How to Find the Best Auto Insurance Companies With the Best Rates

Best Auto Insurance Companies

There are a lot of auto insurance companies who claim to be the biggest, the best, the cheapest, the friendliest , and on and on. But what you really want to know is how a particular company will treat you when it comes to paying a claim? Will you be paid the full amount of the claim? Will you be paid on time? Will you be paid at all?

Here's how to find out:

1. Every state has a department of insurance, and most departments maintain websites that include a consumer complaint department. Here you can find out how many claims have been filed against a company and compare them to other companies.

If your state's insurance department doesn't have a website, you can go to California's website - www.insurance.ca.gov - click on "Consumers," then "Studies and Reports," and "Consumer Complaint Study" to see the numbers of justified complaints consumers have filed against a particular company.

2. Go to Epinions.com to find out what a company's customers have to say about them. Here you'll find ratings and reviews from real customers who've had dealings with insurance companies and you can get the inside scoop on how they handle their claims.

Best Auto Insurance Rates

The difference in insurance rates between insurance companies is amazing. Company "A" may charge you $2,000 for a policy, while company "B" will charge you $1,100 for the same policy. That's a $900 difference!

The best way to find the best rates is to go to an online insurance comparison website. Here you'll be able to get rates from a number of companies by filling out a simple questionnaire (see links below).

It only takes a few minutes and you get quotes from well-known, A-rated companies, not poorly rated companies you've never heard of.

During the questioning process you can tailor your car insurance policy to fit your needs, and get all the discounts you're entitled to. For tips on how to get the maximum amount of discounts on auto insurance click on the link below then go to the "Articles" section.
