For most of us, each year comes and goes without much thought of our auto insurance policies. You may think that, once you find an auto insurance policy that fits your current needs, you could simply set it and forget it hoping you'll never have to use it.
However, what you may not be aware of is that there are many reasons why you should do an annual review of your car insurance. Just like doing a yearly checkup with your doctor is important, it's also important to do the same with your auto insurance policy.
A lot happens in a year, and it's possible that the coverage you had then won't be sufficient for you now. Take for instance, you used to have an older vehicle and carried basic liability coverage for your auto insurance. And then later in the year, you traded that vehicle in for a brand new vehicle. Now you would have to carry full coverage insurance instead of the basic liability insurance that was what's carried on the older vehicle.
Here are a few other examples of changes that would require you to contact your insurance agent. Have I gotten married or divorced? Is anyone in my house a new driver? Is anyone living with me who hasn't before? Will they be driving any of my vehicles? Has a teenager recently gotten their driver's license? Have purchased a new vehicle recently?
As you can see, there are many reasons why you should make a note to contact your insurance agent annually. It's especially important because there are many discounts that may not have applied to you before but they do now. For example, if you're newly married, many auto insurance companies give very generous discounts for married couples who add their spouse to the policy.
Here are a few more tips to maximize all the discounts you deserve. Set your policy on auto-pay. Make sure you have an equal amount of cars and drivers. Sign up for paperless billing.
To summarize, taking the time to schedule a yearly checkup on your auto insurance is very important. There are beneficial reasons to do this and discounts that you may now qualify for that you didn't in the past.
