If you want to find the absolute lowest rates, then the best way to get more affordable Chevy Silverado 2500HD insurance in Aurora is to do an annual price comparison from insurers that sell auto insurance in Colorado.
- First, read about how companies set rates and the modifications you can make to prevent expensive coverage. Many things that cause high rates such as careless driving and a poor credit rating can be eliminated by being financially responsible and driving safely. This article provides more details to lower rates and find overlooked discounts.
- Second, request price quotes from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can provide rates from one company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while independent agencies can quote prices from many different companies.
- Third, compare the new rate quotes to your existing policy and see if there is a cheaper rate. If you find better rates and switch companies, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.
- Fourth, notify your current company of your decision to cancel your existing policy. Submit payment along with a signed and completed policy application to the new company. Make sure you place the new proof of insurance certificate in your glove compartment.
One important bit of advice is that you use similar deductibles and liability limits on each quote request and and to get rates from every insurance company. This enables a fair rate comparison and a complete price analysis.
A recent study showed that a large majority of consumers kept their coverage with the same insurance company for at least four years, and just under half have never taken the time to shop around. Many consumers in Aurora can cut their rates by nearly 35% a year just by comparing rates, but they don't want to take the time to shop their coverage around.
If you already have coverage or just want cheaper coverage, you will benefit by learning to find better prices without having to cut coverage. Quoting and buying affordable policy in Aurora is not that difficult. Consumers only need to know how to quote multiple rates from multiple carriers.

Score discounts on Aurora auto insurance
Some insurers don't always list their entire list of discounts in a way that's easy to find, so the following is a list of some of the best known as well as some of the hidden savings tricks you should be using when you buy Aurora car insurance online.
- Government Employees - Employees or retirees of the government may reduce rates when you quote Aurora car insurance with a few auto insurance companies.
- Telematics Data - Drivers who elect to allow driving data collection to monitor driving habits by using a telematic data system like In-Drive from State Farm and Progressive's Snapshot might get better premium rates as long as they are good drivers.

Data variables include married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and Colorado minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include claim-free, homeowner, multi-vehicle, safe-driver, and multi-policy. Prices do not factor in your specific Aurora location which can modify insurance rates significantly.
Using the premium rates above, we can conclude that using a $100 deductible will cost you approximately $30 more each month or $360 every year than opting for the higher $500 deductible. Since the policyholder would be required to pay $400 more out-of-pocket with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you tend to have at least 13 months between claim filings, you would save money if you opt for a higher deductible.
Does it make sense to buy full coverage?
The illustration below shows the comparison of Chevy Silverado 2500HD insurance costs with full physical damage coverage compared to only buying the minimum liability limits required in Colorado. The data assumes no accidents, no driving violations, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are not married, and no policy discounts are applied.
Guidelines for eliminating full coverage
There is no clear-cut rule to exclude physical damage coverage on your policy, but there is a guideline you can use. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is 10% or more of the replacement cost of your vehicle minus the policy deductible, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's assume your Chevy Silverado 2500HD book value is $7,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is damaged in an accident, the most you would get paid by your company is $6,000 after paying the physical damage deductible. If it's costing you more than $600 a year for your policy with full coverage, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some circumstances where dropping physical damage coverage is not advised. If you still have a lienholder on your title, you are required to maintain full coverage in order to satisfy the requirements of the loan. Also, if you can't afford to buy a different vehicle in the even your car is totaled, you should keep full coverage on your policy.

Deciding on a insurance company requires you to look at more than just a cheap price quote. The questions below may impact your decision as well.
- What is the agency's Better Business Bureau rating?
- Where are claims handled?
- Is vehicle mileage a factor when determining depreciation for repairs?
- Are you getting all the discounts the company offers?
- If independent agents, which companies do they recommend?
- Does the company have a solid financial rating?
If you want to buy car insurance from local Aurora agents, it can be helpful to understand the types of insurance agents and how they can write your policy. Car insurance policy providers are either exclusive agents or independent agents. Either can do a good job, but it's important to point out the difference in the companies they write for since it can affect your agent selection.
Exclusive Car Insurance Agents
Agents that choose to be exclusive can only quote rates from one company and examples are Farmers Insurance and State Farm. Exclusive agents cannot shop your coverage around so keep that in mind. Exclusive agencies are highly trained on their products and sales techniques which helps them sell on service rather than price. Consumers frequently choose to use a exclusive agent primarily because of the prominent brand name and strong financial ratings.
Listed below are Aurora exclusive insurance agents that can give you comparison quotes.

Independent Car Insurance Agents
Independent agents are normally appointed by many insurers and that gives them the ability to insure amongst many companies and help determine which has the cheapest rates. To move your coverage to a new company, the business is moved internally and you can keep the same agent.
If you need lower rates, you will want to compare quotes from at a minimum one independent agency in order to have the best price comparison. Most also write with different regional companies that many times have cheaper rates.

How do I know if I need professional advice?
When it comes to coverage online or from an agent, there really is not a one-size-fits-all type of policy. Your situation is unique so this has to be addressed. For example, these questions might help in determining whether you will benefit from professional help.
- Can my teen driver be rated on a liability-only vehicle?
- What vehicles should carry emergency assistance coverage?
- Are combined or split liability limits better?
- What exactly is covered by my policy?
- What policy terms are available?
- Does my insurance cover a custom paint job?
- What does UM/UIM cover?
If it's difficult to answer those questions but a few of them apply then you might want to talk to an insurance agent.

Informed Drivers Save on Insurance
Part of the car insurance buying process is learning some of the elements that are used to determine the rates you pay for car insurance. If you have a feel for what controls the rates you pay, this allows you to make good choices that will entitle you to lower car insurance prices. Many different elements are used when pricing auto insurance. Some factors are common sense such as your driving record, although others are less apparent like your continuous coverage or your vehicle rating.
Shown below are a partial list of the pieces used by companies to determine your premiums.
GPS tracking and theft deterrents reduce rates - Selecting a car model with a theft deterrent system can earn a premium discount. Systems that thwart thieves such as OnStar found on GM vehicles, advanced tracking like LoJack, and vehicle immobilization systems help track and prevent auto theft.
A good credit history can save money - Having a good credit score is likely to be a major factor in your rate calculation. People with high credit ratings tend to be more responsible and file fewer claims as compared to drivers with lower ratings. Therefore, if your credit rating is lower than you'd like, you could potentially save money when insuring your Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD by spending a little time repairing your credit.
Careless drivers pay higher prices - How you drive has a huge affect on how much you pay. Drivers with clean records pay lower auto insurance prices as compared to careless drivers. Even a single speeding ticket or other violation could increase your next policy renewal by as much as twenty percent. Drivers with careless tickets like DUI or willful reckless driving may face state-mandated requirements to submit a SR-22 or proof of financial responsibility to the state department of motor vehicles in order to continue driving.
The illustration below shows how traffic citations and at-fault claims can affect Chevy Silverado 2500HD insurance costs for different insured age categories. The data assumes a single male driver, comprehensive and collision coverage, $250 deductibles, and no discounts are taken into consideration.
Reserve insurance claims for larger damages - If you are a frequent claim filer, you can look forward to higher premiums or even policy non-renewal. Companies in Colorado give lower rates to drivers who file claims infrequently. Insurance coverage is intended to be relied upon for major claims that would cause financial hardship.
Increase deductibles to save - Physical damage protection, termed comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy, covers your vehicle from damage. Examples of some claims that would be covered are a broken side mirror, collision with an animal, or theft. Your deductibles are the amount of money you are willing to pay if a claim is determined to be covered. The larger the amount you pay before a claim is paid (deductible), the bigger discount you will receive.
Pay more if you have a long commute - Choosing to live in areas with lower population has it's advantages when insuring your vehicles. Drivers in populated areas have to deal with more road rage incidents and more time behind the wheel. Less people living in that area translates into fewer accident claims in addition to lower liability claims.
Bundle home and auto and save - Lots of insurers will give lower prices for people that purchase more than one policy. It's known as a multi-policy discount. If you currently are using one company, it's always a smart idea to compare other Aurora Silverado 2500HD insurance rates to guarantee you are still saving the most.There is a good possibility that you can find better rates even if you insure with multiple companies
What are good liability insurance limits? - Liability insurance is the protection if ever you are determined to be liable for physical damage or personal injury to other. It will provide legal defense coverage which can cost thousands of dollars. It is affordable coverage compared to other policy coverages, so buy as much as you can afford.
Why you need to buy insurance
Despite the high insurance cost for a Chevy Silverado 2500HD in Aurora, buying insurance is required by state law in Colorado and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.
- Most states have mandatory insurance requirements which means the state requires a minimum amount of liability coverage if you drive a vehicle. In Colorado these limits are 25/50/15 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $15,000 of property damage coverage.
- If your Silverado 2500HD has a loan, most banks will stipulate that you have physical damage coverage to guarantee loan repayment. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the bank may insure your Chevy at a more expensive rate and make you pay the higher price.
- Insurance protects both your assets and your car. It will also pay for medical bills for both you and anyone you injure as the result of an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also covers all legal expenses up to the policy limit if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If you have damage to your Chevy as the result of the weather or an accident, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of carrying adequate insurance outweigh the cost, particularly when you have a large claim. Despite what companies tell you, the average driver is overpaying more than $700 annually so smart consumers compare quotes at least once a year to save money.
