Data rating is based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Nebraska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, safe-driver, and claim-free. Table data does not factor in Omaha location which can increase or decrease coverage rates greatly.

Using the data above, we can ascertain that using a $100 deductible costs about $34 more each month or $408 a year across all Chevrolet Avalanche models than selecting the higher $1,000 deductible. Since you would have to pay $900 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have more than 26 months between claims, you would save money if you elect the higher deductible.

Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $80
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $34

Omaha auto insurance agents come in two flavors

When researching a reliable insurance agent, there are two different types of agents that you can select. Car insurance agents can be categorized as either independent or exclusive depending on the company they work for. Either one can sell and service car insurance coverage, but it’s worth mentioning the subtle differences since it can affect which type of agent you select.

Independent Insurance Agents

Independent agencies are normally appointed by many insurers so they can quote policies with lots of companies enabling the ability to shop coverage around. If you want to switch companies, they simply move your policy to a different company which is easy for the insured. When shopping rates, you absolutely need to contact multiple independent agents so that you can do a thorough price comparison. They also have the ability to place coverage with companies you’ve never heard of that many times have cheaper rates.

Featured below is a small list of independent insurance agencies in Omaha that can possibly get you free car insurance rate quotes.

Exclusive Agents

Exclusive agencies can only provide pricing for a single company and some examples include Farmers Insurance, State Farm, Allstate, and AAA. These agents are not able to provide rate quotes from other companies so they have no alternatives for high prices. They are trained well on what they offer which helps them sell on service rather than price. Consumers sometimes use the same agent primarily because of the brand and strong financial ratings.

Shown below is a list of exclusive insurance agencies in Omaha willing to provide price quote information.

More insurance agents

Choosing the best auto insurance agent should depend on more than just a cheap price quote. Any good agent in Omaha should know the answers to these questions.

After receiving positive feedback to any questions you have and locked in a price quote, you may have found an insurance agency that meets the criteria to properly insure your vehicles. But keep in mind you can terminate your policy whenever you choose to so never assume that you are permanently stuck with any specific company for the entire policy term.

What car insurance coverages do you need?

Learning about specific coverages of your policy can help you determine which coverages you need at the best deductibles and correct limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Collision coverage protection

This pays for damage to your Avalanche resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision coverage pays for claims such as crashing into a ditch, scraping a guard rail and driving through your garage door. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider removing coverage from lower value vehicles. You can also bump up the deductible on your Avalanche in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Medical costs insurance

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for expenses like rehabilitation expenses, pain medications, chiropractic care and surgery. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance plan or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

UM/UIM Coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants as well as your vehicle’s damage.

Because many people only carry the minimum required liability limits (25/50/25), their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is very important. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liability limits.

Auto liability

Liability insurance provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on other people or property by causing an accident. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/25 that translate to a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability coverage pays for things like repair costs for stationary objects, emergency aid, medical services and attorney fees. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but buy as much as you can afford. Nebraska requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/25 but drivers should carry higher limits.

The chart below demonstrates why buying minimum limits may not provide adequate coverage.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims such as hitting a deer, vandalism, hail damage, theft and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Shop around and save

Insureds change insurance companies for any number of reasons including questionable increases in premium, being labeled a high risk driver, poor customer service and even policy non-renewal. Regardless of your reason, finding a great new company is not as difficult as it may seem.

Lower-priced car insurance in Omaha can be bought on the web and from local agencies, and you need to comparison shop both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some companies may not offer online quoting and usually these smaller companies work with independent insurance agents.

When buying insurance coverage, don’t be tempted to skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. Too many times, an insured cut comprehensive coverage or liability limits only to regret that it was a big error on their part. Your goal is to buy a smart amount of coverage at the best possible price while not skimping on critical coverages.
