slides: Highest Auto Insurance Rates in Central MA

Friday, May 02, 2014

 

Who has the most expensive auto insurance premiums in Central MA?

According to the website ValuePenguin, survey data shows "the average cost of car insurance in Massachusetts is $1,347, from Lunenburg, a town of 10,100 residents, to Boston, a city of 618,000. Annual premiums ranged from $1,015 at the low end to $2,350 at the high end – a variance of 132%."

Of the whole state, ValuePenguin writes, "The cheapest cities in the Bay State tend to have several factors in common. They cluster just outside of Boston within the Metrowest and Merrimack Valley region in Middlesex and Norfolk counties. These locations are generally home to smaller populations (less than 30,000) and have lower population density."

On the other end of the spectrum, "The most expensive cities in Massachusetts tend to be larger and more densely populated cities with higher than average crime rates. For the most part, they’re clustered near the Boston metro area and enveloped between the I-95 / Yankee Division Highway, and the shore," writes ValuePenguin.

ValuePenguin reviewed auto insurance rates in MA for 7 different driver profiles from 35 insurers in the 179 cities with a population over 10,000. The blended cost for each was yielded from the following methodolody:

Included in the study were sample annual premiums from 35 companies, from ACE to Vermont Mutual. Seven kinds of driver situations were represented, including single adults of various years of driving experience, three married couples, and a married couple with a teenaged driver. Rates were pulled for policies covering the minimum liability limits per Massachusetts law up to 100/300/100 for married couples.
