How to buy affordable Jeep Patriot insurance in Newark

Truthfully, the best way to get discount Jeep Patriot insurance in Newark is to compare quotes once a year from providers who sell insurance in New Jersey. Prices can be compared by following these steps.

Step 2: Quote rates from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Exclusive and direct companies can give quotes from one company like GEICO and Allstate, while independent agents can provide rate quotes for many different companies.

Step 3: Compare the new rate quotes to your current policy premium and see if there is a cheaper rate in Newark. If you find a lower rate and buy the policy, make sure there is no lapse in coverage.

Step 4: Provide proper notification to your current company to cancel your current coverage and submit the application along with any required down payment to the new insurer. Don't forget to keep the new certificate of insurance in your vehicle's glove compartment or console.

One tip to remember is that you'll want to make sure you compare identical coverage information on each quote request and and to compare as many companies as you can. Doing this enables an apples-to-apples comparison and a good representation of prices.

Table data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, multi-policy, homeowner, safe-driver, and claim-free. Price estimates do not factor in specific location information which can modify premium rates noticeably.

We can estimate from the data above that using a $100 deductible costs approximately $44 more each month or $528 annually than choosing the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $900 more to file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you have at least 20 months between claims, you would probably come out ahead going with the higher deductible.

How to calculate if a higher deductible is a good decision

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $146
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $102
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $44
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $44
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 20 months

One important issue to know is that increasing deductibles to save money means you will have to pay more when you file a claim. That will force you to have some money saved in the event you have to pay the deductible to have repairs made.

Impact of violations and accidents on rates

The diagram below demonstrates how speeding tickets and at-fault claims can drive up Jeep Patriot premium costs for different insured age categories. The prices are based on a single male driver, full coverage, $250 deductibles, and no policy discounts are applied.

Cost of full coverage

The diagram below shows the difference between Jeep Patriot premium costs with and without physical damage coverage, medical payments, and uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage. The premiums assume no claims or violations, $100 deductibles, marital status is single, and no policy discounts are applied.

When to drop comprehensive and collision

There is no written rule to stop paying for physical damage insurance, but there is a broad guideline. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than around 10% of the replacement cost minus the deductible, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's pretend your Jeep Patriot book value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most you would get paid by your company is $5,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If it's costing you more than $500 a year for your policy with full coverage, then it's probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

There are some scenarios where dropping full coverage is not recommended. If you still owe money on your vehicle, you have to maintain full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your finances do not allow you to purchase a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not consider dropping full coverage.

Choosing the best Jeep Patriot insurance in New Jersey is an important decision

Despite the high cost, insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

  • The majority of states have minimum liability requirements which means you are required to carry specific limits of liability insurance if you drive a vehicle. In New Jersey these limits are 15/30/5 which means you must have $15,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If your Jeep Patriot has a loan, almost every bank will require you to buy full coverage to guarantee loan repayment. If you do not keep the policy in force, the bank will be required to insure your Jeep for a lot more money and require you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
  • Insurance protects not only your Jeep Patriot but also your assets. It will also reimburse you for medical transport and hospital expenses for yourself as well as anyone injured by you. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if anyone sues you for causing an accident. If your vehicle suffers damage from an accident or hail, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.

The benefits of having insurance more than offset the price you pay, especially if you ever need it. As of last year, the average driver in New Jersey is currently overpaying as much as $850 per year so shop around each time the policy renews to make sure the price is not too high.

Detailed coverages of your auto insurance policy

Understanding the coverages of your policy helps when choosing the right coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Liability

Liability insurance can cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property that is your fault. It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. As an example, you may have values of 15/30/5 which means $15,000 bodily injury coverage, $30,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $5,000.

Liability coverage pays for claims such as court costs, medical expenses, funeral expenses and structural damage. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but you should buy higher limits if possible. New Jersey state minimum liability requirements are 15/30/5 but you should consider buying more liability than the minimum.

The next chart demonstrates why low liability limits may not be high enough to adequately cover claims.

UM/UIM Coverage

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage provides protection from other drivers when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Jeep Patriot.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (15/30/5), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Collision protection

Collision coverage will pay to fix damage to your Patriot from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.

Collision coverage protects against claims such as hitting a parking meter, hitting a mailbox, colliding with another moving vehicle, backing into a parked car and scraping a guard rail. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to choose a higher deductible on your Patriot to save money on collision insurance.

Comprehensive or Other Than Collision

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible then your comprehensive coverage will pay.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as a tree branch falling on your vehicle, damage from getting keyed, falling objects and damage from a tornado or hurricane. The highest amount your auto insurance company will pay is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Medical costs insurance

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP pay for immediate expenses such as nursing services, X-ray expenses, hospital visits, EMT expenses and prosthetic devices. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance plan or if you lack health insurance entirely. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. Personal Injury Protection is only offered in select states and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Be persistent and save

Consumers switch companies for many reasons like policy cancellation, lack of trust in their agent, delays in paying claims or even being labeled a high risk driver. It doesn't matter why you want to switch finding a new company can be easier than you think.

Budget-conscious Jeep Patriot insurance is attainable from both online companies and from local agencies, so you should compare both to have the best chance of lowering rates.
