Getting ripped off.
So my parents have been with the same insurance company for atleast 20 year, and infact, my grandpa and grandma have been with them for what seems like for ever. Now I am on my parents account with them for now. But my insurance is rather high for the vehicles I have had. I bought my own car 2 years this November and sense then my moms name has been on it and I have been under her's.
I paid mine, which has actually be her's and it was about $350 for 6 months. Bascilly $700 a year. Recently my mom bought a new truck and my name is now on my car. It is going from $350 every 6 months to....$850 ever 6 months which is about $1700 a year. Its BS. We have never filed a claim or anything. None of us with any accident.
I guess there is good news though. Appearntly after I turn 21, which is before the next payment is do, it is suppose to go down to about $550 for 6 months.
Its still a rip off though, they are going to be lucky if I don't switch insurance companies once I move out here soon.
here in australia there insurance companies that only charge you money for how maney KM's you drive! (in your case miles you drive.)
Here's an example;
EDIT: The only reason i know about them is because there are a lot of adverts on TV for them! ;)
Insurance companys suck.
You pay, pay, pay, your whole life, get nothing in return.
Then if you ever do have a claim, your rates go up.
Like a good neihbor my a$$.
i would be screwed...i drive atleast 40 miles on a normal day.

Shop around for quotes, it cant hurt.
I have 3 cars (full coverage), a motorcycle(full), and home insurance with Missouri Farm Bureau and pay around 230 a month :(
The relief is you have muitple cars that you are paying for. I am paying for 1 and living with my parents.
