Ohio drivers could save approximately 55% each year, but they just don't want to go online and compare rates.

Second, compare prices from independent agents, exclusive agents, and direct companies. Direct and exclusive agents can only quote rates from a single company like Progressive or State Farm, while agents who are independent can quote prices for a wide range of insurance providers.

Third, compare the new rates to your current policy to see if a cheaper price is available. If you find a better price, make sure coverage is continuous and does not lapse.

Fourth, tell your current company of your intent to cancel your existing policy and submit payment and a completed application to your new insurance company. As soon as you receive it, place your new proof of insurance paperwork in a readily accessible location in your vehicle.

Car insurance in Ohio serves several purposes

Even though it's not necessarily cheap to insure a Volvo in Columbus, car insurance is not optional due to several reasons.

  • Most states have compulsory liability insurance requirements which means state laws require specific limits of liability insurance in order to drive the car. In Ohio these limits are 25/50/25 which means you must have $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and $25,000 of property damage coverage.
  • If you have a lien on your Volvo XC60, most lenders will require you to have physical damage coverage to guarantee their interest in the vehicle. If you do not pay your insurance premiums, the lender will be forced to insure your Volvo at a much higher rate and require you to reimburse them for the much more expensive policy.
  • Insurance protects your car and your assets. It will also pay for many types of medical costs for not only you but also any passengers injured in an accident. Liability insurance, one of your policy coverages, also pays expenses related to your legal defense if you are named as a defendant in an auto accident. If your Volvo gets damaged, collision and comprehensive (also known as other-than-collision) coverage will pay all costs to repair after the deductible has been paid.

The benefits of having car insurance are definitely more than the cost, especially for larger claims. Unknowingly, the average driver is wasting up to $865 each year so you should quote your policy with other companies at every policy renewal to save money.
