3 Steps to Lower Car Insurance Premiums, Dothan, Alabama

A quality car insurance policy will protect you, your vehicle, and all of your assets while on the road, but that doesn't mean you should pay more than you have to. While many of the factors affecting your premium are outside your control, like crime rates and traffic patterns where you live, there are several steps you can take to lower your monthly payments.

3 Steps to Lower Car Insurance Premiums

1. Get Points Off Your License

Your previous driving history is one of the most important factors that goes into calculating your auto insurance payments. Having more points on your license due to traffic violations almost always results in higher insurance costs, so take advantage of any opportunity to have them removed. Many states will take points off of your license if you attend traffic school or a safe driving course, which could substantially lower your premiums.

2. Choose Your Vehicle Carefully

Vehicles that are generally involved in more accidents or attract thieves have higher premiums than others. Before buying a new automobile, taking the time to investigate the insurance costs can save a lot of money in the long run.

3. Protect Your Car

Many insurance companies offer discounts to drivers who take measures to protect their vehicles from theft, storm damage, and other losses. If possible, install an alarm or tracking system in your car, and keep it in a garage to protect it from the elements.
