Finding cheap insurance for a Chevrolet Equinox in Texas hinges on a very complex rating algorithm that uses multiple factors such as annual vehicle mileage, your address, and your motor vehicle report. Drivers in Texas pay on average $1,318 annually for Equinox insurance, but that is an approximation using a 50-year-old single female driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $100 deductibles.
More likely than not, you’re not a 50-year-old female, possibly married instead of single, or maybe you have a speeding ticket that needs to be factored in. This illustrates why the best method for finding cheap insurance prices for your Chevrolet is to compare as many rates as possible. It only takes a few minutes and you will receive prices from the best companies that insure Chevrolet vehicles in Texas.
The trim level of your Chevrolet tends to have a direct effect on price, so the price you will pay to insure a Equinox LS 2WD model will be $140 cheaper than the price to insure the higher-end Equinox LTZ AWD version, as shown in the chart below.
|Model||Comp||Collision||Liability||Medical||UM/UIM||Annual Premium||Monthly Premium|

Should you buy full coverage?
Paying less for insurance should be important to most vehicle owners, and one common way to reduce the cost of insurance for a Chevrolet Equinox is to not buy comprehensive and collision coverage. The illustration below illustrates the comparison of car insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying liability only. The rate quotes are based on no accidents or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, marital status is single, and no additional discounts are factored in.
Averaged for all age groups, physical damage insurance costs $1,890 per year more than carrying just liability coverage. A very common question is if you should buy full coverage. There is no set guideline to stop paying for physical damage coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of coverage is more than around 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then it’s probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.
There are some circumstances where dropping full coverage is not a good plan. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not eliminate full coverage.
Why you should compare rates
Lubbock, TX insurance rates are impacted by many factors that may substantially change your annual premium. Getting older, buying a new vehicle, or getting into an accident can trigger rate changes that can cause some rates to be cheaper than competitors.
Not only may your risk profile change, but companies change the rates they charge in Texas multiple times each year to adjust for unexpected claims or profits. A period of increased losses can cause higher priced premiums, while profitable underwriting may produce lower-priced Equinox insurance rates.
For example, the bar chart below shows the cheapest car insurance in Lubbock, TX for a 30-year-old male driver with a clear driving record, no claims, and good credit. Based on his personal profile, Travelers offers the most affordable car insurance rates in Lubbock at $1,189 per year. This is $715 less than the average price paid by Texas drivers of $1,904. USAA, Texas Farm Bureau, Germania Mutual, and Esurance round out the rest of the cheapest Lubbock, TX auto insurance companies.
Let’s now give the driver from the first example an accident claim, poor credit, and a blemish on his driving record. Because every insurance company has their own formula for setting prices, comparing quotes could result in a different ranking of affordable companies as shown below.
Mercury now has the best insurance rate in Lubbock, TX with State Farm, USAA, Nationwide, and Safe Auto also having competitive pricing. This example demonstrates why consumers need to take the time to shop around to find the most affordable car insurance rates for a Chevrolet Equinox.
Insurance rates are impacted by many risk factors and change substantially, so the best option the last time you shopped around may now be costing you a lot of money.
