Easy Guide to Cheaper Saleen S7 Insurance Rates
If comparing car insurance was easy, most of us would do it more often. But we always seem to pay too much for coverage and most people would rather go to the dentist. Finding affordable insurance for your Saleen S7 is probably the same story.
Step One: Compare Multiple Rates
Years ago, your local insurance agent was the only way to quote a buy a car insurance policy. Not anymore!
All the major car insurance companies sell insurance for a Saleen S7 and you can compare their rates by entering your information only one time.
Take the first step by clicking the link below. By answering a few questions you'll be able to compare rates quickly and easily.
Insurance Quoting Tip! The only way to accurately compare rates bewteen different companies for your S7 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: Techniques to Lower your S7 Insurance Rates
After completing step one above, you can now learn some of the other ways to slash your S7 insurance costs.
- Vehicles that are considered high performance will have a higher insurance price tag that your average family sedan. The Saleen S7 is no exception.
- How is your credit rating? The better credit you have, the less insurance will cost for your S7. If you have bad credit, work on improving your credit score and repair past credit problems.
- The cost to repair luxury vehicles is generally more than the cost to repair your average domestic family sedan. Everything from paint to bumpers to windshields costs more for the S7 so expect to pay more for insurance.
- Most of us have received a ticket at one time or another. If you get a ticket for a minor violation, find out if there is a safe driving class you can take to keep the ticket off your driving record.
- The extra acceleration and sheer fun of the S7 will be a trade off for lower insurance rates. If you don't need the sportiness of the vehicle, you'll pay less to insure a lower profile vehicle.
- 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.
- The easiest way to INCREASE your car insurance rates is to add a teenage driver to your policy. There aren't many ways to prevent a rate increase, but if you can rate them on an older vehicle, it can help.
- Allowing your insurance to lapse for any length of time will increase the cost of a new policy. Always keep coverage in force.
- 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.
- Consider taking a defensive driving course. You can often make up the cost of the course in as little as a single policy renewal.
- Newer car models are coming standard with advanced passenger safety systems, and these help reduce the risk of injury in an accident. Less injuries mean lower insurance rates.
- Members of many professional organizations can receive discounts on car insurance, and if you're a senior citizen, that could earn you an additional discount.
- Auto theft is a big problem that costs us all money, but if your car is on the list of the most frequently stolen autos, you might be paying a little extra because of the temptation to thieves.
- Before a comprehensive or collision claim is paid by your company, you have to pay a deductible first. The more you're willing to pay, the lower your rates will be. Consider raising your deductibles to $500 or even $1,000.
Step Three: Finalize your Car Insurance Policy
Car insurance is pretty easy to buy online, but you do need to be aware that it is a legally binding contract. You need to have funds available for a down payment as well as review your coverages for any insufficiencies.
An important thing to keep in mind when buying a new policy is you want the effective date of the new policy to be the exact same as the date you are cancelling your old policy.
If you are adding a vehicle to an existing policy and not buying a new one, just make sure to get the vehicle added as soon as possible. Every insurance company offers a grace period to add new vehicles, so make sure you get the Saleen added prior to the expiration of this grace period. Comprehensive (or Other than Collision) and collision coverage will extend to your new S7 if you current have a vehicle insured with those coverages. If you aren't insured or only carry basic liability coverage, then you will be inadequately insured until you add the vehicle to your policy with full coverage.
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. If you're considered a high-risk driver, having been convicted of a DUI, DWI, reckless driving or had your license suspended, you may need to file a SR-22. Be sure your new company files this form with your state DMV. Failure to do so can result in losing your right to drive.
