Premium data assumes married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Jersey minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, multi-vehicle, claim-free, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Rates do not factor in specific zip code location which can decrease or increase coverage rates substantially.

Based on this data, we can arrive at the conclusion that using a $250 deductible costs an average of $40 more each month or $480 every year than opting for the higher $1,000 deductible. Due to the fact that you would have to pay $750 more if you file a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $250 deductible, if you have at least 19 months between claims, you would save money if you opt for a higher deductible. Below is how you can perform this determination yourself.

Average monthly premium for $250 deductibles: $157
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $117
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $40
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 – $250): $750
Divide difference by monthly savings: $750 / $40
Number of months required between physical damage coverage claims in order to save money by choosing the higher deductible 19 months

An important thing to remember is that raising deductibles to get cheaper rates results in more money out-of-pocket when you have a physical damage claim. That will require some extra funds in the event you need to pay more for the deductible.

Responsible drivers pay cheaper insurance rates

The illustration below demonstrates how traffic citations and at-fault collisions impact Toyota Sequoia annual premium costs for different ages of insureds. The information is based on a single male driver, full coverage, $250 deductibles, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Does full coverage make sense?

The chart below illustrates the comparison of Toyota Sequoia insurance costs with and without physical damage coverage. The costs are based on a clean driving record, no claims, $1,000 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are factored in.

Should you buy full coverage or liability only?

There is no definitive formula of when to phase out comp and collision coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of having full coverage is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it might be time to buy liability only.

For example, let’s say your Toyota Sequoia claim settlement value is $9,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled, the most you would receive is $8,000 after paying your deductible. If you are paying more than $800 annually for physical damage coverage, then it might be time to buy liability only.

There are some situations where removing full coverage is not financially feasible. If you haven’t satisfied your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should maintain full coverage.

Do you qualify for these ten discounts?

Some providers don’t always list every discount in an easy-to-find place, so the following list contains both well-publicized as well as some of the hidden discounts that you can inquire about if you buy Newark car insurance online.Discount auto insurance

A quick disclaimer, most credits do not apply to the whole policy. Most only apply to specific coverage prices like medical payments or collision. So even though they make it sound like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, it doesn’t quite work that way.

The example below visualizes the comparison of Toyota Sequoia car insurance costs with and without some available policy discounts. The data is based on a female driver, no violations or accidents, New Jersey state minimum liability limits, full physical damage coverage, and $250 deductibles. The first bar for each age group shows premium with no discounts. The second shows the rates with multi-car, homeowner, safe-driver, multi-policy, marriage, and claim-free discounts applied.

A few of the larger companies and a selection of discounts are included below.

Before you buy a policy, ask every company which credits you are entitled to. A few discounts may not be available in every state. If you would like to see a list of insurance companies that have a full spectrum of discounts in Newark, click this link.

Auto insurance agents in Newark come in two varieties

When researching a reliable insurance agency, there are a couple of types of insurance agents that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Auto insurance agents in Newark are considered either exclusive or independent (non-exclusive).

Exclusive Agencies

Agents in the exclusive channel can usually just insure with one company like State Farm, Allstate, or Farmers Insurance. They are unable to provide rate quotes from other companies so they have to upsell other benefits. Exclusive agencies receive extensive training in insurance sales which can be an advantage.

Shown below are Newark exclusive insurance agents who can help you get price quotes.

Independent Agents (or Brokers)

These agents are appointed with more than one company and that enables them to quote your coverage with any number of different companies and find you cheaper rates. If you are not satisfied with one company, they simply move the coverage in-house and you won’t have to switch agencies. If you need lower rates, we highly recommend that you get rate quotes from several independent insurance agents to get the best comparison.

Insurance coverage specifics

Knowing the specifics of insurance helps when choosing the best coverages and proper limits and deductibles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and even agents have difficulty translating policy wording. Shown next are the usual coverages offered by insurance companies.

Medical expense insurance

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage pay for expenses for nursing services, dental work, funeral costs and surgery. They are often used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. Coverage applies to not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers

Your UM/UIM coverage provides protection when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Toyota Sequoia.

Due to the fact that many New Jersey drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits (which is 15/30/5), it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. So UM/UIM coverage is very important.

Comprehensive (Other than Collision)

Comprehensive insurance coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You first have to pay a deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive insurance covers claims like falling objects, hitting a bird, theft, damage from flooding and vandalism. The maximum amount you’ll receive from a claim is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Collision protection

Collision insurance pays for damage to your Sequoia caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision can pay for things such as hitting a mailbox, crashing into a ditch, rolling your car, damaging your car on a curb and crashing into a building. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to bump up the deductible on your Sequoia to bring the cost down.

Liability auto insurance

Liability coverage will cover injuries or damage you cause to a person or their property in an accident. It protects YOU from legal claims by others, and does not provide coverage for your injuries or vehicle damage.

Liability coverage has three limits: bodily injury per person, bodily injury per accident and property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 15/30/5 which stand for a limit of $15,000 per injured person, $30,000 for the entire accident, and property damage coverage for $5,000.

Liability insurance covers claims such as court costs, pain and suffering and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a personal decision, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase as much as you can afford. New Jersey state law requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/5 but you should consider buying higher limits.

The next chart shows why buying minimum limits may not be enough.

Lower rates by being persistent

We just presented a lot of ways to find affordable Toyota Sequoia insurance in Newark. The key thing to remember is the more companies you get rates for, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may even find the best prices are with the least-expected company. These companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates compared to the large companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive.

Lower-priced car insurance in Newark can be bought on the web as well as from independent agents in Newark, and you should compare rates from both to get a complete price analysis. Some insurance providers may not provide online quoting and usually these small, regional companies provide coverage only through independent agents.
