Three Step Guide to Cheaper Maserati Quattroporte Insurance
If finding the lowest rate on car insurance was easy, most people would have no trouble paying less. But unfortunately, it's difficult for a lot of people and we always seem to pay more than we should. Insuring your Maserati Quattroporte is probably no exception.
Step One: Compare Online Rate Quotes
If you haven't shopped for car insurance for awhile you might remember the days when the only option was to visit a local insurance agent. Welcome to the 21st century!
Getting online rate quotes for a Maserati Quattroporte from all the major insurance companies is very easy and only requires you to enter your information once.
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.
Apples-to-Apples! When doing comparison quotes for your Quattroporte, it's very important that you use the same liability limits and physical damage deductibles on each quote. Otherwise you will not be able to accurately determine which company has the lowest rates.
Step Two: How to Save on Quattroporte Insurance
How much impact insuring your Maserati has on your wallet is controlled by many different factors. Here are some ways to reduce the negatives and improve the positives.
- The Maserati Quattroporte is a high performance vehicle. Insurance rates are higher on cars that offer larger engines, more horsepower or increased risk of accident or rollover.
- 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.
- The Quattroporte would be considered a luxury vehicle, and repair costs are generally higher for more expensive vehicles. This increased cost is passed on to you through a higher insurance cost.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 have a speeding ticket or other moving violation, you could be charged more for insurance. If you get a ticket, find out if your county or state offers a defensive driving course that will void the ticket upon completion.
- Consider taking a defensive driving course. You can often make up the cost of the course in as little as a single policy renewal.
- Gaps in insurance coverage will cause problems for your insurance rates. Don't let your policy expire without having new coverage in place.
- Most Maserati vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Vehicle thefts drive up the cost of everyone's insurance, but if your Quattroporte is on the list of the most frequently stolen cars, you might be paying just a little extra.
- Teenage drivers can be very expensive to insure on newer vehicles will full coverage. You may be better off purchasing an older vehicle for your teenager and only insure it for liability.
- If you rent rather than own a home, you may be paying more for car insurance. Homeowners often get lower rates.
Step Three: Choose a Company and Bind Coverage
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.
The key thing to keep in mind when buying a new policy is you do not want your old policy to lapse. Make sure the effective date of the new policy is on or before the expiration date of your current policy.
If you don't currently have a car insurance policy, make sure you have coverage in force before driving your Maserati off the lot. But if you already have a policy, you will have coverage extended to your new car from your existing policy. Coverage that extends from an existing policy is only as good as your current coverage. So if you don't carry full coverage on any vehicles, you won't have it on your new Quattroporte.
The proof-of-insurance card that is required by state law to be carried in your vehicle can be printed out upon completion of your car insurance policy. If you have received a DUI, reckless driving citation or caused an accident without insurance, you may be required to file an SR-22 with your state DMV. Make sure your new company is aware of the SR-22 filing requirement.
