There are many different methods to decrease your insurance premiums, which could end up saving you thousands of dollars per year.
Most insurance carriers make you include certain items in your policy, for example, jewelry, cell phones, and cameras. If you don’t have these items anymore, you should have them removed from your policy. This can help to reduce your premiums.
Most claims are subject to an excess which is stipulated in your policy. If you choose a higher excess, your monthly premiums will a smaller amount. In a typical policy the excess is usually between 750 and 1000. If you make your excess 2000, you will also protect your no-claim bonus, by not claiming for small amounts during the year, which will result in your premiums being lowered the following year.
The replacement value of goods rises constantly. The only exception is automobiles. Check with your agent to ensure your car is only insured at the market value. You cannot compare the market value of a car you bought five years ago with one today. Ask your agent whether you are paying only for the market value of your car, and that it should be reduced every year.
