Remarkably, a study showed that a large majority of drivers have bought auto insurance from the same company for well over three years, and virtually 40% of consumers have never compared rates to find cheap insurance. Consumers in Fort Worth can save hundreds of dollars each year by just comparing quotes, but most just don't grasp how much money they would save if they switched.
If saving the most money is your goal, then the best way to get low-cost car insurance rates is to make a habit of regularly comparing prices from providers who provide auto insurance in Fort Worth.
- Step 1: Read about what coverages are included in your policy and the measures you can take to prevent expensive coverage. Many risk factors that cause rate increases such as high-risk driving behaviors and a not-so-good credit rating can be improved by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes. Read the full article for additional tips to help prevent high rates and get discounts that may be overlooked.
- Step 2: Quote rates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive agents and direct companies can only give prices from a single company like GEICO and State Farm, while independent agencies can quote rates for a wide range of companies.
- Step 3: Compare the new rate quotes to your current policy and see if there is a cheaper rate. If you find a lower rate quote and buy the policy, ensure there is no coverage lapse between policies.
- Step 4: Notify your current company to cancel your current coverage. Submit any necessary down payment along with the completed application to the new company. Don't forget to keep the new certificate verifying proof of insurance with the vehicle registration.
The key thing to know about shopping around is to try to compare identical coverages on every quote request and and to get price quotes from as many companies as you can. Doing this guarantees an apples-to-apples comparison and a complete price analysis.

Car insurance policy specifics
Learning about specific coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the best coverages for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.
Liability auto insurance - Liability coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property in an accident. This coverage protects you against claims from other people. Liability doesn't cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 30/60/25 which means $30,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $60,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability coverage pays for things like attorney fees, bail bonds, funeral expenses and repair costs for stationary objects. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but buy as large an amount as possible. Texas requires drivers to carry at least 30/60/25 but it's recommended drivers buy more liability than the minimum.
The next chart demonstrates why the minimum limit may not be high enough to cover claims.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) - Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses for ambulance fees, hospital visits, EMT expenses, X-ray expenses and nursing services. They are often used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover all vehicle occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) - This protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries sustained by your vehicle's occupants as well as your vehicle's damage.
Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (which is 30/60/25), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Comprehensive insurance - Comprehensive insurance covers damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.
Comprehensive coverage protects against things like falling objects, a broken windshield and hitting a deer. The most your car insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider removing comprehensive coverage.
Collision coverage - This pays for damage to your Mirage caused by collision with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers things like rolling your car, hitting a parking meter and driving through your garage door. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. Another option is to bump up the deductible on your Mirage to get cheaper collision coverage.
