Buying a new car is exciting, but it can also be costly. Because a new car is already expensive, we’re here to help you get affordable car insurance! Here are some tips to help you save money on auto insurance when buying a car.
Before you buy your dream car, research how much it will cost to insure it. Insurance rates vary depending on the make, model and year of the vehicle. Factors such as buying a car with safety features, low repair costs and low theft rates will save you money on insurance.
Choose an affordable vehicle
Choose a car that is cheaper to insure. Expensive or high-end cars will have higher insurance premiums than more affordable options. Buying a compact car, sedan or family-friendly SUV will help you save money on insurance.
Bundle your Policies
Bundle your auto and home insurance. If you have a homeowner or tenant policy and you purchase your car insurance from the same provider, you might be eligible for a discount. Ask your Sharp broker about bundling your insurance policies to receive a discount!
Good driving record. Having a clean driving record with no accidents, tickets or DUIs will help reduce insurance rates. Ask your Sharp broker about first-time accident forgiveness or minor conviction waivers. These ensure that if you get a minor ticket, it won’t result in higher insurance premiums. Many insurance providers also offer discounts to drivers who have taken defensive driving courses.
Increase your Deductible
Increase your deductible. Choosing a higher deductible can lower insurance premiums. Keep in mind though that you will have to pay this amount out of pocket in the event of an accident or loss.
Group insurance discounts. Sharp insurance offers discounted rates to some organizations and associations through its Group Home and Auto Insurance Program. Find out if your workplace or a group you are a part of has group insurance. If you’re a decision maker at an organization and would like to set up a group insurance partnership with Sharp to get your employees or members discounts, please give us a call at 877.218.2008 or click here for more details!
