Four steps to find cheaper Fresno car insurance rates

The easiest way to find discount car insurance rates is to compare prices annually from insurance carriers who provide auto insurance in Fresno.

  1. Get an understanding of how car insurance works and the things you can control to prevent expensive coverage. Many rating factors that cause rate increases like getting speeding tickets and poor credit history can be eliminated by being financially responsible and driving safely.
  2. Quote rates from direct, independent, and exclusive agents. Exclusive and direct companies can only provide price estimates from a single company like GEICO or Farmers Insurance, while agents who are independent can provide rate quotes for a wide range of companies.
  3. Compare the new rate quotes to your existing coverage and determine if there is any savings. If you find better rates and make a switch, make sure coverage does not lapse between policies.
  4. Provide adequate notice to your current company of your intention to cancel the current policy. Submit payment along with a signed and completed policy application to the new company. As soon as you have the new policy, safely store the proof of insurance certificate in an easily accessible location.

The most important part of shopping around is to compare identical limits and deductibles on every quote request and and to get prices from as many different companies as possible. This provides an apples-to-apples comparison and a complete selection of prices.
