Are you a victim of high-priced auto insurance? Believe me when I say many consumers are feeling buyer’s remorse and feel like there’s no way out. Multiple insurers compete for your business, so it’s not easy to compare every provider to find the best price available.
Companies don’t list every discount very clearly, so here is a list both well-publicized and the more hidden auto insurance savings. If you’re not getting every credit you qualify for, you are throwing money away.
As a disclaimer on discounts, many deductions do not apply the the whole policy. Some only apply to individual premiums such as liability and collision coverage. Just because you may think you would end up receiving a 100% discount, companies don’t profit that way.

When searching for a good Joliet insurance agent, you need to know there are two different types of agents from which to choose. Joliet agents are either captive or independent (non-captive). Both types can do a good job, but it’s important to know the difference between them because it can impact buying decisions.
These agents have only one company to place business with like Allstate, Farmers Insurance or State Farm. They generally cannot give you multiple price quotes so always compare other rates. They receive extensive training on their products and sales techniques which can be an advantage.
Shown below is a short list of captive agencies in Joliet that can give you price quotes.
Farmers Insurance Group – 121 Springfield Ave – Joliet, IL 60435 – (815) 725-5678
State Farm Insurance – 1050 Essington Rd – Joliet, IL 60435 – (815) 725-5052
American Family Insurance – 1300 N Raynor Ave – Joliet, IL 60435 – (815) 727-9095
Allstate Insurance Co – 221 Springfield Ave – Joliet, IL 60435 – (815) 730-1500
These agents do not work for one specific company so they can insure your vehicles amongst many companies and possibly get better coverage at lower prices. To transfer your coverage to a different company, your agent can switch companies and you don’t have to find a new agent.
When comparison shopping, it’s recommended you include multiple independent agents to get the best comparison.
