1994 Chevrolet Blazer Insurance Quotes – 7 Tips for Cheaper Rates

Nobody I know enjoys paying for auto insurance, in particular when their premiums are through the roof.

Companies like Geico, Farmers Insurance and State Farm increase brand awareness with ad campaigns and it is challenging if not impossible to ignore the flashy ads and do the work needed to find the best deal.

If you currently have a car insurance policy, you will be able to reduce your rates substantially using these techniques. Finding affordable coverage is quite easy. But vehicle owners should learn the way companies market on the web and take advantage of how the system works.

How to Compare Car Insurance Costs

When shopping for car insurance there are multiple ways of comparing rate quotes and find the best price. The quickest method to find the lowest 1994 Chevy Blazer rates is to get quotes online. This can be done in a couple of different ways.

  1. The first (and easiest) way to get quotes is a comparison rater form click here to open form in new window. This form saves time by eliminating separate quote forms for every car insurance company. Taking the time to complete one form will get you rate comparisons from many national carriers.
  2. A slightly less efficient method to find lower rates requires a visit to the website for each individual company and request a quote. For example, we’ll pretend you want rates from Allstate, Esurance and American Family. To find out each rate you need to spend time on each company’s site and enter your information, which is why the first method is quicker. To view a list of companies in your area, click here.
  3. The most time-consuming way of comparing rate quotes is to spend your day driving to and from local insurance agencies. The ability to buy insurance online eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you require the personal advice only provided by licensed agents. However, consumers can comparison shop online and still use a local agent. We’ll cover that shortly.

It’s up to you which method you use, but compare exactly the same coverage limits with each company. If you are comparing different limits and deductibles on each one it’s not possible to make a fair comparison for your Chevy Blazer. Just a small difference in coverages could mean much higher rates. And when price shopping your coverage, having more price comparisons will improve the odds of getting the best rates.

Discounts are basically free money

Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but there are discounts available to cut the cost considerably. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied at the time of purchase, but a few must be asked about prior to receiving the credit.

  • Accident Forgiveness – A few companies permit an accident without raising rates if you are claim-free prior to the accident.
  • Memberships – Being a member of a qualifying organization may earn a discount on auto insurance on Blazer coverage.
  • Discount for Good Grades – Performing well in school can be rewarded with saving of up to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you until age 25.
  • Driver Safety – Successfully completing a course teaching defensive driving skills could save 5% or more depending on where you live.
  • Discount for Swiching Early – Some companies give discounts for buying a policy prior to your current policy expiring. The savings is around 10%.
  • Homeowners Savings – Simply owning a home can save you money because owning a home requires personal responsibility.
  • Multiple Vehicles – Having multiple vehicles on one policy can get a discount on all vehicles.

A little note about advertised discounts, most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Most cut specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. Even though it may seem like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn’t make money that way. Any amount of discount will reduce the amount you have to pay.

Auto insurance coverage considerations

Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be difficult to understand and coverage can change by endorsement. Shown next are typical coverage types available from auto insurance companies.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and damage to your Chevy Blazer.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked. Usually these limits are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Auto liability

This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. Liability doesn’t cover your own vehicle damage or injuries.

Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see values of 25/50/25 which means a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of coverage for damaged propery. Another option is one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, attorney fees, repair costs for stationary objects and funeral expenses. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Collision coverage

This will pay to fix damage to your Blazer caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb, rolling your car and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to raise the deductible to bring the cost down.

Comprehensive auto coverage

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as hitting a deer, hail damage and theft. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for expenses for X-ray expenses, dental work, ambulance fees and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to you and your occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Saving money makes a lot of cents

While you’re price shopping online, never reduce coverage to reduce premium. In too many instances, an insured cut liability coverage limits and learned later that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your goal should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at the best price.

You just read a lot of tips how to reduce 1994 Chevy Blazer insurance prices online. The most important thing to understand is the more rate comparisons you have, the higher the chance of saving money. Consumers may even find the best price on insurance is with a smaller regional carrier. These smaller insurers can often provide lower rates in certain areas compared to the large companies like State Farm or Progressive.
