In our previous post, we discussed with you the importance of choosing the best and most appropriate car insurance provider. We tackled the problems that may come up when swimming in a sea of quotes, and offered some poignant tips on how to wade the waters successfully. But this is only half of the process. You've called the insurance quote providers to task, but now it's time for you to ready yourself as someone an insurance provider would want to create a policy for.
Owning a car is getting more and more expensive with higher gas prices.
It sure doesn't help when your car insurance starts going up as well.

I checked in with Pam Oakes, a fourth-generation ASE-Certified automotive technician, founder of Pam's Motor City Automotive in Fort Myers, Fla., and author of "Car Care for the Clueless: Successful Used Car Buying 101." Oakes is shopping for car insurance and asking the same question we all are, "Why did my insurance go up again?" she says.
