  1. Review your policies with an experienced insurance broker to ensure that you are adequately (but not over) insured. Experienced brokers will do the research and shopping for you.
  2. Raise your deductibles for all policies if you can. Accepting the risk for small losses can save you money.

  4. Install an anti-theft system. Many companies offer anti-theft discounts.
  5. Avoid tickets. The better your driving record, the lower your premiums.
  6. Avoid claims by preventing collisions. Drive defensively, sober and awake.
  7. Where possible, take public transportation to and from work, to obtain a lower driving class on your policy.
  8. Report insurance fraud to the appropriate authorities. Insurance fraud costs us all!

And for Commercial Insurance:

  1. Consult with your insurance broker before expanding into different geographical areas. Costs may vary dramatically.
