- Step 1: Read and learn about what coverages are included in your policy and the things you can change to prevent expensive coverage. Many rating factors that increase rates like traffic violations, accidents, and poor credit history can be rectified by making minor changes to your lifestyle.
- Step 2: Get rate quotes from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Exclusive agents and direct companies can give quotes from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while independent agents can quote rates from multiple insurance companies. Start a quote
- Step 3: Compare the new rate quotes to your existing policy and determine if there is any savings. If you can save some money, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.
- Step 4: Notify your company or agent to cancel the current policy and submit a completed application and payment to your new agent or company. Immediately safely store the certificate of insurance in your vehicle.
A good piece of advice is that you'll want to compare the same physical damage deductibles and liability limits on every quote request and and to get rates from as many carriers as you can. Doing this helps ensure a fair price comparison and a thorough price selection.

Insurance policy discounts for Dodge Ram 2500 insurance in Newark
Companies don't necessarily list all available discounts in an easy-to-find place, so the list below gives a summary of both the well known and also the more inconspicuous credits that you can use to lower your rates.
- Claim-Free Discount - Drivers who don't have accidents pay less compared to bad drivers.
- E-sign - A few larger online companies provide a small discount for buying your policy on their website.
- Mature Driver Discount - If you're over the age of 55, you may be able to get a discount up to 10%.
- Save with a New Car - Adding a new car to your policy is cheaper since new model year vehicles have better safety ratings.
- Payment Method - By paying your policy upfront instead of making monthly payments you may have a lower total premium amount.
- Active Military Service - Having an actively deployed family member may qualify for rate reductions.
- Driver's Education for Students - Cut your cost by having your teen driver complete a driver education course in school.
- Onboard Data Collection - Drivers who elect to allow driving data submission to analyze driving habits by using a telematic data system such as Progressive's Snapshot could save a few bucks if they have good driving habits.
- Sign Early and Save - Some companies reward drivers for switching policies prior to the expiration date on your current Ram 2500 insurance policy. The savings is around 10%.
As a footnote on discounts, most discount credits are not given to the overall cost of the policy. Most only cut the price of certain insurance coverages like collision or personal injury protection. So despite the fact that it appears you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies wouldn't make money that way. Any amount of discount should help lower the amount you have to pay.

Buying the right Dodge Ram 2500 insurance in New Jersey is an important decision
Even though Newark Ram 2500 insurance rates can get expensive, insuring your vehicle is required by state law in New Jersey and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.
- The majority of states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to buy a minimum amount of liability insurance in order to drive the car legally. 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 you have a lien on your vehicle, it's most likely the lender will require you to have full coverage to ensure they get paid if you total the vehicle. If the policy lapses, the lender will be forced to insure your Dodge for a lot more money and require you to fork over a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Insurance safeguards not only your vehicle but also your financial assets. It also can pay for many types of medical costs for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability insurance will also pay attorney fees if someone files suit against you as the result of an accident. If you have damage to your Dodge as the result of the weather or an accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to repair the damage.
The benefits of carrying adequate insurance more than offset the price you pay, particularly if you ever have a claim. But the average driver in New Jersey is wasting up to $869 every year so it's important to compare rates at every policy renewal to ensure rates are competitive.
