Chevrolet City Express liability-only versus full coverage
The information below shows the comparison of Chevy City Express car insurance rates with full physical damage coverage and with liability coverage only. The rates are based on no violations or claims, $1,000 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are factored in.
Should you pay for full coverage?
There is no set guideline for eliminating full coverage on your policy, but there is a general school of thought. If the yearly cost of comp and collision coverage is about 10% or more of the settlement you would receive from your company, then it could be time to drop full coverage.
For example, let's say your Chevy City Express settlement value is $5,000 and you have $1,000 deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, you would only receive $4,000 after paying your policy deductible. If premium cost is more than $400 a year for your policy with full coverage, the it may be a good time to stop paying for full coverage.
There are some conditions where dropping full coverage is not advised. If you have an outstanding loan on your vehicle, you have to carry full coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle in the event your current vehicle is totaled, you should not remove full coverage.

Finding a good insurance company requires more thought than just the price. Ask your prospective agent these questions:
- If your car is in the repair shop, do you have coverage for a rental car?
- Are aftermarket or OEM parts used to repair vehicles?
- Who is covered by the car insurance policy?
- Are they in the agency full-time?
- How much can you save by raising your physical damage deductibles?
- What will you get paid if your car is a total loss? How is that amount determined?
- What insurance companies do they recommend if they are an independent agent?
If you are wanting to find a reputable agency, it helps to know the two types of insurance agents and how they function. Insurance agents are classified as either exclusive agents or independent agents. Either type can properly insure your vehicles, but it is important to understand why they differ since it can affect which agent you choose.
Exclusive Insurance Agencies
Agents of this type can only place business with one company such as State Farm, AAA, Farmers Insurance or Allstate. These agents are not able to give you multiple price quotes so you might not find the best rates. Exclusive agents are very knowledgeable on their company's products which helps them sell on service rather than price. Consumers frequently use the same agent mostly because of loyalty to the company rather than low price.
Below is a list of exclusive agents in Madison who can help you get comparison quotes.

Independent Agents (or Brokers)
Agents that choose to be independent are normally appointed by many insurers so they can write business with an assortment of companies and potentially find a lower price. If you are not satisfied with one company, they simply switch companies in-house which is easy for the insured. If you are trying to find cheaper rates, it's recommended you include rate quotes from independent agents to get the best comparison. They often place coverage with companies that do not advertise much which may have better rates.
