Step-by-step Guide to Cheaper Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Insurance
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. Buying insurance on your Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG might leave 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. Thanks to the internet, insurance shopping is a whole lot easier!
Almost every car insurance company now offers online quotes, and you can actually get insurance quotes for a Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG without even visiting their websites!
To begin, click on the link below and complete the short form. It only takes a few minutes and it's helpful to have your current policy handy if you have one.
Insurance Quoting Tip! The only way to accurately compare rates bewteen different companies for your E55 AMG 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: How to Save on E55 AMG Insurance
Once you have quotes in hand, you can then consider some of the other techniques for lowering your E55 AMG insurance rates.
- You can definitely expect to pay a little more for insurance due to the performance level of your Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG. Vehicles with less power and speed tend to cost less to insure.
- Insurance companies often give discounts to senior citizens and professional organizations, so if you're one of those, check to see if you qualify.
- 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.
- Consider using higher deductibles for physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. Higher deductibles save money since you're willing to pay more out-of-pocket at claim time.
- If you're a young driver, you will pay more to insure a E55 AMG. There isn't anything you can do about your age, but rates will drop as you mature.
- A lead foot will result in higher insurance rates. Slow down, don't get tickets and you'll pay less.
- If your vehicle comes with safety features such as electronic stability control, head restraints, all-wheel drive or air bags, these all help keep insurance costs down by helping reduce accident injuries.
- Filing too many claims with your company can end up either costing you more for insurance or having your policy cancelled. Insurance companies don't like paying any more than you do, but they have the option of whether to keep you as a policyholder or not.
- Vehicle thefts drive up the cost of everyone's insurance, but if your E55 AMG is on the list of the most frequently stolen cars, you might be paying just a little extra.
- 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.
- Consider taking a defensive driving course. You can often make up the cost of the course in as little as a single policy renewal.
- When buying a new policy, you do not want a gap in coverage. This lapse is viewed by insurance companies as a high risk, and you will pay more for your next policy.
- Being a homeowner can often get you a little discount on your auto insurance. Insuring you home with the same company as your autos can often get you even deeper discounts.
Step Three: Make an Informed Buying Decision
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.
On your new policy, double check that the effective date is the same as the date you are cancelling your old policy. This avoids any lapse in coverage which can cause an increase in your rates.
If you already have a car insurance policy, then your Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG 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. 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 E55 AMG at risk as soon as you drive away.
Your insurance company will provide you with proof-of-insurance forms to keep in your vehicle. It's required by state law to carry at least the state minimum liability limits. 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.
