How much will it be to insure my car?
I want to insure a 2017 Ford Escape. I stick to a pretty tight budget, so I want to know how much it'll cost before I purchase insurance. How much will insurance cost?
“Budgeting for car insurance is a smart decision when you want to insure a car. Car insurance premiums vary, so pinpointing the exact you may owe is difficult to assess.
Car insurance companies look at several factors when deciding on a rate for an insured. Some factors they look at are:
- Driving history
- Credit history
- Claims history
- Type of vehicle
If you have a clean driving record, you can assume your rate will be lower than someone with claims or accidents. However, the only way to know what your cost for insurance will be is to shop around.
By gathering quotes from different insurers, you can get an idea of your cost. You can request quotes online, by phone, or using a free app like Jerry. It takes less than a minute to sign up and you’ll be presented with competitive rates from up to 50 top providers.
