Why do I need car insurance?
Even though rates can get expensive, maintaining insurance serves a purpose in several ways.
- The majority of states have minimum mandated liability insurance limits which means you are required to carry specific minimum amounts of liability protection in order to drive the car. In North Carolina these limits are 30/60/25 which means you must have $30,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $60,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
- If your vehicle has a loan, more than likely the lender will make it a condition of the loan that you have insurance to ensure loan repayment if the vehicle is totalled. If you let the policy lapse, the lender will be forced to insure your vehicle at a significantly higher premium and require you to pay a much higher amount than you were paying before.
- Insurance preserves not only your vehicle but also your financial assets. It will also pay for hospital and medical expenses for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. Liability insurance also covers legal expenses if you are sued as the result of an accident. If you have damage to your vehicle as the result of the weather or an accident, collision and comprehensive coverages will pay to restore your vehicle to like-new condition.
The benefits of insuring your car outweigh the cost, especially when you need to use it. On average, a vehicle owner in Mooresville overpays as much as $855 a year so we recommend shopping around at every renewal to ensure rates are competitive.
Smaller companies may have the best rates
Car insurance providers like State Farm, GEICO and Progressive continually stream ads on television and other media. They all seem to seem to make the promise about saving some big amount if you move your coverage to them. But how can every company save you money on car insurance? Here is the trick they use.
Most companies have an ideal profile for a prospective insured they prefer to insure. An example of a profitable customer could be over the age of 45, has no claims, and does not commute to work. Anyone that hits that "sweet spot" will most likely get cheap rates and will most likely save money with a new company.
Drivers who cannot meet the requirements will get higher premium rates and ends up with the prospect going elsewhere. The ads state "customers who switch" but not "all drivers who get quotes" save the amount stated. That is how companies can truthfully advertise the way they do. This illustrates why drivers should get Mooresville auto insurance quotes from several different companies. Because without a comparison, you cannot know the company that will provide the lowest car insurance in Mooresville.
These discounts can lower your insurance rates
Insurance is not cheap nor is it fun to buy but there's a good chance there are discounts that could drop your premiums quite a bit. Certain reductions will be credited when you quote, but some discounts are required to be inquired about before you get the savings.
- Professional Memberships - Joining qualifying clubs or civic groups could trigger savings on your bill.
- Payment Method - If you pay your bill all at once as opposed to paying monthly you can avoid the installment charge.
- Discounts for Federal Employees - Having worked for a branch of the government may reduce rates when you quote Mooresville auto insurance with some insurance companies.
- Sign Early and Save - Some larger companies provide a discount for buying a policy before your current expiration date. You can save around 10% with this discount.
- Discounts for Safe Drivers - Insureds without accidents may save up to 50% more as compared to drivers with claims.
- Military Rewards - Having a deployed family member could be rewarded with lower insurance rates.
- New Car Discount - Adding a new car to your policy can be considerably cheaper because new model year vehicles keep occupants safer.
As a footnote on discounts, most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. Most only cut individual premiums such as collision or personal injury protection. So even though you would think you could get a free insurance policy, insurance companies wouldn't stay in business.
Some companies that may offer quotes with these money-saving discounts include:
When getting a coverage quote, ask every prospective company how you can save money. Some credits might not be offered on policies in your area. If you would like to choose from a list of insurers with the best discounts in North Carolina, click here.
