Five Minutes to Cheaper Jeep Comanche Pickup Insurance
If buying car insurance was fun, we'd do it as a recreational sport. But most likely we pay more than we want to and don't really enjoy the buying process. Finding affordable coverage for your Jeep Comanche Pickup probably is no different.

Use the Same Coverages! It's really important that when doing multiple quotes for your Comanche Pickup that you use identical coverages for liability, comprehensive and collision. If you use different values, it's impossible to determine which company has the lower rates.
Step Two: How to Lower your Comanche Pickup Insurance Premium
Once you have quotes in hand, you can then consider some of the other techniques for lowering your Comanche Pickup insurance rates.
- Insurance companies pay attention to which vehicles are stolen the most, so if your car is frequently targeted by thieves, chances are good you will pay more for insurance if you live in certain parts of the country.
- With age comes cheaper rates! If you're a senior citizen, many car insurance companies will give you a discount. Also, if you belong to a professional organization, check to see if your company gives discounts to members.
- If your Jeep 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.
- If your teen driver has completed a driver's education class in school, check to see if your insurance company offers any discounts for this.
- A claim-free discount can help keep your rates down, so don't file claims that are only marginally more than your deductible. You're better off keeping the 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.
- If you have any teenage drivers in your household, expect to fork out quite a bit more for insurance. Rating them on a low profile vehicle with liability only coverage is the best way to save money.
- Owning a home takes financial responsibility, and car insurance companies will often give you a break just for being a homeowner.
- 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.
- 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.
- If you're willing to shoulder more of the cost at claim time, consider raising your comprehensive and collision deductibles. This can easily cut 30% or more from your policy premium.
Step Three: Buy the Policy That's Right for You
Choosing a new car insurance company is not easy. But hopefully you have a handful of quotes for your Comanche Pickup that will give you a good idea of how much it will cost, as well as some idea of any coverage changes you may want to make.
If you're cancelling an old policy, make sure the new coverage starts the same day your old policy ends. This avoids any penalty for having a lapse in coverage which can cost you more.
If you don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Jeep off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. Comprehensive (or Other than Collision) and collision coverage will extend to your new Comanche Pickup if you current have a vehicle insured with those coverages. If you aren't insured or only carry basic liability coverage, then you will be inadequately insured until you add the vehicle to your policy with full coverage.
Be sure to replace any old proof-of-insurance cards in your car. You must always have the current card in your vehicle as required by state law. If you're considered a high-risk driver, having been convicted of a DUI, DWI, reckless driving or had your license suspended, you may need to file a SR-22. Be sure your new company files this form with your state DMV. Failure to do so can result in losing your right to drive.
