A Car Insurance Broker May Save You Money

Insurance Blog

With the rapidly rising costs caused by inflation, saving money in most households is vital. While you may not have much control over the rising grocery and gas prices, you may be able to cut a few costs off your auto insurance. Fortunately, you do not have to find these savings on your own. A car insurance broker may be able to find these savings for you. Where will the savings come from? Here are things your broker can do for you.

Shop Around

When you purchase an insurance policy from an insurance agent, that agent is limited to the policies of the single provider of their employer. They are only able to offer that product line and nothing else. The agent works for and represents that line of insurance.

When you work with an insurance broker, the broker works for you. They contract with multiple providers who offer numerous types and lines of insurance. Because your broker is not in allegiance with any particular provider, they can shop around for the best policy for you and your situation.

If and when your policy increases in price, you are able to have your broker shop around for a better price. Most commissioned-based brokers have no problem doing this. The new business will generate income.

Look For Discounts

Are you a senior citizen? Do you have excellent credit? Have you been accident-free for the last few years? Have you taken a defensive driving class? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you may be entitled to a car insurance discount. 

An auto insurance broker will not only know who offers the discounts you are entitled to, but they will also know who may be willing to stack discounts. Ensure your broker knows what discounts you may be eligible for so they can be on the lookout.

Review Your Renewal

Does it not seem like auto insurance renewal roll around quickly? If you are like most people and have it set up on auto-pay, you simply stick it in your insurance file. Unfortunately, this is not the right thing to do. 

Reviewing your renewal may provide ideas on where you can make changes that may save you money in the long run. Your broker will be willing to review your renewal, look for these savings opportunities, and make cost-saving suggestions. All you have to do is ask them to do it.

Health Insurance Haze: Clarifying The Policy Information

When I lost my job, I also lost my health insurance. I've never had to buy health insurance on my own before, so when I went to my insurance agent, I had no idea where to start. The coverage options, deductibles, co-pays, and premiums were confusing. I wasn't sure how to make sense of all of the tiers and doctor's networks. I created this site to help others who've never purchased health insurance before. The posts here are full of resources for insurance coverage, and I hope that it will help you to find the policy that's right for you.
