Whether you are an associate professor at Purdue, an executive at Alcoa, or a truck driver who totes loads along State Roads 25, 26, and 38, you seek a deeper understanding of the dynamic factors that influence your Lafayette insurance rates. You understand that both life and business present unmitigatable risks, and that the tough economic times that have fallen upon Indiana and the rest of the country (as of 2010) make cost-cutting a necessity. On the other hand, you don't want to skimp on insurance and risk losing your nest egg in a calamity. The antidote to this dilemma is knowledge. Be proactive, and collect and compare an array of Lafayette insurance quotes to keep your coverage costs as low as they can be -- and best suited to your needs, lifestyle, and risk sensitivities.
Home, Health, and More
Homeowners insurance -- Indianans in 2007 paid just $647 for their HO-3 policy packages -- nearly $200 less than what the average US homeowner paid ($822). But whether you live in a five bedroom near Caterpillar or a condo at the perimeter of the Purdue University campus, your rates may significantly depart from that average. If you have a problem with your credit score, a history of filing claims, or on-premises hazards (such as a biting dog or toys that children could hurt themselves on), insurers could rate you as "riskier" than average and charge you more. To get your rates into a reasonable range, explore discount opportunities. Retired senior citizens, for instance, can often get discounts, for instance, since on average retirees tend to be better custodians for their houses. To get even lower Lafayette insurance quotes, consider paying off more of your home -- insurers will likely reward you because people who own more of their own properties tend to, on average, take better care of them.
Auto insurance -- In 2007, according to the NAIC, Indiana drivers paid $618 for their premiums -- again, a really good rate considering that the average US driver paid $795. But as we just discussed, your situation may be very different. For instance, if you have a history of getting traffic citations or getting into accidents, or if you are a very young driver or a very old driver, your insurer may penalize you with higher rates.
So what can you do to get those down? To qualify for reduced Lafayette insurance quotes, dive deep and find discounts. Depending on the company -- and your circumstance -- you could qualify for a dozen or more discounts for things like being a safe driver, being a low claims driver, being a good student, being a senior citizen, and owning a car with an antitheft system.
