Verify you’re getting all your discounts

Companies don’t always publicize all their discounts very well, so here is a list some of the best known and also the lesser-known ways to save on insurance. If you don’t get every credit you qualify for, you’re paying more than you need to.

  • Multiple Vehicles – Insuring multiple vehicles on one policy can get a discount on all vehicles.
  • New Car Discount – Adding a new car to your policy can be considerably cheaper due to better safety requirements for new cars.
  • Clubs and Organizations – Being a member of a qualifying organization is a good way to get lower rates when shopping for insurance for Commander coverage.

  • Safe Drivers – Drivers who avoid accidents may receive a discount up to 45% less for Commander coverage than drivers with accident claims.

Car insurance companies that may offer these money-saving discounts include:

Double check with all companies you are considering how you can save money. All car insurance discounts might not apply in your state.

When should I talk to an agent?

When choosing proper insurance coverage for your vehicles, there really is no one size fits all plan. Everyone’s situation is a little different.

These are some specific questions can aid in determining whether you would benefit from an agent’s advice.

  • When does my teenage driver need to be added to my policy?
  • Is borrowed equipment or tools covered if stolen or damaged?
  • Do I need roadside assistance coverage?
  • Are there companies who specialize in insuring high-risk drivers?
  • Are split liability limits better than a combined single limit?
  • How high should my uninsured/underinsured coverage be in my state?
  • Where can I find DUI or SR-22 insurance?
  • Can I make deliveries for my home business?
  • Should I carry comprehensive and collision coverage?

If you’re not sure about those questions, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, complete this form. It only takes a few minutes and can help protect your family.

Can you really save $445 a year?

Consumers can’t ignore all the ads for cheaper car insurance by companies like Progressive, Allstate and Geico. They all seem to make an identical promise that you’ll save big if you switch to them.

How does each company make almost identical claims? It’s all in the numbers.

Different companies are able to cherry pick for the right customer that is profitable for them. For example, a driver they prefer might be between the ages of 40 and 55, a clean driving record, and has great credit. Any driver who matches those parameters is entitled to the best price and is almost guaranteed to save when they switch companies.

Drivers who do not match this ideal profile will be quoted higher prices which leads to business not being written. Company advertisements say “drivers who switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save money. That’s the way companies can advertise the way they do. This emphasizes why drivers should get as many quotes as possible. It’s impossible to know which company will provide you with the cheapest Jeep Commander insurance rates.

Car insurance coverage information

Understanding the coverages of a insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording.

Insurance for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance pay for short-term medical expenses such as pain medications, nursing services, X-ray expenses, rehabilitation expenses and hospital visits. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers you and your occupants as well as any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like theft, hitting a bird, vandalism and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This coverage provides protection when the “other guys” are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family and damage to your 2008 Jeep Commander.

Since many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked.

Collision insurance

Collision coverage covers damage to your Commander resulting from a collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision can pay for things like driving through your garage door, damaging your car on a curb, hitting a parking meter and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible to save money on collision insurance.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property. Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, $50,000 for the entire accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.

Liability insurance covers things like medical services, pain and suffering, loss of income, funeral expenses and legal defense fees. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

Be a smart shopper

We just showed you many ways to lower your 2008 Jeep Commander insurance rates. The key concept to understand is the more times you quote, the better likelihood of reducing your rate. Drivers may discover the best prices are with the least-expected company.

When trying to cut insurance costs, never skimp on coverage in order to save money. Too many times, drivers have reduced comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret that they should have had better coverage. Your aim should be to purchase a proper amount of coverage at an affordable rate.

Drivers switch companies for many reasons like an unsatisfactory settlement offer, policy non-renewal, denial of a claim or even not issuing a premium refund. Regardless of your reason, switching insurance companies is not as hard as you think.
