Because your car insurance premiums often depend on a number of different factors, such as driving experience, driving record, make and model of your car and more, it can get quite expensive. However, there are a few ways that you can get better rates on your car insurance.
First of all, don’t just pick up the first insurance policy you’re offered. Shop around by comparing rates at different auto insurance companies. Not all of the rates are the same, which means that you can find something more affordable if you just look a little bit harder. This is why choosing an independent insurance agent is best. We can cut out the investigative work for you, and that is where the true value lies.

When comparing insurance companies, be sure to ask one of our insurance advisors whether there are any discounts available. Many insurance companies will provide discounts to individuals that they deem as a lesser risk. You can often get these discounts by owning multiple cars, completing driver education courses, being a good student, investing in anti-theft devices as well as additional safety devices and more.
When you file a claim, remember that the frequency of your claims can cause your auto insurance rates to go up. This doesn’t meant that you shouldn’t file any claims, especially if you were in an accident and have expensive repairs to make. However, smaller issues, such as a chip in the paint job or other non-serious cosmetic issues that don’t cost much to fix, you may want to consider paying for yourself.
