Q: Where should I start when trying to find car insurance?
Apr 30, 2021

I just found out my dad doesn't have insurance on his car or my brother's financed car. I've never purchased insurance before, so I'm not sure where to start. I looked online and a lot of carriers want my dad's personal info. I wasn't sure if it was safe and I want to find the cheapest way to get the cars insured.

“It’s standard for insurance companies to ask for personal information like your name, address, date of birth, and the vehicles you need coverage for. It’s completely safe for you to provide them with this information.

Insurance companies take many things into consideration, including personal information, when determining a rate for someone.

The cost of insurance also depends on the type of coverage needed. If a vehicle is financed, it usually requires collision coverage and comprehensive coverage. This is more expensive than having only liability insurance.

If you need to find cheap car insurance, you’ll want to reach out to a few different carriers and see what rates they can offer. They can also help you adjust coverages to ensure you have a rate you can afford with the coverage you require. “

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!
