to see if you qualify for a senior citizen discount. Qualification age may vary by company
- A deductible is the amount you pay before your company pays a comprehensive or collision claim. If you increase your deductibles, you will pay less for these coverages.
- If you have any teenage drivers in your household, expect to fork out quite a bit more for insurance. Rating them on a low profile vehicle with liability only coverage is the best way to save money.

- Safety features such as passive restraints and air bag systems help reduce injuries in and accident, and car insurance companies will charge lower rates if these features are present.
- 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.
- For some reason, car theives target particular makes and models more than others. If your M56 is on the list of the top stolen cars, you might want to install an extra theft deterrent system just to be safe.
Step Three: Finalize your Policy Details
Now that you hopefully have several rates to compare and have made any changes needed to your individual coverages, you can choose the best company to insure your M56 with.
It's critical that your new policy starts the same day that your old policy ends. If you are cancelling mid-term, make sure there is no lapse in coverage before your new policy kicks in.
If you don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Infiniti off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. Anytime you buy a vehicle, you want to make sure coverage is in place before driving off the lot. If you have a policy now, you will have at least liability coverage. But if you don't insure any vehicles with full coverage, then you will put your new M56 at risk as soon as you drive away.
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. SR-22 filings are for high risk drivers and ensure that you have met your state's financial responsibility requirements. If you have DUI, DWI or uninsured accident convictions, you may have to file an SR-22 with your state DMV.
