Car Insurance Costs

Why are my parents' driving records affecting my premium?

You should be able to get your own plan. Because you are in New Jersey, all people in the same household must be on the policy unless you can show proof the other people you live with are insured elsewhere.

My daughter totaled her car while she was covered under my insurance. How does this affect my rate?

If your daughter was the listed driver and the accident was logged correctly, most companies won't charge that against you. If you are looking to switch insurers and her accident comes up on your claims history, I would obtain proof or confirmation from that company that the claim wasn't yours so it can be cleared.

As a co-borrower on a car loan, what happens if the insurance payments aren't made?

The policy would cancel if she doesn't pay the premiums. Legally speaking, this wouldn't have an effect on you if you're a non-driver. However, if the vehicle is found to be without insurance, the finance company could repo the vehicle or force place insurance on it

My insurance company sent me a non-renewal notice. Will this affect my premiums going forward?

If they are non-renewing for an unsigned app, you should be able to contact them and get that resolved. If you don't want to stay with them, I would still finish the term and move on to a different insurer.

How can an insurance company add an accident to your record that never happened?

I would contact the insurance company that listed the claim and start a dispute. They really shouldn't be able to put you down for this claim.

How does the price of a non-owners policy compare to liability insurance?

A non-owners policy gives provides liability coverage so that they can drive a non-owned vehicle. As such, it will be much cheaper because there is no specific vehicle to insure.

If I've been paying for an SR-22 that I didn't actually need, will the car insurance company pay me back?

Sorry to hear about your situation. Chances are, you can get reimbursed if the SR-22 is deemed to have been unnecessary.

Will using Amazon in-car delivery raise my insurance rate?

From what I understand, using Amazon's in-car delivery should not affect your insurance rates. Because the couriers don't drive your vehicle(s) and are simply dropping items off in a parked car, I don't see any concerning factors an insurance company would worry about — unless a courier vandalizes or steals your car, which seems unlikely. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Motorcycle Insurance

Will a comprehensive claim on my motorcycle affect my car insurance rates?

Your comprehensive claim will show up on your reports for auto insurance even if it was done for a motorcycle. The good news is if this is your first comp claim, it's considered not-at-fault, and most companies will not adjust your rates.

I receive SSI and SNAP benefits as well as income from work and just got my driver's permit. Does my state offer low-income insurance?

Unfortunately, Oregon is not one of the few states that offer special insurance programs for low-income individuals and families. The average annual premium in Oregon was $1,463 — a tad lower than the national average of $1,548. Your best bet for finding affordable insurance is to shop around as much as possible.
