Sad but true, most consumers have purchased from the same company for a minimum of four years, and approximately 38% of consumers have never compared rates to find cheaper insurance. Many consumers in Ohio could pocket nearly 55% a year just by shopping around, but they feel it's too difficult to find cheaper rates by getting comparison quotes.
It takes a little time, but the best way to find cheaper Ford F-150 insurance in Toledo is to start doing an annual price comparison from insurers in Ohio. You can compare prices by completing these steps.
- First, try to understand the different coverages in a policy and the modifications you can make to prevent high rates. Many risk factors that drive up the price like at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, and an imperfect credit score can be amended by being financially responsible and driving safely.
- Second, compare prices from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Exclusive agents and direct companies can only quote rates from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while agents who are independent can provide price quotes for a wide range of insurance providers.
- Third, compare the new rate quotes to the premium of your current policy to see if switching to a new carrier will save money. If you can save some money and buy the policy, make sure there is no lapse in coverage.
- Fourth, tell your current company of your intent to cancel your current car insurance policy and submit payment and a completed application to the new company. Once the paperwork is finalized, keep the new proof of insurance paperwork in an easily accessible location in your vehicle.
A valuable tip to remember is to try to use similar deductibles and liability limits on every quote and and to look at as many companies as possible. This helps ensure a fair price comparison and the best rate selection.
There are several ways of comparing rate quotes from many auto insurance companies in Ohio. The easiest way to find competitive Ford F-150 insurance rates consists of obtaining rate quotes online.

Toledo insurance discounts for a Ford F-150
The price of auto insurance can be rather high, but companies offer discounts that you may not know about. A few discounts will be applied at the time you complete a quote, but some discounts are required to be requested specifically prior to receiving the credit.
- Discounts for Responsible Drivers - Accident-free drivers can save as much as half off their rates as compared to drivers with claims.
- Fewer Miles Equal More Savings - Maintaining low annual mileage may allow you to get slightly better rates than normal.
- Passenger Safety Discount - Vehicles equipped with air bags and/or automatic seat belt systems may qualify for discounts of 20 to 30 percent.
- Federal Government Employee - Active or retired federal employment could qualify for a slight premium decrease but check with your company.
- Save with a New Car - Adding a new car to your policy can get you a discount because newer models have to meet stringent safety requirements.
- Accident Forgiveness Coverage - Not necessarily a discount, but some companies like GEICO, Progressive, and Allstate will turn a blind eye to one accident before they charge you more for coverage with the catch being you have to be claim-free for a set time period.
- Discount for Life Insurance - Not all companies offer life insurance, but some may give you a small discount if you purchase auto and life insurance together.
- Mature Driver Discount - Drivers over the age of 55 may receive reduced rates.
As a sidenote, some credits don't apply to the whole policy. Most only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. Just because it seems like you would end up receiving a 100% discount, insurance companies wouldn't stay in business.

Auto insurance is not optional in Ohio
Despite the high insurance cost for a Ford F-150 in Toledo, maintaining insurance may be required and benefits you in several ways.
- Just about all states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to carry a specific level of liability insurance in order to be legal. In Ohio these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you have a lien on your Ford F-150, it's most likely the lender will stipulate that you carry insurance to guarantee their interest in the vehicle. If the policy lapses, the lender may insure your Ford for a lot more money and force you to reimburse them a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Insurance safeguards both your car and your assets. It will also provide coverage for medical bills for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability insurance will also pay attorney fees if you are sued as the result of your driving. If your car is damaged in a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.
The benefits of insuring your F-150 are definitely more than the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. Today the average American driver overpays as much as $825 a year so we recommend shopping around at every renewal to make sure the price is not too high.
Tailor your insurance coverage to you
Keep in mind that when it comes to choosing coverage for your vehicles, there really is no one-size-fits-all type of policy. Everyone's situation is unique.
For instance, these questions might point out if you would benefit from professional advice.
- Is there a penalty for late payment?
- Should I buy additional glass protection?
- Is my Ford F-150 covered if I use it for business?
- Does my policy cover my teen driver if they drive my company car?
- Will damage be repaired with OEM parts?
- Does low annual mileage earn a discount?
- Do I need to file an SR-22 for a DUI in Ohio?
If you can't answer these questions but you think they might apply to your situation, you might consider talking to a licensed agent. To find lower rates from a local agent, take a second and complete this form.

How to choose the best auto insurance agent in Toledo
If you prefer to buy car insurance from a local agent, it's important to understand the different agency structures and how they operate. Agents are categorized either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive.
Independent Car Insurance Agencies
Agents that elect to be independent are not locked into one company so they can write business with lots of companies and help determine which has the cheapest rates. If they quote lower rates, they simply move your policy to a different company which is easy for the insured. When comparing car insurance rates, you need to get insurance quotes from at a minimum one independent agency in order to compare the most rates.
