Vancouver Insurance Quotes for Auto
Washington is a surprisingly expensive state for auto insurance. As of 2007, the average premium was $841 compared with the average U.S. expenditure of $795. The costs break down even further, as follows: $551 for liability, $257 for collision, and $120 for comprehensive. Somewhat surprisingly, 16% of Washington drivers are uninsured, according to 2007 stats compiled by the Insurance Research Council. Vancouver residents must purchase both bodily injury and property damage liability coverage. Bodily injury coverage includes $50,000 (per accident) and $25,000 (per person). You need $10,000 minimum for property damage. Your driving habits, age, gender, and other X Factors can dramatically influence your rates, as well. For instance, if you've gotten into accidents on Interstate 5 or gotten ticketed on Evergreen Boulevard, this will count against you. On the other hand, if you don't drive much (basically to and from your job at River West Complex), you could qualify for a low mileage discount.
Get Out of the Rain with Vancouver Homeowners Insurance
Vancouver, like its neighboring city of Portland, Oregon, sees a ton of wet weather. Copious rain can damage houses and foundations and cause insurers to hike their rates accordingly. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, in 2007, the average Washington homeowners paid $506 --substantially less than the average U.S. premium of $822. This puts Washington as the fifth least expensive state for homeowners' policies. You can get your rates down potentially even lower by raising your deductible, installing smoke alarms and a security system, and paying off more of your mortgage.
