SafeAuto Insurance Offers Five Tips to Save Money on Car Insurance
COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - SafeAuto Insurance Company
offers drivers five tips to save money on car insurance. SafeAuto's
tips are based on more than a decade of experience in the automobile
insurance industry, offering state required insurance coverage to an underserved market.
"The combination of high gas prices and an unsteady economy has consumers
keeping an eye on every dollar they spend, and automobile insurance is no
exception," Jon Diamond, president of SafeAuto said. "A growing number of
people who may have never thought about shopping auto insurance prices are
looking for low cost insurance options. Keeping customers legal for less
has always been the central mission at SafeAuto Insurance Company."
SafeAuto recommends the following tips to save money on car insurance:
1. Some cars cost more to insure. Sports cars and the more expensive models
are simply more expensive to insure because they are more expensive to
repair in an accident. Do some research before you buy, and ask your
existing insurance company if they use any specific criteria to determine
the cost of insuring a vehicle. Also realize cars can be re-classified
causing your insurance rates to increase.
2. Arm yourself with an alarm. Installing safety and anti-theft devices
lower your risk profile. The lower the risk of theft, the less expensive it
will be to insure your vehicle. Be sure to tell your insurance company
about the devices you have installed.
3. Reduce drive time. Drivers who average 40 miles or less a day qualify
for low mileage discounts with most car insurance companies.
4. Determine a deductible amount. Higher deductibles usually mean cheaper
insurance policies. If you are prepared to pay a higher amount in the event
of an accident, you can save money by increasing your deductible.
5. Play it Safe.
Your driving record can significantly impact your insurance costs. If
you've had multiple accidents or moving violations you're likely to have a
higher insurance bill. Drivers with safe driving records also often qualify
for discounts on their policies. The easiest way to be a safe driver is to
pay attention to your driving. Do not use cell phones or other electronic
devices while driving, and never drive while under the influence of drugs
