Auto Insurance Savings Check

When was the last time you checked your auto insurance premium to make sure you are getting the best price possible.

If you have been with a company for several years, chances are you signed up and at the time you had a better premium than your previous insurance company.  Once in a while it is a good idea to check on your insurance premiums to see how they compare.

For instance I have Costco/Ameriprise I believe they are pretty competitive. But I am going to run a check and see what comes back from a couple other companies, including AAA, Esurance, AllState, Geico, Farmer’s, and maybe one or two others.


Big discounts + Reliable Coverage

Esurance which is part of AllState sells insurance in 30 states, representing over 85% of the US population.


Switch to Allstate and Save!
