Proven Ways to Reduce Your Personal Insurance

Insurance conceptAre you paying too much for your home and auto insurance? Are you tired of not getting the right combination of coverage, price, and service? If this is you, then please read this article.

There are many ways to save on your personal insurance, but don’t be fooled into thinking that a low price equals the coverage you need.

Cheap insurance can lead to poor service, uninsured claims, and an increase in your actual out-of-pocket costs.

 Finding the right personal insurance involves three areas.

  1. Price
  2. Services
  3. Coverage

Price is always important. That is why we shop your personal insurance with many different insurers.

Service is part of your policy. We evaluate companies on how they handle billing issues, claims adjusting, and general administrative services that they provide to their clients. 

Coverage is the most important part of your personal insurance program. We help you find the right coverage at the right price.

It is also important to read your policies and make sure you understand what kind of home and auto insurance you have.

Here Are Ways to Save On Your Home and Auto Insurance

Review your deductibles

Consider paying higher out-of-pocket expenditures instead of smaller deductibles with higher premiums on your home and auto insurance if your budget permits it. If you're ready to take on additional risk, insurance providers may lower your premiums.

But be cautious. You'll be regretful if a calamity occurs and you don't have the funds to afford the higher deductible. So make sure you have enough money in your emergency reserve to cover the deductible.

Always ask about various discounts

When you combine your house and auto insurance with the same company, you can often get a discount. However, there are other less obvious discounts that might help you save money. 

If you reside near a fire station or a fire hydrant, some companies provide reductions on homeowner's insurance. If you have dependents on your auto insurance, inquire about student discounts or discounts for good grades. Don't forget to inquire about all the discounts for advanced vehicle safety features.
