make sure every year you shop around for insurance and then go back to your insurance company with the price you are getting. I've found if you do nothing and just renew each year they increment you ever so slightly every year until you are paying premium.

I pay for 2 vehicles here in NH. I have full coverage on both. One being a 4x4 truck. My combined insurance is just 716 year. I would love to see how far my policy would drop down there.

Yeah, I was shocked, but I shopped around and Allstate gave us almost the same rate that we had in Illinois. SF was surprised that AS was able to give us such a "low" rate and asked to see the statement of coverage...they still couldn't do any better.

When the guy gave me the price for the same coverage I currently have I almost hit the floor!

In Canada, I pay over $3000 a year for 2 cars and we are preferred drivers, over 25 with no accidents or tickets! Geico is only going to cost me $918 a year! I can't get over it!!!! I also saved huge on my home insurance.

Now, I can honestly say "I saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico!"

I love SC!
Geico's actually one of the more expensive companies out there, when we were shopping around they were a good $300more than our current insurer. On a side note, of course car insurance is more expensive in Canada, just like everything else; how else are you gonna pay for your "free" health care.

That's what we paid in Los Angeles. Anyone wanna guess what the common bond is between California and Canada? Let's just say, it's one of the main reasons that we moved here and one of the main reasons things are so much cheaper here: taxes.

I also priced out cable in SC vs Ontario and we will also be saving $30 a month.

I think the biggest shocker of moving to SC will be how much money we can save. And as a show of gratitude for our current decrease in expenses, I think I'll find a local charity to support. Gotta give to receive......
great attitude and welcome.

3 cars, $138/month with State Farm....quite a bit less than GA when we moved here a little over a year ago.... I was so happy! 2 of them are 06/07 and one of them is a 1967 mustang.
