How the Internet Has Changed the Auto Industry in a Positive Way

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

The internet has definitely changed the way that people do things, especially when it comes to making purchases and searching for information. It has made things a lot more convenient and easy to do than ever before. The internet's impact on the insurance industry is no different.

Every major company in the insurance industry uses the internet as a way to reach people. It has allowed insurance companies to not only sell, but to also educate their clients and provide more effective customer service.

The internet allows you to research so much before you make any decisions about your car insurance policy. 

You can easily:

• Read about various insurance providers to gain more knowledge of what they have to offer. 
• Look at blog posts and news articles about the latest happenings in the industry. 
• Ask questions and request details about insurance topics that are related to your specific situation. 
• Inform yourself about what you need to know and what to consider before choosing an insurance policy. 
• Check out insurance industry association websites. 
• Get a quote online for car insurance from an insurer or use an online insurance broker to get a series of quotes to compare. 

Out of all the ways how the Internet has changed the auto industry, I love how I can do so much from the comfort of my own home or office, and even while sipping my favorite coffee at a cafe. I can do it when I get up in the morning, during my lunch break or after everyone is fast asleep. I also like that I don't have to call someone and rely on what they tell me. I can read all about it on my own before making any decision at all.

The Most Stolen Cars -2012

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Every year the Insurance Bureau of Canada releases a report listing the most stolen cars of the year. The  cars on the list are often easier to steal and are therefore targeted by thieves.

For many vehicle owners it can be a little nerve racking taking a peek at the list. No one wants to see their vehicle on the list. 

Have a peek, is your car on the list?

Ten most stolen cars of 2012:

  1. 2000 Honda Civic SiR 2DR
  2. 1999 Honda Civic SiR 2DR
  3. 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer SS 4DR 4WD
  4. 2007 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  5. 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4DR AWD
  6. 2006 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  7. 2002 Cadillac Escalade 4DR AWD
  8. 2005 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  9. 2004 Ford F350 SD 4WD PU
  10. 1999 Acura Integra 2DR

The Honda Civic has been on list for as long as I can remember, and I have had friends who have avoided buying one because of it. Not to mention that they were paranoid about the higher cost of auto insurance.

Even if your vehicle is not on the list, there are still precautions you may want to take to reduce the risk of having your vehicle be stolen. 

Some of these ideas are simple, yet easy to forget, especially when you are in a hurry.

  1. Always lock your doors and roll up your windows
  2. Park in high traffic areas or attended lots
  3. At night, park in your garage or covered area if possible
  4. Install an alarm system if you don’t already have one on your car
  5. Never leave valuables in your car unattended. Keep them in the trunk.

Locking your doors is quite easy these days as most people have remotes for convenience. However, rolling up your windows on a hot summer day can often be a challenge. We usually leave our windows open just a crack so that it doesn't get too hot inside the car while it is parked. This of course is risky since any opening makes it just that much easier for a theft to happen.

We also try to keep our car in the garage, which has been simpler to do once we installed a garage door opener. 

I hope you try to keep some of these tips in mind next time your are out and about!
