Comprehensive Car Insurance Comparison

Getting a lower price on 1999 Mitsubishi Montero insurance is actually quite simple. You just have to spend a few minutes on the computer getting comparison quotes online with multiple companies. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

  • One of the best ways consumers can make multiple comparisons would be an industry-wide quote request form like this one (opens in new window). This easy form eliminates the need for repetitive form entry for every car insurance company. A single form will return quotes from multiple low-cost companies. It’s the fastest way to compare.
  • A less efficient way to obtain and compare quotes online is spending the time to visit each individual company website and fill out their own quote form. For examples sake, we’ll pretend you want to compare rates from State Farm, GEICO and Progressive. To get each rate you have to spend time on each company’s site to input your insurance information, which is why most consumers use the first method.

  • The most time-consuming way of getting rate comparisons is to drive around to and from local insurance agencies. The ability to buy insurance online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you prefer the personal advice of a local agent. It is possible to compare the best prices online and still use a local agent. We’ll cover that shortly.

Whichever method you choose, ensure you’re using the exact same information for every quote you compare. If you compare mixed coverages it will be very difficult to determine the lowest rate for your Mitsubishi Montero.

Will just any policy work for me?

When buying adequate coverage, there really is no best way to insure your cars. Every situation is different.

Here are some questions about coverages that might help in determining whether you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • Is my cargo covered for damage or theft?
  • Are my friends covered when driving my car?
  • Can I afford to pay high deductible claims out of pocket?
  • Do I have any recourse if my insurance company denies a claim?
  • Does my policy cover my teen driver if they drive my company car?
  • Do I need replacement cost coverage on my 1999 Mitsubishi Montero?
  • How can I force my company to pay a claim?

If you can’t answer these questions then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. To find an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form. It’s fast, doesn’t cost anything and you can get the answers you need.

Coverage specifics

Having a good grasp of your policy can help you determine the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Collision coverage – This will pay to fix damage to your Montero from colliding with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims such as driving through your garage door, crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. You can also raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage – Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle 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 Mitsubishi Montero.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Medical payments coverage and PIP – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for immediate expenses such as nursing services, funeral costs, pain medications and hospital visits. They can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers all vehicle occupants and will also cover being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive coverage – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for claims like hitting a deer, a broken windshield, hail damage, damage from flooding and hitting a bird. The highest amount a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Liability coverages – Liability insurance provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property by causing an accident. It protects YOU against other people’s claims. 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 might see limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, legal defense fees, emergency aid and repair bills for other people’s vehicles. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but buy as large an amount as possible.
