Chrysler Lebaron Auto Insurance

If you own a Chrysler Lebaron, then you should know that you own both a luxury car and a classic car, both of which can cause your insurance rates to skyrocket if you’re not careful and don’t know what to do to lower insurance rates. Whether you own the original 1930s model, the 1977-1981 m-body m-size, the 1982-1988 K-body compact, the 1985 to 1989 H-body mid-size, the 1987-1995 J-body personal luxury, or the 1990-1994 AA-body mid-size, there are things you’ll need to do to make sure your car insurance rates aren’t through the roof and more than you can afford to pay or should have to pay just to drive your vehicle.

First and foremost, you’ll need to make sure that you are dealing with an honest, affordable insurance provider. You’d need to do this no matter what car you were driving, but it’s especially important for those who own expensive to insure vehicles like the Chrysler Lebaron. You’ll want to start your search by compiling a list of all of the licensed insurance providers in your area. In order to make sure it’s thorough—since you’ll want to see all of your options to end up with the most affordable policy—include both the bigger name providers, like GEICO and All State, and smaller, more local providers. These smaller providers, which are often overlooked, will offer great insurance rates and special deals to owners of classic and luxury vehicles in many cases.

With your list in front of you, start going through and researching each provider. A good way to get basic information about a provider is to visit its website. If you run across a provider that doesn’t insure classic cars (somewhat common) or that doesn’t insure luxury vehicles (rare), you can be sure to cross that one off your list. Most of your eliminating, however, will come as you do more in depth research. For example, you might cross providers off your list who have overwhelmingly negative customer reviews, especially if complaints deal with rising insurance rates, poor claims handling efficiency, or bad customer service. You might also cross off providers who have had several complaints with the Better Business Bureau or whose websites are unprofessional.

Your list should be narrowed down at this point, which will make it easier and less time consuming for you to request free rate quotes from all of the remaining providers. Make sure that you automatically discount any provider that asks you to pay for a rate quote, as these should always be offered free of charge. When you have your rate quotes, you should go through and choose the provider that offers you not just the lowest rate, but also the best coverage. Sometimes, it’s better to pay just a little bit more for your insurance and be better protected.

When you have your insurance for your special vehicle squared away, now it’s time to start trying for all of the discounts that you can! These discounts will help to counteract the slightly higher insurance rates you’ll be expected to pay as the owner of a luxury and classic vehicle. The good news, however, is that if you’ve chosen your provider carefully as described above, you likely won’t have to worry about qualifying for quite so many discounts to get your costs down. Good discounts that can be helpful for car owners like yourself include anti theft feature discounts, applied when you install approved anti-theft features, like a car alarm or steering wheel lock, on your vehicle; safety feature discounts, applied when you install approved safety features, such as airbags, on your vehicle; good driver discounts, awarded after a set amount of time in which you remain accident free and ticket free; multiple policy discounts, given to drivers who insure more than one vehicle through the provider or who also have home or renter’s insurance through the provider; and many other discounts as well.

Do be aware that not all providers will offer all discounts, and each will likely have different requirements for receiving the discount. As such, make sure that you discuss any plans to qualify for a particular discount with your insurance provider ahead of time.
