How to Find Cheaper Nissan 350Z Insurance
If buying auto insurance was as easy as it sounds on TV commercials, we'd have no problem getting the lowest rates. But in reality, the cost for insurance always seems too high and most people would prefer to get a root canal. You might feel the same pain when having to pay the bill on your Nissan 350Z.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rate Quotes
Up until about ten years ago, the only way to shop for car insurance was in the office of a local insurance agent where you'd get a hard sell into a policy. Times have changed!
All the major car insurance companies sell insurance for a Nissan 350Z and you can compare their rates by entering your information only one time.
To find affordable coverage for your Nissan 350Z, the first step is to click the link below and complete the short form.
Quote Tip! In order to accurately compare rates for your 350Z, it's critical that you use the same limits and deductibles for liability and physical damage coverages like comprehensive and collision. If you use different limits, you will not be able to accurately compare rates between carriers.
Step Two: Top Ways to Get Lower 350Z Insurance
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 350Z that will also lower the rate you pay irregardless of which company you choose.
- Cheap insurance rates and high performance don't usually mix. If low rates are your goal, the Nissan 350Z is probably not the best vehicle due to it's above average performance.
- 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.
- Consider raising your comprehensive and collision deductibles if you carry full coverage. By accepting more risk yourself, your car insurance company will cut you a break on your physical damage premiums.
- People like sports cars like the 350Z for many reasons, but one of them is not a low cost to insure. Sporty vehicles generally have higher performance and with that comes higher risk for an accident.
- Claims that aren't much more than your deductible are better off just being paid out of pocket. If you get into a habit of filing smaller claims, you will pay for it in higher rates.
- Being a senior citizen can qualify you for a small discount on your insurance rates. Older drivers are generally more cautious so they get a lower rate.
- Speeding not only costs you a fine, a single ticket will raise your car insurance rates for up to three years. Slow down and be a safe driver and you'll pay lower 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.
- Allowing your insurance to lapse for any length of time will increase the cost of a new policy. Always keep coverage in force.
- Safety features such as antilock brakes, traction control and air bag systems all help reduce the cost of car insurance by keeping the passengers safer.
- 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.
- Teen drivers are expensive to insure and the only way to lower your rates is to rate them on an older vehicle with basic liability coverage.
- Most insurance companies will give you a discount on your car insurance if you also own a home. Some go even farther and give you discounts if you package your homeowners and auto insurance with them.
Step Three: Choose the Right Company for You
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.
Car insurance policies don't have to be cancelled at the renewal date, but just be sure the new policy starts the same day you cancel your old policy. This avoids any gaps in coverage between policies.
If this is a new policy with only the Nissan on it, be sure to have coverage before leaving the dealership or car lot. If you're adding it to an existing policy, you have anywhere from 15 to 30 days depending on the company. When driving off the lot, you may have coverage that extends from your current policy. But it will only be equal to the most coverage you have on any vehicle. So if you only carry liability coverage, you won't be covered for full coverage until you specify it on your policy.
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. High risk drivers may be required to submit an SR-22 with their state DMV's. If you have been convicted of reckless driving, DUI or had an uninsured accident, you may qualify. Make sure your new policy reflects the need for the SR-22 filing.
