Best Insurance Quotes - Over the Phone or Online

Jul 12, 2008
The best insurance quotes may be difficult to find. The advertising insurance companies do on television may lead you to think otherwise. In all honesty the only way to get the best insurance quotes is to do your research and shop around.

Some people believe doing there research is to call three insurance companies in there area and see who offers the best insurance quote. For some this would be sufficient but you need to look more closely.

Every insurance company has created there own unique rating system to determine there rates. One company might offer the best rate compared to others for people with bad driving records. Another company may have the best rate for people with good driving records. This has happened over time as companies try to secure there own niche in the insurance market place.

It becomes your responsibility to figure out which niche you fit into and then find the company that will offer you the best insurance quote. To do this some people start making phone calls to insurance companies they find in the telephone book or online. Others visit sites online like Progressive. There also people that will contact a local independent agent that represents more than one company. Let's look more closely at all three.

Telephone book shoppers will usually select 2 to 3 companies they are familiar with and get quotes from them. This is okay but it is time consuming so that is usually as far as that type of shopper will go. They may receive a little discount and stop because that justifies the time they put in.

People that go to sites like Progressive will get multiple quotes back but they are rarely accurate except for the Progressive quote. So when they go to purchase the policy the price suddenly changes and they are back to square one.

People who decided to go to an independent agent are using there time a little more wisely. They give there info once and the agent will check the companies they partner with to get you quotes. The consumer will also be able to ask questions and get advice. The only thing the presents a problem here is that the agents only represents a handful of companies.

The best option to get the best insurance quotes is to use a site like http://www.quotematcher.com that will connect you with independent agents and multiple companies so you get a broad range of quotes. You will also still be able to ask questions from either the provider or agent once you choose the best quote for you. Remember the best insurance quote isn't always the cheapest, compare coverage and price and purchase the policy that fits all your needs the best.
