Yuma Car Insurance Rates by Driving and Accident History

Even after you establish an insurance policy, a good driving record can keep insurance rates low. Though underwriters look at your driving history at the beginning of your policy, they’ll look at it again each time your policy comes up for renewal. Accidents or other kinds of risky driving behavior are reasons why your insurance rates might climb. Even if you’ve kept a clean record all of your life, a failure-to-stop violation can make your rates skyrocket. Your rates could rise 400 percent—from an average of $185 per month to $765 per month for the same coverage.

Yuma Car Insurance Rates by Credit Tier

Insurance underwriters collect a lot of information about you to ascertain your level of risk and assign rates. While most people know that questions about age and the kind of car you drive are common, it might surprise you to know that car insurance companies also consider your credit score. Studies show a direct relationship between your ability to manage money and the level of risk you should be assigned. If you aren’t already actively managing your credit score, working on this one thing may help keep your rates low. Drivers with a good credit score in Yuma can expect to pay an average of $154 for their monthly insurance premiums.
