5 Things Every Auto Insurance Policy Holder Needs to Do Now

Once you get your auto insurance policy issued, you are ready to start driving. But there are some additional steps you should take to protect yourself, keep your rates low, and prepare for the worst.

Put a disposable camera in your glove compartment: A picture of an accident scene can tell your insurance company a lot about the damage your car suffered and who was likely at fault. If your cell phone doesn’t have a camera, then put a disposable camera in your glove compartment in order to ensure that you can capture photo evidence if you are ever in an accident.

Save up for your deductible: If you have a deductible, then you have a responsibility to pay a certain portion of the damage that your next accident causes. Start saving up for your deductible now so that you have the money available if an accident actually occurs.

Upgrade your anti-theft system: Not only will an anti-theft system help prevent your vehicle from being stolen, it will also give you discounts come renewal time. If you already have an anti-theft system, consider upgrading it or adding additional measures.

Download apps: The cell phone is a major distracter and is responsible for many car accidents. Download an app that sends an auto text to anyone texting you while driving, that you are busy and will get back to them when it is safe for you to text. Some insurance companies offer discounts for the use of these apps and even if yours doesn’t – you will still reduce your risk of accident.

Take a defensive driving course: A defensive driving course will teach you how to better react to other drivers and reduce your risk of accident. It will also bring auto insurance discounts.
