FAQs About Car Insurance In Michigan

What affects my car insurance rates?

A number of factors determine your car insurance rates. One of the major considerations is your driving record. A good driving record will drive down the rate. Your credit score also plays a significant role. Lower scores usually mean higher premiums.

Other demographic factors that come into play are your gender, age, marital status, and where you live. The type of vehicle being insured matters, as well. Car insurance companies take into account the vehicle’s age, size, safety rating, and the likelihood it will be stolen.

Factors that can cause your car insurance rate to increase include higher auto repair and medical costs, an increase in the number of drivers on the road, and a surge in distracted driving incidents.

Which car insurance terms should I learn?

  • Premium – The amount of money you pay a car insurance carrier to provide coverage and pay claims. Premiums are typically paid annually, once every six months or monthly.
  • Deductible – The amount of money you pay out of your own pocket before your insurance company steps in to cover the rest of an auto claim. A low deductible usually means a high premium and vice versa.
  • Bodily injury liability – This type of coverage provides protection if you cause an accident that harms or kills someone in another vehicle. It does not cover you or any passengers in your car.
  • Limit of liability – The highest amount your insurance company can pay for coverage as dictated by your policy.
  • Personal injury protection coverage – This type of coverage steps in where bodily injury liability leaves off, by protecting you and your passengers.
  • Collision coverage – This type of coverage pays for damage inflicted on your car by hitting another vehicle or object.
  • Comprehensive coverage – This type of coverage kicks in if your car is damaged by an event such as a falling object, natural disaster or theft.
  • Property damage coverage – This type of coverage protects you if your car inflicts damage on another person’s property or vehicle.
  • Uninsured motorist coverage – This type of coverage protects you and your passengers in the event that an uninsured driver hits your car and injures you (bodily injury). It also covers damages to your car (property).

How do I compare car insurance quotes?

First, keep it consistent. Make sure you include the deductibles, coverage limits, and set of coverages for each car quote including any additional coverage you intend to get. This is the only way to ensure you get an accurate comparison. The coverage period is another detail that must remain consistent in order to get the full picture. The insurance premium for a six-month period will look very different than one for a one-year coverage period.

When it comes to your deductible, remember that a higher deductible means a lower car insurance rate and vice versa. Carefully consider which of the two options you prefer. At this point, you can review all of the quotes to accurately determine which estimate is most favorable.

And do not forget to take into account which features are included in each auto policy you are considering. This is critical, as you want a policy that meets your state’s minimum requirements and your individual needs. Some items you may assume are built-in free of charge may be provided at a fee. It is imperative to confirm what is included and what is not.
