If finding cheaper car insurance was fun, we'd make the time to do it regularly. But the reality is, you probably don't enjoy it and you think it costs too much. Cutting the check for each renewal on your Chevrolet Suburban 2500 might give you the same feeling.
Step One: Compare Apples-to-Apples Quotes
If it's been a few years since you shopped for car insurance, you might still think the only way to buy is from a local agent. Welcome to the 21st century!
You can now shop all the best car insurance companies and compare rates for a Chevrolet Suburban 2500 and you don't even have to visit each individual website!
Compare rates now by clicking the link below. In just a few minutes you'll have a good idea of what insurance will cost for your Chevrolet Suburban 2500.
Quote Tip! When doing car insurance quotes for your Suburban 2500, make sure you use the exact same values for coverages and deductibles. If you use different limits, you will not be able to fairly compare rates between different companies.
Step Two: Insider Tips for Finding Cheaper Suburban 2500 Insurance
There are many factors that actually determine what you will pay for insurance, and some are completely within your control.
- Good credit will get you lower car insurance rates. Evidence correlates good credit with low claims, so the better you maintain your credit level, the less risk you are to your company.
- You can save money on your physical damage coverage (comprehensive and collision) by increasing your deductibles. Higher deductibles mean you are willing to pay more before the insurance company covers a claim.
- The SUV class of vehicles generally has higher insurance rates due to the higher chance that you'll drive in adverse weather conditions.
- Filing too many claims with your company can end up either costing you more for insurance or having your policy cancelled. Insurance companies don't like paying any more than you do, but they have the option of whether to keep you as a policyholder or not.
- Members of many professional organizations can receive discounts on car insurance, and if you're a senior citizen, that could earn you an additional discount.
- Speeding and other minor violations can impact your car insurance rates for up to three years. The increased cost can easily exceed the fine and court costs for the original ticket.
- Having recently completed a class in driver's safety could earn you a discount of 5% to 10%. Check with your insurance company to see if they offer that credit.
- Gaps in insurance coverage will cause problems for your insurance rates. Don't let your policy expire without having new coverage in place.
- Equipping your Chevrolet with available safety features such as air bags and passive restraints allows you to take advantage of additional discounts.
- If your Suburban 2500 ranks on the list of vehicles that are frequently stolen, that can result in a higher rating class and a more expensive rate.
- The easiest way to INCREASE your car insurance rates is to add a teenage driver to your policy. There aren't many ways to prevent a rate increase, but if you can rate them on an older vehicle, it can help.
- Bundling your auto and home insurance with the same company can often get you a discount, and just being a homeowner in itself will get you a lower rate.
Step Three: Finalize your Policy Details
Now that you hopefully have several rates to compare and have made any changes needed to your individual coverages, you can choose the best company to insure your Suburban 2500 with.
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 don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Chevrolet off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. If your current policy has any vehicle with full coverage (comprehensive and collision), then your new Suburban 2500 will have that coverage extended to it. If you only have liability coverage on your policy, then you have no physical damage coverage on your new purchase.
Once you have purchased your policy, print out the insurance card that must go in your vehicle. This card fulfills the state law requiring you to prove financial responsibility. If an SR-22 is required due to a reckless driving conviction, DUI or conviction of driving without insurance, make sure your new company is aware of that. Not filing a court-ordered SR-22 can result in suspension of your driver's license.
