Recent Safeco Car Insurance Questions and Answers

What can I do about fixing incorrect information on my driving record?

It really depends on where the accidents are listed. Insurance companies look at 2 different reports to verify your driving history.

If my teenager rear ended another car but we aren't filing a claim, will my insurance rate go up?

The tricky part about this situation is the police report. Since your current insurance company is unlikely to re-run your driving records after you become a customer, avoiding a claim should keep the rate with your current company from increasing.

Should I file a claim if my repair cost is $1,500?

In New Mexico, our State of Insurance report shows that an at fault accident increases rates by an average of $596 additionally per year. Since accidents impact your rate for at least 3 years, you would be paying an extra $1,788 in premium over that time frame.

Can I put my insurance on hold due to temporary disability?

Technically, you can cancel your car insurance at any time. However, canceling your policy will result in the loss of a Prior Insurance discount when you go to purchase another policy in the future.
