All the larger car insurance companies give pricing online. Getting quotes doesn’t take a lot of time as you simply enter your coverage information as detailed in the form. Upon sending the form, the company’s rating system makes automated requests for credit information and your driving record and quotes a price based on these factors.

Rhode Island consumers can’t ignore all the ads for car insurance savings from the likes of Allstate, GEICO and Progressive. All the companies make an identical promise that you’ll save big if you switch your coverage to them.
But how can every company make almost identical claims?
All companies have a certain “appetite” for the right customer that is profitable for them. For instance, a preferred risk could possibly be over the age of 40, has no tickets, and has excellent credit. A propective insured who meets those qualifications will get the preferred rates and as a result will probably save quite a bit of money when switching.
Drivers who fall outside this ideal profile will be charged a higher premium which usually ends up with business not being written. The ad wording is “customers that switch” but not “drivers who get quotes” save that kind of money. That’s the way companies can claim big savings.
That is why it is so important to compare many company’s rates. It’s not possible to predict the company that will give you the biggest savings.
Car insurance is not cheap, but you can get discounts to reduce the price significantly. Most are applied when you complete an application, but some must be asked about prior to getting the savings. If you aren’t receiving every discount you deserve, you are paying more than you should be.
It’s important to understand that most credits do not apply to the entire policy premium. Some only apply to individual premiums such as comprehensive or collision. Just because you may think all those discounts means the company will pay you, companies don’t profit that way. Any qualifying discounts will reduce the cost of coverage.

The ultimate goal is to purchase a proper amount of coverage at a price you can afford, not the least amount of coverage.

Regardless of your reason for switching companies, finding a great new company can be easy and end up saving you some money.
