The preferred way to find better pricing on auto insurance rates is to regularly compare price quotes from companies who provide car insurance in Colorado Springs.
- Step 1: Learn about auto insurance and the measures you can control to prevent expensive coverage. Many factors that increase rates such as getting speeding tickets and a less-than-favorable credit score can be rectified by improving your driving habits or financial responsibility. This article gives instructions to help prevent expensive coverage and get bigger discounts that may have been overlooked.
- Step 2: Compare rates from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Direct and exclusive agents can give quotes from one company like GEICO or Allstate, while independent agents can provide price quotes from multiple insurance companies. View companies
- Step 3: Compare the new quotes to your existing policy to see if you can save by switching companies. If you can save some money and change companies, make sure coverage does not lapse between policies.
- Step 4: Notify your company or agent of your decision to cancel your current car insurance policy and submit the signed application along with the required initial payment to the new insurer. Immediately upon receiving it, keep your new certificate of insurance with your vehicle's registration.
A valuable tip to remember is to compare similar deductibles and liability limits on each price quote and and to compare every company you can. This ensures a level playing field and a complete selection of prices.
It's safe to conclude that insurance companies don't want you to look for a cheaper policy. People who compare price quotes are highly likely to switch to a new company because there is a good probability of finding good coverage at a lower price. A study showed that drivers who made a habit of comparing rate quotes saved as much as $850 each year compared to other drivers who don't make a habit of comparing rates.
If finding the cheapest price on auto insurance in Colorado Springs is your target objective, then having some knowledge of the best way to compare insurance rates can make the process less intimidating.

Finding a good insurer requires more thought than just a cheap price. Any agent in Colorado Springs should be forthright in answering these questions:
- How often do they review policy coverages?
- How does the company pay claims for a total loss?
- If they are an independent agency in Colorado Springs, which companies do they recommend?
- Are you getting all the discounts the company offers?
- Will you work with the agent or an assistant?
Exclusive agents vs. Independent agents
If you want a reliable agent, you need to know there are two types of agencies and how they can write your policy. Insurance agents are categorized either independent agents or exclusive agents depending on their employer. Either type can sell and service insurance coverage, but it's good to learn how they are different because it can impact buying decisions.
Exclusive Insurance Agents
Agents in the exclusive channel can usually just insure with one company and some examples include State Farm, Allstate and AAA. They usually cannot compare rates from other companies so if the price isn't competitive there isn't much they can do. These agents are well trained on their company's products which helps them sell insurance even at higher premiums. Some insured continue to buy from exclusive agents partially due to loyalty to the company rather than low rates.

- What is covered by UM/UIM coverage?
- Do I have coverage when making deliveries for my home business?
- Do I need replacement cost coverage?
- Are my company tools covered if they get stolen?
- What is an SR-22 filing?
- Should I put collision coverage on all my vehicles?
- I have good health insurance, so how much medical payments coverage do I need?
If you can't answer these questions then you might want to talk to a licensed agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, take a second and complete this form or you can also visit this page to select a carrier It's fast, free and can help protect your family.
Car insurance coverage basics
Learning about specific coverages of a car insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be impossible to understand and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Listed below are typical coverage types available from car insurance companies.
Liability auto insurance
This coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to people or other property in an accident. This insurance protects YOU against other people's claims, and doesn't cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have policy limits of 25/50/15 that means you have a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $15,000.
Liability coverage pays for things such as medical expenses, funeral expenses, legal defense fees, repair bills for other people's vehicles and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible. Colorado state minimum liability requirements are 25/50/15 but it's recommended drivers buy better liability coverage.
The next chart demonstrates why minimum state limits may not be enough.
Auto collision coverage
This will pay to fix damage to your Range Rover resulting from colliding with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like colliding with a tree, backing into a parked car and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to bump up the deductible on your Range Rover to get cheaper collision coverage.
Medical expense coverage
Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance reimburse you for short-term medical expenses for things like chiropractic care, dental work, rehabilitation expenses, hospital visits and X-ray expenses. They are often used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay
Uninsured or underinsured coverage
This protects you and your vehicle from other drivers when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered claims include injuries to you and your family and also any damage incurred to your Land Rover Range Rover.
Since many Colorado drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (which is 25/50/15), it doesn't take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This coverage pays for damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as hitting a deer, falling objects, damage from flooding, vandalism and fire damage. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Don't give up on cheaper rates
More affordable car insurance in Colorado Springs is possible from both online companies and also from your neighborhood Colorado Springs agents, and you need to price shop both so you have a total pricing picture. Some car insurance companies don't offer rates over the internet and many times these regional carriers only sell coverage through independent agents.
When getting Colorado Springs car insurance quotes online, don't be tempted to skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are many occasions where an insured cut liability limits or collision coverage and discovered at claim time that they should have had better coverage. The ultimate goal is to purchase plenty of coverage at the best cost while still protecting your assets.
