Car Insurance and Your Credit Score Reno NV

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 regulations in many states now allow this practice, although regulatory administrators admit they don't understand the connection between credit scores and car accident claims.

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.

How does it work?
