I was hoping to find a cheap online car insurance quote. I was not sure what type of experience I would have.First, the zip code. Easy enough. It opened up into a screen showing seven top rated insurance companies, all very familiar to me. There was only one that I did not recognize. They gave a nice little wordy commercial, had a logo, and a “go” button.I entered the first one and entered information on both of my vehicles. This should give me a multicar discount, too. According to Experian Automotive, there are 2.28 vehicles in each household. The US of A still loves her automobiles! It asked for your make and model of my car, how many miles I drive it annually, whether I own, lease, or finance it. It also wanted to know if I use my vehicle(s) for commuting, pleasure, or for business. All of these factors help determine the insurance rate that will be applied to my vehicle.I worked through the first company to find they wanted my social security number… screeeeech!! This is a huge red flag for many people….social security number and entering it on the computer. The site has noted next to it a “gold lock” stating Privacy and Security. If you click on it, you will open up a window and get that company’s entire Privacy Commitment. The decision after that is totally up to you. While I find time to read through the Privacy Commitment, I moved onto the next company.I worked through the other companies. I found they each had their own nifty formats. They each asked for the same basic, pertinent information in order to find me the lowest online car insurance quotes. I was pleased with the ease I was able to move around within each “company.” It was important to me to be able to customize the coverage so that the quote matched my current policy and I was truly comparing quote to quote. I was able to save each quote and return to it later. I was able to email the quote to myself. I was able to print a copy instantly. I felt I was sitting in a boardroom with a representative from each company in front of me and I was drilling them with questions.The flexibility within the websites was amazing and I was in control. I could lay all the quotes in front of me and choose the one that works best for me…the cheapest online quote for car insurance. That’s what it was all about. Be a savvy consumer and make sure you enter consistent information into the websites. Once that is done, then companies of distinction will compete over your business to give you the cheapest car insurance quotes online. It was an easy, professional, money-saving, time-saving experience for me. I am glad I did it.
