Expert Advice: Steps to Find Cheap Auto Insurance

Insurance Agent Getting Signature for Damaged Car

Can low-cost car insurance mean drivers are sacrificing quality?

Low cost insurance doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality. The most important thing is to check your current limits. Many people think that by lowering their coverage limits, they are saving money. However, by lowering your limits, you open yourself up to liability vulnerability because you might not have enough insurance to cover the cost to replace your vehicle or even pay for medical expenses that may occur to you or someone you get into an accident with. We see this happen often when people get their insurance online with no advice from an actual agent. Oftentimes, they’ll end up with the cheapest possible price that leaves the individual underinsured.

What steps can drivers take to lower their car insurance costs?

There are many steps you can take to lower your auto insurance premiums. For students or those who are under 21 years of age, make sure you take advantage of the good student discount as well as the defensive driving course discounts. Did you know that owning your own home can also get you a credit with some auto carriers? Also, going paperless is another credit that can be applied to your account to save some money that also helps with sustainability.

What is the best way for drivers to fit auto insurance expenses into their budget?

Have a plan in place for what you can afford, and don’t be surprised. Many agents can actually quote the auto you are looking at purchasing to see what the insurance will cost before you even purchase the car. This will allow you to stay in line with your budget BEFORE you overextend yourself into something you really can’t afford.
