Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, homeowner, multi-vehicle, claim-free, and safe-driver. Rates do not factor in specific garaging location which can decrease or increase rates considerably.

Using the data above, we can ascertain that using a $100 deductible costs approximately $26 more each month or $312 every year averaged for all Equator models than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $400 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to average at a minimum 15 months between claim filings, you would save more money if you opt for a higher deductible.

Car insurance does more than just repair your car

Despite the high cost, car insurance serves an important purpose.

  • Just about all states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry specific limits of liability insurance in order to license the vehicle. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you took out a loan on your Suzuki, more than likely the lender will make it mandatory that you have insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Suzuki at a much higher rate and force you to pay for it.
  • Insurance protects not only your vehicle but also your financial assets. It will also pay for medical bills for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay to defend you if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If your Suzuki gets damaged, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay to repair the damage.

The benefits of insuring your Equator more than cancel out the cost, especially when you need to use it. But the average driver in Texas is wasting up to $855 a year so shop around every year to ensure rates are inline.

Specific coverages for a Suzuki Equator

Knowing the specifics of your car insurance policy helps when choosing the right coverages for your vehicles. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Listed below are typical coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Auto collision coverage

Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from colliding with another car or object. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for things like colliding with a tree, sideswiping another vehicle, crashing into a building, colliding with another moving vehicle and rolling your car. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible on your Equator in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses such as chiropractic care, funeral costs, dental work, EMT expenses and X-ray expenses. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance program or if there is no health insurance coverage. It covers you and your occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

This coverage provides protection from other drivers when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. This coverage pays for injuries sustained by your vehicle's occupants as well as your vehicle's damage.

Due to the fact that many Texas drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (30/60/25), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is very important. Most of the time the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liability limits.

Auto liability

Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property by causing an accident. It protects you from legal claims by others. Liability doesn't cover damage to your own property or vehicle.

Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. As an example, you may have values of 30/60/25 that translate to $30,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, a total of $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use one number which is a combined single limit which combines the three limits into one amount without having the split limit caps.

Liability coverage pays for things like loss of income, repair costs for stationary objects, funeral expenses and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but it's cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible. Texas requires drivers to carry at least 30/60/25 but you should think about purchasing more coverage.

The next chart demonstrates why buying minimum limits may not be enough.

Comprehensive insurance

Comprehensive insurance coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims such as damage from a tornado or hurricane, damage from getting keyed and falling objects. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Frequent quotes can save

While you're price shopping online, you should never sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. In many cases, an insured dropped full coverage only to find out that the small savings ended up costing them much more. Your objective should be to buy a smart amount of coverage for the lowest cost, not the least amount of coverage.

You just read many ideas to save on Suzuki Equator insurance in Lubbock. The key thing to remember is the more rate quotes you have, the better likelihood of getting affordable Lubbock car insurance quotes. Consumers could even find that the lowest prices come from a company that doesn't do a lot of advertising. They often have lower rates on specific markets compared to the large companies like Progressive and GEICO.
