It is a properly identified truth that owning a car isn’t something that is cheap and reasonably priced. Speak to any driver and they will tell you a different story about how some element of auto ownership is overly expensive, no matter whether it is the cost of fuel, vehicle tax or automobile insurance.

And it appears that every single single connected price does nothing at all but enhance year on year.

This prevalent belief amongst motorists was cemented in latest weeks when the RAC published their annual Cost of Motoring (CoM) index which stated that the amount of funds needed to own a vehicle on a year basis has improved by 6.3 percent to 5,869 pounds, the equivalent of 112.87 pounds per week or 48.91 pence per mile.

The concern that a lot of vehicle owners have with this cost is that while breaking it down to a per mile figure tends to make it seem manageable, it sadly does not function like that and you’re probably to need to have to spend out lump sums of money at numerous factors across a year or the life of the vehicle.

Whilst some of the fees that you have to pay out will be ad hoc, there are specific methods to ease the monetary pressure somewhat, specifically in terms of the actual expense of the car, where there are 3 separate methods for you to fund your obtain that allows you to spread the price of the vehicle (plus interest) more than an agreed period.

And when you realise that 80 % of folks use one of these three car finance alternatives to fund their auto buy, you commence to realize just how well-known they are.

Firstly, you have vehicle leasing. The most frequent item amongst leasing is Individual Contract Acquire (PCP). Leasing allows you to drive about in a car of your selection by merely paying a smaller month-to-month quantity than you would if you bought the whole car with finance. Since you’re leasing it, you don’t pay for the whole expense of the automobile but you have the alternative at the end of the contract if you want to, otherwise you can basically hand it back to the leasing company and get a new one.

Yet another alternative is employ obtain, which was once the most well-known form of auto finance. It is exactly where you borrow the cash to finance the obtain of the whole car and you repay that total quantity back (plus interest) over an agreed period. You do not personal the car until you have created the final payment.

Ultimately, you have a individual loan or automobile loan. The principal distinction between this and hire acquire is that a individual loan is income lent to you to purchase and personal a car outright as opposed to employ purchase where you never. If you default on hire buy you are going to have your auto taken off you, if you default on a individual loan, then the lender will attempt and recoup the income that they are owed straight from you.

No one will argue that vehicle ownership is pricey, no matter how significantly income you may possibly have in your bank account. There are a variety of approaches to ease the pressures and by choosing either automobile leasing, a employ obtain agreement or a personal loan can spread the discomfort of the price of ownership but it comes at a cost – interest.

    The car insurance providers are earning billions from us.

    Should not the us government part of and compete against them for the business?

    In the end we’re needed legally to possess insurance.

    Is not it wrong of these companies to really earn profits from an item they’re selling? Should not the us government stop this profiteering?

    My insurance agent is always trying to sell me higher and higher limits, which of course cost more than lower limits. Most recently he recommended insurance that would cover up to $1 Million in liability per incident. Do I really need that much insurance? I been driving for decades and have never had an at fault accident.

    I mean this is getting out of control. First we’re forced to buy automobile insurance. Shouldn’t it be OUR choice? Then some of us are forced to buy Private Mortgage Insurance. Doctors are forced to buy malpractice insurance. Businesses and individuals are forced to buy liability insurance.
    When will it end?
    When will Mike Cox finally sack-up and sue on behalf of Michigan residents who don’t want to buy auto insurance, liability insurance, or malpractice insurance?

    Regarding automobile insurance

    An automobile insurance executive believes that there is a relationship between automobile color and driving (Speeding) habits. Using a combination of information from policy statements and DMV records, she compiles the following list of data. Each data point is the number of miles per hour the drive was going over the speed limit when ticketed.

    An automobile insurance firm wants to find the average amount per claim for autobody repairs. Its summary records combine amounts for body repair with all other amounts, so a sample of individaul claims must be taken. A 95% confidence interval with a width no greater than $50 is wanted. A “horseback guess” says that the standard deviatino is about $400. How large a sample is need?

    Please hlep me if you can

    It says they need for me to provide up-to-date information, to be certain that the premium charged on my automobile insurance policy is correct. Is that all they really want it for or what?

    Why not have companies make the decision on which homeowners, automobile, life insurance their employees can buy, and scramble for coverage for everything when they lose, or change jobs?
    Wait, it’s NOT so great? Why do people seem to want to keep it the way it is? Could it be something political?
    Ah, yes, Out2lunch, everyone is free to spend 2 or 3 times as much on health insurance outside the group. Makes a lot of economic sense if you have $$$$.

    I just got backed into today. This is my first accident i have ever got into. I was at work and someone came and got me to let me know someone backed into me. The bumper is completely messed up and the left blinker is smashed. On their insurance card it says OLD AMERICAN COUNTY MUTUAL and UNITED AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE SERVICES. I don’t know who to contact.
    If i contact my insurance wouldn’t my insurance go up?

    We are planning on being near the Mexican border and possibly driving into Mexico. What are the requirements for automobile insurance if I decide to drive into Mexico? Any other advice? I know, don’t drink the water, Montezumas Revenge. Thanks for your answers.

    Technically, you don’t have to own a car, but for most families, not having a car is not a practical alternative in modern society. The distinction is purely academic for most families. I don’t think there are many people who choose not to own a car simply because they have a philosophical objection to automobile insurance. I suggest that the whole argument that the new requirement for carrying health insurance is a novel requirement because the government has never before required people to purchase any specific thing is a red herring.

    I’m limited to these topics: automobile, insurance, housing and stock.
    I have to pick one of them, then I have to ask a QUESTION. And of course, my whole research will revolve around that question.(like “stock market before and after recession?” etc.)
    I’d rather not pick automolie. But still, pick any of these topics and tell me what my question on that topic should be.

    I am a Canadian holding a Canadian driver licence for over 20 years. I am planning to stay in Los Angeles, California for 6 months within a calender year in the coming 5 years. Can I buy a car and drive it with my Canadian driver licence? Can I get a automobile insurance in California? Thank you in advance for your help.

    They make you buy automobile insurance, wear your seat belts, pay taxes, buy building permits, make you shovel your sidewalks, pay for police and fire protection, pay up keep of parks, make you drive the speed limit or they fine you, make you buy a license plate.

    They sent me an EOB but also said:

    1 – Please send a statement from your automobile insurance company showing whether these expenses have been paid or denied. When we receive this information, we will consider this charge.

    Does anyone know why? Thanks.
    This is what confuses me… I wasn’t in any auto accident at all. Just went to the emergency room for an animal bite. They sent me a EOB. I paid the bill for the copay. Then they sent me this one again. Could this just be a mistake then?

    My friend has a vehicle which is being sought after by a recovery service. This car is still being driven, with legal tags. Can a recovery service find out who the car is insured with? Will a automobile insurance co. give out that kind of personal information? Please don’t answer this question unless you know the answer. Thanks
    Please don’t answer this question with a question like my first responder did…thanks

    A tree fell on my grandpas house during a storm. My dad tried to help him remove the tree and fell off the house through the roof and broke his elbow. (He has been out of work and has a surgery.) They had part of the tree attached to a chain that was attached to a truck. The insurance company is saying that because the truck was involved the claim goes though the automobile insurance; but he fell off the house. The home and car insurance is under the same company, should the case really be though the automobile and not the home?
