How do you find a good car insurance company?

I want to change my car insurance company. I feel like the last one I had was taking advantage of me. How should I search for a new one?

Answer
If you’re curious about the reputation of a given insurance provider, you can start by checking with your state’s department of insurance. They usually publish data on each of the car insurance companies operating where you live.
You can also check with various other companies that collect data such as:
  • J.D. Power, which publishes an annual report ranking car insurance companies in terms of customer satisfaction and financial stability
  • Your local body shop
If you’re serious about switching car insurance companies, be sure to leave a review with your old provider detailing why you’re leaving and how they can improve in the future.
When you’ve familiarized yourself with a few well-rated providers, it’s time to shop around for quotes and see which ones offer the best rates for your desired coverage level.
