Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you use identical deductibles and coverage limits for every quote you compare.

Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but there could be available discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Larger premium reductions will be automatically applied when you get a quote, but a few need to be specially asked for before you will receive the discount.
It’s important to note that most credits do not apply the the whole policy. A few only apply to individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Just because you may think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, insurance coverage companies aren’t that generous. But all discounts will help reduce your premiums.

This covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like rock chips in glass, fire damage, a broken windshield and hail damage. The highest amount your insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Collision coverage pays for damage to your Tundra caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things like damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and colliding with a tree. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from older vehicles. It’s also possible to bump up the deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Liability coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property by causing an accident. It protects you against other people’s claims, and 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 policy limits of 100/300/100 that translate to $100,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a total of $300,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $100,000 paid for damaged property. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.
Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, attorney fees, pain and suffering, legal defense fees and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but buy as high a limit as you can afford.
Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for expenses such as pain medications, rehabilitation expenses, dental work, nursing services and funeral costs. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. It covers 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
This protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Toyota Tundra.
Since a lot of drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are similar to your liability insurance amounts.
