When shopping for car insurance, picking a good Illinois insurance agent is harder than just using the same insurance agent as your neighbor. You need a professional licensed agent, and also want to find affordable rates.
Having so many car insurance companies to choose from, it is very difficult to locate the right company.

- Do they have any clout with companies to ensure a fair claim settlement?
- Are glass claims handled on-site or do you have to take your vehicle to a repair shop?
- Do they review policy coverages at every renewal?
- Can they provide you with a list of referrals?

Are online companies an option?
Car insurance agents are indespensible for some people, but Illinois drivers can also buy from companies direct over the internet. Even companies, such as Farmers Insurance and State Farm, who have local agents in Berwyn also give you the option to buy direct online, so keep that in mind.
If you’re worried about having to choose coverages yourself when buying car insurance direct, don’t sweat it. Car insurance companies all have client service departments that you can contact for information.
Does it save money buying online? That is a tough question to answer because of the number of factors which can raise or lower premium rates. Some people think that a customer who purchases direcly from an online company saves money because there is no commission. For the majority of companies, however, getting their brand in front of customers is expensive and this tends to eat up any savings.

Better coverage you can count on
Cheap car insurance can be found on the web and also from your neighborhood Berwyn agents, so you should compare both to have the best rate selection. Some car insurance companies may not provide online quoting and these regional insurance providers work with independent agents.
As you go through the steps to switch your coverage, it’s very important that you do not skimp on critical coverages to save a buck or two. There are a lot of situations where someone dropped full coverage and learned later they didn’t purchase enough coverage. Your focus should be to get the best coverage possible at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.
