When the car insurance quotes start appearing in your inbox, there’s a temptation to quickly scan through to the headline annual premium rates and leave it at that.
Yet, in a sense, that misses the opportunity to investigate exactly what’s on offer and which quote offers the best value. Let’s quickly review the process and then think about what to do with all the information. The first step to getting your free car insurance quotes is to fill in a form. This collects your personal information and asks you to make choices about the extent of the cover you want. It also asks questions designed to test whether you are entitled to some of the discounts. So the second step when you receive the quotes is to check you actually entered all the information correctly. It would be annoying if the insurers thought you were John Doe from Erie County, Ohio when you actually come from Guernsey County. This is important because you need to be sure you are being given the right claim’s history and the credit score is right. Once you are certain all the personal information has been correctly applied, now come to the cover offered in the free car insurance quotes.
You should never assume the first set of choices is the best.
Since it costs you nothing to get multiple sets of quotes, you could explore how the premium rate changes when you adjust the amount of the deductible, or you test the rate for a pay-as-you-go policy. You might find it saves enough to justify changing the nature of the cover or it does not cost too much to add additional cover for towing and hiring a replacement vehicle. The free car insurance quotes service let’s you explore options.
Finally, never assume the auto insurance companies have given you all the discounts to which you are entitled.
Look very carefully at what has been allowed and then consider your own circumstances. It may be you can make savings because of who you are or what action you take to make your vehicle more difficult to steal. Now you have one or two quotes in the frame for the “big” decision, cast your eye on the website run by your state’s Insurance Commissioner. It’s very unwise to give your business to a insurer that has been the subject of multiple complaints about poor service.
