Insurance Quoting Tip! The only way to accurately compare rates bewteen different companies for your Testarossa is to use identical coverage limits on all the quotes. If you use different liability limits and/or deductibles, you won't have an apples-to-apples rate comparison.
Step Two: Top Ways to Get Lower Testarossa Insurance
What you actually pay to insure your Ferrari is determined by many factors, some of which you have no control over.
- Cheap insurance rates and high performance don't usually mix. If low rates are your goal, the Ferrari Testarossa is probably not the best vehicle due to it's above average performance.
- 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.
- Owning a luxury vehicle like your Testarossa means you'll pay a little more for insurance due to the higher cost of repair parts.
- How's your credit score? If it's good you will pay a lower rate than your poor credit counterparts. Work on improving weak credit and you will eventually see your car insurance bill go down.
- The extra acceleration and sheer fun of the Testarossa will be a trade off for lower insurance rates. If you don't need the sportiness of the vehicle, you'll pay less to insure a lower profile vehicle.
- 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.
- Successfully completing a driver's training class can help lower your rates if your insurance company offers that discount.
- Speeding not only costs you a fine, a single ticket will raise your car insurance rates for up to three years. Slow down and be a safe driver and you'll pay lower rates.
- If you have a period where you don't have any insurance coverage, that's called a lapse. The longer the lapse, the more you'll pay to reinstate coverage.
- Most Ferrari vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- 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.
- Smaller claims that hardly exceed your deductible are better off not being filed with your insurance company. Policyholders with no claims enjoy lower rates than those who frequently file claims.
- 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.
- If you car makes the top ten list of most stolen cars, you might be paying a little extra to insure it.
Step Three: Choose the Right Company for You
Buying a new car insurance policy is just a matter of finalizing your application form and submitting it with your down payment. Once payment has been accepted, coverage is bound the effective date shown on your application.
Car insurance policies don't have to be cancelled at the renewal date, but just be sure the new policy starts the same day you cancel your old policy. This avoids any gaps in coverage between policies.
If this is a new policy with only the Ferrari on it, be sure to have coverage before leaving the dealership or car lot. If you're adding it to an existing policy, you have anywhere from 15 to 30 days depending on the company. If your current policy has any vehicle with full coverage (comprehensive and collision), then your new Testarossa 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.
After completing your policy purchase, you can print out the proof-of-insurance card to place in your car. Always keep the current card available in case requested by law enforcement or if you are in an accident. 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.
