Staying at home to work can help you to save money on your car coverage.
Any motorists will know that their car insurance rates are determined by a whole host of factors. These factors include the model car you drive, where you live, and your driving history. What many don’t know is that it is also influenced by how much time you spend driving.
The average Los Angeles driver commutes up to 55 minutes each day, just traveling to and from work. This drive not only wears thin on your patience, but it also causes a strain on your car and car insurance premium. Statistically, if you spend more time on the roads, you’re more likely to get into an accident, and therefore, use your coverage.
Luckily, if you don’t have a daily work commute because you work from home, you’re less likely to be involved in an accident, thus lowering your auto insurance rates. Finally, you can enjoy more than just working from your desk in your sweatpants!
Some companies are traditional and believe that working from home is a great excuse for employees to get sidetracked watching TV all day and rush through work last minute. However, more and more organizations are opting for ‘telecommute’ staff to save on office space, bills, overhead, and to obtain happy employees with flexible hours.
Data has recently shown that those who work from home, thus driving less (that’s the important bit), pay at least 8.4 percent less for car insurance than those who have a daily commute to work. Across the nation, many insurers are rewarding their customers who drive less frequently with affordable policies.
