Being a military we move a lot. Each move to a new state brings the need for new insurance. Each move is a reminder that not every company has the best prices and coverage in every state. What worked best in our last state didn’t work best in this one for example. Different car insurance companies have different plans that can save us money and I don’t always know all the options or have the time to research them all. This is where http://thehartford.com/ comes in. I can get quotes on their site for not just auto insurance but also home insurance and small business and more. Bundles can save money! Still a computer is not always as smart as an actual person, they don’t always know what questions to ask or how to see a certain situation so they don’t always know to offer certain options. This is where having an actual agent helps. In my area there are over 8 agents close by. There are advantages to knowing your local agent, specially if you need help with something, are in a crash, or need to make a claim.
2 years ago my family was in a crash. It happened days before moving across country and without a local agent who could come out to us quick we ended up not even getting to talk to anyone for over a month after it happened. Turned out our insurance was not as good as I thought it was. We had to change our coverage anyway seeing we moved states and as it turned out, staying with that company, whom we had been with for 6 years was not our best option anyway. I had not yet found The Hartford so I was on my own to try and find the best options and I can’t say I did a good job on my own. Many changes later it is looking like we soon will be making yet more changes and will need to have someone look at everything and tell us what the next step should be. One of the changes is that we are getting rid of one of our vans, either giving it to a family member who needs it or to a junk shop or donating it. It’s time with us is over. If my sister gets it, it shouldn’t be much to find insurance too and I hope she uses this site to help her too!
