Driving a motor vehicle in Texas requires different responsibilities. One of those is financial responsibility. To maintain financial responsibility, you’re required to have minimum liability insurance in the amount of $30,000 per person, $60,000 per accident and $25,000 in property damage coverage. Although Texas has one of the best mandatory liability insurance statutes in the country, minimum coverage just isn’t enough. $30,000 is about enough to cover somebody’s night in the emergency room and a couple of days in intensive care.
Minimum liability coverage doesn’t cover any of your medical bills whether an accident is your fault or not. It won’t cover damage or replacement of your vehicle, and It’s certainly not going to do anything to help you if you’re hit but an uninsured motorist because you don’t have any coverage for that either.

Because of that, we’re able to give you choices on who your insurer will be, your coverage and policy limits and how premiums will be paid.
Because we maintain working relationships with so many insurance companies, we’re not influenced by any one insurer. The information we give you is objective and free from bias. We’re able to get the best quotes from all of the insurers we work with. That’s the type of information you want to make choices from. We can even customize an insurance package for you that’s suited to your specific needs.

The cost of living in Texas is affordable to many. From housing to car insurance, many people still have a healthy discretionary fund after paying their bills. However, every opportunity to save money is always welcomed. Whether you have personal or commercial auto insurance, the following contributes to the rate you pay for your insurance premiums.
You Pay More When You Drive More
Driving frequency is one factor many people do not consider when they are getting quotes for insurance. When you drive frequently, whether for a job or leisure, you encounter more risks. You can reduce the cost of your car insurance by carpooling or driving less each week.
Where You Live Affects Your Car Insurance Rates
As indicated above, the rate you pay for car insurance is determined by risks. The more risk factors you have, the more you will pay for your insurance. For instance, an individual with a learners permit pays more because they are inexperienced drivers. Individuals who live in areas with increased crime rates pay more for their car insurance since the potential for loss is greater in their area.
Your Driving Record Can Help You Pay Less
