With 174,000 residents in the metro area, Greenville is the Tidewater and Coastal Plain’s entertainment and educational hub. There is a growing number of young professionals flocking to the city as well, which has affected local insurance rates in a number of ways. First, the higher number of residents with bachelor’s degrees means many residents will qualify for the highly-educated worker discount. Conversely, because so many drivers are young (or even students) the rates go up a bit, since young drivers pose the highest risk to insurance companies. If your rates have been affected by population changes it’s a good idea to compare your premium to the growing number of options for cheap insurance Greenville has to offer.
Quick facts about Greenville:
There were only 119 cars stolen in 2012 (which is the most recent data available from the FBI). This is less than half the rate of the previous few years, which means the rates for full coverage are going down. Especially comprehensive coverage rates, which covers your car for theft or other damage not caused by a collision.
The southeast portion of the city has about double the population density of the rest of the city, so residents there may have longer commutes, and they might also be paying higher rates for coverages like liability or collision.
Even if you don’t have a degree you can get discounts for being a member of a labor union or other professional organization. This is also true for people working in the medical field. It’s worth checking with your agent or your insurance carrier to see what discounts you are eligible for but might not be receiving.
