So you are about to say I Do and you discover your fiancé has a poor driving record! Well expect it to affect your insurance premium after you get married. Your automobile insurance policy covers you, your spouse, any other named insured listed under the policy, and any licensed driver in your household. If any of those people have bad driving records, it will affect your rates.
Of course, insurers consider marital status when calculating risk, so the very act of tying the knot may improve your future spouse’s risk profile. But if their driving record is really bad, you may want to consider additional strategies related to carrier selection, adjusting deductibles, driving school, and other approaches to avoid a hike in your premium. We can provide you with specific advice in this regard.
What strategy will work for you depends on your circumstances. We can discuss all of your policy options with you and make recommendations.
Insurance premiums depend on several factors, including your age, sex, place of residence, and driving record; the amount and type of coverage you select; and whether you drive your vehicle primarily for business or personal purposes. This explains why one driver might pay a different premium than another for the same make of vehicle.
But why might it cost more to insure one sport utility vehicle (SUV) than another? In addition to the factors listed above, insurance companies consider the likelihood that a particular brand of vehicle will be stolen, vandalized, or involved in an accident. They also track the cost of repairs. They gather their information from claim statistics. The Highway Loss Data Institute, for example, indexes the amount of money insurance companies have paid out (on average) for collision, injury, and theft claims for various types of motor vehicles. Therefore, the SUV that is most attractive to thieves across the country will probably be more expensive to insure than the one that is stolen least often.
Insurance companies also consider their own past claim payouts. For instance, if one company has paid numerous claims regarding a particular make of SUV, it may charge higher insurance rates for that type of SUV than another company would. This is why we shop for your insurance through 40 different companies – to find the right policy for you.
Many insurance companies issue automobile insurance, but finding the BEST policy for you can be challenging and time consuming. This is why people come to The Insurance Doctor – because we do the shopping for you through 40 different companies.
Remember that your profile will be a good fit for one of our companies. Our shopping helps you find the policy that’s right for you.
We compare premiums offered by 40 different companies and look for high customer service standards. The ability to pay a claim promptly will be important if you’re ever involved in an accident. And of course, we offer 24 hour claims service.
Finally, we understand insurance discounts and how you may be able to take advantage of them. You may benefit from multi-car and/or multi-driver discounts. You may receive a multiple policy discount if you purchase your auto insurance coverage through the same insurer that covers your motorcycle or boat insurance. An insurer may also offer you a discount if you have a safe driving record or have completed a driver’s education course.
Give us the chance to compare 40 companies and rates to ensure that you make the decision that’s right for you.
In most states, the department of motor vehicles has a “point” system, which is used to track and measure your driving record. Generally, each type of infraction (moving violations, parking tickets, at-fault accidents, driving under the influence, etc.) is assigned a certain point value. When you are found guilty of one of these infractions, the appropriate number of points is added to your driving record. The more points you have, the worse your record.
Typically, an auto insurance company has the right to review the driving record of anyone who applies for an auto insurance policy from that company.
There are two purposes for this initial review:
To determine whether you meet the insurer’s standards of insurability
To evaluate your risk potential (i.e., how much your insurance will cost).
Each insurance company has its own method of evaluating applicants. So the points on your driving record may have a direct impact on the rates you pay for auto insurance. This is one of the reasons why we shop among 40 different insurance companies and programs to find the best policy for you.
There are certain times when you can be relatively sure your insurance company will be checking your record. These include:
When you initially apply for coverage
When your policy comes up for renewal
If a review of your driving record uncovers negative information, your insurance rates may increase. Insurers typically have their own “point” system to calculate the increase (if any). Then we go to work for you to find you the lowest rate even with this negative information.
Lets talk about you for a minute – and what you deserve from people like us.
You want to save money… without spending your life learning the insurance business and shopping for the right policy. Research is our job. Leave that to us.
If you are a safe driver, you want to be sure you are getting the savings you deserve. You probably have no idea the discounts you may qualify for. We’ll show you.
If you have a bad driving record, you want to be treated fairly and respectfully. And you want the best policy for your current situation. We are proud to help you.
You want to pay on your terms. Maybe in small monthly payments by direct bill or EFT. Maybe you would rather pay by credit card – or in cash? We give you the choice.
You don’t want to be haunted by a traffic violation from years ago. Most insurance companies review the last five years of your driving before they will insure you. We only review the last three years of your driving record.
You don’t want to deal with the insurance company. We do it for you.
You want immediate service when you need it the most. We offer 24 hour claim service.
You want an expert as your own personal representative. Someone well-trained and friendly – who you trust to follow up with you quickly. That’s us. We’re open during lunch and in the evening to suit YOUR schedule. We’ll work with you by phone or email. Whatever suits you.
You don’t want to deal with an automated answering service or 1-800 numbers. We don’t want to jeopardize personal service just when you need it the most. You will get your own agent every time you call.
Let us make your life a little easier – and save you money at the same time.
