Picking an insurance agency shouldn’t rely on just the premium amount. Agents should be asked these questions:
- Do you have coverage for a rental car if your vehicle is in the repair shop?
- Will their companies depreciate repairs to your car based on the mileage?
- Is vehicle damage repaired with OEM or aftermarket parts?
- Do they have adequate Errors and Ommissions coverage? This protects you if they make a mistake.
- How much will you save each year by using a higher deductible?
Once you have received good answers as well as a affordable price, chances are good that you have found a car insurance agent that will insure your vehicles.
Purchasing car insurance direct online is an option
Professional insurance agents can be invaluable at times, but you can also find affordable California auto insurance directly from online companies. Some companies like State Farm and Allstate that sell primarily through agents also let you buy direct online, and that can save time to possibly find a better rate.
If you’re apprehensive about selecting your own policy coverages when buying online, that is normal but is not a big issue. Auto insurance companies give you access to trained agents to answer any questions you may have.
Do online companies provide lower prices? Many people swear by it, but it’s difficult to answer because of the number of factors that impact your rate calculation. You may think that buying directly from the company saves the cost of an agent commission. But truthfully, marketing their products costs a lot of money and that impacts the rates consumers pay.
The only way to determine if prices are better online or from an agent is comparing rate quotes from both. You could possible even receive different price quotes using an online quote and an agent quote from the SAME company.

One last thing about your coverage
As you restructure your insurance plan, it’s a bad idea to sacrifice coverage to reduce premiums. There are too many instances where drivers have reduced liability limits or collision coverage and learned later that their decision to reduce coverage ended up costing them more. The aim is to get the best coverage possible at a price you can afford.
Consumers switch companies for a number of reasons such as delays in paying claims, lack of trust in their agent, policy non-renewal or high rates after DUI convictions. Regardless of your reason for switching companies, finding a great new company can be easy and end up saving you some money.
