How Can I Find Cheap Car Insurance?

Like anything, you get what you pay for.
2/8/2012

There is no such thing as cheap car insurance. Like anything, you get what you pay for.

With that out of the way, there are ways to decrease your car insurance rates.

 

Shop for the Best Auto Insurance Rates
The best place to start is by contacting an independent insurance agent. As opposed to captive agents, who are limited to one carrier, independent insurance agents offer multiple product lines and thereby exposing you to increased opportunities for savings.

 

Buying a new or used car?
Check the insurance rates before signing that contract. Knowledge is power and, in this case, good financial sense.

 

What type of car do you drive?
Look at the type of car you are driving. Is it racy convertible? Sportier cars attract younger, riskier drivers, therefore they can be more expensive to insure. On other end of the spectrum, it would seem like larger, boxier vehicles, like SUVs, may be less expensive to Insure. Not true. Due to their extra weight and greater potential to inflict damage, these cars can also be expensive to insure. In general, mid-size sedans offer the best insurance rates.

 

Move to a Lower Crime Area
If you live in a high theft area, consider getting a different vehicle.

Clean your driving record
Tickets and accidents build bad driving records and your finances. To buy back some dependability and reduce your insurance rates, take a defensive driving class. A variety of in-class and on-line courses are available and are often directed at specific target audiences such as mature drivers and truck drivers.

 

Teen drivers at home?
Good grades pay off in many forms, including insurance discounts. Exact amounts vary among carriers.

 

Consolidate your policies with one company
How easy is this! Buying your home and auto insurance from the same company earns you a discount and an A+ in economics.
