                How to save on auto insurance in Seattle

                Drivers are always looking to reduce the monthly expense for car insurance So take a minute or two to look through the money-saving ideas in the list below to see if you can save a little dough on your next auto insurance policy.

                • Obey the law to get lower insurance cost. In order to get cheap auto insurance in Seattle, it’s necessary to follow traffic laws. Just one or two minor traffic violations could result in spiking policy cost as much as $408 per year. Serious violations like DUI/DWI and leaving the scene of an accident could raise rates by an additional $1,436 or more.
                • Improve your credit for cheaper car insurance. Having an excellent credit rating above 800 may save $247 per year over a lower credit rating of 670-739. Conversely, a weaker credit score could cost up to $286 more per year. Not all states use credit score as a rating factor, so check with your agent or company.
                • Choose a vehicle that is more affordable to insure. The vehicle you choose to drive is a big factor in the price you pay for car insurance in Seattle. As an example, a Kia Soul costs $1,682 less per year to insure in Seattle than a Acura NSX. Lower performance vehicles save money.
                • Remove unneeded coverage on older vehicles. Dropping full coverage from vehicles that are older will cut the cost of car insurance substantially.
                • Increasing deductibles makes car insurance cheaper. Raising your policy deductibles from $500 to $1,000 could save around $234 per year for a 40-year-old driver and $450 per year for a 20-year-old driver.
                • Your employment could save you money. Many auto insurance companies offer discounts for certain occupations like college professors, dentists, emergency medical technicians, police officers and law enforcement, doctors, and others. If your profession qualifies you for this discount, you could potentially save between $47 and $155 on your yearly car insurance bill, depending on the age of the rated driver.
                • Compare insurance rates before buying a car. Different vehicles, and even different trims of the same vehicle, can have significantly different car insurance premiums, and companies can sell policies with a wide range of costs. Get plenty of car insurance quotes before you buy a new car so you can avoid price shock when you receive your bill.
