Save A Bundle

What gets us excited at Eastway? We get excited when we can save people money. In fact, we go out of our way to help people save money. When you come to us for a quote, we don’t charge anything to help you find the best rate and coverage. Every one of our Auto and Home policyholders saved money by working with us.

How easy is it to save money? Saving money is just as easy as getting a new quote. A quote starts with basic information and there are also a lot of questions to answer. If you are not getting asked a lot of questions, there’s a good chance you don’t have the right price or suitable coverage. It’s always a good idea to get a quote every year before your premium renews so you can make sure your coverage fits your needs.

What information should you have ready for a quote? The most important information is your Driver’s License (Name, Address, Date of Birth), email address, phone number, vehicle information number (VIN#), and any driving history that may affect your quote.

What about bundling? Bundling is a catchphrase word that you’ll hear it a lot in advertisements. I heard one on my way into my work this morning and it’s not a bad thing. It requires having more than one policy, such as your Auto and Home insurance, ‘bundled’ together in one package. It also means you are going to save money. With just one policy you will receive a discount that you would not otherwise be eligible for. The savings could be hundreds of dollars to a thousand dollars or more. More? Absolutely. It depends on your specific coverage. If your policies are not bundled together currently, or they are with different insurance companies, you could save a bundle!

Auto and Home Insurance is going up nationally and especially in New York State. If you have a lapse in auto insurance coverage it will be extremely difficult to secure affordable coverage and in some cases any coverage at all. Most insurance companies require you to have current insurance in place before switching to another carrier. If you do not currently have insurance, you will be denied by most companies.

How did this happen? There are a lot of answers, but the main reason is cost effectiveness. Insurance companies lose money from bad risks and the less bad risks they insure – the more profitable they are. You will be seen as a bad risk if you do not currently have insurance coverage for the last year or two. Some insurance carriers will charge a higher premium if your coverage was cancelled or lapsed. That is if they can underwrite you at all.

If you get a cancellation notice from your insurance company, Do Not Ignore this Letter!!! Your best option is to try to keep your existing coverage. Contact them and ask if you can stay by...

What Does Joe Namath Know About Your Benefits?

If You Guessed ‘nothing’ then you are correct! Insurance is confusing enough without former athletes and stars advising us about our benefits. Regardless of what type of insurance you have - the television commercials always promote the slightest possibilities to the widest audience. A call center operator cannot appreciate your personal needs after spending minutes on the phone with you.

Eastway Insurance Agency has been an Independent, Family Owned, Local Agency since 1983. We do not advertise on television or in the newspaper and most of our clients are referrals. We do not charge to review your insurance and we do not receive a commission for advising you. It costs you nothing to review your coverage with us and you could potentially save money with the knowledge you gain. Everyone is different and every plan does not fit everybody. Let’s talk about what works for you!

Eastway Insurance Agency, Inc.

What makes us unique is simply being honest. We approach each client, situation, question, problem, issue and each new day with complete honesty. We sit down with people to go over their needs, situation and their issues. We answer their questions in a relaxed atmosphere where the pressure to buy is replaced with the opportunity to learn. This is our niche and why we have been in business for over thirty years: as time goes on just being honest is becoming rare.

Most know that nothing is free and if it says it's free there is a cost somewhere along the line. Some people like to put a spin on things to make them sound better. Some companies offer free gifts to ‘sign up’ with them. True Personal Service is the only free gift our Agents offer.

Our Agents can come and visit you for free and provide you an opportunity to voice your thoughts and ask questions. The only cost is if you decide to purchase a policy and the cost of that policy will not change because you purchased it through us. The only thing that does change is this: if and when you have a question,...
