I can’t think of a single person who likes having to buy car insurance, especially knowing the price is too high. Because there are so many online and local companies to choose from, it can be impossible to choose the lowest price provider.
You need to price shop coverage once or twice a year due to the fact that insurance rates change regularly. Just because you found the best deal two years ago there may be better deals available now. Ignore everything you know about car insurance because you’re about to find out one of the easiest ways to lower your rates without sacrificing coverage.
This information will tell you the most effective way to quote insurance and some tricks to saving. If you currently have car insurance, you should be able to lower your premiums substantially using this information. Utah drivers only need to know the proper way to find the lowest price over the internet.
Getting better car insurance pricing is not a difficult process. You just need to spend a few minutes on the computer comparing price quotes from different insurance companies. It is quite easy and can be accomplished using a couple different methods.
Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you use the exact same coverages for every company. If you use different limits and deductibles on each one you can’t possibly find the best deal in South Salt Lake.
Utah consumers can’t ignore all the ads for car insurance savings from companies such as Progressive, Allstate and GEICO. They all have a common claim that you can save if you move your policy.
How can each company make almost identical claims? This is how they do it.
Different companies can use profiling for the driver that is profitable for them. A good example of a desirable insured could possibly be between the ages of 30 and 50, has no tickets, and drives newer vehicles. A propective insured who matches those parameters gets the lowest rates and is almost guaranteed to save quite a bit of money when switching.
Potential insureds who don’t qualify for the requirements must pay higher prices and ends up with the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ads state “people who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save money. That’s why insurance companies can confidently state the savings.
This illustrates why drivers must quote coverage with many companies. It’s just too difficult to predict which company will fit your personal profile best.
It’s important that you understand the different types of things that play a part in calculating the price you pay for car insurance. Having a good understanding of what determines base rates allows you to make educated decisions that could result in better car insurance rates.
Shown below are a few of the “ingredients” companies use to determine premiums.
Insuring your fleet can be pricey, but you can get discounts that you may not know about. Most are applied when you quote, but lesser-known reductions have to be asked for prior to getting the savings. If you don’t get every credit available, you’re just leaving money on the table.
As a disclaimer on discounts, most credits do not apply to all coverage premiums. A few only apply to specific coverage prices like liability and collision coverage. Just because you may think it’s possible to get free car insurance, you’re out of luck. But all discounts will cut the cost of coverage.

While you’re price shopping online, you should never buy less coverage just to save a little money. There have been many situations where someone sacrificed physical damage coverage only to find out that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your focus should be to get the best coverage possible for the lowest price, not the least amount of coverage.
Cheaper car insurance is possible on the web and also from your neighborhood South Salt Lake agents, so you should compare both in order to have the best chance of saving money. There are still a few companies who may not provide online quoting and usually these smaller companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
