To find the best car insurance prices, there are several ways of comparing price quotes from different in Ogden, Utahinsurance companies. The easiest way to find the lowest rates is to perform an online rate comparison. This is very easy and can be done in several different ways.

To get rate quotes you would need to go to every website and enter your information, and that’s why the first method is more popular.

  3. The least recommended method of comparing rate quotes is to waste gas driving to different Ogden agent offices. The internet makes this process obsolete unless you want the professional advice only provided by licensed Ogden agents. However, consumers can compare the best prices online but still have the advice of a local agent and we’ll cover that in a bit.

Whichever method you choose, make sure you use exactly the same coverage information for each price quote. If the quotes have unequal deductibles or liability limits it will be impossible to find the best deal in Ogden. Slightly different coverages may cause a big price difference. It’s important to know that more quotes will enable you to find a lower rate.

These discounts can lower your rates

Companies don’t necessarily list every available discount very clearly, so here is a list both well-publicized and also the lesser-known car insurance savings.

  • Defensive Driver – Taking a course teaching defensive driving skills could cut 5% off your bill if you qualify.
  • Sign Online – A handful of insurance companies will give a small break for buying your policy over the internet.
  • Military Rewards – Having a family member in the military could mean lower rates.
  • Government Employees – Active or retired federal employment can save as much as 8% with select insurance companies.
  • Theft Prevention System – Cars that have factory anti-theft systems are stolen less frequently and therefore earn up to a 10% discount.
  • Payment Method – By paying your policy upfront instead of paying each month you can actually save on your bill.
  • Multiple Cars – Buying insurance for all your vehicles with the same company can get a discount on all vehicles.

A little note about advertised discounts, some credits don’t apply to all coverage premiums. Most cut specific coverage prices like liability, collision or medical payments. So when it seems like you could get a free car insurance policy, you won’t be that lucky.

What types of auto insurance agents are in Ogden?

Captive Insurance Agents

Captive agents write business for a single company and examples are Allstate, AAA, Liberty Mutual and State Farm.

Below is a short list of captive insurance agencies in Ogden that are able to give comparison quotes.

State Farm Insurance – 585 24th St # 107 – Ogden, UT 84401 – (801) 627-6100

Independent Insurance Agents

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, they simply move the coverage in-house without you having to go to a different agency.

What is YOUR best insurance company?

We just presented a lot of ways to get a better price on car insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more you quote, the more likely it is that you will get a better rate. Drivers may discover the lowest rates come from a small local company. Some small companies can often provide lower rates in certain areas as compared to the big name companies such as Progressive and GEICO.

Budget-conscious car insurance can be purchased on the web in addition to many Ogden insurance agents, so compare prices from both in order to have the best chance of saving money. There are still a few companies who do not provide online price quotes and usually these small, regional companies provide coverage only through local independent agents.
