Also consider buying auto insurance direct
Car insurance agents serve a purpose, but you can also buy Florida car insurance from online companies direct. Some specific companies like State Farm and Allstate that sell primarily through agents also give you the option to get quotes and purchase online, so that should be considered to possibly find a better rate.
If you’re worried about not having an agent to talk to when buying car insurance direct, don’t sweat it. Online car insurance companies that allow you to purchase coverage provide options for getting questions answered. Most companies also provide extensive coverage information and 24/7 assistance so buying online is not difficult.
Do online companies have better rates? Many people swear by it, but it’s difficult to answer because of the number of factors that influence the price you pay. You may think that purchasing direct online saves money because there is no commission. But the reality is getting their brand in front of customers is expensive and this tends to eat up any savings.
If the lowest price is important, the best way to know where you can get the lowest rate, either online or from agents, is to compare price quotes from both. You can actually get different rates from the SAME company if you compare an online quote to agent rates.
Additional detailed information can be read at the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation website. Florida drivers can find a variety of consumer forms, read consumer alerts, report car insurance fraud, and learn about specific coverages.
More quotes mean more savings
People change insurance companies for any number of reasons including denial of a claim, policy non-renewal, delays in paying claims and high rates after DUI convictions. Regardless of your reason, finding a great new company can be easy and end up saving you some money.
As you shop your coverage around, it’s very important that you do not reduce needed coverages to save money. There have been many cases where an accident victim reduced collision coverage to discover at claim time that the savings was not a smart move. Your goal should be to purchase plenty of coverage at an affordable rate.
