This article provides instructions to help prevent high rates and find possible discounts that are available.
- Request price quotes from exclusive agents, independent agents, and direct providers. Exclusive and direct companies can only give rate quotes from a single company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while independent agents can quote rates from multiple sources.

- Tell your current agent or company of your decision to cancel your current policy. Submit a completed application and payment for your new policy. Once received, keep the new proof of insurance certificate along with the vehicle's registration papers.
The key aspect of shopping around is to use identical coverage information on every price quote and and to get rates from every company you can. Doing this provides a fair price comparison and plenty of rates choose from.

Data rating is based on single male driver age 40, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, $1000 deductibles, and Nebraska minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, multi-vehicle, homeowner, multi-policy, and safe-driver. Estimates do not factor in vehicle garaging location which can change coverage prices significantly.
Cost difference between full coverage and liability
The example below illustrates the comparison of Ford F-150 insurance costs with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The costs are based on a clean driving record, no at-fault accidents, $500 deductibles, single marital status, and no discounts are applied to the premium.
Guidelines for eliminating full coverage
There is no definitive guideline for dropping comp and collision coverage, but there is a guideline you can consider. If the yearly cost of full coverage is more than about 10% of replacement cost minus your deductible, then it could be time to drop full coverage.
For example, let's pretend your Ford F-150 claim settlement value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, you would only receive $6,000 after the policy deductible has been paid. If you are currently paying more than $600 a year for physical damage coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.
There are a few situations where buying only liability insurance is not recommended. If you haven't paid off your loan, you must maintain physical damage coverage in order to keep the loan. Also, if you cannot afford to purchase a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should not eliminate full coverage.
