They'll review your current policy and shop around for an apples-to-apples comparison to show you what other carries may be better suited to your needs.


1) Start by reevaluating your homeowner’s insurance:

  • Bundle your home with your auto insurance; this can result in significant, immediate savings.
  • Adjust your billing plan
  • Flood zone residents should consider moving to private offerings for significant savings.

2) Look for ways to shave money off your auto insurance premiums, such as:

  • Ask about discounts for next few months due to reduction in driving or ask about changing your vehicle status from commuter use to pleasure use.
  • Consider taking the higher deductible plan so your monthly bill is less. if you drive much less, the likelihood of an accident is reduced, and it may be in your best interest to reduce your bill this way.

3) Check to see if your insurance provider is implementing any special practices in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Here are some small changes some of their auto carriers have been making:

  • Expanding coverage for personal auto customers temporarily delivering food or medicine and allowing commercial customers additional coverage options for delivery.
  • Extending payment leniency, waiving late fees and pausing collections.
  • Deferring deductibles to help customers who cannot pay out of pocket to get their car repaired.
