Shopping for an auto-policy can easily make its way to the bottom of your list. Save time and shop smarter using these 4 tips & tricks:
1. The Internet Isn’t The Only Way
Online quoting systems can give you a basic idea of what you can expect to pay with each company, but they don’t usually gather all of the necessary information from you to provide the most accurate quote. Start with internet quotes, but be prepared to dig a little deeper.
2. Know Your Coverage
Spend some time learning about your coverage and what you actually need. Chatting with an agent is a great way to determine this. Armed with the right coverage levels, you won’t waste time on quotes that aren’t right for you.
3. Get Quotes In Writing
Rather than simply writing down a premium number over the phone, ask to have the breakdown of the coverage and rates emailed or faxed to you so that you can look them over in detail. When you have several quotes in writing it’s easier to spot discrepancies between the quotes.
4. Check Company Reputations
The internet is a great source for consumer opinions and reports, and can help you to find out which companies are known for great customer service, and which fall short. It’s also good to know which companies have a reputation for settling their claims quickly and to the satisfaction of their customers.
