Impacting insurance rates for a GMC Rally Wagon

Smart consumers have a good feel for the rating factors that come into play when calculating insurance rates. Understanding what determines base rates helps enable you to make changes that may reward you with better insurance rates.

  • Adjust deductibles and save – The deductibles represent how much money you are required to spend out-of-pocket before a claim is paid by your company. Physical damage coverage, otherwise known as comp (or other than collision) and collision, insures against damage to your car. Some examples of claims that would be covered are colliding with a building, vandalism, and windstorm damage. The more money the insured has to pay upfront, the less your insurance will be on Rally Wagon coverage.
  • More miles equals more premium – The more miles you rack up on your GMC in a year the more you’ll pay to insure your vehicle. Most insurance companies charge to insure your cars based on how the vehicle is used. Cars used primarily for pleasure use can get a lower rate than those used for commuting. Double check that your insurance policy is showing how each vehicle is driven, because it can save money. Incorrect usage on your Rally Wagon can cost quite a bit.
  • Credit scores impact insurance rates – A driver’s credit score is a big factor in your rate calculation. If your credit is lower than you’d like, you could potentially save money when insuring your 1993 GMC Rally Wagon by improving your rating. Drivers who have good credit tend to be better drivers and file fewer claims as compared to drivers with poor credit.
  • Drive a safer car and pay less – Safer cars can get you lower premiums. The safest vehicles protect occupants better and fewer injuries means less money paid by your insurance company and lower rates for you. If the GMC Rally Wagon is rated at least four stars on Safercar.gov it is probably cheaper to insure.
  • Optional equipment can affect rates – Owning a car with a theft deterrent system can get you a discount on your insurance. Anti-theft features like LoJack tracking devices, vehicle tamper alarm systems or GM’s OnStar system can help prevent your car from being stolen.

Comprehensive Insurance Comparison Quotes

There are several ways to get quotes from local insurance companies. The easiest way by far to find the lowest 1993 GMC Rally Wagon rates is to use the internet to compare rates. This can be done in a couple of different ways.

  1. One of the best ways to find low rates is to use a rate comparison form click to view form in new window. This type of form prevents you from having to do boring form submissions to each individual insurance company. A single, simple form gets you price quotes from all major companies. It’s the fastest way to compare.
  2. A more difficult way to shop for insurance online requires a visit to the website for each individual company and complete a new quote form. For examples sake, let’s assume you want rates from Allstate, Safeco and GEICO. To find out each rate you need to visit each site to input your insurance information, which is why most consumers use the first method.

Whichever way you use, be sure to compare the exact same coverage information on every quote you get. If you use different values for each quote you can’t possibly make a fair comparison for your GMC Rally Wagon. Having just a slight variation in coverage limits can result in a big premium difference. And when comparing insurance rates, know that quoting more will improve the odds of getting lower pricing.

Do you qualify for discounts?

Companies do not list all available discounts very clearly, so we break down some of the best known as well as the least known insurance savings.

  • Seat Belt Usage – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts could cut 10% or more off the personal injury premium cost.
  • Multi-policy Discount – When you combine your home and auto insurance with the same insurance company you could get a discount of 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Homeowners Savings – Simply owning a home can help you save on insurance because of the fact that having a home requires personal responsibility.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If you pay your bill all at once instead of monthly or quarterly installments you can actually save on your bill.
  • Student Driver Training – Require your teen driver to enroll in driver’s education in school.
  • Government Employees – Active or retired federal employment can earn a discount up to 10% on Rally Wagon coverage with certain companies.

As a disclaimer on discounts, most discounts do not apply to the entire policy premium. Most only apply to the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. So when the math indicates all those discounts means the company will pay you, it just doesn’t work that way.

A partial list of companies that possibly offer these benefits include:

Double check with every prospective company which discounts they offer. Savings may not apply everywhere.

Don’t assume everyone needs the same coverage

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage for your vehicles, there is no perfect coverage plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different.

These are some specific questions can aid in determining whether you may require specific advice.

  • What if I owe more than I can insure my car for?
  • Do I need special endorsements for business use of my vehicle?
  • Will I be non-renewed for getting a DUI or other conviction?
  • Does coverage extend to a rental car in a foreign country?
  • I have health insurance so do I need medical payments coverage?
  • Are my tools covered if they get stolen from my vehicle?

If it’s difficult to answer those questions but one or more may apply to you, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, complete this form.

Car insurance 101

Knowing the specifics of car insurance helps when choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Collision coverages – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers things like driving through your garage door, colliding with another moving vehicle and rolling your car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Auto liability insurance – Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property. This coverage protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability can pay for claims such as structural damage, legal defense fees, bail bonds, attorney fees and loss of income. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but you should buy as large an amount as possible.

Comprehensive auto coverage – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers things like hitting a deer, theft and vandalism. The maximum payout you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Medical payments and PIP coverage – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like dental work, pain medications and doctor visits. They are often utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants in addition to getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage gives you protection when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Stretch your dollar

Discount 1993 GMC Rally Wagon insurance can be found both online and with local insurance agents, so you should compare both to have the best chance of lowering rates. Some auto insurance companies do not offer online quoting and many times these smaller companies only sell through independent insurance agents.

As you prepare to switch companies, it’s a bad idea to reduce coverage to reduce premium. In many instances, an insured cut liability coverage limits only to regret at claim time they didn’t purchase enough coverage. The proper strategy is to buy a smart amount of coverage at an affordable rate.

In this article, we presented some good ideas how you can lower your insurance rates. The key thing to remember is the more rate quotes you have, the better your comparison will be. Drivers may discover the most savings is with some of the lesser-known companies.
