Consumers get pounded daily by advertisements that promise big savings from the likes of State Farm, Allstate and GEICO. They all have a common claim about savings after switching your coverage to them.
How can each company make almost identical claims? This is how they do it.
Different companies can use profiling for the type of driver that earns them a profit. An example of a driver they prefer might be profiled as between the ages of 40 and 55, insures multiple vehicles, and chooses high deductibles. Any driver that hits that “sweet spot” receives the best rates and as a result will probably save quite a bit of money when switching.
Potential customers who don’t meet these standards will be quoted more money which usually ends up with business going elsewhere.

Liability car insurance
Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property that is your fault. It protects YOU against claims from other people, and doesn’t cover damage to your own property or vehicle.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You might see policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, $300,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability can pay for things like funeral expenses, pain and suffering and attorney fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This covers damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like theft, fire damage, damage from getting keyed, hitting a bird and vandalism. The highest amount you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This gives you protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This pays for damage to your H2 from colliding with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage pays for things such as sustaining damage from a pot hole, hitting a mailbox and sideswiping another vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.
Medical expense insurance
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses for surgery, doctor visits, hospital visits and pain medications. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if there is no health insurance coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Cost effective 2007 HUMMER H2 insurance can be found both online in addition to many insurance agents, and you should compare price quotes from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from.

Your aim should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
