About Us

We strive to be your most trusted partner in pursuing the right auto insurance.

Our Goal

Our goal at BuyAutoInsurance.com is to help you find the auto insurance that best fits your individual needs at the lowest rate possible, whether you’re insuring your first car, your family member’s car, upgrading to a fancier car, or any of the hundreds of unique circumstances in between.

We want to give you the peace of mind of getting fully covered at an affordable price.

How it Works

  • Give us the basics — Provide general information to get auto insurance quotes that fit your specific needs
  • Compare prices — Take a look through insurance estimates from various companies
  • Get covered — Find the best car insurance coverage fit for you with lower premium rates

Quick Tips for Lowering Auto Insurance Rates

  • Maintain a good driving record — If you can demonstrate that you have a good driving history and can go several years without an insurance claim, you can get lower rates.
  • Bundle with other types of insurance — By bundling an insurance policy with a home or renters insurance policy, most companies will significantly discount your premiums.
  • Take a driving class — Immediately lower your premiums by taking a driver’s education class to show your interest in remaining a safe driver. This can be especially beneficial for teen drivers, which is an age group that insurance companies consider the most high-risk.
  • Store you car in a safe place — if you have a garage to put your car into, the car insurance company will consider your car less susceptible to damage and/or theft.
  • Select a higher deductible — By choosing an insurance policy with a higher deductible, you can instantly lower your premium. However, if you get into an accident you will have to pay more out of your own pocket for any damages that were your fault.
