Car insurance is a legal requirement for anyone who wants to drive on the road. This sometimes feels punitive to drivers, as premiums are often higher than they would like to pay, especially if they are a safe driver. Auto Insurance Monkey is a price comparison website like no other. Instead of asking for the make and model of the car, they ask for the ZIP code of the driver. This helps identify local insurers that may be able to help cover a car for cheaper than one of the big national insurance corporations. —
By localizing the search results, the site can better make use of its comprehensive national database, targeting customers to independent local insurers that may be in a position to help people get a better rate than they would get elsewhere. The initial inquiry takes just seconds to complete, and individuals can get cheap full coverage car insurance quotes within minutes.
The change of strategy from the website came after investigations showed that these local providers were being underserved by other price comparison sites. This was despite the fact that their rates were often preferable. Their customer service is also superior, thanks to their local knowledge and independent operation.
A spokesperson for AutoInsuranceMonkey.com explained, “We are happy to be able to champion these smaller locally-based insurers, as well as helping people see which national insurers will actually offer insurance to particular states and neighborhoods. With this information, our users are perfectly set up to get the best deal possible. Insurers who list with us know they are going to be fairly represented to customers who are best placed to make use of their services. It’s a win for everyone. We believe this will soon become the new normal when it comes to searching for car insurance online.”
