Analysis of deductible levels

When buying auto insurance, a common question is which comprehensive and collision deductibles to buy. The data tables below summarize the cost difference between low and high coverage deductibles. The first set of prices uses a $250 deductible for comprehensive and collision coverage and the second set of prices uses a $1,000 deductible.

Table data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Nevada minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, claim-free, multi-policy, homeowner, and multi-vehicle. Prices do not factor in specific location which can impact premium rates noticeably.

We can estimate from the data above that using a $250 deductible will cost you roughly $26 more each month or $312 each year than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $750 more to file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to go more than 29 months between claim filings, you would come out ahead if you elect the higher deductible.

Full coverage rates compared to liability-only

The example below visualizes the comparison of Scion tC insurance rates with and without full coverage. The premiums assume no accidents, no driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, single female driver, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Guidelines for eliminating full coverage

There is no clear-cut rule that works best for making the decision to drop physical damage coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

For example, let's assume your Scion tC settlement value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would receive is $3,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If premium cost is more than $300 annually for physical damage coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some conditions where buying only liability insurance is not a good idea. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage to protect the lienholder's interest. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not consider dropping full coverage.

Get cheaper Scion tC insurance in Henderson with discounts

Companies that sell car insurance don't always publicize every discount they offer in a way that's easy to find, so the following is a list of some of the more common as well as some of the hidden discounts you could be receiving when you buy Henderson auto insurance online. If you check and find you aren't receiving every discount available, it's possible you qualify for a lower rate.Save money with discounts

Discounts reduce rates, but you should keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to the whole policy. A few only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like comp or med pay. So when the math indicates it's possible to get free car insurance, insurance companies wouldn't stay in business.

A few of the larger companies and their possible discounts can be found below.

If you need inexpensive Henderson auto insurance quotes, ask each company to apply every possible discount. Some discounts might not apply in your area.

Finding the right insurance agency should depend on more than just the price. Here are some questions you should ask.

Once you have received good responses and a low price estimate, it's a good possibility that you have found an insurance agency that meets the criteria to insure your vehicles.

Save $456 a year! What?

Consumers in Nevada can't get away from all the ads that claim the lowest rates by companies like Allstate and Progressive. All the ads convey the message about savings just by moving to their company.

It sounds good, but how can they all charge less that you're paying now? It's all in the wording.

All the different companies are able to cherry pick for the type of customer that will not have excessive claims. For example, this type of insured could be between the ages of 40 and 55, has a low-risk occupation, and drives a lower-performance vehicle. Any person that hits that "sweet spot" will qualify for the lowest rates in Henderson and will pay quite a bit less when switching companies.

Insureds who do not meet those criteria will get higher premiums which results in the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The trick is to say "customers that switch" not "all people who quote" can save as much as they claim. That is how insurance companies can make those statements.

This illustrates why you really should compare quotes as often as possible. It's impossible to know which insurance companies will have the best Scion tC insurance in Henderson.

Car insurance coverage breakdown

Understanding the coverages of car insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Listed below are typical coverages available from car insurance companies.

Liability insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other's property or people. This insurance protects YOU against claims from other people. It does not cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 15/30/10 which means $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $10,000. Some companies may use a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability coverage pays for things like attorney fees, repair costs for stationary objects, legal defense fees and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it's cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible. Nevada requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/10 but you should think about purchasing higher limits.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for immediate expenses for EMT expenses, surgery and hospital visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage

Collision insurance

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your tC resulting from a collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for things such as damaging your car on a curb, hitting a parking meter, crashing into a building, backing into a parked car and sustaining damage from a pot hole. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to raise the deductible on your tC in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Comprehensive insurance

This coverage covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things such as vandalism, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from getting keyed, damage from a tornado or hurricane and rock chips in glass. The maximum payout a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle's value is low it's probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants when the "other guys" either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle's occupants and also any damage incurred to your Scion tC.

Due to the fact that many Nevada drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (which is 15/30/10), it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time these limits do not exceed the liability coverage limits.

Frequent quotes can save

As you quote Henderson auto insurance, it's not a good idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. In too many instances, someone sacrificed comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. The proper strategy is to buy the best coverage you can find at the best possible price, but do not sacrifice coverage to save money.

Lower-priced car insurance in Henderson is attainable both online in addition to local insurance agencies, so you should compare both to have the best selection. There are still a few companies who may not have price quotes online and most of the time these smaller companies only sell through local independent agents.
