Know What You Need to Save Big On Auto Insurance

Aug 17, 2007
Keeping up with an automobile can be an expensive venture. There are monthly payments, maintenance, gas and repair bills to worry about. And then, of course, there's insurance, which can really put a drain on a wallet. But, there are lots of cheap insurance policies available to help drivers even with not so perfect records save some money.

There's no reason to pay an arm and a leg for insurance; even when there's an accident or a ticket or two in a driver's history. There are plenty of companies that offer reasonable and even "cheap" rates without cutting corners on the coverage.These companies can even be big-name insurers who are looking to boost their client base and compete with others or they may be relatively new carriers wanting to make a name for themselves. Insurance is a number game and sometimes those numbers can pay off in a driver's favor.

The Internet can be one of the best tools for finding a good insurance carrier that doesn't charge an exorbitant amount for auto coverage. By allowing a quick comparison from multiple companies, this tool helps cut out the middle man and can really garner a shopper some serious savings.

When shopping for insurance, there are some things to consider to make certain the policy bought is quality even if the price is cheap. They include:

* Be certain what ever is purchased matches at least a state's minimum legal requirements. If it doesn't, it won't matter how cheap the policy is, it won't be worth the money. The fines for not having the right type of policy can be steep, so do be sure to understand what they are in your location.

* Only get the kind of coverage you need. Even top name insurance companies can provide decent rates for those with tarnished records, but getting the decent rate might require seriously considering every portion of coverage. Don't buy things that aren't necessary. If, for example, you have an extra car at your disposal, don't pay for rental coverage. Should you have a great medical insurance policy, don't invest in huge amounts of personal injury protection. Do, however, make certain the parts of the policy you need cover your bases.

* Check into an insurance company's background. A cheap policy isn't a great buy if the company that writes the policy isn't solvent enough to pay claims. Make sure the company you go with has a good record in the field. If it's a start up company, see if they've handled other types of insurance in the past and recently added auto coverage. Sometimes this will be the case.

* Ask about payout track records. Insurance companies that make each and every claim a chore on their clients aren't worth dealing with. While it's certainly true insurance companies should investigate and protect themselves from fraud, giving clients a difficult time unnecessarily is a sign to stay away.

* Review what your loan requirements may be. When buying a policy, be certain that cheap rate actually meets the requirements of your loan. If it doesn't, you might find yourself with a second bill in the mail. Auto loan companies don't take kindly to their investments not being covered correctly.

No matter your insurance requirements, shop around. If possible, compare multiple policies for your car and your personal situation and pick the best fit.
