Motorcycle Insurance Tips

Spring will be here before you know it. If you’re planning on purchasing a new motorcycle or if you already have one, it may be a good time to start shopping around for motorcycle insurance prices.

There are a lot of ways you can save money on your motorcycle insurance policy. The first step should be to check with your insurer to see if they offer any new discounts. Sometimes they’ll offer a discount if you’re willing to take a driving safety course. Sometimes doing this little step can save you 10-15% on your monthly motorcycle insurance premium.

If you own more than one motorcycle, you could consider combining your policies into a multi-vehicle policy. A multi-motorcycle policy can typically get you a better price than doing two separate policies.

Most people know that the year, make and model of your motorcycle can make a big difference in how much you’ll pay in insurance, but did you know that where you store your motorcycle could effect your premium? If you store your motorcycle in a safe and secure place, your insurance costs will likely decrease. Make sure your motorcycle insurance agent knows that you lock it up when it’s not in use.

If you have any other questions about motorcycle insurance, Vern Fonk Insurance agency can help you get your answers. We are experts at finding the best rates and the best coverage amounts. Call one of our locations to find out how we can save you money today!
