When looking for car insurance, customers want to find the best coverage at the lowest price. There are many ways to achieve lower premiums, including installing several safety devices in their cars.

These safety devices include:

  • Airbags
    • They are standard on all new vehicles. Some older cars and trucks do not have them. Making sure that your vehicle has airbags means you can take advantage of this discount.
  • Anti-theft devices
    • There’s an abundance of aftermarket anti-theft devices that can be installed on vehicles. Alarm systems and kill switches are just a couple of examples that may help you pay a lower insurance rate.
  • Rear-view cameras
    • Technology has advanced to the point where most new automobiles have a rear-view camera factory installed. However, if your vehicle doesn’t have one, they can be installed. This will allow you to back up and see what’s behind your vehicle by viewing it on a monitor.
  • GPS
    • We all know that sometimes the GPS spouting directions at us can be frustrating when we’re out on the road. However, by installing a GPS tracking system in a hidden, hard to find location on the vehicle you can curb theft. Here’s how – the car with the device is easier for the police to track and find the vehicle. Insurers may offer a significant discount for drivers that install these GPS tracking systems on their car.

Have you recently installed any of these devices on your vehicle? Contact us today to find out if you are eligible for any discounts to your car insurance premiums.

  • I found it quite interesting when you said that when you install an alarm system in your car you can help reduce the rate of your insurance policy. My entire life I have gotten along with public transportation, and now that I am married my husband told me that it would be a good idea for us to get a car so we do not have to worry about spending time in the train or the bus while going to school and work. We need to figure out what the best type of insurance would be for our situation since we will only have one car and we will make sure that it has alarm systems installed.

  • I had no idea that if you have a rear-view camera installed it can lower your car insurance premium. I want to get an older car but I don’t want to pay a lot for car insurance. I’ll see if I can get a rear-view camera installed on it so I can pay less for my car insurance.

  • I had no idea that you can add a rear-view camera to be able to back up more safely and that will help you lower your premium for insurance. My daughter told me that she and her boyfriend are looking to buy a car together and they need to find the right kind of insurance. They are both in college and I think it would be awesome if they took this step together, so I am wi.ling to find some information for them.
