How do Insurance Companies Determine GMC Sierra Insurance Premiums?

A large part of saving on auto insurance is knowing some of the factors that are used to determine the level of your policy premiums. If you have some idea of what controls the rates you pay, this empowers consumers to make smart changes that will entitle you to lower premium levels.

The factors shown below are a few of the "ingredients" used by your company to calculate premiums.

Insurance rates for married couples - Your spouse may cut your premiums on auto insurance. Having a significant other translates into being more financially stable and statistics prove being married results in fewer claims.

Can a thief steal your car? - Selecting a car model with an alarm system can help bring down rates. Theft deterrent systems such as OnStar, LoJack tracking, and tamper alarms all hinder your vehicle from being stolen.

Do you know you're credit history? - Having a good credit score is a big factor in determining your rates. Consumers who have excellent credit tend to be better drivers and file fewer claims than drivers with lower credit ratings. If your credit rating could use some work, you could pay less to insure your GMC Sierra by improving your rating.

Obey driving laws and save - Attentive drivers have lower premiums as compared to careless drivers. Getting just one chargeable violation may cause rates to rise by as much as thirty percent. Drivers who have received dangerous citations such as DUI, reckless driving or excessive speeding may find they need to file a proof of financial responsibility form (SR-22) with their state's department of motor vehicles in order to legally drive.

Buy as much liability coverage as you can afford - Liability insurance provides coverage when you are found to be at fault for physical damage or personal injury to other. Your liability coverage provides for a legal defense which can cost a lot. Liability is cheap compared to physical damage coverage, so do not skimp.

Your vocation can affect rates - Do you work in a high-stress field? Careers such as judges, architects and dentists tend to have higher rates than the rest of us attributed to high stress levels and lots of time spent away from family. On the flip side, jobs like actors, engineers and homemakers have lower than average premiums.

Claim-free discounts can add up - If you file a lot of claims don't be surprised to see either a policy non-renewal or much higher rates. Companies in Tennessee generally give cheaper rates to insureds that do not abuse their auto insurance. Your insurance policy is designed for more catastrophic claims.

Insurance losses for a GMC Sierra - Insurance companies use past insurance losses as a way to help calculate a profitable premium price. Models that historically have increased losses will cost more for specific coverages. The data below shows the historical loss data for GMC Sierra vehicles.

For each policy coverage, the statistical loss for all vehicles, regardless of manufacturer or model, is set at 100. Values below 100 imply a favorable loss record, while percentage values above 100 show a trend for more claims or an increased chance of a larger loss.
