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. But now you can eliminate that hassle and buy online!
You can now shop all the best car insurance companies and compare rates for a Toyota Avalon and you don't even have to visit each individual website!
Simply click the link below to start a quote that will compare rates from many companies and you may find a lower rate than you're currently paying.
Quote Tip! When doing car insurance quotes for your Avalon, make sure you use the exact same values for coverages and deductibles. If you use different limits, you will not be able to fairly compare rates between different companies.
Step Two: Insider Tips for Finding Cheaper Avalon 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 Avalon that will also lower the rate you pay irregardless of which company you choose.
- If you car makes the top ten list of most stolen cars, you might be paying a little extra to insure it.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Most Toyota vehicles come with standard safety features such as air bags and passive restraints, and those will help keep your insurance costs down.
- Allowing your insurance to lapse for any length of time will increase the cost of a new policy. Always keep coverage in force.
- One of the easiest ways to keep your rates down is to drive safe. One speeding ticket can boost your rates for three years.
- Driver's safety courses will often get you a discount off your rates. Check to see if your company offers the discount and find a qualifying class in your area.
- Youthful or teen drivers that are rated on any vehicle will cost more. The inexperience and tendancy to enjoy going fast is a recipe for an accident.
- How is your credit rating? The better credit you have, the less insurance will cost for your Avalon. If you have bad credit, work on improving your credit score and repair past credit problems.
- 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.
Step Three: Finalize your Car Insurance Policy
Now that you hopefully have several rates to compare and have made any changes needed to your individual coverages, you can choose the best company to insure your Avalon with.
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.
Any time you buy a new vehicle, make sure you have car insurance in place, either from an existing policy or a new policy that you purchase from the dealership floor. Your existing car insurance policy will give you some coverage if you buy a new or used Avalon, but unless you are already paying for full coverage, you won't have it until you add the vehicle to your policy.
Once you have purchased your policy, print out the insurance card that must go in your vehicle. This card fulfills the state law requiring you to prove financial responsibility. 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.
