How to Get Cheaper Motor Insurance Rates

Umbrella and rain as insurance

As an insurance collector, I always receive questions about how to reduce automobile insurance charges, and either I am asked by clients or by the insurance companies themselves. People are always asking me what I am looking for when I go through the life insurance application. I always remind them that they need to speak to an insurance specialist who can access the motor insurance market place on their behalf and get a better rate because these specialists deal in the life insurance market place. I am an insurance professional and not a life insurance agent and, therefore I take the reintroductions seriously.

I have heard from many people over the years who have said to me, “I am paying too much for automobile insurance”, or “I have too much term insurance coverage”. I used to think, why should I care? There is only so much I can save you an old geezer! Now I realize I must not waste my precious time with you -I must care. Because insurance is one of those transactions where you could save money one time but can save money over and over again without a second thought.

This is a pretty common occurrence. Folks do not like change, yet human nature is constant and that constant nature always will introduce new ways of doing things. Thus the insurance industry and the whole financial market are constantly changing to match the new way of doing things – faster, leaner, and more efficient.

A fresh look to insurance

Arguably the most important characteristic the modern insurance agents and the financial industry have adapted to meet the new form of insurance is the Chexsystems Record. This record either created or is compiled from information supplied to the insurance companies all over the country by customers. And what fun is this? The insurance companies take this information very seriously and endeavor each business day to update thisChexsystems Record, for in essence, how the insurance industry if looked at by others. If this information is negative it will hurt the person’s life insurance application and or its successful conclusion. For example, say there is some bad information on these personal records due to identity theft, say the suspect had financing opportunity, etc. This will shortchange the person’s chances to get a good deal and just short of giving him the best deal. And consequently, his efforts to get a new job, qualify for better financing, or just get an apartment will be hindered as well. So check your credit report at least every two months or more frequently, no matter how much time you have here I can almost guarantee you will not notice these negative errors. This is also relevant to checking the credit reports for errors.

The affect on a job

Well, in that case, it is very important to ensure your employers and prospective employers have been made aware of this individual past criminal record. If a potential employer asks to see this person’s credit report will he or she be turned down for the position? I fully expect NOT!

Remember, it’s your life we’re talking about and no one has the right or power to tell you those are not worth doing business with. If you find errors on your credit report you’re entitled to notify the agencies by sending a routine letter stating the errors, the items that are not yours, or that the information is wrong and any information you have that support or verify the information.

Since this information is private, the agencies will not notify you as they will notify if it is in error. This is the part of the problem we said, it’s not necessarily your fault on some of the things that are on your report.

Insurance rates comparison

Well, I can tell from experience that a car insurance policy is sometimes denied because of the information listed on a person’s credit report. Why? Often due to errors, you can’t control, or a bad credit score for whatever reason. Also, if the auto insurance company finds a history of good credit, it would assume you have a responsible individual and will cater to him or her accordingly. It’s up to that individual to approach his or her insurance agency or insurance company to get an explanation of the bad rating they have. I have done this one time and was told I had a good profile, hence my insurance rate had to be decreased. In comparison, a person’s credit profile in my insurance company was flawed for 5 years.
