Protect your LX 570 and other assets

Despite the high cost of buying insurance for a Lexus LX 570 in Plano, insuring your vehicle may be required for several reasons.

  • Almost all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to buy a specific minimum amount of liability protection in order to drive the car 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, almost all lenders will have a requirement that you buy insurance to protect their interest in the vehicle. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the lender may insure your Lexus at a more expensive rate and make you pay for it.
  • Insurance safeguards your Lexus and your assets. It will also cover many types of medical costs that are the result of an accident. One policy coverage, liability insurance, will also pay to defend you if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you have damage to your Lexus as the result of the weather or an accident, comprehensive and collision coverage will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of insuring your LX 570 greatly outweigh the cost, particularly if you ever have a claim. According to a survey of 1,000 drivers, the average driver overpays as much as $825 a year so it's important to compare rates once a year at a minimum to ensure rates are competitive.

What type of Plano car insurance agent is right for you?

Car insurance agencies can be classified as either exclusive or independent (non-exclusive). Either one can sell and service car insurance coverage, but it's important to know how they are different because it can factor into which type of agent you select.

Exclusive Car Insurance Agents

Exclusive agencies can only write with one company such as State Farm, AAA, Farmers Insurance or Allstate. Exclusive agents are unable to shop your coverage around so you might not find the best rates. Exclusive insurance agents are usually quite knowledgeable on the products they sell which aids in selling service over price. Some people will only buy from the same agent for years primarily because of the brand legacy rather than having low rates.

  • Do I pay less for low miles?

  • Who is covered by my policy?
  • Do I need an umbrella policy?

Parts of your car insurance policy

Having a good grasp of your policy aids in choosing appropriate coverage for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision)

This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from getting keyed, fire damage and hitting a deer. The maximum payout your car insurance company will pay is the market value of your vehicle, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible it's not worth carrying full coverage.

Insurance for medical payments

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage reimburse you for bills for things like nursing services, rehabilitation expenses and X-ray expenses. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to all vehicle occupants in addition to being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible

Liability car insurance

Liability insurance will cover damage that occurs to other people or property in an accident. It consists of three limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 30/60/25 that translate to $30,000 bodily injury coverage, $60,000 for the entire accident, and a total limit of $25,000 for damage to vehicles and property.

Liability coverage pays for things such as medical expenses, attorney fees, pain and suffering and bail bonds. How much liability should you purchase? That is your choice, but it's cheap coverage so purchase as large an amount as possible. Texas state minimum liability requirements are 30/60/25 but it's recommended drivers buy more coverage.

The chart below shows why low liability limits may not provide you with enough coverage.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance

This provides protection when other motorists either have no liability insurance or not enough. It can pay for hospital bills for your injuries as well as your vehicle's damage.

Due to the fact that many Texas drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (30/60/25 in Texas), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is a good idea.

Collision coverage

This will pay to fix damage to your LX 570 resulting from a collision with another car or object. You will need to pay your deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision can pay for claims like crashing into a building, hitting a parking meter and crashing into a ditch. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to increase the deductible on your LX 570 to save money on collision insurance.

Persistence will pay off

When searching for inexpensive Plano auto insurance quotes, never skimp on coverage in order to save money. There are a lot of situations where an insured cut liability limits or collision coverage only to discover later that they should have had better coverage. Your goal should be to purchase plenty of coverage at the best price, not the least amount of coverage.

Budget-conscious Lexus LX 570 insurance is possible both online and with local Plano insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance companies may not have the ability to get quotes online and usually these smaller providers sell through local independent agents.

People switch companies for a number of reasons such as high prices, extreme rates for teen drivers, high rates after DUI convictions or an unsatisfactory settlement offer. Whatever your reason, choosing a new insurance company is easier than you think.
