: In the past a person who wanted to purchase insurance for his car had to free up the afternoon just to call different insurance companies, listen to the repetitive waiting music, answer the same tedious questions over and over again, and ask for quotes from the service representative. Others would set up a meeting with the insurance agent and bother themselves to come to a face-to-face meeting at the expense of their free time, only to hear from him all sorts of exploding terms they did not understand, and then would sit down with pen and paper to draw a table comparing the various offers.
Fortunately, today the situation is completely different. The task of comparing prices can be done in a few minutes, through the websites of the insurance companies, without having to wait in line, without faxes and even with customization to your needs, from the youngest driver's age to the age of the vehicle.
