Why are Pickup trucks so expensive to insure?

Why are Pickup trucks so expensive to insure?

ok, I’m 17 and I own a 1999 Dodge Ram 4×4. I pay an insane amount for insurance, and I know I’m a teenager, but I haven’t had any tickets or accidents to make it go up. Anyway, my truck is really common in my area, there are Ford, Chevy, and Dodge trucks everywhere you look. But yet I compare the insurance of my truck to a brand new Camaro SS, and the Camaro way cheaper, Heck I compared it to a Brand new Mercedes Benz CLS63 AMG, and it’s still way cheaper. I’m thinking about getting a little newer Dodge Ram, but the insurance is a little more expensive on it than what I’m already paying. So why are trucks the most expensive vehicles to insure? I mean if they are in a low speed accident, they don’t cost nearly as much to fix as a Brand new expensive car such as a Mercedes with expensive parts, and trucks don’t get damaged as easily either. It’s kind of frustrating that I have a 11 year old vehicle that you see everywhere, and the cost to insure it is outrageous already, but even If I get the same truck only 5 years old, it’s even more to insure, which is understandable seeing how it’s newer. I know trucks are big, but even a Brand new Suburban cost less to insure than my 11 year old truck. The truck I’m thinking about buying is the most expensive vehicle possible to insure on a standard drivers license.

Car insurance question?

My mother’s boyfriend bought a car and has allowed me to drive it. He is the primary driver on the insurance. I am also on his insurance. My father just recently put me on his insurance. My mom’s boyfriend wants to give the car to me (Transfer the title and registration, get new plates and all that.) He says I will need my own insurance under my own name. But if I am insured does it actually matter who’s insurance it is?


If I am added as an added driver to a car, how much will the insurance be? Please see details:?

If my parents were to get a mini 2004 for example, and they both have no claims and no license points, (so their insurance is about £350 each) how much would it cost to add me (a new driver aged 17) to their car. If one of parents was to be insured, and I was added as a named driver I mean. Roughly speaking. And yes, it would be a new car that my parents hadn’t driven before. I am the UK by the way, so I am talking about £ not $. Thank you for all contributions!


Looking for good company to buy term life insurance?

I appreciate all of the help. We know exactly the type of policy we want and the only debts we have are mortgage, college loan and 6 months payments on 1 car. Our financial situation is good but neither my husband nor I can live without each other’s income and owe 28 yrs on our mortgage so it is imperative that we get a term policy asap. I’m choosing not to go with Primerica since I have gotten quotes from other companies for around $70 for both of us. I do not wish to pay for services I don’t need. I want a term policy and that is all. I will not be using New York Life either since I told the agent exactly what we wanted, how much, why, and which riders to add and all he did was try to talk me out of it and sell me a whole life policy. I am willing to bypass an agent and deal with the company directly if I continue to be unsuccessful with the agents that I’ve been in contact with. Can anyone recommend an insurance company that I should look into? I’m not interested in any mor

Given an inaccurate insurance quote?

So, in the process of getting a new vehicle I took two VIN numbers to a man at the insurance agency I’ve used for the past three years. The two numbers were for an ’08 and an ’09 car (the ’08 first just to get a reference). He tells me the approximate increase in my monthly bill will be around $47.50 (for the ’09). I go ahead and buy the car, my monthly bill has gone up just right over $200 more. I have already bought the car, paid for the tax, title, licensing and registration… and there is no way I can pay that much more in insurance (college kid here), so I’m going to have to get rid of the car, pay insurance on it for a portion of a month, and pay all the necessary fees on another vehicle. I will easily have lost $1000 because of this guy’s inability to do his job. Of course, I didn’t get anything in writing (having gone there for three years and never having any other problems…). I really don’t know what to do and I’m quite upset about it. Any suggestions?

Life insurance policy?

Ok so I’m 23 -24 in may- and I’ve been thinking about opening up a life insurance policy for myself due to the fact that I drive to earn a living. I am driving during the most busiest hours of the day and I see alot of accidents on the road as well. In case your wondering what I do, I am a contract driver for the usps. No I dont deliver house to house nor do I drive the little blue and white square vans and wear the hideous uniforms lol since I’m a contract driver I receive no benefits which sucks but I make enough to put aside for that. Not to many people my age think this far ahead like I do. And in case something were to happen I want my family to be worry free and not be stuck in debt in the event of my death….if it were to happen on the road. So is there an age requirement for opening a life insurance policy? Whats a good place to go with? And could anyone give me tips or advice on this situation. (I’d ask my family but I dont want them to know until it happens)

Car accident with no insurance?

I’m 19, and the car I was driving was constantly breaking down. When it was completely broken for two months, I stopped paying my insurance and instead saved back money to get the car fixed. My insurance canceled during that time. When I got it fixed on Friday, I was planning on renewing my insurance Tuesday, a day I had off work. Unfortunately, Saturday morning I got into a car accident. I was turning out of my apartment entrance to get to a middle lane where I could then get onto another road, and somehow didn’t see a car close enough to hit me. He t boned me in the drivers side. Somehow neither of us got hurt. My car is pretty much done and his car, while not as bad as mine, did get some split open damage. The ticket says the damage is worth 3,000. Since I had no insurance at the time, how will this get payed??? I have a court date on the 9th to discuss the fact of my no insurance…I’ll have coverage by then of course, but I’d like to know what I should expect…

So here’s the deal… we are renting an apartment and the lease and all the bill’s are in my dad’s name. However, money is tight and i don’t understand why we should be forced to pay the 20$ a month for renter’s insurance… especially when we don’t intend to stay here for very long. I just canceled my card and got an email that the coverage will lapse if i don’t renew the credit card. I just don’t want to screw my dad over and have this effect him since it is in his name. Does anyone know how this works? It’s with esurance. thank you

Question about Car insurance (UK)?

Does anyone know if / how mileage for year is calculated for insurance purposes. What do the insurers check for these details? I have a private policy for my second car (my non work runaround) and it is limited to 3000miles per year. Perfect for trips to the dump, bulky or messy trips to the shops etc. I lend the car to my partners foreign parents who use their own insurance policy (cheaper for them) to drive it during their vacations to the UK 2-3 times a year adding quite a bit of mileage to the vehicle. If we both have insurance to be driving my car, am I at fault for claiming low mileage allowance for cheaper insurance for the car?
