What do I need to get a quote for car insurance?

We can start the auto insurance process with things you already know. It may take less than 10 minutes. Here’s what to expect:

  1. Provide your name, address and date of birth
  2. We’ll search public records so you might not need to fill in the details of your prior insurance history or the drivers and vehicles in your household
  3. You confirm it’s your information
  4. From there, more specific vehicle and personal information along with a brief driving history will better help determine your coverage options, deductible and policy cost

Vehicle information

  • Year, make, model, body style or VIN (Vehicle Information Number)
  • Mileage
  • Address where vehicle is garaged
  • Name of registered owner
  • Date of purchase
  • Prior insurance carrier and expiration date

Driver information and history

  • Driver name(s) and date of birth
  • Driver's License number(s) and state of issue
  • Ticket and accident history
  • License suspension information

We’re here for questions

Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about your auto insurance quote. We offer the ability to select and contact an agent during the quote process (855-980-8053), chat online, or have our representative call you.
And don’t forget, you may save even more when you bundle other policies1 like homeowners insurance.
