Most major insurance companies quote insurance quotes on the web. The process is fairly simple as you just type in your personal and coverage information into the quote form.

Understanding the coverages of insurance can help you determine appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Collision coverage covers damage to your Safari caused by collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail and crashing into a ditch. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Drivers also have the option to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
This coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and $100,000 of coverage for damaged propery.
Liability can pay for claims such as funeral expenses, medical services, structural damage, repair costs for stationary objects and court costs. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, falling objects, theft, vandalism and fire damage. The most your insurance company will pay is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Coverage for medical expenses
Med pay and PIP coverage pay for expenses for things like surgery, nursing services, X-ray expenses, funeral costs and prosthetic devices. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Medical payments and PIP cover both the driver and occupants and will also cover if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants and also any damage incurred to your 1997 GMC Safari.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.
