Costlier Insurance Premiums for “High-risk” Drivers and Car Owners

If you are at least 25 years old, married and have children, not driving a high-powered sports car or any type of car that is prone to accidents, has many years of driving experience without having been cited for any type of traffic violation, especially DUI and reckless driving, has never been required by the court to file an SR-22, has never been involved in an accident, and have lower annual mileage, then there is a very high possibility that your insurance premiums will be much lower than any other driver or car owner because car insurance providers will not tag you as a “high-risk” driver.

With car insurance providers considering so many factors that will make car insurance policies still more expensive than these already are (neither will they tell you about the possible reductions in your premiums unless you ask), drivers and car owners should think of better ways in playing the field to make sure that they get the best insurance deals without paying too much. This is because, whether they like it not, they will have to carry car liability insurance since this is mandatory in all states in the U.S. (except in the state of New Hampshire, where drivers with serious or repeated serious traffic violations are the only ones mandated to have car insurance coverage).

One best way to find a car insurance deal that will best meet your needs and which will fall within your budget is going online and requesting insurance quotes from independent car insurance companies. According to the website of Hankey Law Office, P.C., many of these independent firms provide clients with as many car insurance quotes as possible to help clients find the best deal at the least cost (some of these firms also offer motorcycle insurance quotes, by the way). A number of these firms also offer other insurance-related services, like SR-22 quotes and filing; you can even make the insurance policy purchase through these firms and save yourself the trouble of attending to all the paper works and related worries, especially if you are a “high-risk” driver.

Like the 2.8 million drivers and car owners who purchased auto insurance coverage online in 2009 (an 80% increase since 2006), you too should now know how fast, easy and convenient it is to compare and shop for auto insurance coverage online. Some tips only which may help you get a really worthwhile deal: look at what types of services are provided by the insurer, such as emergency road service for a nominal charge and/or car insurance deductible rewards.
