Many businesses and individuals are talking about insurance; unfortunately, the discussion topic is the rising costs. There’s a multitude of reasons why lines of insurance are increasing so rapidly in recent years. Instead of arguing the cause, I want to present ideas on how to deal with the effect. The following are some ideas to help reduce the premium costs for your insurance products.

I present these ideas with the premise that insurance companies don’t believe you’re purchasing a "maintenance policy." Many consumers have viewed their insurance policy like a warranty to handle the little dings, dents, and breakdowns; I can assure you the insurance industry doesn’t see your policy the same way.
