How can you save money on car insurance in Buffalo

Finding the cheapest car insurance doesn’t begin and end with comparing quotes. In other words, you can’t forget discounts.
Discounts are a great way to save money on your coverage. Here are some to keep an eye out for:
  • Customer loyalty (e.g. bundling, early renewal)
  • Demographic (e.g. good student, senior)
  • Driver affiliations (e.g. military, affinity)
  • Driving history (e.g. accident-free, safe driver)
  • Driver training (e.g. defensive driver course)
  • Equipment-related (e.g. anti-theft, new car)
  • Payment (e.g. auto-pay, paperless)
You could also save money on car insurance by taking a defensive driving course. This might qualify you for a lower rate, on top of making you a better and savvier driver who can properly navigate a driving or traffic hazard.
By analyzing your coverage needs and generating new quotes before every renewal, Jerry can ensure that you stay up-to-date on all the discounts available to you. You could also save money on car insurance by taking a defensive driving course.

Jerry currently shops for car, home, renters, and umbrella insurance.

If you want Jerry to shop at any specific companies, just let him know. You can email the member service team at hi@getjerry.com or call 1-833-445-3779 (M-F 8am-5pm PT).
No. Jerry does not mark up the price. The quotes we send to you are the same as those you’d get if you’d shopped yourself.
Absolutely not. Jerry takes your privacy very seriously. Jerry doesn’t even ask you for your email until you’re ready to switch your insurance to a new company. Jerry does not sell or share your contact information with any external companies. You will not be getting any phone calls or emails. All the communication happens through the mobile app. If you need help, you can request a call from one of our in-house licensed agents, but we don’t call to sell you insurance.
No, you don’t need to wait until you receive a renewal notice from your current provider. You can switch insurance policies anytime. By law, insurance companies must return any unused premium you have already paid for your policy. A few insurance companies may charge a small cancellation fee if you cancel before the end of the policy. Jerry will let you know the cancellation fee before you decide to switch the policy.
Yes, Jerry Insurance Agency (license number 0M34848) is a licensed insurance broker, registered in the state of California. Jerry carries a $1m professional liability policy for your peace of mind.
1. Jerry provides quotes from up to 45 insurance companies. Most online price comparison sites (and your local agent) will only provide quotes from a few insurance companies (usually the top 5 or 6 companies, and a handful of smaller brands) with whom they have contracts. You’re more likely to save money with Jerry because we work with top insurance companies.
2. Jerry’s mobile app makes managing your insurance policy a breeze. You can ask questions, upload documents, request changes, and much more. No more phone calls or emails back and forth.

Jerry will shop for you before your policy renewal date and show you all your options in the app — it’s up to you to decide if you want to change your policy or not. If you ask Jerry to move forward with a quote you like, only then Jerry will do the paperwork to switch your policy.
No. Frequent shopping for car insurance quotes does not have an impact on your credit score or the cost of your insurance. In the state of California, a credit check is not required for getting quotes. In other states, insurance companies may run a credit check but it’s a “soft pull,” or fact check, of your credit, as opposed to a “hard pull,” which typically occurs when you apply for credit. Soft pulls, which are used for comparing car insurance rates, do not affect your credit score or rating, no matter how many quotes are obtained.
