Finding good car insurance in Lehi can be challenging since there are a lot of options and finding the best Utah auto insurance agent is not as easy as just picking up the phone. You require a great agent that can assess your needs, and also want to find the best possible rates.
Many insurance agencies compete for your insurance dollar, and because of this it can be hard to compare auto insurance agents to get the best rates possible.
Your local neighborhood insurance agent
Insurance agents can help determine the best coverages and give you peace of mind. One of the great benefits of price shopping on the web is you may find lower rates but still work with a licensed agent.
To help locate an agent, after submitting this form (opens in new window), your insurance data gets sent to participating agents in Lehi who will give you bids for your coverage. There is no reason to visit any agencies since price quotes are sent straight to your inbox. Now that’s easy! Get lower rates and work with a local agent.
Selecting an insurance agent needs to be determined by more than just a cheap price. Ask your prospective agent these questions:
- Are there any discounts that you might be missing?
- What will you get paid if your car is a total loss? How is that amount determined?
- Do they feel the quoted coverages are adequate?
- How long have they worked with personal auto insurance coverage?
- How often do they review policy coverages?

Online companies can help you save
Insurance agencies are a valuable resource, but Utah consumers also have the option to buy from companies direct over the internet. Some car insurance companies who sell through the agent channel also allow you to quote and buy online, and online price comparisons are easy if finding the best price is important.
If you’re worried about not receiving proper advice when shopping online, this really isn’t an issue. Online companies provide customer service for answering any questions you have. Most companies also provide a frequently asked questions page that you can use before buying.
Does buying online save money? It’s hard to say exactly because of the number of factors that influence how your policy is priced. Common logic is that going direct saves the cost of an agent commission. But in most cases, advertising budgets are huge and that impacts the rates consumers pay.
The best approach to find out if the cheapest policy comes from an agent or online is to make apples-to-apples comparisons of both. It’s possible to get different rates from online quotes as they do from local agents from the exact same provider. But it’s impossible to know if the lower rates are from agents or online without quoting coverages using both methods.
More quotes mean more savings
People switch companies for a variety of reasons including an unsatisfactory settlement offer, poor customer service, questionable increases in premium and delays in paying claims. Regardless of your reason, finding a new company can be pretty painless.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s very important that you do not buy less coverage just to save a little money. In too many instances, drivers have reduced liability limits or collision coverage to discover at claim time they didn’t have enough coverage. The proper strategy is to find the BEST coverage at an affordable rate while still protecting your assets.
