Prices based on married male driver age 30, no speeding tickets, no at-fault accidents, and New Mexico minimum liability limits. Discounts applied include homeowner, claim-free, multi-policy, multi-vehicle, and safe-driver. Premium amounts do not factor in Albuquerque location which can impact coverage rates considerably.

We can derive from the above data that using a $100 deductible will cost in the ballpark of $21 more each month or $252 each year than requesting the higher $500 deductible. Since you would pay $400 more to settle a claim with a $500 deductible as compared to a $100 deductible, if you usually have more than 19 months between claims, you would come out ahead going with the higher deductible.

Toyota FJ Cruiser annual premiums for males versus females

The example below illustrates the difference between Toyota FJ Cruiser yearly insurance costs for male and female drivers. The information is based on no driving violations, no at-fault accidents, comp and collision included, $100 deductibles, single marital status, and no additional discounts are factored in.

Price comparison of only insuring for liability

The example below shows the difference between Toyota FJ Cruiser insurance costs with and without physical damage coverage, medical payments, and uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage. The costs are based on no violations or accidents, $1,000 deductibles, drivers are single, and no additional discounts are factored in.

When to stop paying for full coverage

There is no exact rule to delete full coverage, but there is a guideline you can use. If the yearly cost for physical damage coverage is about 10% or more of any settlement you would receive from your insurance company, then it’s probably a good time to buy liability coverage only.

For example, let’s say your Toyota FJ Cruiser settlement value is $4,000 and you have $1,000 policy deductibles. If your vehicle is destroyed, the most you would receive is $3,000 after you pay the deductible. If it’s costing in excess of $300 annually for physical damage coverage, then you may want to consider only buying liability coverage.

There are some situations where buying only liability insurance is not a good plan. If you still have a loan on your vehicle, you have to keep full coverage in order to prevent your loan from defaulting. Also, if your emergency fund is not enough to purchase a different vehicle if your current one is in an accident, you should not opt for liability only.

Choose the right car insurance agent

If you prefer to buy car insurance from a reliable agent, you need to know there are two different types of agents and how they can write your policy. Car insurance agencies are either independent (non-exclusive) or exclusive.

Independent Car Insurance Agents (or Brokers)

Independent agents are not required to write business for one company so they can write business with a variety of different insurance companies and potentially find a lower price. To move your coverage to a new company, your agent can switch companies which is easy for the insured. If you are comparing car insurance prices, it’s recommended you include several independent agencies for maximum quote selection. They also have the ability to place coverage with companies that do not advertise much which may have better rates.

Exclusive Car Insurance Agencies

These type of agents work for only one company like Allstate and State Farm. They are unable to place coverage with different providers so keep that in mind. Exclusive agents are well schooled in insurance sales which can be an advantage. Consumers sometimes use the same agent mainly due to high brand loyalty and the convenience of having a single billing for all their coverages.
