Wilmington is largely a Coast Guard town (with a number of major cruisers stationed in the port), but it also has a growing media presence. One of the biggest television studies in nation (outside of L.A.) is located in the town. The city’s history has colonial routes, and evidence of these roots can be found in a lot of the city’s architecture and historical landmarks. It has a very diverse economy and sees a lot of tourist traffic because of its location on the coast and healthy and active nightlife. The population has been increasing at a rapid pace over the last decade, and crime has risen as a result. Insurance companies take this into account when deciding your premiums, so make sure to shop around! The more options for cheap insurance Wilmington agents can offer, the better your chances of lowering your rates.
Other Wilmington insurance info:
The city has invested heavily in its public transportation infrastructure, as well as its “bike-friendliness.” This gives commuters a lot of options and the less reliant on your car you are, the lower your monthly premiums will be.
Aside from a rise in gang activity, auto theft rates are high as well. There are almost 400 cars stolen in the city each year. When you consider that Wilmington’s population is around 112,000, that’s a pretty high statistic! It has the affect of raising the rates for comprehensive coverage, but you can usually make up for it by installing an alarm (if your car doesn’t already have one).
