Buying Tips

 Taking a closer look at seven of these factors that affect your car insurance premiums can clear things up—and some of them also come with bonus suggestions for keeping the costs down.

Your policy and deductibles

It's a given that you will choose your car insurance deductible and decide whether to add additional coverage that isn't necessarily required by the laws in your state. The specifics of your policy and deductibles play a major role in your monthly payment.Generally, choosing a higher deductible means a lower monthly payment; choosing a lower deductible means a higher monthly payment. Additional coverage gives you added insurance protection, depending on the claim, but will also add to your monthly costs.Also, consider that many insurers will offer discounts if you use them for multiple products, such as auto and home insurance.

What you drive

Car insurance providers often develop vehicle safety ratings by collecting a large amount of data from customer claims and analyzing industry safety reports, and they offer discounts to customers who drive safer vehicles.The opposite can apply for dangerous, flashy rides. Some insurers increase premiums for cars more susceptible to damage, occupant injury, or theft, and they lower rates for those that fare better than the norm on those measures.Driving vehicles that rate highly in terms of driver protection and passenger protection, like recent model year Toyota 4Runners, mean discounts on insurance. And while two-door Honda Civics are one of the country's most popular vehicles, their lower-than-average safety ratings and desirability to car thieves make them more expensive to insure.So before you head down to the dealership, do some research. Does the vehicle that has caught your eye have strong safety ratings? Is this specific model often stolen? Knowing the answers to a few simple questions can go a long way in keeping your rates low.

How often, and how far, you drive

People who use their car for business and long-distance commuting normally pay more than those who drive less. The more miles you drive in a year, the higher the chances of a crash - regardless of how safe a driver you are.Consider joining a car or van pool, riding your bike, or taking public transportation to work. If you reduce your total annual driving mileage enough, you may lower your premiums.

Where you live

Generally, due to higher rates of vandalism, theft, and crashes, urban drivers pay more for car insurance than do those in small towns or rural areas.

Your driving record

Drivers who cause crashes generally must pay more than those who have gone crash-free for several years.If you've been crash-free for a long period of time, don't get complacent. Remain vigilant and maintain your good driving habits.And even though you can't rewrite your driving history, having a crash on your record can be an important reminder always to drive with caution and care. As time goes on, the effect of past crashes on your premiums will decrease.

Your credit history

It has been shown certain credit information can be predictive of future insurance claims. Where applicable, many insurance companies use credit history to help determine the cost of car insurance. Maintaining good credit can have a positive impact on the cost of your car insurance.

Your age, sex, and marital status

Crash rates are higher for all drivers under age 25, especially single males. Insurance prices in most states reflect these differences.If you're a student, you might also be in line for a discount. Most car insurers provide discounts to student-drivers who maintain good grades.

Speaking of discounts

 Homeowner's insurance is designed to bring your home and possessions back to the same condition they were in before a loss occurred. There are several different types of homeowner's insurance policies offered by a wide variety of insurance companies. As a result, not all coverage's are the same. It is important to review all your options and coverage's so you can make an informed decision.What affects the price of homeowners insurance


Below are the most critical factors:

The amount of coverage

How much coverage you choose has a significant impact on the price of the policy. If you have some particularly valuable items such as expensive jewelry or antiques, they probably won't be covered in your general homeowner's insurance policy. You may need a rider to include extra coverage generally in a policy. ECG homeowner's insurance policies include the foor those items not included in the allowing coverage's:

  • Dwelling coverage up to the limits you choose to purchase.
  • Coverage for your personal property up to the limits you choose to purchase. (Be sure to ask about Replacement Cost coverage for your personal property.)
  • Coverage for structures in addition to your primary dwelling, such as storage sheds, boathouses, and pools.
  • Coverage for loss of use, reimbursing you for expenses for loss of use of your home caused by covered perils.
  • Medical expenses, paying up to $1,000 per person if someone is injured on your property.
  • Liability exposures, protecting you against certain risks up to $100,000* per accident for bodily injury or property damage.
  • Higher limits of liability and medical expense coverage's, available for a small charge.

Location

Expect to pay a higher premium rate if you live in an area prone to natural disasters.

Neighborhood Crime

Discounts are usually offered if you purchase a home security system.

Fire Safeguards

It will help your homeowner's insurance policy rates if you live near a firehouse. Even if your home is not located in close proximity to a firehouse, it is a good idea to rid the area around your home of as many fire hazards as possible.

Condition, Materials and Age of the Home

Many homeowners probably do not have a clue what building materials were used when their home was built, but most know its age. Brick homes carry lower insurance premiums than would a house made from mostly wood or other flammable materials. Generally speaking, insurance companies charge higher premiums for an older home or one that is not well maintained.

Claims

For current homeowner insurance policies, the frequency of your claim record will translate into higher rates. Carefully evaluate every claim before submitting it for reimbursement. Ask yourself, if the claim is worth risking a hike in your premium next year? Preventive maintenance, and keeping up with small problems, will prevent larger and more costly ones in the future.

Credit Score

No insurance company can refuse you coverage based on a low credit report score (Alone or Soley). What they can do is take your score into account, and if it is high enough, they may offer a discount.

Deductible Amount

There is a rule of thumb for homeowner's insurance policies: The lower your deductible, the higher your premium. A higher deductible could reduce your premium costs up to 25 percent.Take a few minutes to get a free, no obligation homeowner's insurance quote, and see just how affordable our rates can be.
