The reason you want to be prepared is because you will want to get at least ten quotes before you decide on a company you want to go with. There are a few things you need to prepare and I will walk you through it right now.

1. Gather Your Information

To begin, you will need to have handy information in front of you so you can go from website to website and enter the same information so you are comparing apples to apples. The information you will need is the following:

a. Car year, make and model for each car you want to cover
b. If you are buying a car, make sure it is a cheap car to insure
c. Car features, like if it is a 4×4 or if it has a security system
d. Figure out how much you drive your car per year
e. How many drivers are in your household
f. Be aware of average car insurance rates and budget for it

2. Decide What Type Of Coverage You Need

There are several types of car insurance coverage you can select from and you will need to figure out which ones you need. Some types of insurance are mandatory in the United States and they vary from state to state so make sure you find out what insurance is required in your state. Here are the choices you will have:

a. Bodily Injury Liability – Mandatory in most states, it covers your liability in case of you inflict injuries to another person.
b. Property Damage – if you damage other people’s property or their car, this insurance will cover the repairs for that.
c. Collision – covers your car in the event of an accident and pays for repairs or replacement of the car no matter if it was your fault or not.
d. Comprehensive – pays for repairs or replacement of the car in case of any other damage is done to the car from natural disasters or vandalism.
e. Uninsured Motorist – covers your car if it is damaged in an accident and the other person had no or not enough insurance to cover it.

3. Decide How Much Coverage You Need

Each of the above insurance types has a maximum dollar amount that it will cover so you will need to figure out how much coverage you need to have in terms of dollar amount. Most states have a minimum liability coverage that you must have so you will need to have at least that.

4. How Much Deductible Can You Afford

Deductible is a dollar amount that you will be responsible for in the event of an accident. When all the damage has been assessed and a dollar figure has been determined, your deductible come in to effect and covers the first part of that total. If the total is less than your deductible, that means you get to pay for all of it. If there is anything left after the deductible is used up, the insurance covers the rest up until the maximum amount on your policy. Remember, the more you can take on as a deductible, the less your insurance premium will cost.
