Our phone has been ringing a lot lately at the office with complaints about insurance premiums on the rise. Unfortunately, it seems that no matter what company you have your policies with these days, the rates seem to be going up. We know that this frustrating to everybody. There is nothing more annoying than getting that renewal and seeing that you must pay more, even though your car is a year older and you haven’t EVER received a speeding ticket or gotten into an accident! The reason for these increases is due to several factors. There are more people than ever moving to the NW, so there are more cars on the road. All those extra cars are causing more accidents. These newer cars, with all their fancy features, cost more to repair. Medical costs are on the rise as well. There are also things like distracted driving and uninsured drivers as well that are taking their toll. The silver lining to this dark cloud is that Cox Insurance is an INDEPENDENT AGENT!! This means that we work with MULIPLE insurance companies, not just one! We are doing our best to make sure that your insurance costs are as reasonable as possible, but if you get your renewal and haven’t yet heard from us, please give us a call and we can “shop around” to make sure you’re still getting the best deal. We want to hear from you, so please don’t hesitate to email or call us anytime!!
