Who Can Sell Auto Insurance?
While the answer to this question can vary from state to state or from province to province, the basic element of it is consistent across Canada and the United States. Auto insurance is generally sold by either agents or brokers. In general, insurance brokers will offer the products from companies that they have arrangements with. By contrast, insurance agents work for one specific company and will be only able to sell you products from that company.
Before choosing to do business with either an agent or broker it is very important that you examine what their insurance product involves, how much it will cost, and the reputation and quality of the service. After completing these steps you should have a better idea of what type of policy to purchase.
What Factors Will Affect My Insurance Premium?
There are a number of related and individual factors that will affect the cost of your auto insurance premium. They include, but are not limited to:
- The type of car you drive: The make, model, age and size of your car will determine how high your insurance premium will be. In addition to the car’s value, the total repair costs will also be taken into consideration.
- Your car’s primary function: The primary purpose of your car or other type of vehicle will also be a contributory factor in determining the ultimate cost of your insurance premium. This means that variations will exist depending if your car is driven primarily for pleasure, going to and from work ,or used strictly for work.
- Where you live and where you predominantly use your car: The neighborhood where you live or whether you are a city or country driver can also affect how high or low your premium will be. Similarly, determining where you mostly use your car will affect the cost of your premium.
