Toyota Tacoma 4×4 Truck Insurance






If you are thinking of owning the Toyota Tacoma 4×4, then you’ll be happy to know that it is very possible to insure this truck at an affordable rate. While trucks, sport utility vehicles, and other larger automobiles can often be more expensive to insure than standard sized cars due to their high value and their high chance of rollover, this truck has so many great safety features and has performed so well in safety tests that you won’t have a thing to worry about. In fact, all the great safety features and the high performance in testing will likely qualify you for several discounts with your insurance provider.

Safety features that come standard with the Toyota Tacoma 4×4 and that can qualify you for some hefty discounts include the patented Star Safety System, which comes with vehicle stability control, traction control, an antilock brake system, electronic brakeforce distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology; front seat advanced airbags; front seat side airbags; rear side curtain airbags for all seating positions; three point seatbelts throughout; side impact door beams; lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH), and a tire pressure monitoring system. Drivers can also opt to add on daytime running lights for additional discounts. These can especially come in handy in areas where there tends to be lots of fog or inclimate weather.

Of course, not all insurance providers will honor your truck’s awesome safety features with appropriate discounts, so you’ll need to make sure you’re working with one that does. After all, the best insurance provider is one that seeks to save you, the customer, as much money as possible without sacrificing good coverage. If you are dissatisfied with your current provider’s service or if you haven’t yet secured insurance for your Toyota Tacoma, then you should know that it’s very easy to find a better provider or the right provider for the first time.

Your first step in finding good insurance should be to speak with the transportation bureau or its equivalent n your area. From such an organization, you can collect a free list of all licensed insurance providers in your area. Licensed providers are the only providers that are worth your time and efforts. Not only are they fully accredited by the state, but all of their policies meet minimum insurance requirements at least, so you’ll never have to worry about whether or not you’re abiding by the law.

Once you have this list in front of you, it’s time for the work to start. You should research each provider in your area.  A good starting point is to visit each company’s website. Spend some time looking at the different packages each company offers and reading about the company’s history and longevity in the community. From there, you can proceed to read online client reviews, either from past or present clients, on other sites. Be sure that you do not read “reviews” on the provider’s site, as these are simply testimonials and will not provide an unbiased opinion. Use the information you find in your research to mark off providers who have a shady reputation, who do not seem established, or who have overwhelmingly negative reviews. Please note, however, that you should not automatically discount smaller, local providers in favor of the larger, better known ones. Sometimes, these smaller companies provide great customer service and affordable rates, often even better than the larger companies.

Now that your list is looking a little more manageable, you’ll want to start requesting insurance rate quotes. Fortunately, these are provided free of charge and can usually be obtained online, in person, or over the phone –whichever is easiest for you. When you have a variety of rate quotes in front of you, you can easily compare and find the one that will be the best fit for you and your new Toyota Tacoma 4×4. Though it can be tempting to simply choose the provider that offers you the lowest rate, price isn’t the only thing you should consider while making your decision. Make sure you pay attention to both the cost and the coverage you will be getting. Coverage, after all, is what insurance is all about.




New Cars Over $35,000 – Is Car Insurance More Expensive?






If you are planning to purchase a new car over $35,000 in value, or if you already have made the purchase, you may be wondering if your insurance rates are going to go up. Unfortunately, the answer to that question is yes. Generally, the more valuable a vehicle is, the more it will cost to insure. The good news, however, is that there are many things that you can do to lower your insurance rates. While you won’t be paying the lowest rates around, you can enjoy significantly reduced rates as you drive your new and very valuable automobile.

Before we share a few money-saving tips, however, you need to know that the cost of the coverage isn’t the only thing that matters when choosing an insurance policy. You must also be sure to pick a policy that provides you with adequate coverage in the event of an accident. If you, like most people, took out a loan for your new car, be aware that you are required by law to have full coverage insurance until the loan is paid in full. Even if you paid out of pocket for the car, you will still want to have coverage that protects your vehicle well and that keeps you from being out all of the money you spent on your new automobile.

In addition to getting adequate coverage, you will also, of course, want to be sure and find a provider that offers good customer service, accessibility, efficiency at claims handling, and generally has the customer’s best interest at heart. The best way to find out whether a particular insurance provider possesses these qualities is to talk to friends or family members who have used or who are currently using the company or to read online reviews written by past or present clients.

With that said, let’s talk about how you can save money on your auto insurance. First things first, if you haven’t already bought the car, take a minute to reconsider your decision. By choosing to purchase the automobile in a slightly older make, even just last year or the year before that’s model, you can significantly cut back on insurance costs. If you’re dead set on purchasing a specific new car, however, or if you’ve already made your purchase, there are still things that you can do to reduce automobile insurance costs, so don’t panic just yet!

Your car should not be a “dangerous” car, such as a roadster or a car with very high speeds. If it is, your insurance rates will be higher than average, on top of the already high cost of insuring a newer car. However, you can improve these rates by choosing to install safety features on your automobile. This is a good decision and can offer lower rates to owners of any type of automobile, in fact. Features such as air bags, rearview cameras, antilock brakes, and more all cut back on insurance costs and make the driving experience safer.

In addition to adding on safety features, you should also look for other discounts for which you qualify. If you added anti-theft features to your car, you should get a discount. Other things that can enable a driver to be eligible for hefty discounts include having low mileage ( a given on new cars), being a good driver – meaning not having had any accidents or speeding violations in the past six months or longer, being a good student in the case of minors, taking a defensive driving course or a driver education course, and parking in a “safe” area overnight or during working hours. Of course, in many cases, it is the driver’s responsibility to bring these discounts up to the provider, so don’t be afraid to take that first step toward getting the discounts you need and deserve.

So, when driving a brand new car with a high value, you know your insurance rates will likely be higher than you would like. If you’re proactive, however, about becoming eligible for discounts and then following through to make sure you receive them, you can end up saving a lot on automobile insurance, enabling you to better enjoy your brand new car.




How to Save On Your Auto Insurance Premiums When You Are Learning to Drive






If you’re a brand new driver, still in the learning process, then you’re likely worried about how much you can expect to pay for your automobile insurance premium. While it is true that insurance premiums can be quite a bit higher for inexperienced drivers, the good news is that there are things that you can do to help lower these premiums. One option, of course, for young minor drivers is to wait until they are eighteen to get their licenses. This will significantly lower automobile insurance rates. Of course, most people don’t want to wait that long and if you’re one of them, you can still start driving today without spending a fortune.

First and foremost, you need to find a good automobile insurance provider, preferably one that offers many discounts to its customers and that has special programs for minors or new drivers. Finding such a provider is easy, as long as the driver is willing to do a bit of research and to take the time to make a fully informed decision. This is the first and most important step in securing affordable automobile insurance, and time should be taken with it.

Once you have a good provider, it’s time to start figuring out which discounts you are eligible for. If you are still in school, either high school or college, and have an A or B average, you may qualify for a “good student” discount, which can actually be quite hefty. If you don’t, then start working to get those grades up right away; insurance discounts are only a report card away. You can also save money by opting to take approved driver education courses, above and beyond what is offered in the schools, or by taking a defensive driving course. Installing safety features and/or anti-theft features on your car can also help you to save money.

One of the biggest (and most expensive!) mistakes new drivers make is purchasing a brand new car. In general, the newer a car, the more it will cost to insure. So, the high insurance rates for a new car compounded with the high insurance rates for a new driver simply do not mix. Plus, you’re likely to get into an accident during your first few years of driving, and it’s best if you have a car that won’t be too much of a loss if this happens. Though it might not sound too fun, opting for an older car, at least for the first few years of driving, is a smart idea.

Finally, new drivers can take heart in the fact that, the more experience they gain, the lower their rate will be. Whenever an insurance renewal period comes up, during which the driver has had no accidents or speeding violations, the policy will be adjusted accordingly. So, you are basically awarded for the experience you gain and for your own safe driving. All it takes is a little time and effort, and those rates will be completely manageable!




Cheap Crossover Car Insurance






You may have heard the rumors that crossovers are unbelievably expensive to insure. While it is true that crossovers, especially if they are new, can come with a bit higher than average insurance rates, there are things that you can do to effectively lower these costs. The first and most important, of course, is to find the right provider. This is a bit harder than it sounds and will require some effort on your part. If you’re willing to put it in, however, you can find a reliable, dependable automobile insurance provider who puts your needs first and always keeps the customer’s best interest at heart.

To find a good provider, you’ll need to do more than just flip open the local phone book and start calling random companies and asking for rate quotes. Your first step should be to get in touch with the department of transportation or its equivalent in your area to ask for a list of all licensed providers in your area. If a provider is not fully licensed in the state of residence, you won’t want anything to do with it. Getting this list is only the first step, however, in a long but worthwhile process.

Once the list is in your possession, it’s your job to research each of the providers on it. Start by visiting each provider’s website, taking note of which ones do or do not offer special insurance packages for owners of crossovers. Also take the time to read online client reviews, written by past or current clients, of each company. This research should help you to whittle down the choices until the list is much more manageable. Then, and only then, should you start calling around for rate quotes. Just be sure that you aren’t just comparing price to price. Also think about the type of coverage offered, how useful the coverage is and/or how tailored it is to a crossover’s unique needs, and how you feel about the company in general. This information will help you to make an informed decision.

Before you make your final choice, you should know of some very important discounts that can help owners of crossovers to save on insurance rates. These discounts are not offered by all providers, so if you qualify for one or plan to qualify for one, you’ll want to be sure you’re going with a provider who will give you the discounts you deserve. First and foremost, almost all new crossovers come with excellent standard safety features, made even better if you choose to add on the extras. These safety features can earn you a big discount; the more features you have, the bigger the discount for which you are eligible. So, finding a provider that honors this particular discount is especially important. Fortunately, most of them do.

Other discounts that are helpful to owners of crossovers include anti-theft discounts; low mileage discounts  – ideal for those who have purchased a new or barely used crossover; and good driver discounts for drivers who have not had an accident or a speeding violation within a set time as determined by the provider. Whenever you don’t qualify for a discount, try and find a way to do so. If you are not a “good driver” for example, you can still qualify for this discount by opting to take a driver education course, such as a defensive driving course. Educate yourself on all of your options and then do whatever work you have to in order to save. Your wallet will thank you big time in the long run.

Owning a crossover doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but it’s up to you to do the work it takes to find the right provider and then to go out and find discounts for which you qualify or for which you can qualify. If you’re willing to do this, then you should enjoy owning a crossover and, unlike many drivers, will be able to enjoy all of its great benefits instead of just griping over the cost of insurance. After all, crossovers are great, safe cars, capable of taking you and your family anywhere, and you should be able to own one without stressing over insurance costs.




Honda Civic GX Car Insurance






The Honda Civic GX is a new, natural gas vehicle that is a pleasure to own and to drive. Despite the vehicle being a newer model, it is relatively cheap to insure, as long as the driver has a good, fair provider that offers many opportunities for discounts. The reason this is so important is because the Honda Civic GX qualifies for many different money saving discounts that, when combined, equal humungous savings on automobile insurance. In fact, drivers won’t pay anywhere near the rate others pay for new car insurance if they are proactive about getting all of the discounts for which the car qualifies.

First and foremost, because the car uses natural gas, it is much better for the environment. In the past, insurance discounts were only offered to owners of hybrid cars, but lately insurance providers are rewarding anyone who takes an environmentally friendly step in the right direction. Therefore, drivers will want to be sure to ask their providers about receiving a “green” discount. Even if a particular provider doesn’t offer this discount, there is still reason to hold out hope, since more and more providers are honoring this beneficial choice.

In addition to being eligible for a green discount, the Honda Civic GX also has many safety features that qualify it for some serious safety discounts. These include advanced compatibility engineering, anti lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, daytime running lights, front seat active head restraints, dual stage multiple threshold front seat airbags, three point seatbelts with automatic tensioning, front side airbags, outward rear seat lower anchors with tethers for small children, side curtain airbags, and a tire pressure monitoring system. All of these features come standard with the Honda Civic GX, meaning you can increase your discounts further by choosing to add on additional safety features. Additional features available include door edge guards, car covers, half and full nose masks, fog lights, and more.

In addition to the discounts for which this car automatically qualifies, drivers can also earn discounts for adding on anti-theft features and for having low mileage, a given if the car is purchased new. Plus, certain good behaviors can qualify a driver for discounts as well. This includes being a good driver – meaning not being involved in an accident or speeding infraction for at least six months, having multiple insurance policies with the same provider, paying insurance on time, and more. The best way to find out about these discounts is to talk with a representative or, better yet, for the driver to do the research on his or her own. That way, there is no missing out on discounts, even when dealing with a shady provider.

Drivers of the new Honda Civic GX can be proud and feel good about their vehicle, not just because it is saving them money on automobile insurance, but also because it is helping to protect the earth, and the driver as well.  After all, nothing could be more important than that.




Toyota Truck Auto Insurance






If you’ve recently purchased a new or used Toyota truck or are thinking of doing so, you might be wondering how this will affect your automobile insurance costs. The good news is, if you’ve been driving a standard sized car, trucks are generally cheaper to insure with most providers. This is simply because trucks are thought to be safer and thus less likely to be involved in or to cause an accident in which serious damages or injuries are sustained. Trucks sit higher up than standard sized cars, offering the driver a better vantage point than other drivers on the road. Plus, trucks are simply larger and tend to hold up better in the event of an accident.

When making the switch to driving and insuring a truck, you will want to add on as many safety features as possible for lower insurance rates. Most newer Toyotas come standard with basic safety features, such as air bags, but you can save money by adding on extras like a rearview camera and side or driver’s knee airbags. Not only will these features keep you safer, but they will also qualify you for certain discounts if you go with the right provider.

The best provider is, as mentioned above, a provider who offers discounts to responsible drivers with responsible vehicles. A good provider should also have special programs for truck owners, helping them to get the most useful and affordable insurance for their automobiles. Drivers of trucks have different needs than drivers of standard sized cars, and the insurance policy should reflect this. A good provider will be knowledgeable about the differences between trucks and cars and should help to educate the driver and help him or her to find the best deal and, more importantly, the best possible coverage in the event of an accident.

Of course, it is also up to the driver to research and to know what a particular Toyota truck should have in terms of insurance. Trucks, for example, are more likely to rollover in the event of an accident, so insurance that would cover damages sustained from a rollover is necessary. If a driver knows this ahead of time, he or she is less likely to get swindled into purchasing a policy that doesn’t offer adequate protection. The best thing to do is to read up on the particular Toyota the driver is thinking of owning or already owning, gathering as much information as possible about common accidents or problems experienced with the vehicle. That way, the insurance is sure to be tailored to the automobile’s particular needs.

It is also important to note that only licensed insurance providers should be used. A list of licensed providers in the driver’s area can be obtained by contacting the state department of transportation or its equivalent. From this list, drivers will want to research each company, noting what special policies they offer to truck owners. It is also a good idea to read online client reviews of each insurance provider, marking off those that have overwhelmingly negative reviews or that are known for dubious business practices.

When the list is narrowed down, all the driver has to do is to start contacting each remaining company for a free quote. These quotes can be obtained online or over the phone in most cases, though some smaller companies may require an in person visit. A small company, however, doesn’t necessarily mean a bad company, so all providers should be given a fair chance. When it comes time to compare rate quotes, drivers must be sure that they are not just looking at the price to make their decision. The amount of coverage offered, level of customer service, company accessibility, discounts offered, and usefulness of the policy in terms of the driver’s research are also important factors to consider, perhaps even more important than the cost. When a driver makes his or her decision based on all of these factors, the driver is much more likely to end up with a policy that is affordable but that also provides real protection for the Toyota truck owner in the event of an accident. After all, there’s no sense in having a cheap policy that doesn’t offer any real protection.




6 Reasons You Are Paying Too Much For Your Car Insurance In 2011






A lot of people overpay for their automobile insurance without ever realizing it. In fact, to some people, it’s not even a big deal – not something they really give a second thought. When you think about it, though, the average person will be paying car insurance for fifty years!

That’s quite a long time, and if you overpay for all fifty of those years, think of how much money you’ll lose out on in the long run. In order to stop overpaying for automobile insurance, you first need to figure out why you are overpaying. Thus, we’ve compiled the six most common reasons people pay too much for their 2011 automobile insurance:

1. Hasty Decisions: The number one reason people pay too much for their automobile insurance is simply because they didn’t put in the necessary time and effort it takes to find a good provider and an affordable policy. If you’re like most people, you probably just called up the first provider you found and set up automobile insurance in a hurry.

This, however, is a huge mistake. In order to get the best and most affordable insurance, you have to devote time to the process. First, get a list of all the licensed insurance providers in your area from the state transportation department or its equivalent. Then, narrow that list by reading online reviews written by past or current clients of the provider and by checking out the website and general company reputation.

Then, from your newly narrowed list, request free rate quotes from each provider and take the time to compare them thoroughly before making a decision. Remember that price isn’t the only factor you should consider; level of coverage, customer service, company accessibility, and other factors are also important.

2. The Bare Minimum: A lot of people think that they can save money by simply choosing a policy that just barely meets the minimum automobile insurance requirements for the state. The truth of the matter is that these policies don’t really save you money in the long run.

In fact, they are a surefire way to overpay for insurance that is virtually useless to you in the event of an accident. When you have insurance that doesn’t really offer you coverage, you’re basically paying for nothing, and you’ll be all alone in the event of an accident. So, make sure your coverage is actually worth paying for.

3. Being a Snob: A lot of people end up paying more than they have to for auto insurance, simply because they refuse to consider any provider except for the major ones like GEICO, All State, Progressive, and others. While many of these companies are good, those who live in towns with smaller, more local providers may be able to get an even better deal.

Smaller companies often offer excellent, affordable rates in an effort to try and compete with the competition. If you pass them over just because they’re not a giant company, you could end up paying a lot more than you should.

4. Missing out on Discounts: One of the biggest reasons people overpay is because they simply don’t know that certain discounts are available to them or because they have gone with a provider that does not offer the discounts.

If you are a good driver, meaning you haven’t had any accidents or traffic violations in the last year; if you’re a minor with good grades; if you have safety or anti-theft features on your car; if you drive a hybrid; and if you have a car with low mileage, all of these things and others can earn you a discount with the right provider. Sometimes, however, it is up to you to ask your provider about discounts, so don’t be afraid to speak up.

5. Past Mistakes: If you’ve gotten speeding tickets or been in a wreck recently, your insurance probably shot through the roof. You might have thought this was just something you were stuck dealing with, but that’s not the case at all.

Talk to your insurance provider about what you can do to lower rates. Sometimes, just having a birthday, and leaving a certain “at risk” age range can help. Other times, taking a defensive driving course or some other form of driver training will be helpful.

6. Getting Stuck in Your Ways: If you’ve had the same insurance provider for years, chances are you’re overpaying. Even if you’re not, you’d never know it unless you take the time to check.

It is very important that no driver gets “stuck in his or her ways,” meaning that he or she keeps the same policy and pays the same rate for years at a time. Instead, it is important to periodically compare rates and go through the search process once again, just to make sure that great deal is still great.




GEICO Insurance for Used Vehicles






When people buy used cars, they often wonder if they will be able to get insurance for their vehicles through one of the bigger agencies, such as GEICO. The answer to this question is yes. GEICO does insure used cars, as do All State, Progressive, and many of the other “big name” insurance companies.  A lot of people assume that if they go with one of these larger companies, they’ll get the best deal possible, so they don’t bother to look anywhere else. The truth of the matter, however, is that while GEICO and other providers may be competitively priced, they may not be the best choice for your specific needs, especially as a used car driver.

Used cars are often more expensive to insure, simply because they run a higher risk of breaking down unexpectedly and causing an accident. So, used car owners need to be especially selective when they find an automobile insurance provider. They will want one that does not treat used car owners like second-class citizens and that provides affordable coverage for their automobile. The only way to find the best provider, then, is to spend some time searching and, more importantly, researching!

Even if you have your heart set on GEICO or one of the other major providers, it’s a good idea to take into consideration all the licensed providers in your area. Sometimes, smaller, local providers will offer great discounts and excellent customer service in the hopes of keeping up with the competition. These smaller companies are also known for having better rates for used car owners. Just spend some time reading up on each different provider in your area. Make sure you check out online client reviews and visit the websites of a wide variety of providers. As you do this research, you can start to narrow your list down, making your search more manageable.

Once you have limited your choices to a few providers, hopefully a mix of both major companies and smaller companies, you can begin requesting free rate quotes from each provider. Most insurance companies will let you do this on the phone or even online, though some will require an in-person visit. Any policy regarding rate quotes is acceptable, as long as a company doesn’t try to charge you for the quote. If a provider does this, it is a big red flag and that company should be avoided altogether.

When you have your rate quotes, spend some time comparing and listing the pros and cons of going with each company. Don’t just pay attention to price either, but to other factors, such as the level of service and claims handling efficiency. GEICO, for example, is known for providing excellent customer service but for being a little on the slow side when it comes to handling claims, meaning you’d have to decide which faults are worth it and which positives you can’t live without. The important thing is simply to find the right fit for you, whether it be GEICO or not.




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.




Chevrolet Equinox Car Insurance

The best insurance companies want their clients to save money and make every effort to help them to do so. Not offering such discounts is a good indication that an insurance provider is just trying to suck as much money from you as possible, without regards to your satisfaction.

Most offer low mileage discounts as well as discounts for drivers of environmentally friendly vehicles. In fact, some will even offer up the hybrid car discount, since this automobile performs even better than hybrid cars. Just have a conversation with your insurance provider about the discounts for which you and your new car qualify.

For these reasons and many others, such as a beautiful exterior and interior and state of the art technology even down to the pre-installed radio, you simply can’t go wrong with the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox.
