What are the rating factors used to determine my Grand Rapids Car Insurance Rates?
Location-Where you live plays a huge role in what your car insurance rates are. In the Grand Rapids area it doesn’t fluctuate quite as much, but in some parts of the state just moving over one zip code can double your rates.
Credit-This one takes some time, but Michigan is one of the states that uses credit, or credit based insurance scoring as a factor to determine your rates. The difference between good credit and bad credit can double your rates. If you have exceptional credit, there are a lot more well priced options available. If you have bad credit, it is important to make sure you find an agency that has multiple companies to quote and also an agency that makes sure that every discount is being applied. Not all insurance companies rely on credit as much as others. Some companies won’t penalize you and will rely on how long you’ve been insured as well as driving record and claims history.
Age-Teenage drivers are going to get hit the worse with rates as they have zero driving experience. You can get those rates down quite a bit by making sure you get a drivers education discount and if it applies a good student discount. Elderly also start to get charged more. Not all carriers are competitive with senior citizens. It’s important to shop around if your older and feel like your being over charged.
Vehicles-Some vehicles cost more than others to insure. We always recommend to our customers to call us and compare quotes before purchasing a new vehicle.
There are many other factors that influence your rates, but these are some of the common ones that are easily understood.
