Pleasant Surprise with my Car Insurance
When I began thinking about selling my car, I listed lower insurance costs as one of the benefits. I paid $652 for six months of coverage in February, which works out to $108 per month. Sure, that included two cars, but I only drove one of them. It's never made sense that I should have to pay more for liability coverage because I owned two cars (I can never drive more than one of them at a time!).
When I called my insurer to drop coverage of the G5 I was delighted by the new figure: $190, or $31 per month. I wasn't expecting a decrease of more than 2/3.
