Seven miles west of downtown Portland, Beaverton is one of the area’s largest suburbs, with a population of over 90,000 (making it Oregon’s 6th-largest city). But it’s certainly not just a suburb. A number of corporations and business have their home in the city, including Nike and Linux. The growing number of tech business have led to the area being referred to as “Silicon Forest.” This has also helped the city grow by attracting large numbers of young professionals. Since 2000, the population has increased by almost 20%. This also means that insurance rates are being adjusted. So if your premiums have increased recently, it’s probably time to look over all the options for cheap insurance Beaverton can offer.
Some information about Beaverton that can help you when you’re shopping:
There were only 110 cars stolen in 2012. While this rate is low for a city of Beaverton’s size, you might still want to consider purchasing comprehensive coverage. If you have an anti-theft device on your car, you can usually get it for a discounted rate.
With the rise in median incomes throughout the city you might start to see more high-value cars on the road. This makes increased liability limits important. Oregon requires higher property damage liability than most states, but $20,000 only stretches so far. Especially if you cause an accident with a luxury car, or cause injury.
Ask your agent if you qualify for one of the growing number of occupational discounts, like the highly-skilled worker or highly-educated worker discounts. You can sometimes get a discount for being a member of a credit union as well.
