Does looking at car insurance quotes online give you the best rate?

I'm looking into switching car insurance companies and I've requested a few quotes online. I've never switched providers before; is this the best way to find cheap car insurance?

“Requesting car insurance quotes online is typically the fastest and easiest way to find cheaper car insurance.
By looking at quotes online, you can easily customize the coverage you require and see what discounts you qualify for. You will receive a rate based on the information you provide, typically with an option to purchase online as well.
If you’re worried about selecting the correct coverage, most car insurance companies offer online support. You can always call and speak with an agent if you have questions.
You can also work with a car insurance broker. As brokers work for you, they aren’t associated with any one insurance company. They can gather quotes from a variety of carriers for you.
If you want the best of online shopping and using a broker, the Jerry app makes it easy! Jerry will get you affordable quotes from multiple providers, and we’ll even help you switch plans and cancel your old policy!
It’s possible to find cheaper car insurance so you can use your money for more in life. Good luck!”
