  1. Try to comprehend how insurance works and the steps you can take to prevent expensive coverage. Many things that increase rates such as high-risk driving behaviors and a bad credit score can be improved by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes. Later in this article we will cover more information to get cheaper rates and find hidden discounts.
  2. Get rate quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can provide rates from a single company like GEICO or State Farm, while agents who are independent can provide prices from many different companies.
  3. Compare the new rates to the price on your current policy and see if there is a cheaper rate. If you find better rates and switch companies, make sure the effective date of the new policy is the same as the expiration date of the old one.
  4. Tell your current company to cancel your current auto insurance policy and submit a signed application and payment to the new company. Once the application is submitted, safely store the certificate verifying coverage along with the vehicle’s registration papers.

One key aspect of rate comparisons is that you’ll want to make sure you compare the same level of coverage on each price quote and and to get price quotes from as many car insurance companies as possible. Doing this provides an accurate price comparison and the best price quote selection.

Data based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Alaska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include multi-vehicle, safe-driver, homeowner, multi-policy, and claim-free. Information does not factor in specific location which can lower or raise premiums noticeably.

Based on the above data, using a $100 deductible costs roughly $32 more each month or $384 annually across all Toyota Sequoia models than quoting the higher $1,000 deductible. Because you would be required to pay $900 more to settle a claim with a $1,000 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you normally average at least 28 months between claims, you would probably come out ahead if you decide on a higher deductible. The table below shows a better example of how you can perform this determination yourself.

Average monthly premium for $100 deductibles: $99
Average monthly premium for $1,000 deductibles (subtract): – $67
Monthly savings from raising deductible: $32
Difference between deductibles ($1,000 – $100): $900

Comparison of full coverage and liability-only policies

The diagram below illustrates the difference between Toyota Sequoia insurance rates with full coverage compared to only the Alaska minimum liability coverage. The premiums assume no accidents or driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, marital status is single, and no policy discounts are applied.

Should you be buying full coverage?

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

For example, let’s pretend your Toyota Sequoia settlement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most your company would pay you is $6,000 after the deductible is paid. If it’s costing you more than $600 a year for full coverage, then you might want to consider buying only liability coverage.

There are some cases where dropping full coverage is not a good idea. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should keep full coverage in place.

Compare but don’t skimp

Budget-friendly auto insurance in Anchorage can be sourced on the web and from local insurance agents, and you should be comparing both to have the best selection. There are still a few companies who may not have online quoting and most of the time these small insurance companies only sell through independent agents.

While you’re price shopping online, do not sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. In many cases, an accident victim reduced full coverage only to regret at claim time that it was a big mistake. Your aim should be to get the best coverage possible at the best cost while not skimping on critical coverages.
