When you make changes in your life, insurance rates can change too. When it comes to auto insurance, there are many factors that affect policies. Here are a few reasons why your car insurance policy may fluctuate.

  • Type of Car – Some cars may be equipped with better safety features, preventing more severe injury and accidents. If you’re looking at getting a new car, call us and we can let you know how this will affect your car insurance rate.
  • Home Address – Your address could have a different number of accidents, theft or vandalism in its history which can then impact your car insurance policy.
  • Drivers on the policy – Adding another person to your policy will affect your rate, especially if they are a new driver.
  • Car’s Age – As cars get older, they may cost less to insure.
  • Claims – After an accident or other insurance claim, your rate may increase, even if it isn’t your fault.
