How to over pay for auto insurance
Would you shop at grocery stores that charged an extra 10% – 50% percent for food? What about at the gas station; how about paying a higher interest rate on your mortgage. Hey, why not, you’re probably a multi-millionaire and it’s just money right.
Yeah, the easiest way is to do nothing and continually think it is what is and I’ve just got to pay it. Stop burying your head in the sand and put a few hundred or thousands of dollars a year back in your pocket.
I can’t tell you how many times a week I meet someone outside of the office and they tell me a story about their agent they’ve had for years, they’re like a close friend; he sends me a calendar every year. That’s the most expensive calendar you’ll ever buy, year after year.
A number of years ago my own brother, who owns a construction business out of state, called me about his commercial truck insurance. It’s a small contracting business, and he said “I’ve been paying about $20,000 a year for truck insurance, do you think that’s high?” Not being licensed in that state at the time I said I don’t know; have you had your policy reviewed by anyone lately? No… Well, long story short he wound up getting another policy with the same coverage’s for $10,000, a 50% savings. He was very happy but also very upset at himself for feeling like the agent he’s been with for years was costing him $10,000 year after year and never offering to find a better rate.
So, who’s at fault with this scenario: the brother who never checked for better rates or the agent who did nothing and keep making money?
Wake up people, 5 minutes of review time with an “insurance broker” will yield money in your pocket year after year, see grocery store example above.
