How to Insure your Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG on the Cheap
If buying auto insurance was as easy as it sounds on TV commercials, we'd have no problem getting the lowest rates. But it's actually not a real enjoyable process for the majority of people and we always seem to end up paying too much. Finding affordable coverage for your Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG probably is no different.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rate Quotes
The old way of buying car insurance was to make multiple trips to various local agents and get strong armed into a policy that didn't necessarily fit you. Now that we have the internet, shopping for car insurance online is a snap!
Comparing apples-to-apples price quotes for your Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG is made easy by only requiring one form to be completed. This will shop your coverage with multiple companies and allow you to easily compare rates.
Simply click the link below to enter your information. Once complete, you can compare the returned rates and make a decision on which policy to purchase.
Read this (it's important)! When doing any car insurance quote to compare rates to either your existing policy or to other quotes, it's important to use identical coverages on all quotes. Otherwise you will not be able to accurately determine which company has the lowest rate for your SL63 AMG.
Step Two: Best Ways to Lower your SL63 AMG Insurance Cost
If you have completed step one above (if not, please complete that step first), then you are now ready to learn some ways to insure your SL63 AMG that will also lower the rate you pay irregardless of which company you choose.
- Some people just like the looks of a higher performance vehicle like the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, but even if you don't use the extra power it's going to cost you more when your insurance bill arrives.
- You can check your credit score for free once a year, and it's a good idea to address any problems you find. Better credit results in better insurance rates.
- SL63 AMG replacement parts are more expensive due to the quality of the parts, so you can expect your physical damage rates to be higher to reflect the higher cost of repair.
- A single speeding ticket can cost you several hundreds of dollars over the next three years thanks to increased car insurance rates. Slow down and drive safely.
- If a quick quarter mile is your goal, the SL63 AMG will answer the call. But if cheap insurance rates are your goal, then you might want to consider trading down to a lower performance vehicle.
- Owning a home takes financial responsibility, and car insurance companies will often give you a break just for being a homeowner.
- Teen drivers have a tendancy to learn the hard way when driving, and that means having a few fender-benders. Rating them on a high profile newer vehicle can be very expensive so you might consider buying an older model vehicle for them to drive and only insure it with liability coverage.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- The less chance of injury to passengers in an accident means lower insurance rates. Vehicles with safety features like side-impact airbags, head injury protection, antilock bracks and traction control generally will be cheaper to insure.
- Car insurance disounts for senior citizens are often offered by companies as well as discounts for belonging to a professional organization.
- If your SL63 AMG ranks on the list of vehicles that are frequently stolen, that can result in a higher rating class and a more expensive rate.
- Comprehensive and collision coverages make up the majority of your car insurance bill. If you raise your deductibles, you can will see significant savings with every policy renewal.
Step Three: Buy the Policy That's Right for You
Purchasing an insurance policy is more than just clicking a button. You need to have funds available to make payment and you need to be sure that the coverages are adequate for your personal situation.
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.
Coverage will extend from your current policy if you're buying a Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, 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. Your existing car insurance policy will give you some coverage if you buy a new or used SL63 AMG, but unless you are already paying for full coverage, you won't have it until you add the vehicle to your policy.
Once you finish buying your new policy, you will need to print out the proof-of-insurance card that is provided by your new company. This card is proof that you meet the state's minimum liability limits and is required to be kept in your vehicle. Depending on your state's statutes, you may be required to file an SR-22 form if you've been convicted of an uninsured accident, DUI or license suspension. Make sure your new company is aware of this requirement and files it promptly.
