One the things we are constantly scared of as motorists is increased auto insurance premiums. This is one of the reason why we don’t want to call to our carrier often with the changes in our life. Even there is a chance of saving money we don’t want them start digging into our lives concerned that they will find something to charge more money. They are already looking at our credit score and God knows what else.
This can actually be exactly the point why we need to come clean and work around the problems. They are going to find out about our driving history and accidents anyway. Most companies are as concerned about premium leakage as we are concerned about paying too much. If they are not collecting the premium correspond to the risk they will be losing out on rightful revenues. That is why they look at our lives and any available public records about us, listed drivers and cars.
If you get away with paying less for your premium by not telling everything to the carrier you are cheating in a way. For example, when you are in a shop, do you go and change the price tag of the item you want to buy with a cheaper one? This would be exactly the same when you are buying a cheaper insurance when you should pay more.
If we follow supermarket theme, you can actually buy things a lot cheaper. All you have to do is look for products are currently on promotion. There are hundreds of them and companies regularly do them. Alternatively, you can go and check a cheaper supermarket for essential items as well. These way you could save hundreds of dollars on your grocery bill every month. The buyer and seller has to agree to the price. Instead of trying to buy a product cheaper from a supplier who actually wants to sell them more expensively you go and find another supplier who is happy to do a deal with you.
So, What do you do when you just got a negative impact on your auto insurance? For example what do you do when you get a speeding ticket? Do you tell your insurer as soon as it sticks or do you wait for them to find out? Honestly, most people wouldn’t pick up the phone tell their insurers that they just got a traffic ticket. And most companies may be fine with finding it at the next renewal on their own searches.
However, you must remember that it is obligatory to let the companies know about the changes in your life. You cannot pick and choose which information to share and which ones to keep to yourself. This condition is written in every policy document and one of the common parts of insuring anything. The policyholders must share information with insurers. They must provide accurate information and keep it up to date.
What happens if you don’t tell them about the speeding and other tickets or any other material facts that will influence your car insurance rates? Usually companies let it slight by them and don’t make a big fuss. They charge you the right premium the next time by checking all the relevant information. But they could make a big deal out of it if they want to especially if you are hiding more than one ticket.
