Prices based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Nevada minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-vehicle, claim-free, safe-driver, and multi-policy. Premium costs do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can alter premiums noticeably.

Based on the data above, we can derive that using a $100 deductible costs an average of $26 more each month or $312 annually than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $400 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have at least 15 months between claim filings, you would most likely save money if you elect the higher deductible.

The cost of insuring your cars can be expensive, but you might already qualify for some discounts that you may not know about. Certain credits will be shown at quote time, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically before they will apply.Save money with discounts

Independent Insurance Agencies

Independent agencies are not limited to a single company and that gives them the ability to insure with many different companies and find you the best rates. If they quote lower rates, your agent can switch companies and you can keep the same agent.

When shopping rates, it's a good idea to get some free quotes from several independent agencies for maximum quote selection. Most also have access to smaller companies that may provide cheaper insurance rates.

Exclusive Agencies

Agents that choose to be exclusive have only one company to place business with and examples are Allstate, Farmers Insurance, State Farm, and AAA. These agents are unable to compare other company's rates so always compare other rates. Exclusive insurance agents are well trained on their company's products which helps overcome the inability to quote other rates. Many people buy insurance from these agents mainly due to loyalty to the company and the convenience of having all coverages with one company.

Deciding on an insurance agency should include more criteria than just a cheap price quote. The following questions are important to ask.

Car insurance coverage information

Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine the best coverages for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Medical expense coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for ambulance fees, doctor visits, nursing services, pain medications and funeral costs. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not an option in every state and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive protection

Comprehensive insurance will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like damage from getting keyed, damage from a tornado or hurricane and fire damage. The most you'll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Collision insurance

Collision insurance covers damage to your Maxima caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage pays for things such as colliding with another moving vehicle, crashing into a building, rolling your car and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. Another option is to increase the deductible on your Maxima to bring the cost down.

Liability auto insurance

This protects you from damage or injury you incur to people or other property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 15/30/10 that means you have a limit of $15,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $30,000, and property damage coverage for $10,000. Occasionally you may see a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage pays for claims like repair bills for other people's vehicles, medical services and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but you should buy as much as you can afford. Nevada state law requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/10 but you should consider buying higher limits.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the "other guys" either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Nissan Maxima.

Since many Nevada drivers have only the minimum liability required by law (15/30/10 in Nevada), their limits can quickly be used up. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Normally these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Compare but don't skimp

Consumers who switch companies do it for a variety of reasons including policy non-renewal, denial of a claim, policy cancellation or unfair underwriting practices. No matter why you want to switch, choosing a new insurance company can be less work than you think.

Low-cost Nissan Maxima insurance in Henderson can be purchased on the web and from local agencies, and you should compare price quotes from both to have the best selection. There are still a few companies who don't offer the ability to get quotes online and usually these smaller providers work with independent insurance agencies.

As you prepare to switch companies, it's not a good idea to buy less coverage just to save a little money. In too many instances, drivers have reduced collision coverage only to find out that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your strategy should be to get the best coverage possible at the best possible price, not the least amount of coverage.
