For being one of the relatively newer cities in Florida, Coral Springs boasts an energy and youthful feel that is a draw for many in the area both recreationally and as a home. Officially chartered in 1963 and primarily developed by Coral Ridge Properties Inc, its namesake, Coral Springs saw exponential growth in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s with 35,000+ new residents being added in each of those decades. Although the name would lead you to believe otherwise, there are not any natural springs located here with Florida’s natural springs being located in the northern and central parts of the state. Coral Springs is an ever growing city that serves as a great location with access to Miami, Ft Lauderdale and West Palm Beach all within an hour drive.
The overall livability, low crime rate, family oriented feel coupled with a lively restaurant and shopping scene make Coral Springs a location that appeals to people of all walks of life. However, with mass appeal brings a lot of traffic and Coral Springs is no exception to its own types of risk.
Managing cost on an auto insurance policy in Coral Springs is something that all customers are always looking to do, and rightfully so. In Coral Springs, the average person is paying around $2,981 per year ($248 per month) for auto Insurance. That is more than the Florida average of between $1,803- $2,309 per year ($150 to $192 per month). Coverage levels do vary, but you need to make sure that you are protecting your assets while simultaneously making sure your premium doesn’t become too costly. This type of balance isn’t always easy to obtain but with a little patience and a knowledgeable agent that you trust, you can be sure you are getting what you need without breaking the bank.
Insurance in itself is something that most people view as a drag and the process of finding the right provider for you can seem like an insurmountable task. With that in mind, Advantage Plus prides itself on taking on that burden for you. Here are a few examples of how you can do you part to protect your wallet and make sure you have the best rate possible:
Shop around – Listen, we understand that everyone has their own life and that work, commitments, family etc can eat up a lot of time so who has or wants to use the time to search around for insurance rates? As your agent, we take this process out of your hands and handle it for you. We have partnered with NINE different auto insurance providers to provide you the best options when choosing the policy that’s right for you. Many of the ones we have relationships with have ‘A’ ratings on A.M. Best if you’re looking for the best possible service and we also have other options for those of you with a firm budget. Whatever your needs may be, we’ve got you covered.
Raise your deductibles – If you are okay with coming out of pocket a little more should an incident arise, raising your deductibles will ultimately lower how much you pay for your premium and is one of the more common ways that people do so. Auto insurance in Coral Springs can tend to be a bit high at times so every little bit helps. Just make sure you are truthful with yourself though and be sure that the amount that you select for your deductible is manageable for you in the event that something should happen.
Pay in advance – This is very simple and can result in significant savings if you have the ability to pay your premium in full at the beginning of the policy term. Companies will not only give you a discount but they also eliminate any fees that they assess on their policies and the savings can amount to hundreds of dollars in some cases. If you are not in a position to do that, at very minimum set up your monthly installments on autopay as that is a way for you to get some form of a discount with most providers.
Telematics – This is not an option for every provider, but some do offer telematics tracking through either a device install or an application that you download on your phone. This allows the company to track your driving habits to get a more personalized view of you specifically. These will typically earn you a discount to a varying degree upon the inception of the policy. This gives you the opportunity to either earn more discounts with safe driving or potentially lose discounts if your driving habits are unfavorable in the eyes of the company. It’s important to be honest with yourself because your habits will ultimately determine how your rate develops over not only the life of your current policy but also for the ones you have going forward.
