I can’t think of a single person who looks forward to paying premiums for auto insurance, especially when they know their premiums are too high. Due to the large number of insurance companies to choose from, it’s difficult to choose a lower cost insurer.
It’s important to compare rates occasionally because auto insurance prices are adjusted regularly by insurance companies. Just because you found the lowest price six months ago other companies may now be cheaper. Forget anything you know (or think you know) about auto insurance because you’re going to get a crash course in one of the quickest ways to remove unneeded coverages and save money.

- Will I be non-renewed for getting a DUI or other conviction?
