Tips on How to Lower Your Car Insurance Payments

The ins and outs of what goes into calculating your car insurance payment can be like rocket science. However, you can lower your car insurance payments in a few key ways, but not a lot of people can comb through an insurance policy and pick out all the miniscule ways in choosing the perfect policy. If you just follow these tips you will be on your way to reducing your current rate.

Park in a garage

Utilizing a garage or a covered parking structure is an easy way to reduce your payment on a lot of plans.

Shop for safety

Insurance companies keep a close eye on vehicle safety ratings and know which safety features make a difference. Buying a car with modern safety features like rear cameras, lane keeping systems, and pedestrian alerts provide you a return in a lower bill.

Trim your coverage

Always drive a legally covered vehicle, but if you fully own your car, then you may consider dropping or reducing your collision coverage. Many plans include rental car insurance or roadside assistance packages, which are often optional.

Stop by Bell Mitsubishi, and ask our experts about other tips and tricks around your car insurance.

Winter Wonderland Drives Near Rahway, New Jersey

Winter weather can create some scenic views you will not find any other time of year. Soft snow and a peaceful atmosphere can change any drive from thrilling to relaxing. Winter wonderland drives near Rahway allow you to make the most of the serenity of the season and take in the sights with your family.

State Route 49

State Route 49 is home to several scenic drives, but the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Delaware River steal the show. The bridge’s bright lights illuminate the river once the sun goes down. The light show, combined with the quiet setting of winter, create a wonderful sight to take in after dark. Drivers can also check out the peaceful winter grasslands of Supawna Meadows Wildlife Refuge along 49.

Pulaski Skyway

Stretching more than 3 miles from Newark to Jersey City, the Pulaski Skyway is a beautiful sight in any season, but it’s particularly impressive in the winter. Warehouses, power lines, and train tracks might not seem like the ideal scenery, but it all comes together when you view it from the bridge. At night, the bridge is home to city skylights that few other landmarks can match.

Palisades Interstate Parkway

The Palisades Interstate Parkway opened to the public in 1958. Rockefeller Lookout and Alpine Lookout offer some of the greatest views that New Jersey has to offer. Although the winter weather is far from a desirable time to picnic, drivers can still enjoy the open landscape with snowy scenery.

If you plan on heading out and enjoying the sights this winter, be sure to drive safely. For the added confidence of a vehicle with Super All-Wheel Control, stop in and see us at Bell Mitsubishi!
