I figured that I would do a survey with my friends this week on Auto Insurance, so I asked them, “What is your MAIN concern about your Auto Insurance?” Although I got different answers… Prices, Coverages, one even told me that she doesn’t completely understand her Auto Insurance Policy, so I took it apon myself to explain it to her. She is paying every month for it, the least I could do was help her learn to understand. And that’s when I had my “AHA!” moment.. Instead of going through a “Direct Company”, why not go through an “Agency” instead. You will get a lot more than just a computerized voice over the phone, telling you what prompts to dial, you won’t be on hold for who knows how long.. You can talk to the SAME person EVERY time you call.. The list goes on and on.. Here is an article for you to look over and it will show you some other “Perks” of having an Agent instead of a Direct Company alone..

Biggest Factor In Your Auto Insurance Rate.. CREDIT!

Mainaining Insurance

The Importance Of MAINTAINING Your Insurance Policies… Companies look at you as Credit, without Prior Insurance you are just NEW Credit to them and that doesn’t look good on your behalf. When a Company sees that you have maintained Insurance on your vehicle(s) they automatically give you a HUGE discount! We all have to start somewhere, but once you start up your Insurance, keep it going, it is SO important and benefits YOU in the long run!

“One of the biggest factors in determining your car insurance rates has nothing to do with your driving record. Lenders commonly use your credit history to determine how risky a driver you will be. Read more about this growing trend and how you can save on auto insurance.”
