The recommended way to get budget auto insurance rates is to compare prices regularly from insurance carriers who can sell car insurance in Plano.

  • Step 1: Spend a few minutes and learn about the coverage provided by your policy and the measures you can take to prevent expensive coverage. Many policy risk factors that drive up the price such as at-fault accidents and a negative credit rating can be improved by paying attention to minor details. This article provides ideas to prevent expensive rate increases and find discounts that you may qualify for.
  • Step 2: Request price quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can only provide price estimates from a single company like GEICO and State Farm, while agents who are independent can quote rates for many different companies.
  • Step 3: Compare the new quotes to the premium of your current policy and determine if there is any savings. If you find a lower rate quote and decide to switch, make sure there is no lapse between the expiration of your current policy and the new one.

One important bit of advice is to make sure you're comparing the same physical damage deductibles and liability limits on every price quote and and to get rates from as many auto insurance providers as possible. Doing this helps ensure a level playing field and the best price quote selection.

Prices above based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Texas minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include safe-driver, multi-policy, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and claim-free. Price estimates do not factor in the specific area where the vehicle is garaged which can lower or raise prices substantially.

Based on these figures, using a $100 deductible would cost the average driver about $43 more each month or $516 a year than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $900 more out of your own pocket with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you normally go at least 21 months between claims, you would save money if you choose the higher deductible.

How to determine if a higher deductible is a good idea

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $145
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $102
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $43
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $43
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 21 months

One big caveat is that increasing deductibles to save money means you pay more out-of-pocket when you have to file a claim. You should have enough savings in the event you have to pay more to get your vehicle repaired.

The information below illustrates how choosing a deductible and can impact Chevy Avalanche insurance costs for different age categories. The rates are based on a married male driver, full physical damage coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Reckless driving habits raise Plano car insurance rates

The chart below illustrates how violations and accident claims can drive up Chevy Avalanche car insurance rates for different insured age categories. The rate quotes are based on a single male driver, comp and collision included, $100 deductibles, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Full coverage or liability only

The chart below illustrates the difference between Chevy Avalanche insurance prices with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Texas. The costs are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $250 deductibles, marital status is single, and no policy discounts are applied.

When to eliminate full coverage

There is no set rule for eliminating comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can use. If the annual cost of comprehensive and collision coverage is more than about 10% of the vehicle's replacement cost less your deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's say your Chevy Avalanche replacement cost is $3,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most your company will settle for is $2,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are paying in excess of $200 annually for full coverage, then it may be the right time to buy liability only.

There are some circumstances where removing full coverage is not a good idea. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you are required to maintain full coverage in order to prevent the bank from purchasing higher-priced coverage. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not remove full coverage.

Why you need quality insurance for your Chevy vehicle

Despite the fact that auto insurance is not cheap in Plano, buying auto insurance may be mandatory for several reasons.

  • Almost all states have minimum liability requirements which means it is punishable by state law to not carry a specific level of liability if you don't want to risk a ticket. 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 took out a loan on your Avalanche, most banks will make it mandatory that you buy full coverage to ensure the loan is repaid in case of a total loss. If coverage lapses or is canceled, the bank may insure your Chevy at a significantly higher premium and force you to reimburse them for the expensive policy.
  • Insurance protects not only your car but also your financial assets. It also can pay for medical transport and hospital expenses for you, your passengers, and anyone else injured in an accident. Liability coverage also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you cause an accident and are sued. If mother nature or an accident damages your car, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will cover the repair costs.

The benefits of insuring your car more than cancel out the cost, especially with large liability claims. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver is currently overpaying as much as $865 each year so it's important to compare rates each time the policy renews to help ensure money is not being wasted.

What Affects Chevy Avalanche Insurance Prices?

Many things are part of the equation when you quote your car insurance policy. Some factors are common sense like a motor vehicle report, but other factors are not quite as obvious such as your credit history or your financial responsibility.

  • Use one insurance company and save - Most major insurance companies apply lower prices to people who buy several policies from them. It's known as a multi-policy discount. Even if you qualify for this discount already, it's always a smart idea to shop around to verify if the discount is saving money.There is a chance you can find better rates by buying from different companies
  • How old are your drivers? - Older drivers are more cautious drivers, are lower risk to insure, and receive fewer citations. Drivers with little experience are proven to be more careless when behind the wheel so insurance rates are higher.

    The following chart uses these assumptions: single driver, full coverage with $1000 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.

  • Where you live - Residing in small towns and rural areas is a good thing when it comes to insurance. Lower population means fewer accidents in addition to lower liability claims. People who live in big cities regularly have more aggressive driving styles and more time behind the wheel. Spending more time driving statistically corresponds to a higher accident and claim rate.
  • Your gender affects premiums - Statistics show women tend to be less risk to insure than men. That doesn't necessarily mean that men are WORSE drivers than women. Women and men cause accidents in similar percentages, but guys tend to have higher claims. Men also tend to get higher numbers of serious violations like DUI and reckless driving.

    The information below compares Chevy Avalanche insurance premiums for male and female drivers. The prices are based on no claims or violations, comprehensive and collision coverage, $500 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no policy discounts are applied.

  • Prices go up with performance - The make and model of the vehicle you own makes a huge difference in your premium level. The lowest performance passenger cars generally have the cheapest insurance rates, but the final cost of insurance is determined by many other factors.

    The next chart uses these variables: single female driver age 30, full coverage with $1000 deductibles, and no discounts or violations. It compares Chevrolet Avalanche insurance rates compared to other makes and models that have different performances.

  • Prevent insurance lapses - Driving without insurance coverage in place is a big no-no and any future policy may cost more because you let your insurance expire. And not only will insurance be more expensive, failure to provide proof of insurance can result in a fine, jail time, or a revoked license. You will then be forced to file a SR-22 with the Texas motor vehicle department to get your license reinstated.
  • Your car's features help determine rates - Driving a car with a theft deterrent system can help lower your premiums. Anti-theft devices such as GM's OnStar, tamper alarm systems and vehicle immobilizers all aid in stopping your vehicle from being stolen.
  • Is you employer costing you more? - Did you know your insurance rates can be affected by your occupation? Occupational choices like military personnel, social workers, and accountants generally pay higher rates than the rest of us because of intense work situations and extremely grueling work hours. On the flip side, professions such as scientists, students and retirees pay lower than average rates.
