All Questions on Deductibles

Why is my Progressive quote so much lower than my State Farm policy?
Would that higher deductibles make such a large difference in monthly premiums? I have a policy with State Farm and I am insuring four vehicles, all full coverage. Progressive recently gave me a quote that saves about $120 per month! The only difference is the deductibles are set at $1000 vs my current deductible of $250.
