It can be tremendously helpful to bundle your home and auto insurance with a single carrier. Many offer discounts when you place multiple lines of business with them—from 20% to as much as 40%.
Carriers also often give credits (effectively reducing your rates) based on improvements or additions that make your home safer or less likely to suffer a loss. For example:
- Is your home equipped with a central alarm for burglary and/or fire?
- Do you have fire extinguishers?
- Are there deadbolts on your doors?
- Do you have a sump pump in your basement?
