No two insurance quotes are the same - be careful not to get mislead!
First, be prepared to offer all the information the company will need to evaluate your specific insurance coverage. They will need contact information and will be looking at your claims history, credit score and other items they use to determine a price to quote you. Quotes really are designed specifically for you and may not match your neighbor, family or friend from work.
You will be asked what kind of coverage you want and there are some different options like liability only, uninsured motorist coverage, and other various coverage options. Online is a little simpler because you will see the options on the screen, but it's also a little impersonal since you can't answer questions directly. However, most online insurance companies do offer to talk to you on the phone to answer any questions you might have and even complete the policy purchase if you're not comfortable providing your billing information over the internet.
This is where you will really break from everyone else - not only will you probably get slightly different coverage from others, but you'll probably pick a different deductible based on your financial situation and you own credit history and accident history will affect the price of your quoted coverage. This is why you may want to shop around, not all insurance quotes are the same and you could get a better deal somewhere else.
Look at the Small Print
Look for little things like towing coverage and 24-hour claims service. These little extras may not seem that important until you're stranded in the middle of an iced over interstate at midnight after sliding into another car. Suddenly, that small print is very important! If there is anything you have a question about on a quote, do not hesitate to ask about it. In a price conscious world, taking out extras to lower the price is standard, but you might really need those extras.
