What is a good auto insurance rates?
Mr. Mitchell was paying $2, 537 a year on insurance and, like many people, put off calling his insurer to review his premium until AARP sent him something in the mail with an offer for a free quote from The Hartford, who offered him the same policy for just half what he was paying at Liberty Mutual—about $1, 267. When Mitchell called Liberty Mutual, he was told he was eligible for premium reductions thanks to "underwriting changes" and now his rate would be just $1, 207. How interesting. Had he not called, the manager admitted the bill would not have changed.
It really pays to review your policy and shop around every year, because, as the article notes:
the onus is always on you, the consumer, to do the heavy lifting, whether it's a big-ticket item like auto insurance or smaller bills from your cellphone or cable provider. It's a simple lesson, yes, but one that is worth remembering every so often.
