How often do I need to pay for my car insurance policy?
Many car insurance companies offer six month or twelve month insurance policies. You can pay the premium monthly or in full. However, you’ll earn a nice discount if you pay for your car insurance policy up front for either one year or six months.
How do you determine what my car insurance rate will be?
Like most car insurance companies, the top carriers we represent groups customers based on similar characteristics, evaluates their claims experiences within these groups and determines what to charge individuals with characteristics similar to members of the group. A higher rate is charged for customers more likely to have claims, and a lower rate for customers less likely to have claims.
We use insurance scores and we also consider the type and value of the vehicle, your driving record, location, gender, age, and other factors.

Do all car insurance companies offer the same discounts and coverages or are they different?
Most basic coverages, such as liability, collision, comprehensive, medical payments, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage are offered by major companies. However, discounts, specialized coverages, and auto insurance rates can vary between companies. For instance, not all companies offer total loss replacement coverage, student discounts, good driving discounts, or homeownership discounts.
How do I know what type of car insurance coverage I need?
At Tristar Insurance Services, we have a conversation with you to determine the coverage you need to protect you from the unexpected insurance claim. Our highly trained professional car insurance agents know what questions to ask you in order to properly insure you for your specific needs.
Does my car insurance cost more if I drive more?
Your car insurance pricing can be based on how many miles you drive to and from work. If you’re retired and you don’t drive to work, you may be eligible to lower rates compared to someone that drives 30 miles to work everyday.
Choosing the right car insurance company
While price and coverage may be deciding factors when you purchase auto insurance, it’s worth considering the reputation and financial stability of prospective insurance providers as well. You can check review websites and talk to friends about their experiences with insurers.
