Tips-13

The insurance market is competitive, which means it's a good idea to check quotes. Even if you haven't had any claims, your rates could be affected by events happening elsewhere. A company that heavily insured an area hit by a natural disaster may be raising rates while other insurers are holding steady. While you can do some initial comparison shopping for insurance quotes online, be prepared to spend some time on the phone talking to agents as well. Don't forget to ask if there is a discount for bundling your home, car and life insurance.
