Car Insurance and Your Credit Score Arkansas City KS

Your credit score is used by car insurance companies to determine what you pay. It's important to know your score before you shop for insurance. It's easily possible that someone who has never had an accident and never filed a claim could pay up to three times as much for insurance as another similar customer with an identical vehicle โ€” because of differences in credit scores.

Companies such as Allstate charge poor-credit customers as much as three times the rate for customers with excellent credit. In fact, credit history is becoming one of the major factors, if not the major factor, in determining insurance rates.
