Credit score is one of the biggest factors in your rates. Location and driving record after that.


Correct! Credit is huge! Someone can have the same factors such as age, location, type of vehicle, etc. But one could have double the rate of the other if credit is bad!!


Go to an independent broker who can quote you with several carriers to look for the best rate!

Credit should have nothing to do with the price.

Have you taken a mature driver course? I think you can get a 10% discount for three years if you take one and you can do it online. I've used this company before for my son after he got a ticket: Mature Driver Florida Auto Insurance Discount
What?! Hell no they're cheaper!

I own 2! Combined I pay less than my brother in law does monthly on 2 trucks than his 1 month V6 dodge charger!!!
Plates and title are cheaper too!



Full collision and comp 500 deductibles 100/300/100 both trucks 260 per month.
That's for the half ton in the back ground and the 3/4 dmax foreground.
Brother in law pays 335.

wonder if it's due to on star and vin etched windows...
I just turned 30 though... clean record.

Credit score is an excellent indicator of driving risk. That is why it is used.

Not all companies offer a discount for that driving course. Fla Farm Bureau Ins doesn't offer it. My insurance has gone up steadily , for no reason. It's well known Ins is a serious problem in this state. One the state fails to deal with. There is a ton of low income and poverty situations in Fla. It is a state that doesn't believe in efficient transit, even in its biggest Metros. People are forced to drive, and can't possibly afford th outrageous ins. Definitely a recipe for disaster. I'm not surprised though, why should I be.

Just went through my renewal period...up about $300 a year along with a "Sorry about that, just the way it is " explanation.
Checked other companies and just sighed and paid it

There is a score for your insurance rating similar to a credit score. I forgot the name and recently just learned about it after getting jacked by state farm every six months. I found out I had a very high score as I suspected and bought as well as increased my coverage greatly with that score info at a far better rate than I had been paying state farm for years. They offered nothing and I was leaving no matter.

This insurance score can be seen one time a year for free if you inquire.

ALL insurance companies weigh credit heavily. Insurance companies look at a person with bad credit as one who might commit insurance fraud. They also see someone with bad credit as not responsible and therefore a risk.
