Northside Insurance Agency is proud to provide its customers with a new way to save on their car insurance premiums. Northside Insurance Agency is certified to offer Snapshot, an optional discount program from Progressive that helps safer drivers earn the savings they deserve.
With Snapshot, customers finally have the choice to pay for car insurance based on real-time driving behavior , without paying for others' “bad driving habits.” People who drive less, during safer times of the day and exhibit minimal sudden stops may save on their auto insurance.
Driving data has proven to be the most powerful way to determine what customers should be paying for insurance. It's a better predictor of who will have an accident in the future than age, gender and other factors customers can't change or control, but that are commonly used to determine the cost of auto insurance. Snapshot uses driving behavior to determine a discount percentage, which mans changes in behavior can result in safer drivers and extyra savings.
Powering this program is the Snapshot device itself, which easily plugs into the onboard diagnostic port. The device's sleek design houses the latest advances in telematics and mobile technology, enabling the customer to automatically and wirelessly share their driving patterns with Progressive. The device doesn't use GPS technology so Progressive does not know the location or speed of the vehicle.
After 30 days, the customer can log in to their policy or check with their agent to see how much of an initial discount they're earning and what changes they can make to their driving habits to save even more. At the end of the policy term, typically six months, the customer returns the device to Progressive, and their ongoing discount is set.
Anyone can try Snapshot even if you're with another insurance company. It's free to try and a great way to see if your safe driving could earn you a discount of 0 - 30%.
Snapshot is a good fit for people who don't driver frequently and during safer times of the day. On average those who earn a discount save around $150 per year. Since the program launched in 2008, drivers have saved more than $125 million with Snapshot. Contact Northside Insurance Agency at (817) 626-3100 today to see if you could start saving.
