Do you think you bought an overpriced auto insurance policy? Say no more because there are lots of people in the same boat.
Remarkably, a study showed that the vast majority of drivers kept their coverage with the same auto insurance company for well over three years, and about 40% of consumers have never compared rates from other carriers. American drivers could save almost 46.5% a year by just comparing rate quotes, but they feel it's too difficult to shop their coverage around.
Big companies like State Farm, Allstate, GEICO and Progressive all claim big savings with ads and it can be hard to ignore the flying pigs and cute green geckos and take the time to shop coverage around.

Cost estimates assume single female driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, and Nevada minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, multi-policy, claim-free, safe-driver, and homeowner. Rate quotes do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can raise or lower prices greatly.
Safe drivers pay less for auto insurance
The information below shows how speeding tickets and at-fault accidents can raise GMC Yukon premium costs for each different age category. The prices are based on a married male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no other discounts are factored in.
Does full coverage make sense?
The information below illustrates the difference between GMC Yukon annual premium costs with and without full coverage. The data assumes a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, married male driver, and no additional discounts are factored in.
Guidelines for eliminating full coverage
There is no exact rule that works best for making the decision to drop physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the annual cost of coverage is more than 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.
For example, let's assume your GMC Yukon replacement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would receive is $5,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If premium cost is more than $500 a year to have full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
There are some circumstances where dropping full coverage is not financially feasible. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is totaled, you should not drop full coverage.
Companies offer lots of discounts on GMC Yukon insurance in Henderson
Car insurance companies don't necessarily list every discount they offer in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of a few of the more common and also the lesser-known savings tricks you should be using when you buy Henderson auto insurance online. If you check and find you aren't receiving every discount you qualify for, it's possible you qualify for a lower rate.
- Driver Training Discounts - Taking a safe driver course could cut 5% off your bill if you qualify.
- Low Mileage Discounts - Keeping the miles down on your GMC can qualify you for lower auto insurance rates due to less chance of an accident.
- Payment Method - By making one initial payment instead of making monthly payments you could save 5% or more.
- Distant Student - Any of your kids who are enrolled in a college that is more than 100 miles from Henderson and do not have access to a covered vehicle could qualify for this discount.
- Discounts for Responsible Drivers - Drivers who avoid accidents can save up to 40% or more on their Henderson auto insurance quote than less cautious drivers.
- Active Military Service - Being deployed with a military unit could mean lower auto insurance rates.
Discounts save money, but please remember that most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. A few only apply to individual premiums such as physical damage coverage or medical payments. If you do the math and it seems like you could get a free auto insurance policy, you won't be that lucky. Any qualifying discounts will positively reduce your policy premium.
Some companies that may include these benefits are:

Beware of misleading car insurance ads
Car insurance companies such as State Farm, Allstate and GEICO continually stream ads on TV and radio. All the ads tend to make the same promise that people will save if you get a free Henderson auto insurance quote and switch your policy. How can each company sell you cheaper insurance coverage? This is the trick they use.
Most companies can use profiling for the type of driver that earns them the most money. One example of a profitable risk profile could be between the ages of 40 and 55, insures multiple vehicles, and drives less than 10,000 miles a year. Any driver who fits those characteristics will get low prices and will also save quite a bit of money when switching.
Insureds who fall outside the "perfect" profile will see higher premiums which results in the prospect going elsewhere. If you listen closely, the ads state "drivers who switch" not "everybody who quotes" can save as much as they claim. That is how insurance companies can make it sound like they have such great auto insurance rates. Each company has different criteria, so drivers must get a wide range of price quotes. It's impossible to know which insurance companies will fit you best based on your risk profile.
Auto insurance coverage basics
Knowing the specifics of auto insurance can be of help when determining appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are the normal coverages found on the average auto insurance policy.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Yukon from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage pays for things like crashing into a ditch, damaging your car on a curb, sustaining damage from a pot hole, colliding with another moving vehicle and backing into a parked car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It's also possible to bump up the deductible on your Yukon in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Liability coverage can cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. This coverage protects you against other people's claims. Liability doesn't cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. Your policy might show values of 15/30/10 which means $15,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, $30,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $10,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for claims such as bail bonds, pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid and attorney fees. How much liability should you purchase? That is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible. Nevada requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/10 but you should consider buying higher limits.
Comprehensive or Other Than Collision
This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as damage from getting keyed, hail damage and theft. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Medical costs insurance
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for immediate expenses for nursing services, pain medications and ambulance fees. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. It can pay for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your GMC Yukon.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (15/30/10), their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.
One last thing about your coverage
Cheap GMC Yukon insurance in Henderson is available from both online companies and with local Henderson insurance agents, and you should be comparing both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some insurance providers may not offer rates over the internet and these small, regional companies work with local independent agents.
As you prepare to switch companies, don't be tempted to buy lower coverage limits just to save a few bucks. In too many instances, drivers have reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits to discover at claim time they didn't purchase enough coverage. The proper strategy is to buy the best coverage you can find at the best price.
