King, NC named as one of 30 great small towns with low insurance rates

King, North Carolina was named as being one of 30 Great Affordable Small Towns With Low Insurance Rates in our most recent ranking!

For our list of the 30 affordable small towns with low insurance rates, we began by considering small towns that are affordable and livable, and tend to be places with lower-than-average annual insurance rates. We then referenced sites like Movoto, Livability, and Value Penguin Inc. to analyze statistics about the average premiums paid by residents of various cities and towns around the country.

King, North Carolina was recognized in part because the average rate of only $630 annually for car insurance is 9% lower than the North Carolina average. knows cars can be expensive possessions, and the amount spent on annual auto insurance premiums can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars based on things like the driver’s age, education level, and address. For this reason, it’s smart to consider average insurance costs of a particular town as one decides where to live. We strive to provide clear, credible guidance to help residents find the best hometown for them.
