Car Insurance and Your Credit Score Hastings MN

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.

Insurance companies use a secret formula to calculate a customer's "insurance score" that is not quite the same as the more familiar FICO score from credit reporting agencies such as , Transunion, and Experian. Although the score itself may be different, the end result will nearly always be the same. If a customer has a poor FICO score, he'll almost certainly have a poor insurance score.

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.
