Check out the Competition
You might be familiar with a few scenarios that could make your auto insurance rates change: You bought a new car, moved, got in a car accident, or even got married or graduated from school. In all these cases, it’s important to shop around for car insurance to ensure you’re getting adequate coverage — at the right rate — to meet your needs.
Even if you’re happy with your car insurance company, simply checking out the competition on a regular basis can help keep your current rate low because it indicates to your insurance company that you’re on the lookout for better deals, and your insurer will, therefore, be motivated to keep you.
Insurance rates and policy details vary widely by insurer and by person. If you get a quote from a dozen insurance companies, many of the quotes might look quite similar, while others might show your premium varying by hundreds of dollars. Even if your rates and coverage were equal among a handful of insurance companies, we remind you: It’s not all about price.
Insurance is intended to protect you when you need it — legally, medically, financially. You want to make sure you choose the company and service that meets your needs and has your back. If you’re not getting that support, you might consider changing insurance companies.
