It takes a little time, but the best way to get budget Dodge Charger insurance in Toledo is to regularly compare price quotes from insurance carriers in Ohio.

First, gain an understanding of how insurance companies determine prices and the measures you can control to keep rates low. Many policy risk factors that cause rate increases such as traffic violations and an imperfect credit history can be eliminated by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes.

Second, get rate quotes from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can only provide price estimates from a single company like Progressive and State Farm, while independent agencies can quote prices for many different companies.

Third, compare the price quotes to your existing coverage to see if a cheaper rate is available. If you find a better price and decide to switch, make sure there is no coverage gap between policies.

An essential thing to point out is that you'll want to make sure you compare identical limits and deductibles on every quote request and and to compare every company you can. This helps ensure an apples-to-apples comparison and a complete price analysis.

Insurance for Dodge ChargerAnyone knows that car insurance companies don't want customers comparing rates. Insureds who shop for lower prices are inclined to switch auto insurance companies because there is a significant possibility of finding a more affordable policy premium. Surprisingly, a recent survey revealed that drivers who made a habit of comparing rates saved an average of $865 a year as compared to drivers who never compared rates.

If finding the most affordable Dodge Charger insurance is your goal, then having an understanding of how to shop for car insurance can help you succeed in finding affordable rates.

Virtually everyone who is required by state law to have car insurance stands a good chance to be able to find better rates.

Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Ohio minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-vehicle, claim-free, safe-driver, and multi-policy. Price estimates do not factor in specific Toledo garaging location which can increase or decrease prices significantly.

We can estimate from the data above that using a $250 deductible costs about $11 more each month or $132 annually averaged for all Charger models than quoting the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $250 more to file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you normally average at a minimum 23 months between claim filings, you would probably come out ahead if you choose the higher deductible. Here is a better example of how you can decide this on your own policy.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $83
Average monthly premium for $500 deductibles (subtract): - $72
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $11
Difference between deductibles ($500 - $250): $250
Divide difference by monthly savings: $250 / $11
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 23 months

One important note is that increasing deductibles to lower your rates means you will have to pay more out-of-pocket if you have a claim. That will force you to have access to more funds in the event you need to pay the higher deductible in order to repair your vehicle.

Drive responsibly or pay higher rates

The example below shows how speeding tickets and at-fault claims can affect Dodge Charger yearly insurance costs for each different age category. The data is based on a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, $250 deductibles, and no other discounts are factored in.

Rate difference between full and liability-only coverage

The chart below illustrates the difference between Dodge Charger premium costs with and without physical damage coverage, medical payments, and uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage. The prices are based on no violations or claims, $500 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are taken into consideration.

Should you pay for full coverage?

There is no set guideline of when to stop paying for comp and collision coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

For example, let's say your Dodge Charger claim settlement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most your company will settle for is $5,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If you are paying in excess of $500 a year for physical damage coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some cases where dropping physical damage coverage is not advised. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to maintain full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should not buy liability only.

Car insurance coverage considerations

Knowing the specifics of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are the normal coverages found on the average car insurance policy.

Liability

Liability coverage provides protection from injuries or damage you cause to other people or property. Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a limit of $25,000 per injured person, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit without having the split limit caps.

Liability insurance covers things such as bail bonds, legal defense fees and emergency aid. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a decision to put some thought into, but buy as high a limit as you can afford. Ohio state law requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/25 but you should think about purchasing more coverage.

The next chart shows why the minimum limit may not be adequate.

Collision insurance

Collision insurance covers damage to your Charger caused by collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers things such as scraping a guard rail, sideswiping another vehicle and colliding with another moving vehicle. This coverage can be expensive, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible on your Charger in order to get cheaper collision rates.

UM/UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle's damage.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (25/50/25 in Ohio), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea. Normally these coverages are identical to your policy's liability coverage.

Medical payments and PIP coverage

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for pain medications, nursing services and rehabilitation expenses. They are utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive auto coverage

This covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like theft, rock chips in glass, vandalism and a broken windshield. The highest amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle's value is low consider dropping full coverage.

Smart consumers save more

You just read some good ideas how you can reduce Dodge Charger insurance rates online in Toledo. The key thing to remember is the more rate quotes you have, the better your comparison will be. Consumers could even find that the most savings is with a small local company. These companies may only write in your state and offer lower auto insurance rates as compared to the big name companies such as Progressive and GEICO.

More affordable car insurance in Toledo can be found on the web and from local insurance agents, so you need to shop Toledo car insurance with both to get a complete price analysis. Some car insurance companies may not offer online price quotes and many times these regional insurance providers prefer to sell through independent agencies.

As you restructure your insurance plan, make sure you don't reduce coverage to reduce premium. In many cases, consumers will sacrifice liability coverage limits and found out when filing a claim that it was a big mistake. Your strategy should be to find the BEST coverage at a price you can afford and still be able to protect your assets.
