If your an owner of a high performance car, auto insurance rates can get extremely high. This goes especially for people who see an open road and push the car’s performance up a notch. One way to make sure your on the right path to an affordable auto insurance is by comparing rates.
One car I owned in my early 20s was a turbo charged eagle talon. Being a pretty fast car, the performace could never compare to that of a Corvette. My insurance rates, however, felt like it should have. My rates were through the roof. Fully covered with one accident and two tickets still dwindling on my record from a couple years ago, I was shelling out roughly $400 a month. This was my major financial OUCH. I eventually got myself into the position where I could pay off the rest of my car loan and change my coverage from “full coverage” to “liability only”. This took my payment down from $400 a month to $67 a month. I cannot imagine the coverage cost if It was a Corvette I was cruising. The insurance costs will increases with the increase of risk.
Take that Chevrolet Corvette I mentioned. A well known example of American Muscle. Auto enthusiasts nationwide have much respect for this top sports car for it’s beautiful design and it’s high perfomance. When insurance agents are placed in the position to cover a policy on this car they see something totally different, a dangerous car that reaches top speeds faster than many people can handle. The risk of crashing isn’t all there is for the provider to be concerned with. The Corvette also attracts it’s share of car theft, vandalism (”haters”) and the high cost of repair in the event of an accident. Avoiding tickets will be another battle a driver must concour. With all the performance within the drivers reach, for some it will take a lot of patience and self control to be behind the wheel of a high perfomance Corvette. When looking for insurance make sure to take advantage of every discount you possible can. Merging homeowner’s and auto insurance together is one good step to take. Another is to be a responsible driver and avoid traffic violations, ask the agent you choose if there are any discounts availabe within your reach and make sure to shop around for quotes. Quote comparisons are a great way to save.
