As part of our series with Roxbury Area Chamber of Commerce, we will hear from four local auto insurance professionals on what TO DO and what NOT TO DO when buying an automobile insurance policy.

Here you go, Roxbury drivers.  Ask the Experts -- Auto Insurance Edition gives you the opportunity to ask four local auto insurance agents specific questions that will help you get the most out of your policy.

  • How much insurance do I need?
  • How do I know if I am paying too much?
  • When should I take the lowest deductibles?  The highest?
  • What does all the fine print mean to me?
  • Should I add my 17 year old son to my policy or does he need his own?

We know you have questions.  So we've assembled a panel of locals to field your questions and give some insight on how to get the most our of your premium and policy.

Please submit your auto insurance questions by 9am on Monday, April 26 to karen.cerreta@roxburylibrary.org and we'll make sure your question makes it into the queue.
