If you want to save money, the best way to find better pricing on car insurance rates in Chandler is to regularly compare prices from providers in Arizona.
First, get a basic knowledge of coverages and the things you can control to keep rates in check. Many rating criteria that increase rates such as accidents, traffic violations, and a low credit score can be improved by being financially responsible and driving safely. This article gives more information to get affordable coverage and find overlooked discounts.
Second, request rate estimates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can only give rate quotes from a single company like GEICO and Allstate, while agents who are independent can provide prices from multiple sources.
Third, compare the new rate quotes to your current policy to determine if switching companies saves money. If you find better rates and change companies, make sure there is no lapse between the expiration of your current policy and the new one.
A good piece of advice is to use similar deductibles and liability limits on every quote request and to quote with as many car insurance companies as possible. Doing this guarantees an accurate price comparison and plenty of rates choose from.
It’s easy to assume that insurance companies don’t want customers comparing rates. Consumers who perform rate comparisons will probably switch to a new company because there is a high probability of finding a lower-priced company. Surprisingly, a recent survey revealed that drivers who compared rates once a year saved over $3,450 over four years compared to people who never shopped around.

Car insurance in Arizona serves several purposes
Despite the high cost, insuring your vehicle may be mandatory for several reasons.
- Most states have mandatory insurance requirements which means the state requires a specific minimum amount of liability protection in order to drive the car legally. In Arizona these limits are 15/30/10 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you bought your NSX with a loan, it’s guaranteed your bank will require that you have insurance to guarantee payment of the loan. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Acura at a much higher rate and require you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Car insurance preserves both your Acura NSX and your assets. It will also pay for hospital and medical expenses that are the result of an accident. Liability insurance will also pay for a defense attorney if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If you have damage to your Acura as the result of the weather or an accident, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of buying enough insurance more than offset the price you pay, particularly when you have a large claim. The average driver in America is overpaying more than $700 annually so compare quotes from several companies each time the policy renews to make sure the price is not too high.
Parts of your insurance policy
Having a good grasp of your policy helps when choosing the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the normal coverages found on the average insurance policy.
Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)
Comprehensive insurance covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a deer, hitting a bird and hail damage. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Acura NSX.
Due to the fact that many Arizona drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (Arizona limits are 15/30/10), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Usually the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Liability coverage provides protection from damage that occurs to a person or their property. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You might see liability limits of 15/30/10 that means you have $15,000 bodily injury coverage, $30,000 for the entire accident, and $10,000 of coverage for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage pays for things such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses and attorney fees. How much coverage you buy is a personal decision, but buy higher limits if possible. Arizona requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/10 but drivers should carry more coverage.
The next chart shows why minimum state limits may not be adequate.
This will pay to fix damage to your NSX caused by collision with another car or object. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.
Collision coverage protects against things like colliding with another moving vehicle, hitting a parking meter, rolling your car, sideswiping another vehicle and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to raise the deductible on your NSX to get cheaper collision coverage.
Insurance for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for bills for things like rehabilitation expenses, EMT expenses, chiropractic care and funeral costs. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
