Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Indiana minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, safe-driver, multi-policy, homeowner, and multi-vehicle. Rate information does not factor in vehicle garaging location which can influence auto insurance rates considerably.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible would cost the average driver about $14 more each month or $168 annually than buying the higher $500 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $250 more if you file a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you go at a minimum 18 months between claim filings, you would save more money going with the higher deductible.

How accidents and tickets impact rates in Fort Wayne

The information below demonstrates how traffic citations and at-fault claims can impact GMC Sierra 2500HD premium costs for different categories of driver ages. The rates are based on a single female driver, full coverage, $100 deductibles, and no discounts are applied.

Full coverage rates compared to liability-only

The example below shows the difference between GMC Sierra 2500HD annual premium costs with full coverage and liability only. The premium estimates are based on no accidents or driving violations, $250 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to drop comprehensive and collision

There is no clear-cut rule to stop buying physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of coverage is about 10% or more of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let's assume your GMC Sierra 2500HD settlement value is $8,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would receive is $7,000 after you pay the deductible. If it's costing you more than $700 annually to have full coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.

There are some conditions where eliminating full coverage is not financially feasible. If you still owe a portion of the original loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage as part of the loan conditions. Also, if you don't have enough money to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.

Buying from car insurance agents

Some consumers just prefer to sit down with an agent and doing so can bring peace of mind Agents can make sure you are properly covered and will help you if you have claims. The biggest benefit of comparing auto insurance online is the fact that you can find better rates but also keep your business local. And providing support for local agencies is still important in Fort Wayne.

For easy comparison, once you complete this short form, your insurance data gets sent to agents in your area who will give competitive quotes for your business. There is no need to contact an agency as quotes are delivered to your email. If you need to get a price quote from a specific insurance company, you would need to jump over to their website and submit a quote form there.

Compare rates from both independent and exclusive auto insurance agents

If you want to use a good insurance agency, it can be helpful to understand the types of agencies and how they are distinctly different. Auto insurance agencies can either be exclusive or independent (non-exclusive). Both write policy coverage, but it is important to understand the difference in how they write coverage since it can impact which type of agent you select.

Independent Auto Insurance Agencies or Brokers

Agents in the independent channel are not employed by any specific company so they can write business amongst many companies and get you the best rates possible. If they find a lower price, they simply move the coverage in-house and you stay with the same agent.

When comparing rate quotes, we highly recommend that you get quotes from at a minimum one independent agency for the best price selection.

Learn How to Lower Your Insurance Rates

Consumers need to have an understanding of the different types of things that play a part in calculating your premiums. If you have some idea of what controls the rates you pay, this allows you to make good choices that may reward you with better insurance rates.

The items below are some of the factors used by companies to determine your premiums.

  • What are good liability protection limits? - The liability section of your policy will provide protection in the event that you are found to be at fault for personal injury or accident damage. This coverage provides legal defense to defend your case. This coverage is very inexpensive compared to other policy coverages, so drivers should carry high limits.
  • Bundle policies to earn discounts - Many insurers give a discount to policyholders who carry more than one policy in the form of a multi-policy discount. This can amount to ten percent or more. Even with this discount, you still need to compare other Fort Wayne Sierra 2500HD insurance rates to ensure the best deal.
  • Don't cancel your coverage without a new one in place - Driving any period of time without insurance is illegal and you will pay a penalty because you let your coverage have a gap. Not only will you pay more, getting caught without coverage will get you a fine, jail time, or a revoked license. You may have to file a SR-22 with the Indiana department of motor vehicles.
  • Having a spouse is a good thing - Your spouse may cut your premiums on insurance. Having a significant other translates into being less irresponsible and it's statistically proven that drivers who are married are more cautious.
  • Older drivers are lower risk - Inexperience drivers are statistically shown to get distracted easily when driving with friends so insurance rates are higher. Having to add a young driver to your insurance policy can be very expensive. Mature drivers tend to be more responsible, file fewer claims, and receive fewer citations.

    The following data is based on a single driver, full coverage with $250 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

Why you need to buy insurance

Despite the potentially high cost of GMC Sierra 2500HD insurance, insurance serves a purpose in several ways.

First, most states have mandatory liability insurance requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry specific minimum amounts of liability coverage in order to drive the car. In Indiana these limits are 25/50/10 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 of property damage coverage.

Second, if your Sierra 2500HD has a lienholder, most banks will force you to buy insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you let the policy lapse, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your GMC at a more expensive rate and require you to reimburse them for the expensive policy.

Third, insurance safeguards your GMC and your assets. It will also reimburse you for medical bills for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. One of the most valuable coverages, liability insurance, will also pay attorney fees if you are sued as the result of an accident. If your GMC gets damaged, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.

The benefits of buying insurance definitely exceed the cost, especially if you ever need it. As of last year, the average driver in Indiana is overpaying more than $850 per year so we recommend shopping around at every renewal to save money.

You can find cheap coverage

When searching for affordable Fort Wayne car insurance quotes, you should never reduce needed coverages to save money. Too many times, an accident victim reduced liability limits or collision coverage and learned later that the savings was not a smart move. Your goal is to purchase a proper amount of coverage for the lowest cost but still have enough coverage for asset protection.

Some insurance providers don't offer the ability to get a quote online and many times these small insurance companies provide coverage only through independent agents. Lower-priced GMC Sierra 2500HD insurance in Fort Wayne is definitely available both online in addition to many Fort Wayne insurance agents, and you need to comparison shop both in order to have the best chance of saving money.
