One of the most beautiful places to live in America is Salem, Oregon. Founded in 1842, it became the state capital in 1851. As of 2008, it had a population of 154, 510 and counting. It is believed that the land has been inhabited over 10,000 years and Native Americans originally inhabited Salem.

Salem boasts of museums rich in history, an Opera House and the Willamette river flows through the town. Average temperature is about 52 degrees Fahrenheit.
Although it has public transportation, many people choose to drive their vehicles in normal everyday life. Because of the laws of our nation, it is required that we carry car insurance.

Getting Salem auto insurance quotes is as easy as entering your zip code in the space provided. There will be several things considered before you get a quote. One of those is how often you drive and what kind of car you drive. Sportier cars and high-end cars may have a higher premium then other cars. If you drive your car a lot, it can also affect your quote. Another is who you allow to drive you car. All drivers must be insured and depending on their age and driving record, this will affect your quotes. It may sound silly but if you let someone drive your car that is not personally insured and they get into an accident, it will be up to your insurance company to pay and they may not if your coverage did not include other drivers.
A huge factor in getting Salem car insurance quotes is your driving record. If you have a poor driving record, it can raise your premiums and require you to make a very large down payment. If you keep your record clean for 6 months to a year or more, they may consider lowering the rates but it is also good to do your best to be a good driver as it will reflect on your coverage and pricing. If you allow a teen to drive your car, this will raise your premium as well because of their lack of experience. If you live in a climate with extreme weather conditions, this will also affect you quote. There are so many things to consider that it is very wise to shop around and ask questions.
