Save More on Auto Insurance!
July 16th, 2015 — Martinson Agency LLC — Chaska, MN
Whether you drive an old beater or cruise around in a brand new ride, having auto insurance is required by law in the state of Minnesota. This means you should be looking for ways to save money on your insurance. Here are some cost-saving tips to keep in mind when purchasing auto insurance.
Inquire About All Available Discounts
Ask your agent about all of the discounts you may be eligible for. Many companies have started to offer a paperless discount. This means that all of your bills and documents would be sent to your preferred email address versus your home address. You can also reduce your monthly payments by having it automatically deducted from a checking or savings account. Additionally, many companies have an advance quote discount. This means that if you begin the quoting process 10 or more days prior to the policy being issued you can save as well.
Take A Defensive Driving Course
Safe drivers typically have the most affordable auto insurance. If you are 55+ and are looking for an easy way to save on your insurance, consider taking a defensive driving course. This course will be taught by a professional driving instructor and will teach you about avoiding danger on the road. Once you take the course simply provide us with a completion certificate and we will apply the discount to your existing auto insurance policy.
Bundle Your Insurance Policies
By packaging your auto insurance and your home insurance with the same company you will receive a multi-policy discount. This can provide significant savings on both products and often times provides additional perks such as a single deductible. A single deductible means that if you have a claim that impacts both policies you will NOT be stuck paying a deductible on both.
Bottom Line: You Have Options
Don’t get caught up with everything you see on TV. Many of the most well known carriers are “captive” companies and can only provide you with one quote. Our agency is independent, meaning we have more carriers than the competition. More carriers means more discounts. More discounts means you get to keep more of your hard earned money in your pocket.
