I can’t think of anyone who likes having to buy car insurance, particularly when the price is too high. Insurance companies such as GEICO, Farmers Insurance and State Farm persitently shower you with ads and it is challenging if not impossible to see past the geckos and flying pigs and take the time to shop coverage around.
If you are insured now or need new coverage, you can use this information to find the best rates while maintaining coverages. Buying car insurance in Gering is not that difficult. Nebraska consumers just need to know the most efficient way to shop for car insurance on the web.
Companies offer discounts so take them!
Car insurance companies don’t always list all available discounts in an easy-to-find place, so we researched some of the best known and the more hidden discounts you could be receiving. If they aren’t giving you every credit available, you’re paying more than you need to.
- Pay Now and Pay Less – If paying your policy premium upfront rather than paying monthly you could save up to 5%.
- Seat Belts Save more than Lives – Buckling up and requiring all passengers to buckle their seat belts can save up to 15% off your PIP or medical payments premium.
- Life Insurance Discount – Select insurance companies reward you with a discount if you purchase auto and life insurance together.
- New Car Discount – Buying coverage on a new vehicle can be considerably cheaper since new cars are generally safer.
- Passive Restraints and Air Bags – Factory air bags or motorized seat belts can get savings up to 30%.
Keep in mind that most discount credits are not given to the overall cost of the policy. Some only apply to the cost of specific coverages such as collision or personal injury protection. So when the math indicates all the discounts add up to a free policy, it just doesn’t work that way.
How to Compare Car Insurance in Gering, NE
Getting better car insurance pricing doesn’t have to be difficult. All that’s required is to take a couple of minutes comparing rate quotes provided by online insurance companies. It is quite easy and can be accomplished in a couple of different ways.
The fastest way to find low rates is an all-inclusive rate comparison click here to open form in new window. This form eliminates the need for separate quotation requests for each company. Taking the time to complete one form will get you rate comparisons from all major companies.
A more difficult way to get comparison quotes is to take the time to go to each individual company website and complete a new quote form. For example, we’ll assume you want comparison quotes from GEICO, Farmers and American Family. To get each rate you have to visit each site to input your insurance information, which is why the first method is quicker.

The least recommended method to get comparison rates is to drive around to and from local Gering insurance agencies. The ability to buy insurance online eliminates the need for an insurance agent unless you want the professional guidance of a licensed agent. You can, however, obtain prices from the web but still have the advice of a local agent and you’ll learn how to do that later.
It’s up to you which method you use, but double check that you are using apples-to-apples coverage information for each comparison quote. If the quotes have different values for each quote it will be next to impossible to determine the best price in Gering.
One last thing
The cheapest car insurance can be sourced both online and also from your neighborhood Gering agents, so compare prices from both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. There are still a few companies who may not provide online quoting and many times these regional insurance providers only sell through independent insurance agents.
As you restructure your insurance plan, it’s not a good idea to skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are too many instances where someone dropped collision coverage to discover at claim time that the savings was not a smart move. The aim is to buy a smart amount of coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
