Step 1: Spend some time learning about the different coverages in a policy and the things you can change to prevent expensive coverage.

Step 4: Provide notification to your current company of your decision to cancel your current coverage and submit payment and a completed application for the new coverage. Immediately upon receiving it, place your new certificate verifying proof of insurance with the vehicle registration.

Above prices assume married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and California minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-policy, homeowner, multi-vehicle, safe-driver, and claim-free. Prices do not factor in specific location which can raise or lower coverage prices greatly.

Based on these figures, using a $250 deductible costs about $36 more each month or $432 a year across all GMC Sierra models than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible.

Insurance rates and discounts

Properly insuring your vehicles can get expensive, but there may be some discounts that you may not even be aware of. Some discounts apply automatically when you get a quote, but occasionally some discounts must be inquired about prior to receiving the credit. If you check and find you aren't receiving every discount possible, you are throwing money away.Save money with discounts

  • Early Renewal Discounts - Some insurance companies give discounts for switching policies before your current Sierra insurance policy expires. It could save around 10% when you buy Chula Vista car insurance online.
  • Telematics Data Discounts - Insureds who allow their insurance company to track driving habits by using a small device installed in their vehicle such as State Farm's In-Drive could see a rate decrease if they show good driving skills.
  • Service Members Pay Less - Having an actively deployed family member can result in better premium rates.
  • Government Employee Discount - Active or former government employment can earn a discount up to 10% depending on your insurance provider.
  • Theft Prevention System - Vehicles that have factory alarm systems and tracking devices prevent vehicle theft and can earn a small discount on your policy.

It's important to note that most of the big mark downs will not be given to the overall cost of the policy. The majority will only reduce the cost of specific coverages such as comprehensive or collision. So despite the fact that it appears all those discounts means the company will pay you, it doesn't quite work that way. Any amount of discount will definitely lower the cost of your policy.

The prices are based on a male driver, no claims or violations, California state minimum liability limits, comprehensive and collision coverage, and $100 deductibles.

Auto insurance coverage information

Understanding the coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing which coverages you need and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Listed below are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.

Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for expenses such as doctor visits, surgery and prosthetic devices. The coverages can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM)

This gives you protection when the "other guys" either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include hospital bills for your injuries as well as damage to your GMC Sierra.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (California limits are 15/30/5), their limits can quickly be used up. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage is very important. Normally the UM/UIM limits are identical to your policy's liability coverage.

Collision coverage protection

Collision insurance pays for damage to your Sierra caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision insurance covers claims such as backing into a parked car, colliding with a tree, crashing into a ditch, rolling your car and scraping a guard rail. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible on your Sierra in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Liability

Liability insurance protects you from damage or injury you incur to other people or property by causing an accident. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 15/30/5 that translate to $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a limit of $30,000 in injury protection per accident, and $5,000 of coverage for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability can pay for things such as court costs, attorney fees, funeral expenses, bail bonds and pain and suffering. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible. California state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/5 but it's recommended drivers buy more liability than the minimum.

The illustration below shows why buying low liability limits may not provide you with enough coverage.

Comprehensive insurance

This pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. A deductible will apply then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a bird, theft, damage from getting keyed and rock chips in glass. The highest amount you'll receive from a claim is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
