View 2009 HUMMER H3 Insurance Rates

Want cheaper insurance rates for your HUMMER H3? I can’t think of a single person who enjoys paying for insurance, in particular when the price is too high. Many insurers compete for your hard-earned dollar, and it can be difficult to compare rates to find the lowest rate possible.

It’s a great practice to get comparison quotes yearly due to the fact that insurance rates are rarely the same from one policy term to another. Despite the fact that you may have had the best rates on H3 coverage last year there is a good chance you can find better rates now. Starting right now, forget anything you know (or think you know) about insurance because you’re about to learn how to quote online to save on insurance.

If you are insured now or need new coverage, you can use these techniques to find better prices while maintaining coverages. Buying car insurance is not that difficult. Vehicle owners only need to know the tricks to compare rates online.

Where Can I Get Cheap Car Insurance?

Reducing your 2009 HUMMER H3 insurance rates is not rocket science. You just have to spend a little time to get quotes online from several insurance companies. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

  1. The single most time-saving way to find the lowest comparison rates would be an industry-wide quote request form (click to open form in new window). This form eliminates the need for separate quotes for each company you want a rate for. Filling out one form will get you price quotes direct from many companies.
  2. A different way to shop for car insurance online consists of visiting each company website and request a quote. For example, we’ll pretend you want to compare Auto-Owners, State Farm and Geico. To get rate quotes you would need to spend time on each company’s site and enter your policy data, which is why the first method is quicker.

  3. The most time-consuming way to compare rates is driving to local insurance agencies. The internet eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you require the professional advice only provided by licensed agents. However, consumers can price shop your coverage online and still use a local agent and you’ll learn how to do that later.

Which method you use is up to you, but be sure to compare the exact same coverage information for each price quote. If your comparisons have unequal deductibles or liability limits you will not be able to decipher which rate is best.

Don’t overlook these discounts

Companies that sell car insurance do not list every available discount very clearly, so here is a list some of the best known and the harder-to-find discounts you could be receiving. If you’re not getting every credit available, you are paying more than you should be.

  • Accident Free – Drivers who don’t have accidents pay much less when compared to drivers who are more careless.
  • Federal Government Employee – Being employed by or retired from a federal job may qualify you for a discount on H3 coverage with select insurance companies.
  • Life Insurance – Select insurance companies reward you with lower rates if you buy life insurance.
  • Pay Now and Pay Less – If you pay your bill all at once instead of monthly or quarterly installments you could save 5% or more.
  • Seat Belt Usage – Drivers who require all occupants to buckle their seat belts can save up to 15% off your medical payments premium.
  • Drive Less and Save – Low mileage vehicles could qualify for a substantially lower rate.
  • Senior Citizens – If you qualify as a senior citizen, you may be able to get better car insurance rates on H3 coverage.
  • Passive Restraint Discount – Vehicles equipped with air bags or automatic seat belts can receive discounts of more than 20%.
  • Drivers Ed for Students – Require your teen driver to complete a driver education course if it’s offered in school.
  • Multiple Cars – Buying coverage for all your vehicles on the same car insurance policy could earn a price break for each car.

A little note about advertised discounts, most of the big mark downs will not be given to all coverage premiums. Some only apply to individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. So even though they make it sound like adding up those discounts means a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way.

Before buying, ask each insurance company which discounts they offer. All car insurance discounts might not be offered in your area.

Car insurance coverage specifics

Learning about specific coverages of car insurance can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be difficult to understand and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. These are the usual coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision – Comprehensive insurance coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from flooding, falling objects and hitting a bird. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Auto liability – Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to a person or their property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see limits of 25/50/25 which means $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $25,000.

Liability coverage protects against things like repair bills for other people’s vehicles, medical expenses, attorney fees and medical services. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as much as you can afford.

UM/UIM Coverage – Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when other motorists either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important.

Collision coverages – Collision insurance pays for damage to your H3 caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for things like rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.

Medical costs insurance – Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for short-term medical expenses for rehabilitation expenses, hospital visits and prosthetic devices. They can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
