Not many purchases are as confusing (but necessary) as buying insurance coverage. Whether you are in need of auto, homeowners, or life insurance, understanding the rates and coverages is incredibly important. In this modern day of technology, the internet has changed the way we research and purchase items even as traditional as insurance. The days of walking into the only insurance company available in town are over. And more than likely you will not be purchasing all your insurance coverages from one provider.
Free insurance quotes are available not only from national companies but often times even from your local insurance company. Online insurance calculators can be found readily from many of these companies to compare rates from several coverages at a time. Progressive is famous for their ad campaign informing the customer to compare several rates right on their site. Now whether you believe Progressive is telling the truth or not is up to you. More often than not contact information will need to be provided to receive an online quote but it is a small price for the speed and ease of the process
