Affordable Hawaii Auto Insurance — My Credit Rating?

Todays Date: January 17, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

This one is still on the subject of making as much savings on your Hawaii auto insurance as possible. I’ll take a look into an aspect that is becoming increasingly important to insurance companies in determining what an individual’s risk level is. This factor has a deep effect on your rates…

Do your best to have a very good credit record. The logic of this position is so clear to those who have business dealings with people…

Your credit record shows a lot about you. If you pay your bills in a timely manner most insurers will assume that you are financially stable and, therefore, a smaller risk.

Here is what they think: Those who give attention to their bills in a timely manner are also more prone to be more thoughtful in other aspects of their lives — including driving. They feel that “irresponsible” behavior towards financial obligations almost always means general irresponsibility — Even when driving.

If you have a bad history, you’ve defaulted on your payments and that is bad news for any insurance company. It means you may also neglect premium payments or might even be declared bankrupt as a worst case scenario.

Who would pay the premiums of a bankrupt client? That’s not a focus in this article. Its side effect on the premium you’ll pay is our main focus here.

Since you are a bigger risk to them, they inflate your rates. You can see your premium increased by as much as 100% in some cases if you skipped a couple of payments on a credit card. Defaulting in your credit card payments for a certain number of times can even lead to termination of your insurance contract.

Since it now also affects your car insurance rate thus affecting your total expenditure, try to keep a great credit record.

An excellent credit record is a basis for getting discounts. If you are in business, you’ll prefer to have a client with an excellent credit history. They are very unlikely to miss payment on their insurance rates.

Like we said, you can save some bucks because of your credit record. But how? I’m glad you asked. There are many sites out there that send you Hawaii auto insurance quotes once you complete their form. Find as many of them as you can and get quotes from all. From the various quotes each gives, you will know which favors, not just you credit record, but your whole profile. This is extremely important as it can bring savings of over $1000 in some cases.
