(DALLAS-FT. WORTH, TX) Pete Thomson, host of The Consumer Team consumer advocacy radio program, defines the program’s mission as saving time, money and grief for listeners. Recently Consumer Team listeners with good credit have been saving significant amounts of money on homeowners and automobile insurance. Thomson credits Tri-Star Insurance Professionals, a Dallas-Ft. Worth based insurance company for the savings. Tri-Star Insurance is The Consumer Team’s exclusive sponsor for homeowners and auto insurance.
The large savings are now possible as a result of recent rate increases from major insurance companies such as State Farm, Allstate, Progressive, Geico and Farmers. Commenting on the insurance rate increases, Thomson said, “These big companies that offer only their own brand of insurance have been giving consumers big rates increases. In the case of State Farm, their rates have gone up over 30%. Since Tri-Star Insurance Professionals represent a number of different insurance companies, they have the ability to shop rates and get the best deal for the consumer.”
Pete Thomson cited his own personal example regarding the savings that are possible. He added, “About 7 years ago, I went to Tri-Star Insurance Professionals to get a comparison quote on my homeowners and auto insurance. For years, I had been with Allstate for my homeowners and auto insurance. Tri-Star Insurance saved my family $3,000 annually by shopping our insurance with a number of top rated companies. Allstate is obviously a well established company but they couldn’t compete with the rates of other companies that Tri-Star Insurance found us. Now after over 7 years, we’ve saved over $21,000.”
According to Thomson, the best opportunity for savings exists for consumers with good credit and a good claims history. Thomson added, “Anyone who’s worked hard for what they have in life needs to get an insurance check up from Tri-Star Insurance. People with good, solid credit and larger homes are the best customers of the insurance companies. And, based on what we’ve seen, these people are the most likely to be paying too much for their insurance. Tri-Star Insurance Professionals can help you get the best deal on your insurance. For our family, $3,000 a year is huge.”
The Consumer Team talk radio program is broadcast Saturdays from 5-7PM (Central) on 1080 KRLD Radio, Dallas-Ft. Worth. Tri-Star Insurance owner Roger Harkins is a regular contributor to The Consumer Team in the areas of homeowners and auto insurance. Pete Thomson called Harkins an integral part of The Consumer Team. Thomson continued, “Roger Harkins and Tri-Star Insurance have been sponsors of my consumer program since 2008. Roger and his team are a great example of what we strive to bring our listeners: high integrity, great products, fair prices and outstanding customer service. I’m proud to have Roger and Tri-Star with us on The Consumer Team.”
