A Few Things You Can Do To Save Money On Your Insurance:

  • Bundle your policies. By insuring your automobiles, home, lifeā€¦ with the same company, you will save money. Our customers that insure both their home and auto with Allied receive a whole host of extras, including a $10,000 accidental death benefit, a single deductible if both your home and autos are affected by the same event, emergency lockout coverage and air bag replacement for one that deploys accidentally.
  • Progressive auto insurance customers can save up to 30% by participating in their Snapshot program. You plug a small monitoring device into your vehicle’s diagnostic port. It’s not a tracking device, it monitors hard breaking, time of use and mileage. You can monitor your progress online. At the end of 6 months you return the device to Progressive and retain the discount.
  • Raising the comprehensive and collision deductibles on your auto insurance policy will save you money. The higher your deductibles, the lower your premium.
  • Raise your homeowners insurance deductible to at least $1,000. The higher your deductible , the lower the cost.
  • Adding a central alarm system will reduce your homeowners premium.
  • If you have students in your household with a ‘B’ grade average or better, make sure you are receiving a Good Student Discount. Also, students going to school over 100 miles away without a vehicle receive a discounted rate.
  • If you are 55 or older you can save 10% on your auto insurance by taking a state approved defensive driving course. This course can be taken at a local classroom or online at websites like aarp.org.
  • Do you have roadside assistance and/or rental reimbursement coverage? If you have no need of these coverages, request them to be removed to lower your premium. If you do want these coverages, it’s a good idea to check your policy or ask your agent if you have them.
