I was chatting with a co-worker today about reducing debt and one way to reduce it is by not incurring additional expenses. Just then, my co-worker's spouse called saying she just got in a little accident.
Oy! Their car insurance rates are sure to increase! Coincidentally, my sponsor (take it as you like) introduced me to Insuranceportal Online (www.insuranceportalonline.com) today. Insurance, whether it's for a car, home or your life, seems to be one of those necessary evils. Well, it's not really an evil. I mean, it seems like a lot of money each month to shell out for peace of mind, but for sanity's sake, I'm all for peace of mind.
As a Florida driver and renter, I'm faced with the challenge of finding an insurance company which will offer reasonably priced car insurance and homeowners insurance. In a way, I feel as though I'm locked in with my current provider because not many Florida insurance agencies are willing to take on clients in hurricane-prone states. Oops! I said the "H" word. I digress...Will Insuranceportal Online help me???
I met with Geico people at a Sarasota art's fair last month. When I asked if they offer homeowners/renters insurance, they replied, "not yet." They still let me play their game and I won a gecko tire pressure gauge (see below) by spinning their wheel. I think my Mom was jealous - she likes the gecko, but I think she was happy with her "So Easy a Caveman Can Do It" t-shirt. (BTW - don't ya love the "Vixen" nail polish by Revlon? I know, I need to learn to stay within the lines...)
So now I have Insuranceportal Online to check out. They act as a broker to find the best rates in car insurance, life insurance and homeowners insurance. The submission form seems pretty simple and unobtrusive to get a rate quote. In my quest to reduce my debt, think I'll give it try.
