Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Arizona minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, claim-free, homeowner, safe-driver, and multi-vehicle. Price estimates do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can alter auto insurance rates greatly.

We can estimate from the data above that using a $250 deductible costs roughly $26 more each month or $312 every year than quoting the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $750 more if you turn in a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you usually have at least 29 months between claims, you would probably come out ahead if you choose the higher deductible. The table below illustrates how you can come to your own conclusion.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $107
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $81
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $26
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 – $250): $750
Divide difference by monthly savings: $750 / $26
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 29 months

An important sidenote is that increasing deductibles to lower your rates results in having to pay to pay more out-of-pocket when you have a comprehensive or collision claim. You should have some funds available in the event you have to pay the higher deductible.

Bad driving habits will cost you more

Cost of full coverage in Chandler

The information below compares Lincoln MKT auto insurance rates with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The premium estimates are based on no claims, a clean driving record, $100 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

Guidelines for dropping full coverage

There isn’t a steadfast formula to eliminate full coverage on your policy, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than about 10% of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

For example, let’s assume your Lincoln MKT book value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, you would only receive $2,000 after the deductible is paid. If it’s costing you more than $200 a year for physical damage coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.

There are some scenarios where eliminating full coverage is not in your best interest. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if you don’t have enough money to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not remove full coverage.

If you would like to find a reliable insurance agency, it helps to know the two types of agencies that you can select. Insurance agents in Chandler are classified as either independent or exclusive depending on the company they work for. Both types can provide insurance policies, but it is a good idea to know how they differ because it can influence which type of agent you select.

Exclusive Insurance Agencies

Exclusive agents are contracted to one company such as Allstate, AAA, Farmers Insurance, and State Farm. Exclusive agencies are unable to provide other company’s prices so they really need to provide good service. Exclusive agents are usually well trained on their company’s products and that enables them to sell even at higher rates. Some consumers prefer to buy from the same agent for years partially due to the prominence of the brand and the convenience of having all coverages with one company.

Independent Insurance Agents

Agents of this type do not write with just one company so as a result can place your coverage through many different insurance companies and find you cheaper rates.

When comparison shopping, it’s recommended you get quotes from a few independent agents to get the most accurate price comparison. Most have the option of insuring with small mutual carriers that may provide cheaper insurance rates.
