Don’t buy your teen a car. Instead, they can use a car that you already own. Putting a teen on your policy is much cheaper than getting them separate insurance. If your teenager is on honor roll, it might be good enough for a discount.
You do not need a lawyer unless you have a claim over $25K. The better option is to cooperate with your adjuster in order to reach a deal. Hiring an attorney is expensive and with the percentage they will take, it usually is not worth the headache.
To save cash when buying auto insurance for a teenage driver, be sure to determine if you will pay less if you get them a separate policy or if you should just add them to the policy that you have. Depending on the vehicles involved it is sometimes cheaper overall to buy them a different policy.
Your credit score can affect how much you will pay for auto insurance. Like many other companies, auto insurance agencies check credit. Credit scores can be factored into the cost of your automotive insurance. Poor credit may actually result in a higher premium. Your insurance will stay low and your credit will be in better shape.
If someone who is covered on your insurance is no longer driving your vehicle, be sure you take them off your policy promptly. Taking inactive drivers off your policy can reduce your overall insurance cost, because your insurance company no longer has to cover them.
Figure out what kind of insurance coverage you should have for your car. You probably don’t need every insurance coverage option. You may want to fork over a little extra for collision coverage if you are accident prone.
You can pay less for auto insurance if you subscribe to a bundle insurance. Bundling it with your homeowner’s coverage, for instance, may drop the price of your auto premiums. You will need to get good coverage and a good deal, you may need to get two insurance companies or policies to achieve this.
If your car is in good shape and you own some assets that you need to protect, your level of liability coverage should be at least 100/200/100. In most states you are required to have a designated minimum level of liability coverage, so always make sure to be covered by this minimum amount in case of an accident.
Get auto insurance recommendations from local auto repair shops. People who work at a body shop have to interact with insurance adjusters on a regular basis. Repair shops work with insurance companies all the time, so they know which ones are a breeze to work with and which ones stonewall and delay payments.
When you get into a car accident, notify the police. Police officers are trained on what information to collect and what other steps are necessary after an accident. When you have to contact the insurance company, the police can be extremely helpful. Contact law enforcement immediately after ascertaining that all individuals involved in the accident are unharmed.
