Most major insurance companies such as Allstate, GEICO and Progressive allow you to get prices direct online. Obtaining pricing doesn’t take much effort as you just enter the coverage amounts you desire into the form. After you complete the form, the system makes automated requests for reports for credit and driving violations and gives you a price quote based on these and other factors.
This helps simplify price comparisons, but having to visit several different sites and type in the same information is a big time waster. But it’s very important to perform this step if you want to get the best price on auto insurance.
A less time-consuming method to find lower prices uses one form to get prices from several companies at one time.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy can be of help when determining appropriate coverage and proper limits and deductibles. The terms used in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.
Collision – This pays for damage to your M3 resulting from a collision with an object or car. A deductible applies then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision can pay for things like damaging your car on a curb, rolling your car, hitting a parking meter, crashing into a building and hitting a mailbox. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Another option is to choose a higher deductible to bring the cost down.
Comprehensive insurance – Comprehensive insurance pays for damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You first have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.
Comprehensive can pay for things like rock chips in glass, falling objects and a broken windshield. The maximum amount a car insurance company will pay at claim time is the cash value of the vehicle, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s not worth carrying full coverage.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – This coverage protects you and your vehicle from other motorists when they either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. This coverage pays for hospital bills for your injuries and damage to your 2015 BMW M3.
Since many drivers only purchase the least amount of liability that is required, their limits can quickly be used up. So UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked.
Coverage for liability – This can cover damages or injuries you inflict on other’s property or people by causing an accident. It protects you from claims by other people, and doesn’t cover your injuries or vehicle damage.
Coverage consists of three different limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show values of 50/100/50 which means a $50,000 limit per person for injuries, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and a total limit of $50,000 for damage to vehicles and property.
Liability can pay for things like bail bonds, attorney fees, structural damage and court costs. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but consider buying higher limits if possible.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for short-term medical expenses such as X-ray expenses, prosthetic devices, nursing services and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used to cover expenses not covered by your health insurance policy or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants and will also cover any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal injury protection coverage is not available in all states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage
