Congratulations, ladies! If you are reading this, you are either already enrolled and attending classes at college, or you’re taking special steps to make sure you’re completely prepared when the day does come for you to say goodbye to Mom and Dad and head off to become a student of higher learning!
Congratulate yourself beyond your college enrollment – congratulate yourself for realizing now that you’re a lady student, it’s time to ease up on the parents a bit and start taking responsibility for yourself. An important responsibility is making sure you have adequate car insurance. Of course, aside from having the best car insurance coverage, you also want the best car insurance price, right? Right!
So, let’s take the following tips into consideration to help lady students get, and keep, cheap car insurance:
Install a safety alarm before you take off. Maybe your dad can do this for you, your uncle who owns an auto repair shop, or maybe you’d rather do it yourself.
Park your car in a well-lit area. If you’re living in a dormitory, well-lit parking isn’t always available, depending on the size of the parking lot and the lights provided. In any event, try to park where there is the most light. Your new car alarm system should pick up the slack.
Always remember to lock your doors before leaving your car. College keeps you busy, there’s no doubt about it. It also aids you in becoming forgetful. Don’t get so busy and stressed that you forget to protect your belongings – especially belongings as expensive and important as your car!
Never leave valuable items in your car. Cell phones, iPods, mp3 players, the covers of your CD player – never leave them in your car, even if you do keep it locked. This also includes any loose money and jewelry, your school books (those things are expensive, you know), and luggage from your trip home last weekend.
