Auto insurance is pretty much a no brainer. It’s required by law to have so you get a policy and pay your premiums, end of story right? Well, it shouldn’t be. The average person buys a policy and doesn’t think about it again. It is really important, however, to do a periodic check up on your auto insurance policy to make sure you are covered adequately and are receiving all of the discounts you are entitled to. Many changes occur over the years in life like getting married, buying a house, and having a baby. Your auto insurance needs change over the years as well. Having the same coverage limits you did when you were first on your own may not be enough to cover your assets if you were sued in an automobile accident. Talk to your insurance agent to ensure that you have enough liability coverage. Another good thing to do is ask your agent if you are receiving all of the discounts that you are entitled to. There are a ton of discounts available and they may not necessarily be applied to your policy. Some examples of these discounts are good student discount, defensive driver discount, multi-policy discount, mature driver discount and the list goes on. Many of these discounts are not automatically added to your policy so it does not hurt to ask what discounts your insurance company offers. Next, get a few different quotes from other reputable companies for the same coverage that you have. This will give you a good idea if you are paying too much and may give you incentive to switch. By just taking a few extra steps to review your policy each year you could save enough each month to fill up your gas tank.
