Insurance quote for GMC Sierra 2500HD in ArlingtonIf you want to save money, the best way to get more affordable auto insurance rates is to compare quotes annually from providers that insure vehicles in Arlington. Rate comparisons can be done by following these guidelines.

Step 1: Try to understand how insurance works and the steps you can take to prevent high rates. Many rating criteria that increase rates like getting speeding tickets and a lousy credit rating can be controlled by being financially responsible and driving safely. Keep reading for more ideas to prevent high rates and find overlooked discounts.

Step 2: Request rate estimates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only give prices from a single company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while agents who are independent can quote prices for a wide range of insurance providers.

Step 3: Compare the new rate quotes to your existing coverage to see if you can save by switching companies. If you find a lower rate quote, make sure there is no coverage gap between policies.

A good piece of advice is to use similar deductibles and liability limits on each quote and and to compare every company you can. Doing this helps ensure a fair price comparison and the best rate selection.

A study showed that a large majority of drivers kept their coverage with the same insurance company for a minimum of four years, and nearly the majority have never compared rates from other carriers. With the average premium in America being $1,847, drivers can cut their rates by $860 a year just by shopping around, but they assume it’s a waste of time to find cheap insurance rates.

Cost estimates assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-vehicle, claim-free, homeowner, and multi-policy. Premium costs do not factor in specific zip code location which can revise insurance rates significantly.

Based on the data above, we can derive that using a $100 deductible will cost you about $46 more each month or $552 for a full year than buying the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $900 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you go at least 20 months between claims, you would save more money by selecting a higher deductible.

How to decide to raise your deductibles

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $143
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $97
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $46
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 – $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $46
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 20 months

One big caveat is that increasing deductibles to lower your rates results in having to pay to pay more out-of-pocket at claim time. That will necessitate some extra savings in order to pay the higher deductible.

Impact of violations and accidents on rates

The illustration below demonstrates how traffic citations and fender-benders can affect GMC Sierra 2500HD car insurance costs for different age groups. The premium estimates are based on a married female driver, full physical damage coverage, $250 deductibles, and no policy discounts are applied.

Car insurance rates based on gender in Arlington

The illustration below shows the difference between GMC Sierra 2500HD car insurance rates for male and female drivers. The rates are based on no violations or accidents, comp and collision included, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no other discounts are factored in.

Rate comparison of full coverage and liability-only

The illustration below shows the comparison of GMC Sierra 2500HD annual premium costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The premiums are based on no claims or driving violations, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no policy discounts are applied.

Should you pay for full coverage?

There is no exact formula to eliminate physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of having full coverage is about 10% or more of the vehicle’s replacement cost less your deductible, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

For example, let’s assume your GMC Sierra 2500HD replacement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company will settle for is $7,000 after you pay the deductible. If it’s costing in excess of $700 annually for physical damage coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

There are some scenarios where eliminating full coverage is not a good idea. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to carry full coverage to protect the lienholder’s interest in the vehicle. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not consider dropping full coverage.

Arlington auto insurance discounts

Auto insurance is neither fun to buy or cheap, but there may be some discounts to help offset the cost. Certain discounts will be applied at the time you complete a quote, but a few must be asked for before they will apply. If they aren’t giving you every credit you deserve, you could be saving more on your auto insurance.Cheaper auto insurance with discounts

One thing to note about discounts is that many deductions do not apply to the entire cost. Some only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as liability, collision or medical payments. So even though they make it sound like you could get a free auto insurance policy, it just doesn’t work that way.

The diagram below shows the difference between GMC Sierra 2500HD auto insurance costs with and without discounts applied. The premiums assume a female driver, no accidents, no driving violations, Texas state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $250 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with homeowner, safe-driver, claim-free, multi-car, marriage, and multi-policy discounts applied.

A list of auto insurance companies and their offered discounts include:

Before buying, ask every prospective company which discounts they offer. Depending on the company, some discounts may not be available in every state.

Auto insurance does more than just repair your car

Despite the high cost, auto insurance may be mandatory for several reasons.

First, the majority of states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific minimum amounts of liability if you don’t want to risk a ticket. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if you have a lien on your vehicle, almost all lenders will make it mandatory that you have insurance to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the lender will be forced to insure your GMC for a lot more money and force you to pay the higher premium.

Third, insurance protects both your GMC Sierra 2500HD and your personal assets. It will also cover most medical and hospital costs that are the result of an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, will also pay to defend you if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If your GMC gets damaged, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of insuring your car greatly outweigh the cost, especially with large liability claims. The average driver in Texas is overpaying over $800 each year so smart consumers compare quotes once a year at a minimum to ensure rates are competitive.

Neighborhood Arlington auto insurance agents

A lot of people would prefer to talk to a local agent and that is just fine! Agents can help you build your policy and help in the event of a claim. The biggest benefit of comparing rates online is that you can obtain the lowest rates and also buy local. Supporting local insurance agents is still important in Arlington.

To make it easy to find an agent, after completing this form (opens in new window), your coverage information is emailed to local insurance agents who can give free rate quotes to get your business. You won’t need to contact any insurance agencies as quotes are delivered to you.

If you are wanting to find a reputable agency, it can be helpful to understand the different agency structures and how they work. Agencies in Arlington may be either independent agents or exclusive agents depending on their employer. Either one can insure your vehicles properly, but we need to point out how they are different since it can affect the type of agent you choose.

Independent Insurance Agents (or Brokers)

Agents of this type are not employed by one company and that gives them the ability to insure through many different insurance companies and find you cheaper rates. If they find a cheaper price, they can switch companies in-house and you stay with the same agent.

If you are trying to find cheaper rates, you should always include independent agents for maximum quote selection. They often place coverage with lesser-known insurance companies that can offer cheaper rates than bigger companies.

Below are Arlington independent insurance agencies that may be able to provide comparison quotes.

Exclusive Insurance Agents

Exclusive insurance agents are contracted to one company and some examples include Farmers Insurance, Allstate, or State Farm. These agents are not able to provide rate quotes from other companies so they really need to provide good service. Exclusive agents are well schooled on their company’s products which helps overcome the inability to quote other rates. Consumers frequently buy from exclusive agents partially due to the brand name rather than having low rates.

Shown below is a list of exclusive agencies in Arlington that are able to give rate quotes.
