This is something all of us should have. Good car insurance. Of course, in many states, Vermont included, it is a legal requirement to have car insurance to legally operate your vehicle. And with good reason. If you are broke and accidentally (or worse) damage property or injure someone, there is no way for the injured/damaged party to be compensated. You could be strapped to a judgement for life or the party may never have compensation. So, we all pool our money together in the form of an insurance company and cover each other’s losses. Ideally, this is something you should never have to use, but it is very important to have this protection.
I think one thing is certain. Given how tightly regulated the auto insurance market is, no matter where you go, as long as it is from a recognized, national or local company, you are going to get the protection you need. Pricing is very, very similar between companies. What you may not realize is that your credit rating actually affects your auto insurance rates. So, shop around. If it has been awhile since you switched carriers, see if your credit rating has improved. You could get a much better deal and use it as a bargaining chip with your current provider.
