Car Insurance Shopping on the Internet Takes Patience
It can pay to do some research when you are seeking to buy car insurance, as quotes can vary considerably from company to company. This definitely applies if you are shopping on the Internet, as studies have shown that the quotes offered by various companies on the Web can differ by as much as 80%. Nobody wants to pay more money than necessary for auto coverage, so it makes sense to take some time to try to find the best insurance price for your car.
Here are some tips that may make it easier for you to shop for car insurance on the Web:
Be suspicious of price quotes that are way out of line with the others, especially if they are unusually low. The majority of estimates should fall within a reasonable range; if one quote is only 33% of the others, you are almost certainly looking at a mistake. The low estimate might be due to a mistake on the part of the Website or a mistake on your part. You should respond to any Internet quote that suits you with a phone call.
Don't assume that the quotes are always accurate. You should confirm the estimate with a telephone call. You may find that the quotes offered vary from the price you will have to pay if you contact an agent. For a variety of reasons, many online price quotes are simply not accurate.
Make certain that you are comparing identical things - Estimates could differ from site to site because the parameters of your search could be different. If one company provides a price quote for comprehensive insurance while another is returning a price quote for liability only, the results will fluctuate a lot. Be sure when you complete the online forms that you are seeking estimates for the same coverage. Quotes that vary substantially do not necessarily mean that one company is cheaper; it could mean that you were not careful to compare the same two things.
Spend time at at least ten different sites. You can look at the two or three companies that quoted the most affordable prices for further comparisons. Price quotes can vary so significantly from company to company that it does pay to investigate many different companies. The more information you have, the more educated your decision will be.
Exercise caution to do it right, as some patience when shopping for car insurance could save you quite a bit of cash. Shopping for vehicle coverage is like shopping for any other item; it takes a while to locate the best price.
