2007 Mercury Milan Insurance Quotes – 9 Savings Tips

Nobody I know cherishes buying insurance, especially when the cost is way too high. Online insurance companies like GEICO, Farmers Insurance and State Farm continually hit you with TV and radio ads and it can be hard to see through the deception and effectively compare rates to find the best deal.

Save on Mercury Milan insurance

Car insurance can cost a lot, but companies offer discounts to help offset the cost. Some discounts apply automatically at the time you complete a quote, but some may not be applied and must be specifically requested prior to receiving the credit. If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you’re just leaving money on the table.

  • Seat Belts Save more than Lives – Using a seat belt and requiring all passengers to use their safety belts could save 15% off the personal injury premium cost.
  • Lower Rates for Military – Being on active duty in the military could mean lower rates.
  • Good Students Pay Less – A discount for being a good student can get you a discount of up to 25%. Earning this discount can benefit you well after school through age 25.

A little note about advertised discounts, most credits do not apply to the entire cost. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. Just because it seems like all the discounts add up to a free policy, auto insurance companies aren’t that generous. Any amount of discount will bring down the cost of coverage.

Auto insurance coverages explained

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are the usual coverages available from auto insurance companies.

Coverage for liability

This coverage will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 that means you have $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, 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 provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage protects against things like repair costs for stationary objects, repair bills for other people’s vehicles and bail bonds. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as high a limit as you can afford.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your Mercury Milan.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.

Collision protection

This coverage pays for damage to your Milan from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for things like rolling your car, crashing into a building, colliding with a tree and hitting a mailbox. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance kick in for short-term medical expenses like X-ray expenses, ambulance fees, hospital visits and nursing services. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover both the driver and occupants and also covers any family member struck as a pedestrian. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hail damage, theft and damage from flooding. The most you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.

More quotes mean more savings

We’ve covered quite a bit of information on how to lower your 2007 Mercury Milan insurance rates. The key concept to understand is the more rate comparisons you have, the better chance you’ll have of finding lower rates. Consumers may even find the lowest rates come from a lesser-known regional company. These smaller insurers may have significantly lower rates on certain market segments than their larger competitors like Progressive and GEICO.

Cheap insurance is possible on the web as well as from independent agents, so you should be comparing quotes from both so you have a total pricing picture. There are still a few companies who don’t offer the ability to get a quote online and most of the time these smaller companies sell through independent agents.
