Q: What would be better, re-rating my current policy or switching to a new carrier?
Apr 20, 2021

I've been with my current carrier for five years and pay $500 for six months. I recently got a quote from another carrier that is significantly lower, $300 for six months, and it had higher coverage levels. Should I ask my current carrier to re-rate my policy instead of switching?

“If you’re receiving quotes from other carriers that have higher coverage levels and lower premiums, it may be time to switch your insurance. Having higher bodily injury liability and other coverages will protect you in the event of an accident. Less is not more in the case of car insurance!

You can still reach out to your current company to see what they can offer you. Since you’ve been with them for a longer period of time, they may be able to give you a similar rate.

It also never hurts to comparison shop. Carriers adjust rates often. It’s common to receive a quote from a different carrier that is lower than what you are paying.

You can view car insurance quotes online to see what options are available to you. Once you’ve reviewed your options, you can decide what’s best for you. “

This app is truly amazing and I recommend it to everyone. They were able to save me over $100/yr on car insurance, and I hardly had to do a thing. They got finalized quotes for me in minutes, and I didn't have to call anyone. They also canceled my old policy, and got me on to my new one for me!
