Car Insurance Issues....

Fri, 11/24/2017 - 00:50
Currently I pay $182 a month to insure my old 2005 Ford Ranger, which is insane. What I want to know is will it be complicated to change insurance companies if need be to lower my rates? Can a company ask me if I am epileptic? My current company does not know that I am, but I am not sure I can get a reasonable rate with them either.


Okay so first, my fiance

Okay so first, my fiance drives a 2004 Ford Ranger and he only pays $120 and we were just quoted by a different company at $70. I don't know your driving history but that seems like a lot that you're paying. Two, my car insurance company does not know that I have epilepsy, if it's controlled it's really not anything they can hold against you (or should know). It's super easy to switch just pick a different insurance company, fill out the coverage you want and get your quote! Good luck!
