This summer, my husband and I undertook a move. A relocation from Massachusetts to Arizona has been undertaken by others, no doubt. We decided to make things a little more interesting than a direct route. We headed north. Our circuitous route is winding us through Newfoundland, Portugal, and North Carolina. When one would think to take the southerly route from the Carolina’s to Arizona in the winter months, we will make Bugs Bunny’s famous right turn at Albuquerque to get to Bozeman, Montana. Then, we’ll drive to Arizona.

How Does Your Vehicle Affect Your Car Insurance?

Bert Maxwell's picture

Auto insurance rates vary just as much as people vary. Two different people with the same driving record and the same car might pay different prices for the same insurance, because there are many factors that go into deciding the price of the car insurance. Since it is mandatory to have a liability insurance policy, there’s no way of escaping this expenditure. But you sure can save some money in the process if you have not bought a vehicle yet.
