The most effective way to save on Dodge Ram 2500 insurance in Tucson is to start comparing prices yearly from different companies who provide auto insurance in Arizona. You can compare rates by following these steps.
- Take a little time to learn about how car insurance works and the modifications you can make to drop your rates. Many rating factors that drive up the price like at-fault accidents and a low credit rating can be controlled by making minor driving habit or lifestyle changes. Later in this article we will cover more ideas to prevent expensive rate increases and earn a bigger discount.
- Compare price quotes from direct carriers, independent agents, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can only give prices from a single company like GEICO and Allstate, while independent agencies can provide prices from multiple insurance companies.
- Compare the new rate quotes to your current policy to see if a cheaper rate is available in Tucson. If you find a lower rate and switch companies, ensure there is no coverage lapse between policies.
- Provide notification to your current company of your intention to cancel your current car insurance policy and submit a down payment along with a signed application to your new insurance company. Don’t forget to put the certificate verifying coverage in an easily accessible location.
The most important part of this process is that you’ll want to compare the same level of coverage on each quote and and to compare every company you can. This enables an apples-to-apples comparison and a better comparison of the market.
Shocking but true, the vast majority of drivers kept their policy with the same company for at least the last four years, and 38% of drivers have never quoted auto insurance rates at all. With the average premium in the United States being $1,847, drivers can cut their rates by almost 47% a year by just comparing rate quotes, but they just assume it takes a lot of time to compare rate quotes.

Insurance coverage considerations
Learning about specific coverages of a insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. The coverage terms in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement.
Collision coverage protection
This will pay to fix damage to your Ram 2500 caused by collision with another car or object. You first must pay a deductible and the rest of the damage will be paid by collision coverage.
Collision insurance covers claims such as scraping a guard rail, damaging your car on a curb, driving through your garage door and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision is rather expensive coverage, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to raise the deductible on your Ram 2500 to bring the cost down.
Coverage for uninsured or underinsured drivers
Your UM/UIM coverage gives you protection when other motorists do not carry enough liability coverage. Covered losses include medical payments for you and your occupants and damage to your Dodge Ram 2500.
Due to the fact that many Arizona drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (15/30/10), their limits can quickly be used up. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages is a good idea.
Liability insurance provides protection from damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. Your policy might show limits of 15/30/10 which stand for $15,000 bodily injury coverage, a per accident bodily injury limit of $30,000, and a limit of $10,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability can pay for things such as bail bonds, court costs, medical expenses, structural damage and attorney fees. How much liability coverage do you need? That is a decision to put some thought into, but buy higher limits if possible. Arizona requires minimum liability limits of 15/30/10 but you should consider buying more liability than the minimum.
The chart below shows why the minimum limit may not be adequate.
This pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things such as damage from flooding, damage from a tornado or hurricane, hitting a deer and falling objects. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the market value of your vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.
Coverage for medical expenses
Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP kick in for bills such as chiropractic care, dental work, funeral costs, hospital visits and EMT expenses. The coverages can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants as well as if you are hit as a while walking down the street. Personal injury protection coverage is not an option in every state but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Shop smart and save
Drivers change insurance companies for any number of reasons including not issuing a premium refund, poor customer service, lack of trust in their agent or even unfair underwriting practices. Whatever your reason, choosing a new insurance company is not as hard as you think.
