Cheaper rates on Ford Ranger insurance in Newark with these nine discounts

Some companies don't list every possible discount very well, so the next list breaks down a few of the more well known as well as some of the hidden credits available to lower your premiums when you buy Newark car insurance online.

  • Accident Forgiveness Coverage - Not really a discount, but a handful of insurance companies will allow you to have one accident before raising your premiums as long as you don't have any claims for a particular time prior to the accident.
  • Auto/Life Discount - Not all insurance carriers offer life insurance, but some may give you a break if you buy a life policy as well.
  • Safe Driver Discount - Safe drivers can pay as much as 50% less compared to rates paid by drivers with frequent claims.
  • Multiple Cars - Having more than one vehicle on the same car insurance policy can reduce the rates for all insured vehicles.
  • ABS Braking Discount - Cars with ABS braking systems or traction control can reduce accidents and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Discount for Swiching Early - Some larger companies provide a discount for renewing your policy prior to the expiration date on your current Ranger insurance policy. This can save 10% or more.
  • Drivers Ed for Students - Reduce the cost of insurance for teen drivers by having them complete a driver education course in school.
  • College Student Discount - Older children who live away from home to go to college and do not have a car can receive lower rates.
  • Anti-theft Discount - Cars and trucks with anti-theft systems are stolen less frequently and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.

We need to note that many deductions do not apply to all coverage premiums. Some only reduce individual premiums such as collision or personal injury protection. Even though it appears all the discounts add up to a free policy, it doesn't quite work that way.

The information below illustrates the difference between Ford Ranger insurance costs with and without discounts applied to the policy rates. The prices are based on a male driver, no tickets, no at-fault accidents, New Jersey state minimum liability limits, full coverage, and $100 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with homeowner, multi-car, multi-policy, safe-driver, marriage, and claim-free discounts applied.

Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-policy, homeowner, multi-vehicle, and safe-driver. Premium amounts do not factor in vehicle location which can impact coverage prices greatly.

Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $100 deductible would cost the average driver about $43 more each month or $516 each year than requesting the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $900 more if you turn in a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you normally go more than 21 months between claim filings, you would save money if you opt for a higher deductible.

How to determine if higher deductibles are a good idea

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $144
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): - $101
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $43
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 - $100): $900
Divide difference by monthly savings: $900 / $43
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 21 months

Comparison of insurance rates by gender

The diagram below illustrates the comparison of Ford Ranger yearly insurance costs for male and female drivers. The price estimates are based on no claims or violations, comprehensive and collision coverage, $500 deductibles, marital status is single, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Difference between liability only and full coverage rates

The diagram below shows the difference between Ford Ranger insurance costs when comparing full coverage to state minimum liability only. The data is based on no accidents, no driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no discounts are applied to the premium.

When to stop buying physical damage coverage

There is no exact rule of when to exclude physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a general guideline. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than about 10% of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.

For example, let's say your Ford Ranger settlement value is $3,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would get paid by your company is $2,000 after paying your deductible. If it's costing you more than $200 annually for physical damage coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.

There are a few cases where only buying liability is not advised. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to maintain full coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is damaged, you should not buy liability only.

When to talk to a local insurance agent

Certain consumers prefer to sit down with an agent and that is a personal choice. Professional agents can help you build your policy and help you file claims. A good thing about comparing insurance prices online is you can get lower rates and also buy local. And buying from local insurance agents is especially important in Newark.

If you are searching for a reliable insurance agent, it helps to know the two different types of agencies that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Car insurance policy providers can be categorized as either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive. Both properly insure your vehicles, but it's important to point out why they differ because it can factor into buying decisions.

Independent Agents (or Brokers)

Agents that elect to be independent are appointed with more than one company so as a result can place your coverage through many companies enabling the ability to shop coverage around. If premiums increase, your agent can switch companies which makes it simple for you.

If you need cheaper car insurance rates, you will definitely want to check rates from a couple of independent agencies for maximum quote selection.

More insurance agents

Selecting a insurance agency requires you to look at more than just the quoted price. A good agent in Newark will have answers to these questions.

  • Can they give you a list of client referrals?
  • Do they make recommendations based only on price?
  • If your car is totaled, how to they determine the replacement cost?
  • Where would glass claims be handled in Newark?
  • How long has the business existed?
  • Do they assist clients in filing claims?
  • How much will you save each year by using a higher deductible?
  • Does their agency support local causes in Newark?

Protect your vehicle and other assets

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure a Ford in Newark, insurance is required for several reasons.

  • Almost all states have mandatory insurance requirements which means you are required to carry specific limits of liability coverage 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 your Ford has a loan, more than likely the lender will make it a condition of the loan that you buy full coverage to guarantee payment of the loan. If you default on your policy, the lender may have to buy a policy to insure your Ford for a much higher rate and make you pay for the much more expensive policy.
  • Car insurance protects both your Ford Ranger and your assets. It will also pay for medical expenses for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. One of the most valuable coverages, liability insurance, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you are sued as the result of an accident. If your Ford gets damaged, comprehensive (other-than-collision) and collision coverage will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of carrying enough insurance more than offset the price you pay, particularly if you ever have a claim. But the average American driver is wasting up to $810 a year so we recommend shopping around at every renewal to ensure rates are inline.

Car insurance coverages for a Ford Ranger

Learning about specific coverages of your auto insurance policy helps when choosing the best coverages at the best deductibles and correct limits. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy. Shown next are typical coverage types found on the average auto insurance policy.

Insurance for medical payments - Med pay and PIP coverage pay for short-term medical expenses for things like chiropractic care, EMT expenses and prosthetic devices. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. Coverage applies to both the driver and occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible

Collision coverage - This covers damage to your Ranger resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. A deductible applies and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision insurance covers things such as crashing into a ditch, sideswiping another vehicle, scraping a guard rail, colliding with another moving vehicle and rolling your car. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to choose a higher deductible on your Ranger to save money on collision insurance.

Liability coverages - This coverage provides protection from damages or injuries you inflict on people or other property that is your fault. Split limit liability has three limits of coverage: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show policy limits of 15/30/5 which means $15,000 in coverage for each person's injuries, a total of $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $5,000 of coverage for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) that pays claims from the same limit and claims can be made without the split limit restrictions.

Liability insurance covers claims such as medical services, funeral expenses, loss of income and repair bills for other people's vehicles. How much liability should you purchase? That is a decision to put some thought into, but consider buying as large an amount as possible. New Jersey requires drivers to carry at least 15/30/5 but it's recommended drivers buy higher limits.

The next chart shows why buying minimum limits may not be high enough to cover claims.

Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist insurance - This gives you protection when the "other guys" either have no liability insurance or not enough. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as damage to your Ford Ranger.

Since many New Jersey drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (15/30/5 in New Jersey), it only takes a small accident to exceed their coverage. That's why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually the UM/UIM limits are set the same as your liability limits.

Comprehensive coverage (or Other than Collision) - This will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage pays for claims such as a broken windshield, theft, hitting a bird, hail damage and hitting a deer. The maximum amount you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the actual cash value, so if it's not worth much more than your deductible consider removing comprehensive coverage.

Cheap auto insurance premiums are possible

Budget-conscious Ford Ranger insurance can be purchased on the web as well as from insurance agents, and you should compare rates from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some companies may not provide online rate quotes and these small insurance companies sell through independent insurance agencies.

You just read many ideas to lower your Ford Ranger insurance premium rates in Newark. It's most important to understand that the more providers you compare, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may even find the best premium rates are with the smaller companies. Some small companies may have significantly lower prices on certain market segments than the large multi-state companies such as Allstate or State Farm.

As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it's not a good idea to reduce needed coverages to save money. There are a lot of situations where an accident victim reduced physical damage coverage only to regret that they should have had better coverage. The goal is to buy enough coverage for the lowest price.

How to find cheaper Ford Ranger insurance in Newark

The best way we recommend to find lower priced car insurance rates in Newark is to start comparing prices regularly from insurers in New Jersey.

  1. Try to understand individual coverages and the measures you can take to lower rates. Many rating criteria that drive up the price like accidents, traffic violations, and a poor credit rating can be improved by making lifestyle changes or driving safer.
  2. Request price quotes from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Exclusive agents and direct companies can only provide price estimates from one company like Progressive or State Farm, while independent agents can provide price quotes from multiple companies. View prices
  3. Compare the new rates to your existing rates and see if there is a cheaper rate. If you find better rates and switch companies, make sure coverage does not lapse between policies.
  4. Tell your current company to cancel the current policy and submit any necessary down payment along with the completed application for the new coverage. Once the paperwork is finalized, keep the new proof of insurance paperwork above your visor, in the console, or in the glove compartment.

One thing to remember is to make sure you enter similar limits and deductibles on every quote request and and to get price quotes from as many car insurance companies as possible. Doing this guarantees the most accurate price comparison and a thorough price selection.
