Is your loyalty costing you money?
Every year one of the biggest expenses for a family to incur is car insurance and homeowners insurance. Insurance companies are doing everything they can to get our attention today, but how do you know if you have the right coverage at a fair price?
Paul and Sue Rodman of Atlanta are parents to three growing boys, the oldest on the verge of getting his driver's license. They are looking at spending approximately $1500 more on insurance and that’s on top of the $2800 they're already paying annually for auto and homeowners insurance.
Paul Rodman admits that he had been with the same insurance company since he was 16 and never thought of shopping around for his insurance. Insurance companies are known for pushing rates up on these types of innocent, loyal customers. A good tip to securing the best insurance rate is to shop or have an Independent Insurance Agent shop your insurance approximately every three years. This will insure that you are always receiving the best insurance coverage and value available in the market.
Mr. Rodman took the advice of a leading expert and shopped his auto insurance and found different quotes ranging from $918 to $1800. That is nearly double the cost for the exact same policy. This of course can be confusing to most, which is why it is important to have a trusted local Independent Insurance Agent do the shopping for you. An Independent Agent will consult with you and provide you with a range of options that best fit your individual needs. The Agent will also insure you receive all discounts that apply to your policy (and there are quite a few discounts out there). Many factors determine your insurance rate and they will help simplify and determine what is best for you and your family.
At the end of the day, Mr. Rodman saved his family $1500 a year in insurance cost. He has the same exact coverage with another A+ Insurance Carrier and is no longer a loyal slave to the same big insurance company as he has been the majority of his life. Way to go Mr. Rodman… Now how much do you think you could save?
