Are you a victim of high-priced car insurance? Believe me, many Grafton consumers feel financially strained by their car insurance policy. With so many choices of insurance companies, it is very difficult to find the lowest cost provider.
Consumers need to do rate comparisons at least once a year since rates are rarely the same from one policy term to another. Despite the fact that you may have had the best rates a few years ago you will most likely find a better rate today. Starting now, block out anything you think you know about car insurance because you’re going to learn the only way to find lower rates on car insurance.
Most companies give coverage price quotes directly from their websites. The process doesn’t take much effort as you simply type in into a form. After you submit the form their rating system collects your driving record and credit report and generates a price. Online quotes makes comparing rates easy, but the work required to visit several different sites and enter the same data into a form gets old quite quickly. But it’s absolutely necessary to perform this step if you are searching for better prices.
Rate comparisons made easy
The preferred way to lower your rates uses one simple form to obtain quotes from several companies at one time. It’s a real time-saver, eliminates form submissions, and makes comparison shopping a little more enjoyable. Once the form is submitted, it is quoted and you are able to buy your choice of the resulting price quotes.
If the quotes result in lower rates, it’s easy to complete the application and purchase the new policy. This process can be completed in a matter of minutes and may save quite a bit of money.

Insuring your vehicles can cost a lot, but discounts can save money and there are some available to reduce the price significantly. Some discounts apply automatically when you complete an application, but some must be specifically requested before you will receive the discount. If they aren’t giving you every credit available, you are throwing money away.
A little note about advertised discounts, most discount credits are not given to the entire policy premium. The majority will only reduce specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. So despite the fact that it appears you could get a free car insurance policy, companies don’t profit that way. Any amount of discount will reduce your overall premium however.

When finding a reliable agent, you must know there are a couple different types of agents that you can select. Insurance agencies in Grafton are either captive or independent (non-captive). Either one can write coverage properly, but it’s important to know the differences since it can impact buying decisions.
Independent insurance agents are not locked into one company so they can insure your vehicles with many different companies and potentially find a lower price. If your agent finds better pricing, the agent simply finds a different carrier and you won’t have to switch agencies. When comparison shopping, we recommend you contact at a minimum one independent agency to have the most options to choose from.
The following is a list of independent agencies in Grafton that may be able to provide competitive price quotes.

Nodak Mutual Insurance – 860 W 12th St – Grafton, ND 58237 – (701) 352-1050
Captive agents can only write with one company such as State Farm, AAA and Liberty Mutual. They usually cannot compare other company’s rates so they have no alternatives for high prices. Captive agents are well schooled in insurance sales which helps them compete with independent agents.
