Step 2: Compare prices from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Exclusive and direct companies can only give rate quotes from one company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while independent agencies can quote rates from multiple sources.

You Can Change Your Insurance Rates
Consumers need to have an understanding of some of the factors that help calculate your car insurance rates. If you understand what determines base rates, this empowers consumers to make smart changes that may result in cheaper rates. Many different elements are used in the calculation when premium rates are determined. Some are pretty understandable like your driving record, but some are more obscure like where you live or your vehicle rating.
- Don't abuse claims - Companies in New Jersey provide the lowest premiums to policyholders who file claims infrequently. If you file a lot of claims you can expect higher rates. Your car insurance is designed for more catastrophic claims.
- Five star IIHS safety rating saves money - Safer cars are cheaper to insure. Highly rated vehicles protect occupants better and lower injury rates means less claims paid passed on to you as lower rates. If your Audi Q7 is rated at a minimum an "acceptable" rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website or four stars on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website you may qualify for a discount.
- Better premiums for continuous coverage - Not having insurance is against the law and as a result your rates will increase for letting your coverage lapse. And not only will insurance be more expensive, not being able to provide proof of insurance could result in fines or a revoked license. You may then have to provide proof of insurance in the form of an SR-22 filing with the New Jersey motor vehicle department.
- Lower annual miles equals lower premium - The more miles you rack up on your Audi in a year the more you'll pay to insure your vehicle. Most insurance companies calculate rates determined by how the vehicle is used. Cars that are left in the garage qualify for better rates than vehicles that have high annual mileage. It's a smart idea to ensure your vehicle rating is showing the right rating data. Having the wrong rating on your Q7 is throwing money out the window.
- More traffic means higher claims - Choosing to live in less populated areas may provide you with better prices when talking about car insurance. Residents of big cities regularly have traffic congestion and a longer drive to work. Less people living in that area means reduced accidents and also fewer theft and vandalism claims.
- Lower rates with a multi-policy discount - Some insurance companies afford discounts for people who carry more than one policy. It's known as a multi-policy discount. The discount can add up to anywhere from five to ten percent in most cases. Even if you already get this discount, it's still a good idea to compare Audi Q7 rates in Newark to help ensure you have the lowest rates.
Premiums drop with age - Drivers with little experience are statistically shown to be inattentive and easily distracted with other occupants in the car so they pay higher car insurance rates. More mature drivers are shown to be more cautious, file fewer claims, and are safer drivers.
The following data assumes a single driver, full coverage with $100 deductibles, and no discounts or violations.
- Responsible credit saves on car insurance - Having a bad credit score is a big factor in your rate calculation. Insureds that have high credit scores tend to be more responsible than drivers who have poor credit scores. Therefore, if your credit can be improved, you could potentially save money when insuring your Audi Q7 by repairing your credit.
Audi Q7 insurance loss probability - Car insurance companies take into consideration historical loss data for every vehicle when they calculate premium costs for each model. Vehicles that tend to have a higher amount or frequency of claims will cost more for specific coverages. The table below shows the historical loss data for Audi Q7 vehicles.
For each policy coverage type, the loss probability for all vehicles, regardless of make or model, is represented as 100. Percentage values below 100 are indicative of better than average losses, while percentages above 100 indicate frequent claims or a tendency for claims to be larger.
