Another Geico bill arrived in Saturday’s mail. I wrote a couple of month’s back about my frustration over Geico’s latest advertising scheme. They keep saying they’ve lowered their rates in California, but my rates still haven’t gone down. So I went looking for car insurance quotes again. This time I checked out Auto Insurance Remedy, whose slogan is: “Making It Easy To Find The Best Rates”.
The front page has a deceptively simple form asking only for your first name, state and zip code. After filling this out you’re then guided through pretty much an identical form to the forms found on other auto insurance quote sites. It’s not difficult, but not particularly easy either. There’s about a dozen pages worth of questions asking about your car, driving history, what type of coverage you want and your personal contact info. Once you’ve worked your way through those you’ll be prompted for your email address again (if you choose not to provide it the first time) and then provided with a list of insurance agents who “will be contacting you shortly to provide a quote”. In my case it was Allstate and Farmers Insurance.
