Save Money Moving Abroad

International relocation is expensive. However, there are ways to mitigate your costs by making calculated decisions about how to transfer assets from one country to another with the lowest fees, commissions and inconvenience.

Progressive HomeQuote Explorer Review

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of HomeQuote Explorer.

As you look for ways to slash your expenses, insurance may not always come to mind.  Some insurance companies are counting on you to buy your insurance and then forget all about it.  Rates creep up, and without you knowing it, you’re paying much more than you need to. Protecting your assets doesn’t have to be expensive

Many financial experts recommend shopping around for your home and auto insurance every two or three years.  This gives you enough history with one company that you won’t be “dinged” when you move to the next, while allowing you to determine if there is a better rate and coverage option for you. But shopping around for that insurance can be a pain—especially when you have to call multiple companies to get quotes.

Progressive Insurance has made it easier than ever to compare rates with their new HomeQuote Explorer. This innovative new experience allows you to plug in your information in one place, and receive quotes for rates and coverages from multiple insurance companies.  From there, you can choose which fits your budget the best.

Owning a car is expensive, but necessary for most of us.

With good planning and regular attention, you should be able to save money on your car at every stage in its life.

When You Buy

The first opportunity to save money on your car is right when you buy it. Buy a car that is a great deal, whether it comes from a dealership, a private seller, or some other source.

If you can save thousands right out of the gate, you have already cut down dramatically the lifetime cost of your vehicle, and you haven’t even driven it yet!

4 Benefits Of Invoice Factoring

by Sean Bryant on August 2, 2017

Invoice Factoring

Invoice factoring has gained significant popularity as a means of financing a growing transportation carrier or freight company. Many of these companies’ customers pay their freight bills slowly, sometimes taking up to three months to pay an outstanding invoice. Most small owner-operators are not financially prepared to manage this payment period, and it can prove problematic for even the largest freight enterprise. Below, we’ll describe invoice factoring — or freight bill factoring — and the 4 major benefits it brings to companies of any size.

Benefit #1: Improve Your Cash Flow

The major benefit of factoring freight bills and the primary reason why companies use it is that it improves your cash flow. Instead of waiting 30, 60 or even 90 days for customers to pay an outstanding invoice, you receive an immediate payment from the factoring company. The factor will then focus on collecting the payment from your customer —so you don’t have to. This accelerated payment system has a dramatic effect on your cash flow. It enables you to manage short-term expenses and provides you access to the working capital needed to take on growth opportunities and make long-term investments for your business.
