You may be an expert at lowering your monthly expenses and, sure, cutting costs is great for your wallet. However, cutting corners on your auto policy could end up costing you more in the long run. To help you save money without the worry, we’ve outlined four steps to finding a better rate the safe way.
Use an independent agent
A independent agent is a valuable source of knowledge when it comes to finding discounts you may be eligible to receive. Staying informed about the latest trends in the insurance industry is a high priority for agents and they will often know when a change occurs that may qualify you for a discount. To find out more about the benefits of using an independent agent, read our previous post on the topic.
Take advantage of discounts
Just like your cable/internet/phone bill, many insurance companies offer multi policy discounts. You can bundle those auto/home/life policies to save even more! You may also take advantage of multi vehicle, claim free and safe driver discounts. Contact your insurance agent to find out if you are eligible for any discounts.
Choose a vehicle that’s inexpensive to insure
Choosing which car to purchase can be a difficult decision. We help make it a little easier by letting you know which ones are cheapest to insure. Check out this list to see the top ten least expensive 2016 models to insure or call us before making that purchase and we can compare rates for you.
Know the details of your policy
Take the time to carefully review your policy to ensure it is updated with the most current information. Check the vehicles and drivers to make sure it accurately reflects your coverage needs and make changes where necessary.
Yes, it is possible to keep more money in your wallet. But when it comes to insurance, find smart ways to decrease your costs without sacrificing coverage that will protect you in the event of a loss. Because saving a few bucks is never worth losing the security to protect the things you love.
