Three Step Guide to Cheaper BMW 750i Insurance
If shopping your car insurance around was fun, we'd do it much more often. But unfortunately, it's difficult for a lot of people and we always seem to pay more than we should. Cutting the check for each renewal on your BMW 750i might give you the same feeling.
Step One: Insurance Rate Comparison Quotes
The old-fashioned method of shopping for car insurance included visiting several local insurance agents and being on the receiving end of a hard sell tactic. Not anymore!
You can compare insurance rates for a BMW 750i simply and quickly just by filling out one form. This allows you to quote the same coverages with multiple companies and pick the lowest rate.
To find affordable coverage for your BMW 750i, the first step is to click the link below and complete the short form.
Apples-to-Apples! When doing comparison quotes for your 750i, it's very important that you use the same liability limits and physical damage deductibles on each quote. Otherwise you will not be able to accurately determine which company has the lowest rates.
Step Two: How to Save on 750i Insurance
There are many contributing factors that determine what you pay to insure your BMW. You can help yourself (and your wallet) by paying attention to the following rate factors.
- If you need the extra performance that your BMW 750i gives you, then you'll have to pay extra to insure it. Higher performance cars tend to be more expensive to insure.
- Consider taking a defensive driving course. You can often make up the cost of the course in as little as a single policy renewal.
- The more a vehicles costs new, the more likely it is that repairs will cost more as well. Since the 750i is a luxury sedan vehicle insurance will cost a little more.
- Being a senior citizen can qualify you for a small discount on your insurance rates. Older drivers are generally more cautious so they get a lower rate.
- Car insurance rates for a teen driver on a BMW 750i will be expensive no matter what kind of coverage you have. But if you don't need comprehensive and collision, consider dropping those to save money.
- Filing small claims will get you into hot water with your insurance company. Frequent filers will often find themselves either paying higher rates or non-renewed at renewal time.
- Each year make a habit of checking your credit score. If you find problems that may be dragging down your credit rating, address them immediately. This will result in significant savings on car insurance.
- Renting a house or apartment rather than owning a home may keep you from paying the lowest rates on car insurance. Home ownership is viewed as being more financially responsible than renting.
- Consider using higher deductibles for physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. Higher deductibles save money since you're willing to pay more out-of-pocket at claim time.
- If your BMW is equipped with safety features such as airbags, anti-lock brakes or a security system, insurance companies will often give a minor discount for those.
- One of the easiest ways to keep your rates down is to drive safe. One speeding ticket can boost your rates for three years.
- Never allow one policy to expire without having a new policy effective the same date. This causes a lapse in coverage and if you don't have insurance for any length of time, your next policy will cost you more.
- Vehicle thefts drive up the cost of everyone's insurance, but if your 750i is on the list of the most frequently stolen cars, you might be paying just a little extra.
Step Three: Finalize your Policy Details
If you have found a good price by comparing quotes and also made informed decisions regarding policy limits, deductibles and other policy options that are available, you can now purchase the policy and bind coverage.
It's critical that your new policy starts the same day that your old policy ends. If you are cancelling mid-term, make sure there is no lapse in coverage before your new policy kicks in.
If you are adding a vehicle to an existing policy and not buying a new one, just make sure to get the vehicle added as soon as possible. Every insurance company offers a grace period to add new vehicles, so make sure you get the BMW added prior to the expiration of this grace period. The coverage extended to an add-on vehicle is only as good as the coverage on existing vehicles, so if none of your current insured vehicles have full coverage, your new 750i won't have it either. So in that case, it's important to call your agent or company directly from the dealership and have them bind coverage immediately.
At the end of buying your policy, you will be able to print out a new proof-of-insurance card to place in your vehicle. This card is required by law and must be produced if requested by law enforcement. If you are required to file an SR-22 with your state, your new insurance company will take care of that for you. If you cancel your coverage for any reason, you risk the loss of your driver's license.
