Five Minutes to Cheaper Kia Borrego Insurance
If we enjoyed shopping for car insurance, we'd do it more often. But in reality, the cost for insurance always seems too high and most people would prefer to get a root canal. Finding affordable insurance for your Kia Borrego is probably the same story.
Step One: Get Insurance Quotes
Years ago, your local insurance agent was the only way to quote a buy a car insurance policy. Thanks to the internet, insurance shopping is a whole lot easier!
All the major car insurance companies sell insurance for a Kia Borrego and you can compare their rates by entering your information only one time.
To compare rates now, have your current policy handy (if you have one) and click the link below. Complete the short form and move on to step two.
Use the Same Coverages! It's really important that when doing multiple quotes for your Borrego 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: Top Ways to Get Lower Borrego Insurance
After completing step one and having some rates to compare, you can now focus on policy and lifestyle modifications that will lower your Borrego insurance rates.
- 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.
- 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.
- SUV's are more complex in design than your average passenger sedan, so expect to pay a little more for insurance.
- Youthful or teen drivers that are rated on any vehicle will cost more. The inexperience and tendancy to enjoy going fast is a recipe for an accident.
- Try to maintain a claim-free discount on your car insurance policy. Obviously you can't prevent large claims, but if they are smaller and you can afford to pay them out-of-pocket, do so.
- If you have a high credit score, you will be rewarded with lower insurance rates. Conversely, if your credit rating is on the low site, your rates will be higher.
- If you own a home, you may get a break on your car insurance. Home ownership demonstrates financial responsibility.
- 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.
- Newer car models are coming standard with advanced passenger safety systems, and these help reduce the risk of injury in an accident. Less injuries mean lower insurance rates.
- Most of us have received a ticket at one time or another. If you get a ticket for a minor violation, find out if there is a safe driving class you can take to keep the ticket off your driving record.
- 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.
- Auto theft is a big problem that costs us all money, but if your car is on the list of the most frequently stolen autos, you might be paying a little extra because of the temptation to thieves.
Step Three: Finalize your Car Insurance Policy
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.
An important thing to keep in mind when buying a new policy is you want the effective date of the new policy to be the exact same as the date you are cancelling your old policy.
If you already have a car insurance policy, then your Kia Borrego will be covered as soon as your purchase it. If this is your first vehicle, you will want to make sure you have coverage in place as soon as your purchase it. Comprehensive (or Other than Collision) and collision coverage will extend to your new Borrego 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.
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 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.
