What do I do if I want to switch car insurance companies?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on February 18, 2021

I've had a policy with the same car insurance company for a really long time. Basically ever since I bought my first car. But my rates are going up and I'm starting to wonder if I can get a better deal somewhere else. How do I switch car insurance companies? Is it hard?

If you’re considering switching car insurance companies, the best place to start is by getting quotes from a few different providers. Each insurance company has its own set of underwriting guidelines and rating factors, which is why prices can vary so greatly between companies. Getting multiple quotes will help you determine which company is offering you the best price.

Once you find a company offering you an affordable insurance premium, making a down payment on that policy will issue your new insurance coverage. Once your new policy has been set up, you can cancel your old policy.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
