“I am satisfied with my insurance company's policy because it offers all the coverage I need at a good price. The policy is easy to understand.”: one insurance holder told Raltin in its survey. Usually, getting a suitable auto insurance in New Hampshire is a difficult task and requires customers to analyze and compare multiple policy offerings
According to a recent Raltin analysis in Manchester, New Hampshire, the cheapest car insurance price starts at $430. The study focuses on the premiums offered by different companies in Manchester. It appears that prices differ by a driver’s background and driving record. The cheapest premium rates range between $430 and $1,400. Progressive Northern Insurance, for example, offers the cheapest quote for 72-year-old married drivers who have no traffic violation over the past three years.
This analysis makes the following assumptions. First, the bodily injury liability limit is $100,000 per person and $300,000 per occurrence; property damage liability is $100,000; deductibles for collision and comprehensive are $500 and $250; and medical payments are estimated at $5,000. Second, for a new business, the premium-paying period is 12 months. Third, premiums are not considered for multi-policy or package discounts. Fourth, if an insurer sells single limit liability coverage only, the premiums reflect a combined single limit of $300,000. Fourth, the insured must have prior insurance with a standard carrier at the same limit and no lapse in coverage. Fifth, if a company considers credit when calculating the premium, it means the policyholder has the highest credit rating. In other words, lower credit scores will generate higher premiums. Finally, vehicles do not have anti-theft, anti-lock, or any other safety device unless noted within the Vehicle Identification Number.
This study calculated the difference between the cheapest and median prices for a particular category of driver to estimate their potential savings. The findings suggest that 30-year-old single male drivers with a history of no traffic violation report the highest savings ($1,815) by investing in the right company. For this category, Progressive Northern Insurance offers the cheapest premium at $462 and Co-operative Insurance provides the median premium at $2,277.
The second highest savings at $1,393 are by 44-year-old married drivers with one traffic ticket in the past three years. For this cohort, the cheapest premium is offered by Main Street America Protection Insurance at $1,400 and the median premium is by Providence Mutual Fire Insurance at $2,793.
