Yesterday, just as I was about to take the dog outside to do her business the phone rang. I don’t usually answer the phone if I don’t recognize the number or caller ID, but I decided to pick it up. It was someone asking me to do a survey for our insurance company.
I didn’t mind doing the survey as we are pleased with our insurance company. However, as I answered the questions it occurred to me that it might not be a bad idea to call around or get an online auto insurance and home insurance quote from other companies just to see if we’re still getting the best rates.
I mean, the last time I really went around and got insurance quotes was 7 years ago when we were buying our house. Maybe there’s another company out there now that would offer us better rates.
It can’t hurt to check.
I’ve also been meaning to call our insurance company to see if they’ll give us another percentage off our home insurance rate now that we have a large breed dog. I’ve heard that some insurance companies consider a large dog in the home security so they’ll give a discount.
If you have a large dog have you tried to get a lower rate on your home insurance?
