Today we need to discuss one of the most exciting ways for you to spend your time, shopping for cheap car insurance. I know I don’t need to tell everyone how much fun this can be. Who doesn’t love spending a day or two going through Yellow Pages, making phone calls and talking to insurance agents? Sometimes, you can even get lucky and one or two will want to come over to your house so they can explain, in person, all the fun and exciting features their policies offer. If you are really, really lucky they will even give you an education on life and home policies while they are there. Oh Joy!
OK, I know that was a little over the top but the point is I have never meet anyone who enjoyed shopping for cheap car insurance or any insurance for that matter. Insurance is not an exciting subject, for most people. The majority of people rate buying insurance alongside dentist visits on their list of favorite ways to spend time. Shopping for and buying cheap car insurance may never be as exciting as watching a ball game but it doesn’t have to be painful.
The Internet helps a little.
The advent of the Internet has done wonders to take the pain out buying insurance. Most companies and many agents have web sites now. Just Google cheap car insurance and see how many returns you get. Free quotes are available on almost every site as are the details of the various policies they offer.
I can hear the moans coming through my monitor now. I know most of you don’t look forward to spending a day reading about insurance. Trust me, if you choose to go this route to look for cheap car insurance, make a fresh pot of coffee before you start. You’re going to need it.
Working with a streamlined search tool is so much easier.
Luckily there is another option. There are many sites online that will do the looking for you. Just fill in a few details and sit back. They will look at the insurance options in your area as well as the online only sites and provide you with free quotes. You just have to choose from the list they provide you. You can narrow your search down to the top 3 or 4 provided search results and know that you’re looking at companies that have exactly what you asked for.
To my mind this is a vast improvement over doing the work yourself. Of course, I can’t speak for everyone but I can find better uses for my time than reading cheap car insurance ads all day. My neighbor is painting his house; someone needs to watch it dry.
