Back to school with lower Car Insurance – Philadelphia

by Anita on August 27, 2015

It’s that time. Kids are going back to school. Most people think about books, pencils, back packs, school clothes, new sneakers and haircuts. But you may want to add insurance to the list. If you still have high school students in the house who drive or will soon be getting their license, remind them that good grades equal lower car insurance rates. Many insurance companies offer the good student discount which is for earning a B or better. You must provide your insurance agent with a copy of the last report card as verification. Cheaper car insurance is just another incentive to do well in school.

If you are sending your kid off to college for the first time most likely they will not have a vehicle on campus and will be living in a dorm. Is your son/daughter living away at school 100 miles or more? If the answer is yes, then you may qualify for a discount on your auto insurance. If you have a junior or senior in college they may have a car at school with them and living off campus.  If they have a vehicle at school with them, remember to provide your agent with the address where they are in school. The agent can then split rate the vehicle so that all cars are rated at their respective addresses. This is important for your auto insurance policy. When you are renting a house or apartment your contents are not covered under the landlord’s insurance policy, therefore you may want to think about renter’s insurance. Many students bring TV’s, laptops, game systems and personal belongings with them. Renters insurance may insure these items in a covered loss.  Keep your college student in the loop when it comes to insurance. This way when they are ready to purchase their own auto and renters insurance policy they will know what to do.  These are beneficial life lessons for your kids.

Five reasons why you should take advantage of free quotes on auto insurance.

by Anita on May 20, 2015

  1. It takes as little as five minutes to answer a few questions to get the quoting process started. If you choose an independent agent they take the information once and get rates from many companies.  This inevitably saves you time and will save you money. If you choose a Trusted Choice Agency with a good rating from the Better Business Bureau you will receive expert advice.
  2. There are times when auto insurance policies go up, even with no claims. If it goes too high for your budget, an independent agent can price your auto insurance with the other companies they represent.  Independent agents offer you choices.  Customers want the freedom to purchase insurance with their budget in mind and not have to forego the coverages that they need.
  3. You may end up paying less and receive better coverage than you had before.
  4. Insurance companies are not one size fits all and have their own set of discount offerings. An insurance company that had great rates while you were single and renting an apartment may not be good for you now that you are married and own a home.  You could also be missing out on significant savings.
  5. The free gifts! Agents who care about their customers always have nice giveaways to thank you for your business.

So before you renew your auto insurance think about getting a competitive quote.  Have your old auto policy out to get an apples to apples quote.  If you own or rent a home you can also get a homeowners insurance/renters insurance quote.  Bundling your policies with the same company will save you money too! Does your agent have a money saving checklist?  We do. For quotes on car insurance or homeowners insurance call Freedom Insurance Group Inc. today at 215-673-0300 or visit our website www.freedom4insurance.com.  We represent 15 A+ insurance companies such as Progressive, Safeco, Grange, Travelers, The Hartford, Philadelphia Contributionship, and many more.  The Independent Agency has been in business for 12 years and is a Trusted Choice Agency.

Teaching Teens about Insurance

by Anita on March 3, 2015

From the moment our kids are little we teach them to say please and thank you, how to tie their shoes, and eventually how to drive. But there are some life skills that are overlooked by parents. Insurance may be one of them. When our teens get their permit we add them to our policy and most likely pay the additional premium. Although this helps them in the short term, it does not help in the long term. So many times we see twenty somethings come in to our office to get their first car insurance policy and they have no idea where to begin. They call their parents while at an agent’s desk to get the details of their previous policy. Our number one job as a parent is to teach our kids to become a responsible independent adult.

When you add your teen to your policy sit down with them and go over your current auto policy. Explain the coverages, the discounts you receive and why auto insurance is so important. They should know the basics, which are collision coverage, comprehensive coverage, liability and deductibles. You can do your best to explain to them the difference between Full Tort and limited tort. When it comes to underinsured motorist coverage and uninsured motorist coverage explain to them what these coverages protect against. Then there is towing, rental and roadside assistance. Better yet, bring your teen into your independent agents office when they are first added to the policy. This would also be a perfect time to review your insurance coverages/deductibles and will certainly provide a wonderful teaching moment for your teen.  Not to mention show them the cost of auto insurance.

Don’t forget to ask your son/daughter to sign a no texting and driving contract, as well as discuss safe driving practices. It is so important to have a conversation with young drivers about registration, following state laws while driving and the consequences for not abiding by the rules and laws. As parents we should reinforce our expectations while taking the car out. All of this goes hand in hand with auto insurance. To keep your rates low, a good driving record is needed. If they are a good student, they may qualify for a discount.  Be sure to ask your agent if there is a discount for Good Student on their car insurance policy.

When you have these conversations with your teen you teach them valuable life lessons that they can carry on into adulthood.
