Hi, my name is Johnathan!

I work here at eDriving, DriversEd.com’s parent company, and lately we’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about insurance. It’s a natural fit for us, because our goal is always to keep you safe and informed, and if we can help you save some money along the way, that’s great, too! Now, if you’re lucky—and safe!— you’ll never need to use your insurance, but you do have to have it, and we’ve recently discovered a great tool that compares insurance policy quotes so you can see if you’re in a position to save some money.

Answer Financial free car insurance quote tool.

Getting started (for free) at Answer Financial.



Using this tool is simple. It begins by asking your zip code and whether or not you are currently insured. I do currently have insurance, so I chose that, entered my zip code, and began the process. The next thing I saw was four tabs: Vehicles, Drivers, Insurance, and Quotes. The information they asked for was pretty basic, but I definitely recommend having a copy of your current insurance policy with you when you’re filling out that section.

Less than half a cup of coffee later, I found out that I was eligible for a policy that will save me over $50.00 a month. The entire process took me all of 10 minutes and I’ll be saving $600 a year. So, is Answer Financial worth the time? It definitely was for me!

We crunched the numbers—and found some savings!

There’s another way to save on car insurance that’s just for California residents. California’s Low Cost Insurance Program helps make sure low-income drivers can still carry the insurance they need to be driving legally. If you’re interested, check here to see if you qualify for the program.

I went to the site to check it out, and found that a two-member household that makes a maximum of $40,050 a month can qualify for a premium of only $376.00.

You may or may not end up qualifying for this program, but if you’re a California resident it’s certainly worth your time to check. That’s it for me—thanks! Hope you found this information useful. I certainly did, and I’ll have an extra fifty bucks in my pocket this month to prove it!

    Thanks for great post.
    As an agent in a business brokerage firm, we get the opportunity to see all kinds of businesses, big, small, good, bad, profitable, and those that are not. We also see businesses where the owner has worked hard with his/her team to manage the tax burden. This can be a double-edged sword for small businesses.
    If a business owner and his/her accountant do a good job (skelbimai) of identifying expenses and managing deductions, a profitable business that provides the owner with a livable wage can end up looking like it is not very profitable to those on the outside. This can impact the marketability of a business when it is time to sell for example at popular website in Lithuania https://labaigerai.lt/skelbimai/transportas/lengvieji-automobiliai/ .
    If a business owner is considering an attempt to sell at any time in the future, he/she should make the business look as profitable as possible. This profitability needs to be apparent over the course of the most recent three-year period. Most banks and brokers look at a business’ tax forms or book income to determine a business’ value.
    It seems a little counter intuitive to think that the best time to sell a business is when the business is doing well. Owners think that times are good and I am making money, why would I sell? You sell at the top because businesses that show a downward trend and aren’t making money don’t sell. Since most businesses experience ups and downs, owners need to anticipate this reality when contemplating a transition.
