10 Tips to Get Insured on a Luxury Car

Buying a luxury car is an investment. When you are making that investment, it is important to get the right insurance coverage for your vehicle. This article provides 10 tips to help you navigate the process of getting insured on your new Luxury Car!

1. Research your options.

There are several different types of insurance policies to insure your luxury car, including comprehensive renewals and third-party fire and theft. Your insurance broker can provide you with more information about these options.

2. Get at least three quotes for the best price.

You can save more money on your insurance policy if you get three quotes from different companies.

3. Ask for a discount.

The price of car insurance can vary significantly based upon several factors, including how far you are willing to commute, the type of car that you drive, and what you are driving it for (pleasure or business). Make sure you ask your agent if they have any discounts that you can apply for.

4. Find out what you are required to pay up-front.

Most companies require an upfront deposit before they will insure a luxury car. Be sure to find out whether there is a deductible and how much it is before buying the car. If the dealership is offering you an extended warranty, this will likely cover the deductible.

5. Talk to your insurance agent about modifications to your car.

Getting any type of modification done to a luxury car requires planning ahead with your insurance company, as it is likely that they will consider these changes when determining what they are willing to insure on your car. For example, adding a supercharger will increase your car’s horsepower and is likely to raise your insurance costs.

6. Know what kind of gas mileage you are getting.

Insurance companies generally assume that luxury cars get worse fuel economy than non-luxury cars. If you are able to prove that the amount of money you spend on gas is not significantly more than you would spend on a non-luxury car, your insurance company will be willing to insure the car.

7. Be prepared for higher rates when it is time for renewal.

Just like all insurance policies, luxury car insurance policies come with their own unique risks. If you have had any accidents in the past few years, your insurance company will likely increase your rates to cover these higher risks.

8. Take advantage of discounts available to you.

There are many ways that you might be able to receive a discount on your luxury car insurance policy. Some of them include: joining an auto enthusiasts’ club (insurance companies like it when their customers show pride in their cars), training to become a better driver, and having multiple policies with the same company.

9. Get assistance from your dealership if necessary.

Many luxury car dealerships offer insurance packages that can help you save money on your premiums. These deals will vary from dealer to dealer, so be sure to discuss them with your dealer before signing any contracts.

10. Know which companies are most popular with luxury car owners.

Different insurance companies have different reputations for offering the best deals on luxury cars. It is a good idea to compare as many quotes as possible from these top-rated insurance companies before choosing the policy that works best for you:

• Geico

• State Farm

• Nationwide

• Allstate Insurance Company

11. Take advantage of aftermarket warranties.

Many luxury cars already come with extended warranties, but these will not necessarily cover any accidental damages during the first few years of owning your car. If you think there is a chance that you might need to file a claim, it is smart to plan ahead. You can take out an aftermarket warranty when you purchase the car or shortly thereafter. Just make sure that you are comfortable with any restrictions on your manufacturer’s warranty before getting one of these optional policies.

What can I do to get a better deal?

The best way to get a lower rate is to have the company view you as less of a risk. This can be done through several steps. First, find out if there are any discounts offered by your insurer, and make sure you apply for all applicable ones (i.e., if you are a member of an auto club, then join one that insures with your company). Second, check to see if it offers online discounts. Lastly, ask about any new policies they might be offering.

What are the best ways to get discounts?

Taking advantage of the following discounts is the best way to make sure you are getting all the money savings available to you through your insurer. Be sure to ask about these discounts when comparing rates between different companies. First, make sure that every member of the household has their own insurance policy with the same company. Second, find out if your company offers any discounts for taking a defensive driving class.

Will I be able to get luxury car insurance with any company?

Not necessarily. There are many aspects that go into choosing the right company for you, and your current insurance provider may not be one of them. Before deciding on a new luxury car insurer, it is important to get quotes from several companies in order to find out which one will work best for you.

Do I have to disclose my modifications even if they are for off-road use only?

Yes, many modifications made to a vehicle in order to make it capable for off-road use require the car to be listed as a “modified vehicle,” even if the modification is only used off-road. These modifications can significantly increase your risk for an accident and therefore impact your insurance rates.

How long do I have to disclose modifications made to my car?

Modifications usually must be disclosed immediately upon modification, not upon purchase of the car. This means that if you already have your luxury car, more than likely any modifications you make to it will need to be made known to your insurer within 24 hours of installation.
