Insurance rates Chrysler Sebring in Colorado SpringsIt takes a little time, but the best way to find lower priced auto insurance rates in Colorado Springs is to compare quotes annually from providers in Colorado.

First, get an understanding of individual coverages and the measures you can control to prevent expensive coverage. Many rating criteria that result in higher prices such as accidents, traffic violations, and a negative credit rating can be improved by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes.

Second, compare price quotes from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Exclusive and direct companies can only provide price estimates from a single company like Progressive or Allstate, while agents who are independent can quote rates from multiple companies.

Third, compare the new rate quotes to your existing rates to see if switching to a new carrier will save money. If you can save money, ensure coverage does not lapse between policies.

One thing to remember is to use identical limits and deductibles on each quote request and and to get quotes from as many companies as feasibly possible. Doing this helps ensure an apples-to-apples comparison and the best price selection.

Amazingly, almost 70% of drivers kept their coverage with the same car insurance company for more than four years, and nearly the majority have never even compared quotes to find cheaper rates. Colorado Springs insurance shoppers can save hundreds of dollars each year by just comparing quotes, but they just don't want to compare rate quotes online.

Car insurance is not optional but you don't have to overpay

Despite the potentially high cost of Chrysler Sebring insurance, buying car insurance may be required and benefits you in several ways.

  • Most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific limits of liability protection if you drive a vehicle. In Colorado these limits are 25/50/15 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $15,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If your Chrysler has a loan, most lenders will stipulate that you carry insurance to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank will be required to insure your Chrysler at a much higher rate and require you to reimburse them a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Car insurance preserves your car and your assets. It will also provide coverage for most medical and hospital costs for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay attorney fees if you are sued as the result of an accident. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to repair the damage minus the deductible amount.

The benefits of buying enough insurance outweigh the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. In a recent study of 1,000 drivers, the average customer is wasting up to $800 each year so it's recommended you shop around each time the policy renews to ensure rates are competitive.

Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Colorado minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, claim-free, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, and homeowner. Information does not factor in specific location information which can alter insurance rates greatly.

Based on these figures, using a $100 deductible will cost you about $41 more each month or $492 each year than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would pay $900 more out-of-pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you go at least 22 months between claim filings, you would probably save some money if you elect the higher deductible.

How to determine when to raise deductibles

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $125
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $84
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $41
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $41
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 22 months

The example below highlights how deductible selection and can influence Chrysler Sebring annual premium costs for each age group. The information is based on a married male driver, full coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Drive responsibly or pay higher rates

The chart below highlights how traffic violations and accident claims drive up Chrysler Sebring insurance costs for different ages of insureds. The premiums assume a single female driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $1,000 deductibles, and no policy discounts are applied.

Should you buy full coverage?

The chart below visualizes the comparison of Chrysler Sebring yearly insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. Data assumes no claims, a clean driving record, $100 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Should you pay for full coverage?

There isn't a steadfast formula of when to eliminate comp and collision coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's assume your Chrysler Sebring claim settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would receive is $7,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If it's costing in excess of $700 annually for comprehensive and collision coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are a few cases where dropping full coverage is not a good idea. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not opt for liability only.

Colorado Springs car insurance discounts

Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but there could be available discounts that may help make it more affordable. Many discounts should be triggered when you complete an application, but some need to be asked about prior to receiving the credit. If you check and find you aren't receiving every discount you qualify for, it's possible you qualify for a lower rate.Save money with discounts

  • No Claims - Good drivers with no accidents pay much less compared to insureds who have frequent claims or accidents.
  • ABS Brakes - Vehicles with ABS and/or traction control prevent accidents so companies give up to a 10% discount.
  • Senior Citizen Rates - Mature drivers can possibly qualify for a small decrease in premiums.
  • Telematics Data Discounts - Insureds who allow their car insurance company to track where and when they drive through the use of a telematics system such as State Farm's In-Drive could see a rate decrease if they show good driving skills.
  • Discount for Swiching Early - A few insurance companies offer discounts for buying a new policy early. It's a savings of about 10%.
  • College Student - Any of your kids who live away from home to go to college and do not have access to a covered vehicle may be able to be covered for less.
  • Seat Belts Save more than Lives - Drivers who require all vehicle occupants to fasten their seat belts can save up to 10 percent (depending on the company) off the PIP or medical payment premium.
  • Drive Less and Save - Driving fewer miles can earn discounted premium rates on garaged vehicles.
  • Life Insurance Discount - Not every insurance company offers life insurance, but if they do you may earn better prices if you take out some life insurance in addition to your auto policy.

Discounts save money, but please remember that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like collision or personal injury protection. Just because you may think all the discounts add up to a free policy, company stockholders wouldn't be very happy. Any qualifying discounts will lower your premiums.

The example below illustrates the difference between Chrysler Sebring insurance prices with and without discounts being applied to the rates. The rates are based on a female driver, no claims, a clean driving record, Colorado state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $500 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with safe-driver, multi-policy, homeowner, multi-car, marriage, and claim-free discounts applied.

A few companies that possibly offer some of the discounts shown above may include but are not limited to:

These type of agents generally can only insure with one company and examples are Farmers Insurance, American Family, State Farm and Allstate. Exclusive agents cannot give you multiple price quotes so always compare other rates. Exclusive agencies are well schooled on their company's products and that allows them to sell at a higher price point. Consumers sometimes buy from the same agent for years mostly because of the brand rather than having low rates.

Independent Insurance Agents

Agents in the independent channel are appointed with more than one company and that is an advantage because they can write policies with an assortment of companies and possibly get better coverage at lower prices.

If you need lower rates, you definitely need to get rate quotes from independent agents to maximize your price options. They also have the ability to place coverage with smaller mutual companies which may provide better rates.
