How To Get Very Cheap Car Insurance

Finding very cheap car insurance can be difficult if you don't know where to look. Since everyone has to have it, you are constantly bombarded with advertisements and information about it that can leave you confused. Here are a few things that you can do to get the coverage at the price you need.

Internet Only Insurers

There are a few companies out there that only have a website. They do not have agents or "brick-and-mortar" offices that you can go visit. Their overhead is less and they can pass the savings on to you. You simply go online, review the company and then get a quote. You can purchase the insurance policy right online and all of the documentation can be mailed to you. If you have a claim, they use adjusters like a regular insurance company. You simply call a toll free number and tell them you have a claim. They will send someone to assist you or tell you what to do next. Sometimes these insurance companies will be less than the larger brands.

Car Insurance Cooperatives

A car insurance cooperative is something that a lot of people do not even know exists. The idea behind a co-op is that it is run to provide regular people with an option for cheap car insurance. Their objective is not to please shareholders or make a profit. It is simply to give everyone an option for inexpensive car insurance. The idea is that a group of people can get a better deal than a single person. These co-ops are usually confined to a certain geographic area. Therefore, depending on where you live, you may have access to one or you may not. Some of the larger co-ops are nationwide, but they might not be as cheap as the smaller ones. 

These companies do not have many employees or different executives. They have basic positions like accountants and adjusters, but other than that, they do not have a lot of employees. These employees work for a modest salary and probably make less than what other companies might pay. The ultimate goal of everyone is to save the insured some money. 

Shop Around

If you want to stick with traditional insurance companies, you might receive better service and benefits. Therefore, you will need to do a little more work to get the deal that you want. One way to get a better deal is to shop around. Going from one company to the next and getting quotes gives you some ammunition. You simply walk into an agent’s office and talk to them about what they offer. Get them to print you a quote and then go down the street to the next company. Keep comparing quotes until you find one that you like. When you do this you can usually save some money on your car insurance policy.
