I just purchased a new mini van and I wanted to do some comparison shopping for my insurance. I love the fact that I can do this online at my convenience without feeling pressured. I went online and entered some basic information to get started.
I simply entered the vehicle year, model, and driver's information. If you want you can enter your social security number but it isn't required to get a quote. I chose not to do that. I finished answering all the questions and within 6 minutes I had quotes from 4 different companies, including my current insurance company. They have different coverage categories that I could choose from. A Basic, Economy, Suggested and a Custom category all with charges broken down for each item covered. If you sign up online you will be eligible for a $50 discount on the six month advance payment that is quoted! How cool is that?!
This made my decision easier with everything all on one place. If you are looking to do some comparison shopping for car insurance, then this is the place to go. Highly recommended and great rates!
