A recent survey discovered that most auto insurance buyers have purchased from the same company for well over three years, and roughly 40% of drivers have never quoted auto insurance rates at all. With the average auto insurance premium being $1,578, Arizona drivers can save nearly $730 each year just by comparing rates, but most undervalue the amount of savings they would get if they swap their current policy for a cheaper one.

Discount Chevy Impala insuranceThe most effective way to find low-cost prices for auto insurance rates is to compare prices at least once a year from different companies who can sell car insurance in Scottsdale.

Step 1: Get a basic knowledge of how companies price auto insurance and the modifications you can make to keep rates in check. Many things that drive up the price like accidents, traffic tickets, and a not-so-good credit rating can be eliminated by making lifestyle changes or driving safer. Read the full article for additional ideas to keep prices down and get discounts that may be overlooked.

Step 2: Request rate estimates from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can only give prices from one company like GEICO and State Farm, while independent agents can give you price quotes from many different companies.

Step 3: Compare the new rates to your current policy to see if you can save by switching companies. If you find a better price and make a switch, ensure there is no coverage lapse between policies.

Step 4: Provide notification to your current company of your decision to cancel your current coverage and submit a signed application and payment for your new policy. As soon as you receive it, keep your new proof of insurance paperwork in your vehicle's glove compartment or console.

One key aspect when comparing rates is to try to compare identical limits and deductibles on every quote and and to compare as many different companies as possible. Doing this guarantees a fair price comparison and the most accurate and complete price analysis.

Insurance protects more than just your car

Even though it can be expensive, insuring your vehicle may be required and benefits you in several ways.

First, the majority of states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry a specific level of liability in order to get the vehicle licensed. In Arizona these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your Impala has a loan, most lenders will make it a condition of the loan that you carry insurance to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you default on your policy, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Chevy for a much higher rate and require you to reimburse them the higher price.

Third, insurance protects both your car and your personal assets. It will also pay for most medical and hospital costs for you, your passengers, and anyone else injured in an accident. Liability insurance also pays for attorney fees and expenses if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.

The benefits of buying insurance greatly outweigh the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. According to a recent study, the average American driver overpays as much as $865 each year so you should quote your policy with other companies at every renewal to help ensure money is not being wasted.

Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Arizona minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, claim-free, safe-driver, homeowner, and multi-vehicle. Table data does not factor in zip code location which can lower or raise rates noticeably.

Based on the above data, using a $250 deductible could cost the average driver approximately $22 more each month or $264 each year than choosing the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would have to pay $750 more to file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you tend to have at least 34 months between claims, you would come out ahead if you elect the higher deductible.

The illustration below demonstrates how deductible levels and can raise or lower Chevy Impala premium costs for each age group. The premiums assume a single male driver, comp and collision included, and no discounts are applied.

How violations and accidents impact rates

The example below illustrates how traffic citations and accident claims raise Chevy Impala premium costs for each different age group. The rate quotes are based on a single male driver, comp and collision included, $1,000 deductibles, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Cost difference between full coverage and liability

The illustration below shows the comparison of Chevy Impala yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Arizona. The data assumes no claims or violations, $500 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are factored in.

Deciding between full coverage and liability only

There is no written rule of when to drop physical damage insurance, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than around 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

For example, let's say your Chevy Impala claim settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would receive is $7,000 after you pay the deductible. If you are paying more than $700 a year for full coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

There are some circumstances where eliminating full coverage is not in your best interest. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should keep full coverage on your policy.
