Gather Information Before You Start

There is plenty of information available to aid in the search of affordable insurance policies, however you will be required to provide some information in order to get the most accurate quotes.  Depending on what type of insurance you are seeking, this information may vary. For auto insurance you will likely need the make and model of your vehicle as well as some personal information.  To get the most accurate health insurance quote, you may be required to answer some basic questions regarding your health.

    As an insurance agent I know first hand that you the insured are not limited to the big brand companies. If you shopped through these websites which usually give your information to an independent agency, the chances you will save more money IS GREAT! The independent agency I work for offers over 20 different auto insurance companies and a little over 30 different home insurance companies. The odds are in your favor to use the internet and discover your options!

    Depending on where you are located, you can have someone actually quote you, your family and advise you on the best type of insurance ie, short term, supplemental, or major medical. You can try these sites to get insurance rates but then you run the risk of having your info farmed out to lead generator companies and having people call you constantly to buy their service. My advice call an agent!
