I bought a motorcycle and wanted to add it to my auto policy. It wasn't expensive, but it was more than I was expecting. I got three quotes at Online Cheap Insurance, and they were all less than what my current company charged. A policy for just my car was even lower than what I was already paying.

I filled out a quote form at another website, and I got 16 phone calls from insurance agents. Half of them weren't even in my town. And they wanted the same information that I had already put in the form. Pushy! At Online Cheap Insurance I didn't get any phone calls. I just picked the companies I wanted a quote from.

All the insurance companies here are names you've heard of. There aren't any no-name companies - that makes me feel safe.

I tried a form at cheapcarinsunrance.net, and didn't even get any quotes online, but at least ten phone calls from insurance agents. At OnlineCheapInsurance.com I picked five insurance companies and got quotes instantly. I was even able to buy my policy right from the company's website.

I tried a bunch of other insurance sites for quotes. I filled out a form and got nothing but pushy salesmen calling all hours of the day. I probably got six calls from each form I filled out. When I tried Online Cheap Insurance, I got a list of insurance companies that I instantly recognized. I picked which insurance companies I wanted quotes from. It was really easy.

Just put in my zip code and I got a list of big name insurance companies. Even my current insurance company was on the list! They didn't have the cheapest rate, but they offered better options on towing and rental coverage so I stayed with them. I didn't know I had a good deal until I compared what other companies could offer. I can check here again when it is time to renew my policy!
