Saving Money in these crazy times

With the ups and downs of the market, and all that is going on, saving money is very important. But equally important is the financial stability of your insurance company. So if you are looking to save money, you might be looking to save money by switching companies that offer a better price.

Before you make the jump, call your current company if you have a good relationship with them. There are many discounts that you might be entitled to that are out there, so make sure that you update your information. We reach out to our clients regularly, and try to make sure that they are getting them. But with life being busy, they don't always get back to me.

Some discounts to look for on your car insurance are: Good driver, driving less than 7,500 miles a year, Good Student, Prepay, EZ-Pay, Defensive Driver, Retired, Multiple Policy, and many more. So make sure that if you have anything changing in your life, update your file with your carrier.

And the financial stability of the carriers are more important now than ever. There are some major companies that are in serious trouble out there. What that will mean to you is future rate increases are coming. So make sure that your carrier is on stable ground. If you have any questions about that, then give me a call.
