When Andile got a new job offer in Parktown, a suburb of Johannesburg, she knew she had to leave Mbombela permanently.
Andile was overjoyed with her new position and salary, but doing some research, she quickly realised that living expenses were considerably higher in the city than in the country.
She would be unable to justify accepting the new position if she was unable to significantly lower her existing expenses.
With a monthly budget of R24,000 at the time, she knew she had to make some serious cuts if she wanted to do more than just make it in the city.
Andile explained, "If I could reduce my car insurance and possibly my cell phone expenses, I knew I would be able to achieve my goal."
My aunt suggested I contact OneSure, so I did.
At first, I didn't have high hopes because I figured I already had a good deal with my insurance company and that they would probably increase my excess to discount my premium and only save me 10% at most.
"Three different insurance companies were able to offer a lower monthly premium than I was paying on my current car insurance," notes Andile. In fact, the savings on all three quotes exceeded my expectations, surprising even my aunt, who referred me in the first place.
The effect of saving this much money offers me the opportunity to relocate to an even better security estate and this reduced my insurance quote even further after updating my new address.
A closer look. After analysing numerous risk criteria and analytical data, Insure Bot eliminated 16 of the 19 insurance companies. Insure Bot showed that we could offer Andile quotes from three different insurance companies that fit her profile. Two of the quotes had lower premiums, and the third had the same premium but more benefits than what she was receiving at the time.
The monthly savings for Andile's insurance were at a discount of 24% from her previous insurer. After updating her insurance quotes with the new estate address, we managed to save her even more on her content and car insurance, decreasing them by an additional 2%.
We were able to get her previous basic excess of R4500 down to R1500, as well as add pothole cover, which made a huge difference.
Saving R850 a month gave Andile the opportunity to start the new position, broaden her horizons, and reduce her future financial risk.
