For most people, buying a new car is an exciting experience; however, that excitement diminishes when you are presented with the state requirement of purchasing insurance for that vehicle. Here are a few tips to make the auto insurance buying process a little easier.
Several factors determine your car insurance premium.
- Marital status
- Vehicle type
- Driving history
The younger you are, the higher your premium. The get the best rate, you need to use a company that caters specifically to younger drivers. (Contact an independent agent or call (678) 889-5496 for access to such markets.)
One of the benefits of being married may be a lower premium. If you are not married, there may be other ways to save. Having a good driving history with no violations, previous insurance (especially in Georgia,) and selecting a higher deductible may actually lower your premium.
For policy renewals, it is better to contact your agent before you accept the renewal quote because they might be able to find a cheaper quote for you. If they cannot, stick with the policy renewal especially if you’ve had a dent in your driving history (accumulated some tickets.)
Finally, when you shop around for a car, determine whether the vehicle has a high theft rate. Vehicles are rated differently by the insurance companies.
