Get auto insurance quotes online.

Getting a car insurance quote online is easy, and best of all, it's free. If you do decide to take the online quote comparison route, remember that the more information you're able to provide, the better off you'll be. Expect to answer questions about your age, where you live, your driving record, the type of car you own (including any special features, like anti-lock brakes and power windows), security and anti-theft features, and even your credit history. The more details you can provide, the more accurate the quote will be. Once you've decided on an insurer, look for online tools that will give you the location of the nearest company agent.

Call the insurance company.

Not everyone is comfortable filling out forms online. And, not everyone is comfortable using the Internet as the sole source of communication for shopping for something as important as auto insurance. There are still many people in the world who enjoy being able to talk to a real, living, breathing person because it gives them the opportunity to ask questions as they arise and get immediate answers. That's not always possible with an online comparison tool.

Get face time with local insurance agents.

Just because technology has made the world a smaller place doesn't mean you can't go about your search for car insurance in a more traditional manner. If you're looking for auto insurance or are considering switching insurers, break out the trusty phone book and get a few local insurance agents on the horn. Prefer face-to-face interaction? You may find that many local auto insurance agents have an open-door policy allowing you to swing by and hash out the details in person.

Get it straight from the horse's mouth.

You may discover that your best source of information about auto insurance providers is the very people living around you. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Ask them who their insurers are, and while you're at it, ask them about their experience with their insurance company. Find out which insurance company they've loved the most and which insurance company they've loved the least. Satisfied customers love to share their stories just as much as dissatisfied customers, and you're likely to get an earful if you ask for it. Who knows? Chatting about car insurance with your neighbor might even clue you in to an insurance provider you never even knew existed.

Whether you choose to do so by calling or visiting an insurance agent, visiting an insurance company's website or getting feedback from people you know, there are many options when shopping for a car insurance policy. Start shopping now on Allstate's Car Insurance page.
