I recently moved all the way from one city to the next city over, so I had to go through the motions of changing my address information for everyone. Debit cards, phone, utilities, doctors, etc.
Then I went to change my address with my auto insurance company and discovered it still had my driver’s license info from LOUISIANA. I haven’t had my driver’s license there in years! I changed it and – guess what! My premiums decreased.
Insurance rates vary from town to town, state to state – and it’s very important to keep your insurer up to date with where you live and where you are licensed. But some states are more expensive than others, so you may want to shop around to find a cheaper insurance plan. There are some web sites that compare rates now, so if you, say, move from Los Angeles to Austin, it might help you to look on a web site to find cheap auto insurance in Texas.
These things are easy to overlook when moving from place to place and even when getting a new driver’s license. I can’t believe I went a few years without realizing this. So, keep stock of your premiums and take advantage of competing companies! You never know when you can get a reduced rate!
