Do You Have The Right Car Insurance

There’s no doubt that car insurance is indispensable these days, but there are ways in which the cost can be reduced, and it is worthwhile to keep these in mind when seeking insurance.insurance

Car ownership is widespread, and the number of cars on the roads is expected to increase. In the last five years, online-only providers of car insurance have grown at an astounding rate, which has forced existing insurers to innovate quickly. Non-insurance companies have also entered the market, bringing with them large networks. Competition is so great that shopping around is the best way to save money on car insurance.  The internet is an invaluable resource for people seeking car insurance. Quotes can be compared easily. Online providers allow you to escape ‘phone queues’ and needless chatter and generate a quote within minutes. With no large branches, the cost may well be lower. Progressive became the first company to sell car insurance over the internet in 1997.

It is first necessary to choose the appropriate form of car insurance. Comprehensive coverage provides protection against loss of or damage to a vehicle or the property of others from collisions, fire, theft or attempted theft, acts of God, and acts of vandals, regardless of who is at fault. This is the most expensive option. 

Car emissions are one of the greatest contributors to climate change, so people driving fuel-efficient cars can receive cheaper insurance. The amount you pay for insurance can be reduced by taking a Safe Driving Course.

The cost of insurance depends on the age and gender of the driver, which cannot be changed. Women could choose companies that insure only women, as the cost is less than coverage for men, who are more prone to accidents. Similarly, low-risk drivers could select companies that only deal with their like and exclude such drivers convicted of drunk driving or people who own sports vehicles. Other factors are the make and model of the vehicle, the vehicle’s annual mileage, where the vehicle is stored overnight, the town and whether the vehicle is owned or financed.

You can reduce the amount of your premium by limiting the number of drivers and particularly drivers under the age of 25. The optimal situation is to have a named driver only. A premium will be lower if you have been a customer of an insurer for more than five years, so you should not switch between insurers for frivolous reasons. Another way to reduce the cost of a premium is to increase the deductible – the amount you must pay in the event of an accident.

When contemplating the benefits, you should imagine the circumstances where they would prove useful. As an extreme example, an extra allowance for damage to a caravan will be of no benefit if you do not own one.

What Could Possibly Go wrong With Your Toilet?

What Could Possibly Go wrong With Your Toilet?

We love our toilets. Sometimes more reading can be done in the bathroom than at the library.  In addition to reading, we text, watch television, talk on the phone or just stare off into space.

Some homes have just one toilet.  Most homes have at least two toilets.  Some huge homes have five or six!  Then there is the ever popular half bath with the toilet and the sink, but no shower or tub.  This half bath is often a good use for the space under the stairs.

Toilet

Yes we love our toilets, except when they are not working properly.  The worst fear is a toilet that doesn’t flush all the way and as you watch the water rise, you freeze in your tracks and stare in disbelief; you mumble some expletives, look frantically for the plunger which isn’t there because it is in the other bathroom.  You now realize it is too late to try and turn the water to the toilet off because it is hard to reach behind the commode to turn the valve.

So now you are watching and listening to water cascade over the top of the bowl and onto your floor and rug, or worse yet the wood floor you just put in.  the second fear begins to pop into your heard that maybe the whole sewer line is backed up and it’s just not the toilet.  You wish you had called a plumber to run a sewer machine to clean your lines from debris and roots.

After locating the plunger, you push and push and the water and waste finally goes down the drain.  Now you wonder if you should flush again to see if it drains properly this time.  Oh we love our toilets when they work.  They are ugly beasts when they don’t.

What else can go wrong with your toilet?  Why not call our office to schedule a plumbing inspection!  Or schedule a sewer machine to clear your lines.
