How do I get auto insurance quotes?
Go online or go to a physical office to get a variety of insurance quotes.
What information do I need to provide when getting an auto quote?
You will need to provide your full name, address, birthday, drivers license number, social security number, of all household drivers, your vehicle information, year, make, model, and VIN (17 digit combination of letters and numbers that identifies your vehicle) for the vehicles you need to insure. You may also need to provide details about how far you drive in a year and for what purpose, like driving to and from work, or driving your car for business purposes, or maybe driving your vehicle for pleasure purposes only.
Getting a quote online
Getting an online auto insurance quote is impersonal and you may be getting quotes on coverage you don't need or leaving out coverage you do need but it is less time consuming.
Getting a quote in person or on the phone
Going into a physical location for a quote or speaking with someone on the phone will give you a better understanding of auto insurance coverage and determine what combination of insurance coverage is best for you. Speaking to the people who will be taking care of you in the future when you have to make a claim also ensures more accountability. Speaking with a representative will give you the ability to feel out the office staff, i.e. do you like them? Will they really take care of you when you need them the most.
What's the benefit of getting more than one quote?
Getting a variety of insurance quotes will allow you to choose which insurance provider yields the highest combination of the following; ability to provide competent and clearly defined answers to your questions, knowledgeable advice and coverage suggestions, affordable premium, and highest ability to pay your claims.
