These five discounts can lower your insurance quotes
Insurance can be prohibitively expensive, but you may be missing some discounts to help offset the cost. Certain reductions will be credited at quote time, but occasionally some discounts must be asked about before you get the savings.
- Air Bag Discount - Vehicles equipped with air bags or motorized seat belts can qualify for discounts of up to 25% or more.
- Data Collection Discounts - Insureds that choose to allow their insurance company to spy on their driving habits by installing a telematics device such as Allstate's Drivewise and State Farm's In-Drive system might get better premium rates if they are good drivers.
- Accident Free - Aurora drivers who stay claim-free pay less in comparison to insureds who have frequent claims or accidents.
- Military Rewards - Having an actively deployed family member may lower your premium rates slightly.
- Waiver for an Accident - This one isn't a discount, but certain companies permit an accident before raising your premiums with the catch being you have to be claim-free prior to being involved in the accident.
One last thing about discounts, many deductions do not apply the the whole policy. Most only cut specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. If you do the math and it seems like you can get free auto insurance, it doesn't quite work that way.

When do I need an agent's advice?
When quoting and choosing coverage online or from an agent for your personal vehicles, there really is no perfect coverage plan. Everyone's needs are different and your insurance should unique, too. For example, these questions may help highlight whether you might need an agent's assistance.
- What companies insure drivers after a DUI or DWI?
- Is my son or daughter covered when driving my car?
- Are my friends covered when driving my car?
- Do I need motorclub coverage?
- Do I need medical payments coverage since I have good health insurance?
- I don't drive much so do I pay less?
- Am I covered if I hit my neighbor's mailbox?
- Do I need an umbrella policy?
- Am I covered when pulling a rental trailer?
If it's difficult to answer those questions, then you may want to think about talking to an agent. To find an agent in your area, fill out this quick form or click here for a list of insurance companies in your area. It is quick, free and can provide invaluable advice.
Local insurance agents
A small number of people still like to talk to an insurance agent and that is a personal choice. Agents will help you protect your assets and give you someone to call. One of the great benefits of getting online price quotes is you may find lower prices and still have a local agent.
To make it easy to find an agent, after completing this form (opens in new window), the coverage information is submitted to local insurance agents in Aurora who will give you quotes and help you find cheaper coverage. There is no need to even leave your home because prices are sent to you directly. If you need to get a rate quote from one company in particular, just find their quoting web page and complete a quote there.
Finding the right insurance company needs to be determined by more than just a cheap price quote. These questions are important to ask:
- Do they see any coverage gaps in your plan?
- Where would glass claims be handled in Aurora?
- How long has their agency been open in Aurora?
- What is the financial rating for the quoted company?
- Do they prorate repair cost based on vehicle mileage?
- Is the agency active in community causes in Aurora?
Car insurance agents in Aurora come in two varieties
When finding a local insurance agency, you should know the different types of agents that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Agencies in Aurora can be described as either exclusive or independent (non-exclusive). Both sell affordable auto insurance policies, but it is important to understand the differences because it may have an impact on the kind of agent you use.
Exclusive Insurance Agencies
Agents that choose to be exclusive can only quote rates from one company like Farmers Insurance, State Farm, Allstate, and AAA. They are unable to provide prices from multiple companies so you need to shop around if the rates are high. Exclusive insurance agents are very knowledgeable on the products they sell and that enables them to sell even at higher rates. Some consumers prefer to buy from exclusive agents mostly because of the prominence of the brand and the convenience of having a single billing for all their coverages.
Shown below are exclusive insurance agencies in Aurora who can help you get comparison quotes.
- American Family Insurance - Richard Ahrenkiel

Independent Agencies or Brokers
Independent agents are not restricted to one company and that enables them to quote your coverage with an assortment of companies and get you the best rates possible. If they quote lower rates, an independent agent can move your coverage and that require little work on your part. If you need lower rates, we recommend you get some free quotes from several independent insurance agents in order to compare the most rates. Most also write with small regional insurance companies that can offer cheaper rates than bigger companies.
The following is a short list of independent insurance agents in Aurora who can help you get comparison quotes.
- Diversified Commercial Insurers
2228 S Fraser St #2 - Aurora, CO 80014 - (303) 693-9343 - View Map
- BUD JUDY AGENCY, INC. (INDEPENDENT INSURANCE AGENCY)

- Focus Insurance Agency
2993 S Peoria St #144 - Aurora, CO 80014 - (303) 695-6220 - View Map
After talking to the agent and getting reasonable responses to any questions you may have and a low price estimate, it's possible that you found an insurance agency that is a good match to service your policy. But remember, consumers can cancel your coverage any time you want so never assume that you are obligated to any particular company for the full term.
Car insurance in Colorado serves several purposes
Despite the high cost of buying insurance for a Dodge Ram in Aurora, insuring your vehicle is required by state law in Colorado and it also provides benefits you may not be aware of.
- Just about all states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means you are required to carry a minimum amount of liability coverage in order to get the vehicle licensed. 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 you bought your Ram with a loan, almost all lenders will force you to buy insurance to guarantee payment of the loan. If you cancel or allow the policy to lapse, the bank or lender will purchase a policy for your Dodge for a much higher rate and require you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Car insurance protects both your Dodge Ram and your assets. It will also cover medical bills for you, your passengers, and anyone else injured in an accident. Liability coverage, the one required by state law, will also pay attorney fees if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you receive damage to your vehicle caused by a storm or accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will cover the damage repairs after a deductible is paid.
The benefits of having car insurance more than cancel out the cost, especially when you need to use it. The average driver in Colorado overpays as much as $800 each year so we recommend shopping around each time the policy renews to make sure the price is not too high.
Specific coverages for a Dodge Ram
Having a good grasp of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and the correct deductibles and limits. Policy terminology can be confusing and reading a policy is terribly boring. Below you'll find typical coverage types found on the average car insurance policy.
Coverage for medical payments
Med pay and PIP coverage reimburse you for expenses for X-ray expenses, hospital visits, prosthetic devices, ambulance fees and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. They cover all vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is not an option in every state and may carry a deductible
Uninsured and underinsured coverage
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist coverage protects you and your vehicle's occupants from other motorists when they are uninsured or don't have enough coverage. This coverage pays for injuries to you and your family and damage to your Dodge Ram.
Since a lot of drivers carry very low liability coverage limits (Colorado limits are 25/50/15), their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
This will cover damages or injuries you inflict on a person or their property by causing an accident. Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 25/50/15 that means you have $25,000 bodily injury coverage, a total of $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a limit of $15,000 paid for damaged property.
Liability insurance covers things such as attorney fees, loss of income, legal defense fees and repair bills for other people's vehicles. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is your choice, but it's cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible. Colorado state law requires minimum liability limits of 25/50/15 but drivers should carry higher limits.
This covers damage to your Ram resulting from a collision with another car or object. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision insurance covers claims such as sideswiping another vehicle, hitting a mailbox, colliding with a tree and driving through your garage door. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider removing coverage from vehicles that are older. It's also possible to bump up the deductible on your Ram to get cheaper collision coverage.
This coverage covers damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive coverage pays for things like fire damage, vandalism, damage from a tornado or hurricane and hail damage. The highest amount your car insurance company will pay is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle's value consider dropping full coverage.
In the end, you can save money
Lower-priced Dodge Ram insurance in Aurora is definitely available online and also from your neighborhood Aurora agents, so you should compare both to have the best rate selection. A few companies may not provide online rate quotes and most of the time these smaller providers provide coverage only through independent insurance agencies.
We just covered a lot of information how to save on Dodge Ram insurance in Aurora. The key thing to remember is the more you quote Aurora auto insurance, the higher your chance of finding cheaper Aurora auto insurance quotes. Drivers may even discover the lowest priced auto insurance comes from the least-expected company. Some small companies may only write in your state and offer lower rates than the large multi-state companies such as Progressive or GEICO.
