Why does my monthly billing amount vary for auto insurance?

Anytime a change is made to a policy, the premium will increase or decrease accordingly. If no changes are made during a policy period, the price will stay the same. The only other reason for a change is when your policy renews and there is a change in your rate.

Why is my auto insurance higher/lower than my neighbors?

Insurance rates are based on many factors such as:

  • Driving Record
  • Auto Coverage
  • Make and Model of Vehicle
  • Garaging of your Vehicle
  • Address of your Vehicle
