Nothing in your car insurance policy in Phoenix, AZ is going to jump out at you and tell you how to make those premiums go down.
But something that does jump out at you are those fluorescent flyers you've probably seen at your job-Rideshare Wanted.
Have you ever considered replying to one of those flyers? It may seem like an inconvenience to ride with someone else to work.
After all, everyone knows that getting a little me time in the car is one of the pleasures of driving-listening to your own music, having time to think, sipping your coffee and trying to wake up for work.
Would you be willing to give a little bit of that up, though, if you knew it could save you a considerable amount of money on gas, car insurance, and car repairs? With gas prices so unpredictable in Phoenix, AZ, many people are finding that rideshare can save them cash because of using less gas.
It also saves wear and tear on your car, allowing you to avoid doing costly repairs and maintenance on your vehicle so often.
In the meantime, rideshare can offer you the chance for valuable networking with coworkers.
At a time when jobs are scarce, the more contacts you make within your organization now the better off you can be later on.
What if something happens and your car needs to be in the shop? Now you already know someone who can give you a ride, someone you are familiar enough with to ask at the last minute.
What if you're sick one day but need to get something to the office? Now your new friend could help you out.
In Phoenix, Arizona many people choose to live in quiet, newer housing developments that are located in the beautiful desert areas on the outer edges of town.
This is completely understandable given the current housing market, where houses in these outlying areas have become even more affordable than ever and a family can truly live in luxury at a low price.
However, the drive to work from so far away can cause stress on both your mind and your pocketbook.
Even if you don't live extremely far away from work, traffic during rush hour can still cause a person to waste gas and put "city miles" on the car-lots of stop and go, causing unnecessary wear and tear.
Did you know that in addition to all the above reasons people in Phoenix, Arizona are trying to share rides to work, you can also save money on your car insurance? Less miles driven per year often means lower rates.

Next time you are at work, why not create your own flyer.
Instead of typing the words, "Rideshare Needed", why not try "Who wants to save some money with me?"
