Saving Money on your Insurance Premium
Auto insurance costs most families in the United States thousands of dollars each year – with many paying more than they should.
Below are a few ways that you can reduce your car insurance premium.
1. Shop and Compare.
Insurance carriers calculate risks for drivers differently, so, it pays to shop around. Each auto insurance carrier you request a quote from will quote you a different premium.
The best place to find a wide selection of car insurance quotes is online. You can use brokers such as Netquote – brokers allow you to receive quotes from several different auto insurance companies at once.
2. Request Higher Deductibles.
A deductible is basically what you pay before an insurance policy goes into effect. This means, the higher your deductible, the less you will pay. For example, by setting a 0 deductible, you only have to pay 0 if ,000, ,000, etc., worth of damage is done to your vehicle. With a 0 deductible, you pay 0, and your insurance covers the rest.
Obviously, the higher your deductible, the more you'll have to pay if you ever have to claim any damage or an accident on your insurance policy. However, on a month-to-month basis, your insurance costs will be substantially lower with a higher deductible.
3. Other Items to Lower Car Insurance
There are many less substantial ways to lower your insurance. Try to keep your credit as good as possible, as it doesn't only have an affect on the items you finance in life, but the rates you receive from some insurance carriers, as well.
The fewer miles you put on your vehicle each year, the less you will pay with low-mileage discounts. You can also receive discounts for having multiple insurance polices (home, life, rental, etc.) with the same insurance company that provides you with auto insurance. And, of course, the biggest way to drastically reduce your insurance premium is by keeping a ticket and accident free driving record.
