					Auto Insurance Finding The Best Rates

When it comes to auto insurance, most people just want to find coverage for the lowest
price possible. It's hard to argue with that mentality, although more should go into your
research than just finding the lowest quote. For one, not every package is the same.
You may pay a lower premium, only to be hit with a much higher deductible in the event
of an accident. You may pay a lower premium, only to realize that you don't have near
as much coverage. It's important to consider all of those things when looking for a
company. That said, price is the bottom line. Here are some tips on finding the best
rates.

Shop Hard

 To get the best rates, you have to know what the best rates are. You can't do that by
only looking up a single company. Shop around and see what's out there. The internet
makes this easier than ever. You can shop for rates without ever calling a single
company. Even if you can't determine precisely what you'll be paying, you can get a
general overview that will tell you who is on the cheap side and who is on the expensive
side. This will help you narrow down your choices for when you're ready to start talking
to representatives.

Coverage

 Part of getting the best rates is knowing exactly what you're paying for. That means
comparing apples to apples. Most insurance companies will have a default package
that they offer to most customers. But if you use that package to compare quotes, you
could be missing out on the meat of the matter. Every company's default package is not
going to be the same. You may be paying more at Company A, but also getting a lot
more for your money. You also need to consider potential incidents when you decide on
coverage. You don't want to opt for the minimum legal package available and wind up
severely in debt after an accident.

Deductible

 If you are the type of person who always has some money socked away in case of an
emergency, it might be in your best interests to look for an package with a higher
deductible. This will allow you to find a lower premium. Of course, this is not
recommended if you typically have less than your deductible in your bank account. Try
to find a happy medium where you don't end up shelling out a fortune for your premium
but won't be put in a difficult situation if you're forced to pay your insurance deductible.
