Ford Edge Auto Insurance

If you’re thinking of purchasing the 2011 Ford Edge, we encourage you to go for it. This attractive vehicle, whether you buy the traditional model or the crossover model, is incredibly safe. It performed very well in crash tests and rollover testing and has lots of other great safety features on top of that. All of these safety features, and many other factors, make the Ford Edge much cheaper to insure than the average standard size car. So, not only will you be driving in style and luxury, but you’ll also be saving a ton of money.

This automobile comes standard with four wheel anti-lock brakes, front seat and rear seat head airbags, front seat side air bags, child seat anchors, emergency brake assist, child safety locks, an engine immobilizer, front and rear headrests, three point seatbelts, stability control, traction control, electronic brakeforce distribution, a post collision safety system, and even automatic tire pressure monitoring. If you drive this car, then you absolutely cannot afford to go with an insurance provider that does not offer safety features discounts. With all of these great features, plus the fact that the vehicle received scores of “Good” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety during frontal offset tests, side impact tests, and rear crash protection/head restraint testing. The organization also awarded it a score of “Acceptable” during the roof strength test, which is average for vehicles of this type.

In addition to safety discounts, there are many other discounts that this automobile and the driver might qualify for. Anti-theft discounts, good driver discounts, low mileage discounts, and even good student discounts are all possibilities for those who have the right insurance companies working for them. If you don’t, of course, then you’re likely to miss out on some great deals and end up paying too much for your auto insurance.

If you don’t feel that your automobile insurance provider is giving you the best deal possible or if you are in the market for insurance, we recommend taking the time to research a lot of different insurance providers in your area. They can be big or small, from the giants like GEICO and All State to the local guys, but they should always be fully licensed in your state. You can check whether or not an organization is licensed by contacting the department of transportation in your area or its equivalent.

Once you’ve found several licensed providers, your next step should be reading online reviews, written by past or current clients of the company. This will give you a good idea of the things the provider won’t tell you – of how much customer service and support they provide, of how accessible the company is, and of how quickly they actually handle claims. The information found in the reviews should help you to narrow down your list significantly. If you still need some help whittling down that list, check out the websites of each provider. See how you feel about how they handle accounts. Are there opportunities to pay online or to compare rates? Does the site seem professional? A website tells you a lot about an insurance provider.

When you feel that your list is manageable, it’s time to get to work asking for rate quotes for the Ford Edge. These quotes should always, always be provided free of charge. If a company requires a fee or “deposit” for a rate quote, run like crazy! This is a big sign that a provider is either not legitimate or is only out to get your money. When you ask for the quote, which can be obtained online, over the phone, or in person, be sure to ask about what discounts are offered. Be sure to mention any extra safety features or anti-theft features you have installed and any other discounts you qualify for. All providers will not offer all discounts, but the one that is right for you should offer quite a few of the discounts that can save you money. If you follow these steps and are diligent about finding the right provider, you’ll be much more satisfied with your automobile insurance policy, and you’ll feel safe and protected as you drive your new, beautiful Ford Edge.
