The information is based on no claims or driving citations, $1,000 deductibles, single status, and no discounts are applied.

When to drop comprehensive and collision

There is no specific rule for phasing out comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, but there is a broad guideline. If the annual cost of your full coverage insurance is more than about 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you might want to think about dropping full coverage.

For example, let’s pretend your Lincoln MKX replacement cost is $9,000 and you have $1,000 physical damage deductibles. If your vehicle is severely damaged, the most you would get paid by your company is $8,000 after the deductible is paid. If you are currently paying more than $800 a year for your policy with full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.

There are some conditions where dropping full coverage is not in your best interest. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you have to carry full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if you can’t afford to buy a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not consider dropping full coverage.

Why do I need car insurance?

Despite the high insurance cost for a Lincoln MKX in Baltimore, insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

The benefits of carrying adequate insurance definitely exceed the cost, particularly for liability claims. Today the average American driver overpays more than $869 every year so you should quote your policy with other companies each time the policy renews to make sure the price is not too high.

Car insurance 101

Knowing the specifics of a insurance policy can be of help when determining which coverages you need for your vehicles. Policy terminology can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” do not carry enough liability coverage. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants as well as damage to your Lincoln MKX.

Since a lot of drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required (30/60/15), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. For this reason, having high UM/UIM coverages should not be overlooked.

Auto liability

This protects you from damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. This insurance protects YOU from claims by other people. It does not cover your injuries or vehicle damage.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person, bodily injury for the entire accident, and a limit for property damage. You commonly see liability limits of 30/60/15 that translate to a limit of $30,000 per injured person, a per accident bodily injury limit of $60,000, and $15,000 of coverage for damaged property.

Liability can pay for claims like structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, court costs and medical services. How much liability coverage do you need? That is your choice, but buy as high a limit as you can afford. Maryland requires drivers to carry at least 30/60/15 but drivers should carry higher limits.

The chart below shows why buying low liability limits may not provide adequate coverage.

Comprehensive coverages

This coverage will pay to fix damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against things like damage from flooding, a tree branch falling on your vehicle, hitting a bird and falling objects. The highest amount a insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if the vehicle’s value is low it’s not worth carrying full coverage.

Collision insurance

Collision insurance covers damage to your MKX caused by collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You have to pay a deductible and then insurance will cover the remainder.

Collision coverage protects against things like sideswiping another vehicle, rolling your car, colliding with a tree and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from lower value vehicles. It’s also possible to increase the deductible on your MKX to bring the cost down.

Coverage for medical payments

Medical payments and Personal Injury Protection insurance provide coverage for expenses like ambulance fees, rehabilitation expenses and hospital visits. They can be used in conjunction with a health insurance policy or if you do not have health coverage. Coverage applies to you and your occupants as well as getting struck while a pedestrian. PIP is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Persistence pays off

Low-cost Lincoln MKX insurance in Baltimore can be sourced on the web in addition to many Baltimore insurance agents, so you need to quote Baltimore car insurance with both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance providers do not provide online rate quotes and usually these smaller companies only sell through independent insurance agencies.

We just showed you a lot of information how to get a better price on Lincoln MKX insurance in Baltimore. The key concept to understand is the more providers you compare, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. You may even discover the best price on insurance is with an unexpected company.

Consumers who switch companies do it for a variety of reasons including delays in paying claims, policy non-renewal, lack of trust in their agent and poor customer service. Regardless of your reason, choosing a new company is not as hard as you think.
