It's a fact that car insurance companies want to keep you from comparing rates. Drivers who shop around for cheaper prices are highly likely to buy a new policy because there is a great chance of finding lower prices. A recent survey found that consumers who compared rates annually saved over $70 a month as compared to drivers who never shopped for cheaper rates.
If finding the cheapest rates on Land Rover Range Rover insurance in Fort Worth is why you're here, then knowing how to quote and compare insurance can help simplify the process.
It takes a little time, but the best way to quote cheaper car insurance rates is to regularly compare price quotes from different companies who sell insurance in Fort Worth. Prices can be compared by following these guidelines.
- First, get an understanding of how companies set rates and the changes you can make to lower rates. Many things that increase rates such as traffic violations, accidents, and a low credit score can be eliminated by making minor changes in your lifestyle.
- Second, request rate estimates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can give quotes from a single company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while agents who are independent can give you price quotes for many different companies.
- Third, compare the new quotes to your existing rates to see if switching to a new carrier will save money. If you find a lower rate quote and switch companies, verify that coverage does not lapse between policies.
- Fourth, provide written notification to your current company of your intention to cancel your current auto insurance policy. Submit the completed application along with a down payment to the new company. Don't forget to safely store the proof of insurance paperwork with your vehicle's registration.
An important note is to make sure you enter identical deductibles and limits on each price quote and and to get prices from as many car insurance companies as possible. This guarantees a fair price comparison and plenty of rates choose from.

Three reasons car insurance is important
Even though it can be expensive, insurance may be mandatory for several reasons.
- Just about all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means you are required to buy a specific level of liability insurance coverage if you want to drive legally. In Texas these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If you have a lien on your vehicle, most banks will have a requirement that you have full coverage to guarantee payment of the loan. If you default on your policy, the bank may buy a policy for your Land Rover for a much higher rate and force you to reimburse them the higher premium.
- Car insurance preserves your car and your assets. It will also provide coverage for most medical and hospital costs for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, will also pay for a defense attorney if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, comprehensive and/or collision insurance will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of insuring your car definitely exceed the price paid, especially with large liability claims. The average driver in America is overpaying over $820 a year so compare quotes from several companies at every renewal to ensure rates are inline.

Specifics of your insurance policy
Understanding the coverages of your insurance policy can help you determine appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be difficult to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring. Shown next are typical coverage types offered by insurance companies.
Liability coverages - This coverage will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.
Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. Your policy might show limits of 30/60/25 which stand for a $30,000 limit per person for injuries, a limit of $60,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have one number which is a combined single limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability insurance covers claims such as medical services, repair costs for stationary objects, pain and suffering and medical expenses. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but consider buying higher limits if possible. Texas state law requires minimum liability limits of 30/60/25 but it's recommended drivers buy more coverage.
The illustration below shows why buying low liability limits may not be adequate.
Comprehensive coverage - Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as a broken windshield, damage from flooding and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Medical payments coverage and PIP - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage kick in for bills for things like funeral costs, ambulance fees, X-ray expenses and nursing services. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. They cover both the driver and occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP is not universally available but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Collision - This coverage pays for damage to your Range Rover caused by collision with another vehicle or an object, but not an animal. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision can pay for things such as damaging your car on a curb, crashing into a ditch and colliding with another moving vehicle. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also increase the deductible on your Range Rover to bring the cost down.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage - This gives you protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. Covered claims include medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Land Rover Range Rover.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (30/60/25 in Texas), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage is a good idea. Most of the time these coverages do not exceed the liability coverage limits.
