No one likes paying any kind of insurance, right? It’s just one of those necessary adulting chores we face on a regular basis. That said, there are ways of lowering the costs associated with this expense. You can go high tech with telematics. That’s the little device your auto insurance company mails to you for you to plug into your vehicle. It measures your speed, braking distance and the average distance you travel over a pre-set course of time. It helps your insurance company provide you a quote specifically based on the way you drive rather than national averages. There are other options, though, in case you have a lead foot.
Do Your Homework
You can accomplish lowering your auto insurance by employing one or two steps. While some of these steps may seem tedious, consider your payoff.
- Compare quotes from different companies or bundle your homeowners and auto insurance from the same company.
- When buying a new car, check out the price of the average insurance policy for that make/model.
- Reduce the coverage on older vehicles.
- Maintain good credit.
Look into group coverage through your employer, drivers’ education course discounts or good student incentives. Some companies reward you for not having an accident or ticket for a set number of years.
Doing the work to lower your automobile insurance can pay off over the long run.
