Car Insurance Prices Online

To find the best car insurance prices, there are several ways to get quotes from local car insurance companies. The easiest way by far to find competitive 2003 Mercury Sable insurance rates is simply to get online rate quotes. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

  • The first (and easiest) way consumers can make multiple comparisons is a comparison rater form click to view form in new window. This easy form saves time by eliminating separate quotation requests for each company. Filling out one form will return price quotes direct from many companies.
  • A less efficient way to find lower rates requires a trip to the website for each individual company and fill out their own quote form. For sake of this example, we’ll assume you want rates from Auto-Owners, Liberty Mutual and Geico. To find out each rate you need to take the time to go to each site to input your insurance information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

  • The least efficient way of comparing rate quotes is to spend your day driving to local insurance agencies. Buying insurance online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you want the trained guidance only provided by licensed agents. You can, however, comparison shop your insurance online but buy from a local insurance agent and you’ll learn how to do that later.

It doesn’t matter which method you choose, just double check that you are using exactly the same quote information for each price quote. If you are comparing unequal deductibles or liability limits it’s impossible to determine the lowest rate for your Mercury Sable. Just a small difference in limits may result in a large different in cost. And when price shopping your coverage, comparing more company’s prices helps locate the best rates.

Tailor your coverage to you

When buying proper insurance coverage, there is no cookie cutter policy. Every insured’s situation is different and your policy should reflect that. For instance, these questions might point out whether you would benefit from professional advice.

  • What if I total my 2003 Mercury Sable and owe more than it’s worth?
  • Does my medical payments coverage pay my health insurance deductible?
  • Will my rates increase for filing one claim?
  • Do I need PIP coverage since I have good health insurance?
  • Are all vehicle passengers covered by medical payments coverage?
  • Should I have a commercial auto policy?
  • Am I covered if I wreck a rental car?

If you’re not sure about those questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you don’t have a local agent, simply complete this short form or go to this page to view a list of companies.

Insurance coverage options for a 2003 Mercury Sable

Having a good grasp of insurance helps when choosing which coverages you need and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverage types available from insurance companies.

Comprehensive protection – Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as vandalism, theft, damage from flooding and hitting a deer. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage – This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. It can pay for injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.

Collision – Collision coverage pays for damage to your Sable from colliding with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision coverage pays for things such as backing into a parked car, hitting a parking meter, rolling your car, driving through your garage door and crashing into a building. This coverage can be expensive, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Medical expense coverage – Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for things like nursing services, X-ray expenses and prosthetic devices. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Liability insurance – Liability insurance provides protection from damage that occurs to other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not 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. As an example, you may have limits of 50/100/50 that means you have $50,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $100,000 in injury protection per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000.

Liability insurance covers things like legal defense fees, loss of income, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical services and pain and suffering. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford.
