99.99 for motorcycle insurance

The renewal for Jim’s motorcycle insurance came this week – I can’t believe how cheap it is! (Knock on wood!) We pay only $100 a year for his motorbike insurance, which is a steal compared to how much we pay for our car insurance. Of course, the cars would cost a LOT more to replace if anything happened to either one, as we found out when Jim hit that deer that deer hit Jim last year.

That said, I usually get new insurance quotes every two years or so, just to make sure our current policy can’t be beat. It only takes a few minutes, and it gives me the peace of mind of knowing I’m getting a decent deal from our current provider. In fact, it was one of my random quote checks that led us to our current insurer back in 2001. We saved almost $800 by switching, and kept the same coverage and level of service we were used to. Remember back in the day, when you had to call up insurance companies one by one to get a quote, telling each one your name, address, car details, mother’s maiden name, date of your high school prom, and tons of other useless details? We have it easy, being able to pop online, type all of our details out, and get 3 or 4 quotes back at once. There’s no excuse for not shopping around on a regular basis to make sure you’re getting the best price possible on your car, motorcycle, or homeowners insurance!

(Bleah – speaking of homeowners, only 3 more months til renewal.)
