Table data assumes single female driver age 40, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $250 deductibles, and Nevada minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, safe-driver, claim-free, homeowner, and multi-vehicle. Price estimates do not factor in specific location information which can lower or raise auto insurance rates greatly.
Reckless driving habits raise auto insurance rates
The information below highlights how traffic violations and at-fault accidents influence Chevrolet Silverado insurance premiums for each age group. The costs are based on a married female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $250 deductibles, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
Seven discounts for lower-cost auto insurance quotes
Buying auto insurance is not cheap, but discounts can save money and there are some available that you may not even be aware of. Some trigger automatically at quote time, but some may not be applied and must be requested specifically before they will apply.
- Federal Employees - Employees or retirees of the government can save as much as 8% but check with your company.
- Discount for New Cars - Insuring a vehicle that is new is cheaper since new vehicles have better safety ratings.
- Defensive Driving Course - Participating in a course that instructs on driving safety could save 5% or more and also improve your driving technique.
- Military Discounts - Having an actively deployed family member may lower your premium rates slightly.
- Life Insurance - Some insurance companies give a lower premium rate if you buy life insurance from them.
- Club Memberships - Participating in a civic or occupational organization in Reno is a simple method to lower premiums on your bill.
- Driving Data Discount - Reno drivers who agree to allow driving data submission to monitor driving manner by using a telematics device in their vehicle such as Progressive's Snapshot could see a rate decrease if their driving habits are good.
As a sidenote, many deductions do not apply to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce individual premiums such as collision or personal injury protection. If you do the math and it seems like all those discounts means the company will pay you, that's just not realistic.

Selecting an auto insurance agent should include more criteria than just the quoted price. You should also get answers to these questions.
- What will you get paid if your car is a total loss? How is that amount determined?
- Do they prorate repair cost based on vehicle mileage?
- Do the agents have professional certifications like CPCU or CIC?
- Do they have 24-hour customer assistance?
- Which insurance companies are they affiliated with?
- Do they get paid more for recommending certain coverages?
- Can you choose the body shop in case repairs are needed?
The coverage is in the details
Understanding the coverages of your policy can help you determine appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Auto collision coverage
This covers damage to your Silverado from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims such as colliding with another moving vehicle, driving through your garage door and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible on your Silverado to save money on collision insurance.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
This pays for damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed, damage from flooding and hitting a deer. The maximum payout your insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's not worth carrying full coverage.
Liability car insurance
This provides protection from damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You might see liability limits of 15/30/10 which stand for $15,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $30,000, and a limit of $10,000 paid for damaged property. Another option is a combined limit which provides one coverage limit with no separate limits for injury or property damage.
Liability can pay for claims such as repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and medical expenses. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as large an amount as possible. Nevada state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/10 but you should think about purchasing more coverage.
Insurance for medical payments
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for ambulance fees, doctor visits and chiropractic care. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and damage to your Chevy Silverado.
Since many Nevada drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (which is 15/30/10), it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Frequently these coverages are identical to your policy's liability coverage.
Persistence will pay off
