  • Set your price range (this will be dependent on the type of vehicle you have)
  • Conduct some research on insurance providers
  • Develop a list options
  • Get the insurance quotes

  • Understand the factors that impact your rates: There are many different things that will impact how much you pay for car insurance. They include, your deductible, the type of car you have, driver’s education, previous claims, and your experience as an insured driver.
