Find More Affordable Insurance for your Lincoln Mark VII
If buying car insurance was fun, we'd do it as a recreational sport. But unfortunately, it's difficult for a lot of people and we always seem to pay more than we should. Finding good insurance for your Lincoln Mark VII probably leaves you feeling the same way.
Step One: Insurance Quotes
Up until just recently, the only option you had for shopping for insurance was getting a high pressure sales pitch in the office of your local insurance agent. Now that we have the internet, shopping for car insurance online is a snap!
You can now shop all the best car insurance companies and compare rates for a Lincoln Mark VII and you don't even have to visit each individual website!
Take the first step by clicking the link below. By answering a few questions you'll be able to compare rates quickly and easily.
Quote Tip! When doing car insurance quotes for your Mark VII, 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: How to Save on Mark VII Insurance
Once you have quotes in hand, you can then consider some of the other techniques for lowering your Mark VII insurance rates.
- The time it takes to complete a driver's safety training course could be time well spent. It could save you up to 10% off your car insurance rates.
- Repair shops have more expenses when repairing damage on luxury vehicles, so they will charge your insurance company more to make the repairs. This will be evident in your insurance rates even if you don't have a claim.
- 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.
- If you're a young driver, you will pay more to insure a Mark VII. There isn't anything you can do about your age, but rates will drop as you mature.
- Filing small claims will get you into hot water with your insurance company. Frequent filers will often find themselves either paying higher rates or non-renewed at renewal time.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The advancement of car safety features such as traction control, stability control, front and side-impact air bags and all-wheel drive all help keep insurance costs down.
- A lead foot will result in higher insurance rates. Slow down, don't get tickets and you'll pay less.
- Having any gaps in coverage (known as a lapse) is bad in the eyes of any insurance company. Make sure you keep coverage in force at all times by synchronizing the expiration and effective dates of your policies.
- Thieves tend to steal certain makes and models of vehicles more than others, and if your car is on that list, expect to pay higher insurance rates because of it.
Step Three: Buy the Best 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.
Make sure to avoid any lapse in coverage by setting the new policy's effective date to be the same date you cancel your old policy. Otherwise you could be driving without any coverage.
Coverage will extend from your current policy if you're buying a Lincoln Mark VII, but if you don't have a policy, you will need to make sure you have coverage in place before you drive it off the dealership lot. Anytime you buy a vehicle, you want to make sure coverage is in place before driving off the lot. If you have a policy now, you will have at least liability coverage. But if you don't insure any vehicles with full coverage, then you will put your new Mark VII at risk as soon as you drive away.
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. SR-22 filings are for high risk drivers and ensure that you have met your state's financial responsibility requirements. If you have DUI, DWI or uninsured accident convictions, you may have to file an SR-22 with your state DMV.
