Feel like you’re a prisoner to high-priced auto insurance? Trust us when we tell you there are many people just like you. Insurance companies such as State Farm, Progressive and GEICO constantly blast consumers with TV and radio ads and it can be hard to sift through the bull and do the work needed to find the best deal.
Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but companies offer discounts that can drop the cost substantially. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically at quote time, but a few must be requested specifically in order for you to get them. If you’re not getting every credit you deserve, you’re just leaving money on the table.
Consumers should know that some of the credits will not apply to the overall cost of the policy. A few only apply to specific coverage prices like physical damage coverage or medical payments. So when the math indicates having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, you’re out of luck. But any discount will bring down your premiums.

An important part of buying insurance is that you know the rating factors that come into play when calculating auto insurance rates. Having a good understanding of what influences your rates allows you to make educated decisions that could result in much lower annual insurance costs.
Nebraska drivers can’t get away from ads that promise big savings by companies like State Farm and Allstate. They all seem to have a common claim of big savings if you change to them.
But how can every company say the same thing?
All companies have a preferred profile for the type of driver they prefer to insure. For instance, a driver they prefer could be between the ages of 30 and 50, has no driving citations, and chooses high deductibles. Any new insured who meets those qualifications receives the best rates and is almost guaranteed to save when they switch companies.
Consumers who do not match the requirements must pay a higher premium which leads to business not being written. The ad wording is “people who switch” not “everyone that quotes” save money. That is how insurance companies can state the savings.
This illustrates why you need to quote coverage with many companies. You cannot predict which company will fit your personal profile best.

As you prepare to switch companies, you should never buy poor coverage just to save money. In many cases, an accident victim reduced full coverage and discovered at claim time that the small savings ended up costing them much more. The aim is to buy enough coverage for the lowest price while not skimping on critical coverages.
The cheapest auto insurance can be bought from both online companies as well as from independent agents in Fremont, and you need to comparison shop both in order to have the best price selection to choose from. Some insurance providers don’t offer the ability to get a quote online and these smaller companies work with independent agents.
