Philadelphia Has the Third Highest Car Insurance Rates in the Country


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/27/2015 -- According to an automobile insurance report, there are only two cities across the nation with higher car insurance rates than Philadelphia, PA: Detroit and Brooklyn, respectively. In fact, residents of Philadelphia's 19132 ZIP code pay 128% more than Pennsylvania's state average for their car insurance; the state average comes in at $1,210, while Philadelphia residents pay approximately $2,760. The report's calculations were based on the rates from 6 of the nation's largest carriers: Allstate, GEICO, Nationwide, Progressive, Farmers and State Farm. The Bachmann-Zeitlin Insurance Agency requests the chance to lower that rate, when possible, for Philadelphia residents.

The report's averages were calculated for a policy with 100/300/50 limits ($100,000 for a single person's injuries, $300,000 liability for all injuries and $50,000 for property damages due to an accident). The simulated policy also included a $500 deductible on comprehensive and collision coverage, uninsured motorist coverage, and the hypothetical driver had a clean driving record and good credit. While the Bachmann-Zeitlin Insurance Agency provides some of the most affordable car insurance rates in Bucks County and Philadelphia, PA, actual rates will depend on the applicant, their vehicle and their insurance needs.

Pennsylvania state law requires minimum car insurance coverage. Any driver who does not have 15/30/5 policy limits, at the very minimum, is subject to the suspension of their license and vehicle registration privileges for three months. Bachmann-Zeitlin Insurance Agency doesn't want this to happen to any PA resident, whether they just want to fulfill the minimum requirements or the larger limits that mimic the auto insurance report. They recommend that residents in need of car insurance contact them immediately to get a complimentary quote.

The Bachmann-Zeitlin Insurance Agency also provides boat, life, homeowners and renters insurance to Bucks County and Philadelphia, PA residents. Philadelphia residents can visit their website or call them at 267-288-5193 for more information.
