Automobile policies service or damage

Policies both driving or fixing

  • Extended service maybe
  • Planned ownership
  • Quality questions
  • Factory policies only
  • Repair question ratios
  • More desirable sale but not more money
  • High tech means high price repairs
  • Car, truck, motorcycle, motorhome or boat, Insurance is part of the process
  • Auto insurance is another plan
  • Just because they sound like the least expensive
  • Hundreds of companies, millions of quotes
  • Driving record isn’t number one
  • Credit is Key
  • What loyalty?
  • Teens mean dollars
  • Bundles mean nothing
  • Where are the discounts?
  • Shop them all
