Companies offering auto insurance don’t always advertise every discount in an easy-to-find place, so we researched both the well known as well as the least known discounts you could be receiving.

An important part of buying insurance is that you know some of the elements that come into play when calculating the rates you pay for auto insurance. When you know what positively or negatively influences your rates empowers consumers to make smart changes that will entitle you to big savings.

Deciding on an insurer shouldn’t rely on just the premium amount. Any agent should be forthright in answering these questions:
If you’re trying to find a good insurance agency, there are a couple of types of agencies that differ in how they can insure your vehicles. Insurance agencies in Glendive are classified as either captive or independent (non-captive).
Captive insurance agents have only one company to place business with and examples are Allstate, Farmers Insurance, State Farm and AAA. They are unable to give you multiple price quotes so they have no alternatives for high prices. Captives are very knowledgeable in insurance sales and that can be a competitive advantage. Consumers often purchase coverage from captives primarily because of loyalty to the company and the convenience of having a single billing for all their coverages.
Independent agencies are not employed by any specific company but rather can write business with multiple insurance companies and possibly get better coverage at lower prices. If your agent finds better pricing, they simply move the coverage in-house and you won’t have to switch agencies. When shopping rates, you should always include several independent insurance agents to have the most options to choose from. Many write coverage with smaller companies which can save you money.

Cost effective auto insurance is definitely available online and with local Glendive insurance agents, so you should compare both to have the best rate selection. Some insurance companies do not offer online price quotes and usually these small insurance companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
When buying insurance coverage, it’s not a good idea to buy poor coverage just to save money. There have been many situations where someone sacrificed full coverage to discover at claim time that saving that couple of dollars actually costed them tens of thousands. The ultimate goal is to purchase plenty of coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
People change insurance companies for a number of reasons such as delays in paying claims, denial of a claim, not issuing a premium refund or lack of trust in their agent. Whatever your reason, choosing a new company can be easier than you think.
