Everyone knows that auto insurance companies want to keep you from comparing prices. Consumers who get price quotes annually are very likely to switch to a new company because of the good chance of finding lower rate quotes. A study showed that consumers who regularly compared price quotes saved an average of $3,400 over four years compared to people who never compared rates.

If finding discount rates on Chevy Corvette insurance is your objective, then understanding how to shop and compare insurance can save time, money, and frustration.

Insurance rates Chevy Corvette in LubbockReally, the only way to find lower priced Chevy Corvette insurance is to compare prices regularly from providers that insure vehicles in Lubbock. You can shop around by completing these steps.

Step 1: Try to comprehend how car insurance works and the changes you can make to lower rates. Many rating criteria that cause high rates like traffic citations, accidents, and a not-so-good credit rating can be amended by improving your driving habits or financial responsibility.

Step 2: Quote rates from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Direct companies and exclusive agencies can only give prices from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while independent agents can quote prices from multiple companies. View rates

Step 3: Compare the new rate quotes to the price on your current policy to determine if switching companies saves money. If you find a lower rate and make a switch, verify that coverage does not lapse between policies.

Step 4: Notify your agent or company to cancel your current policy and submit payment and a signed application for your new policy. Make sure you put the new certificate verifying proof of insurance above your visor, in the console, or in the glove compartment.

A tip to remember is to try to use identical limits and deductibles on every quote request and and to get price estimates from as many carriers as you can. Doing this helps ensure a level playing field and a thorough selection of prices.

Above prices assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, claim-free, multi-vehicle, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Rates do not factor in your specific Lubbock location which can decrease or increase rates considerably.

We can estimate from the data above that using a $100 deductible could cost the average driver approximately $46 more each month or $552 a year across all Chevrolet Corvette models than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $400 more out-of-pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you usually have at a minimum 9 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead by going with a higher deductible.

How to calculate deductible break even point

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $175
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $129
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $46
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $100): $400
Divide difference by monthly savings: $400 / $46
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 9 months

One important note is that a higher deductible means you pay more out-of-pocket at claim time. You will want to have enough money stashed away in order to pay the higher deductible.

Difference between full coverage and liability only rates

The illustration below shows the comparison of Chevy Corvette car insurance rates with and without physical damage coverage. The premium estimates are based on a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, $100 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

When to eliminate full coverage

There isn't a written rule to stop buying comp and collision coverage, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

For example, let's say your Chevy Corvette replacement cost is $5,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company will settle for is $4,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are currently paying more than $400 a year for comprehensive and collision coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

There are some circumstances where eliminating full coverage is not recommended. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to carry full coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not remove full coverage.

Insurance policy discounts for Chevy Corvette insurance in Lubbock

Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but you might find some hidden discounts that many people don't even know exist. Some of these discounts will be visible at the time you complete a quote, but some discounts are required to be manually applied prior to receiving the credit.Cheaper insurance with discounts

  • Anti-theft Discount - Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices are stolen less frequently and can earn a small discount on your policy.
  • Own a Home and Save - Being a homeowner can help you save on insurance because of the fact that having a home means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Drive Less and Save - Fewer annual miles on your Chevy may allow you to get cheaper insurance rates.
  • Accident Forgiveness - This isn't a discount exactly, but some companies like Allstate and GEICO will turn a blind eye to one accident without raising rates as long as you don't have any claims prior to being involved in the accident.
  • Passive Restraints - Vehicles equipped with air bags or automatic seat belts can qualify for discounts of 25 to 30%.
  • ABS Brakes - Vehicles with ABS braking systems or traction control are safer to drive and earn discounts up to 10%.

You should keep in mind that some of the credits will not apply to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like medical payments or collision. Even though it appears you could get a free insurance policy, insurance companies wouldn't stay in business.

How to Lower Your Insurance Prices

Part of the insurance buying process is learning the different types of things that help determine the rates you pay for insurance. When you understand what positively or negatively impacts your premiums, this allows you to make educated decisions that can earn you better insurance rates.

The following are most of the major factors insurance companies consider when setting prices.

  • Women pay lower premiums - Statistics show women tend to be less risk to insure than men. However, don't assume that women are BETTER drivers than men. Males and females cause auto accidents in similar numbers, but males cause more damage. They also get cited for more serious violations like reckless driving and DUI. Male teenagers generally have the highest accident percentage so they pay the highest premiums.

    The chart below illustrates the comparison of Chevy Corvette car insurance rates for male and female drivers. Data assumes no claims, a clean driving record, comprehensive and collision coverage, $250 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no other discounts are factored in.

  • Do you work long hours in a tough employer? - Occupations such as military generals, police officers, and financial analysts have the highest rates attributed to intense work-related stress and incredibly demanding work hours. Conversely, careers such as actors, students and homemakers have the lowest average rates.
  • Car insurance liability limits - A critical coverage on your policy, liability insurance provides coverage when you are determined to be liable for causing damage or personal injury in an accident. Your liability coverage provides legal defense coverage to defend your case. It is affordable coverage compared to comp and collision, so drivers should buy more than the minimum limits required by law.
  • Raise your comp and collision deductibles for better costs - Physical damage coverage, termed comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, helps pay for damage to your vehicle. Some instances where coverage would apply are a broken side mirror, hail damage, and damage from a fallen tree branch. Deductibles for physical damage state the amount of money you are required to spend out-of-pocket if a claim is determined to be covered. The larger the amount the insured is willing to pay, the better rate you will receive.
  • High insurance claims frequency drives up premiums - If you're an insured who likes to file claims you can pretty much guarantee increased rates or even have your policy non-renewed. Insurance companies in Texas generally give the lowest premiums to policyholders who are not frequent claim filers. Auto insurance is intended for major claims that would cause financial hardship.
  • Insurance losses for a Chevy Corvette - Companies take into consideration historical loss data for every vehicle to help determine the price you pay. Models that statistically have a trend towards higher claims will cost more for coverage. The table below demonstrates the actual insurance loss data for Chevy Corvette vehicles.

    For each policy coverage, the claim probability for all vehicles combined as an average is represented as 100. Values below 100 are indicative of better than average losses, while values over 100 indicate higher probability of having a loss or a tendency for losses to be larger than average.
