How to Find Affordable Insurance for your Chevrolet SSR
If searching for lower car insurance rates was a good time, we'd have no problem finding the best rate. But unfortunately, it's difficult for a lot of people and we always seem to pay more than we should. You probably feel the same way when trying to find cheaper coverage for your Chevrolet SSR.
Step One: Compare Rates from Multiple Companies
If you haven't shopped for car insurance for awhile you might remember the days when the only option was to visit a local insurance agent. But you can now comparison shop and buy direct online!
Getting online rate quotes for a Chevrolet SSR from all the major insurance companies is very easy and only requires you to enter your information once.
To start saving, have your current policy handy and click the link below. Our short form makes it easy to enter your information and compare rates.
Quote Tip! In order to accurately compare rates for your SSR, it's critical that you use the same limits and deductibles for liability and physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. If you use different limits, you will not be able to accurately compare rates between carriers.
Step Two: How to Save on SSR Insurance
What you actually pay to insure your Chevrolet is determined by many factors, some of which you have no control over.
- If you're not sure what your credit rating is, check it now. Car insurance companies use your credit score to determine the rates you pay, so the better your credit, the less you will pay.
- If you carry full coverage on your vehicle, you can slash your rates by increasing your comprehensive and collision deductibles. You'll pay more out-of-pocket but you will save with every renewal.
- People like sports cars like the SSR for many reasons, but one of them is not a low cost to insure. Sporty vehicles generally have higher performance and with that comes higher risk for an accident.
- Small claims that may only exceed your physical damage deductibles by a small amount are better off not being submitted to your company. Just pay the extra hundred dollars or two and keep a claim-free discount on your policy.
- Membership has it's privleges. If you're a member of a professional organization, check to see if your company offers discounts to its members. It can add up to 5% or more.
- Speeding tickets and other violations can negatively impact your insurance rates for up to three years. Get too many tickets and you'll be shopping for a new car insurance company.
- If you've recently completed a driver's training or safety course, tell your insurance company. You may qualify for a 5-10% discount.
- 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.
- Most Chevrolet vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Vehicle thefts drive up the cost of everyone's insurance, but if your SSR is on the list of the most frequently stolen cars, you might be paying just a little extra.
- If your insurance company allows driver-specific car rating, you can save money by rating any teenage drivers on low profile vehicles with either no physical damage coverage or very high deductibles.
- Most insurance companies will give you a discount on your car insurance if you also own a home. Some go even farther and give you discounts if you package your homeowners and auto insurance with them.
Step Three: Purchase a New Policy
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.
You can cancel a policy at any time, but just remember to make the effective date of the replacement policy the exact same as the date you cancel your old policy. You do not want any gaps in coverage between policies.
Before you drive your Chevrolet SSR home, make sure you have a current car insurance policy in force. Coverage will extend to the new purchase from your policy, but if you don't have a policy then you have no protection. Coverage that extends from an existing policy is only as good as your current coverage. So if you don't carry full coverage on any vehicles, you won't have it on your new SSR.
The proof-of-insurance card that is required by state law to be carried in your vehicle can be printed out upon completion of your car insurance policy. If you have received a DUI, reckless driving citation or caused an accident without insurance, you may be required to file an SR-22 with your state DMV. Make sure your new company is aware of the SR-22 filing requirement.
