    My experience shopping for auto insurance has been great with requesting quotes myself based on my information and then comparing them myself.

    Do you know the difference between price and cost?

    Getting a cheaper price now might up costing you a bundle later if you got the wrong company.

    I'm all for shopping and comparing rates. But you also need to research the insurance companies for how many complaints they have and what their customers say about them. Easily gleaned online these days.

    For almost every reason outside of cost, State Farm is the clear choice. Progressive is a complete goofball organization as most people on here can attest to. I avoid them whenever I can. I have almost all my insurance with State farm, and have for a long time.

    Go to www.TrustedChoice.com and find a couple of independent insurance agents near you that can offer package quotes for auto, homeowners and umbrella. As AdjusterJack said, not all companies are the same. That's also true of the policies they sell and their claims practices. Check out this article:

    Price Check

    Insurance is not a commodity differentiated only by price.

    State Farm by far. I wrote Progressive 23 years and they pull some real underhanded b.s. Do not trust them

    Based on my experience with State Farm, they seem to be the ones pulling crap with shady business practices.

    I have seen the same thing too. State Farm can definitely be shady.

    But if State Farm is shady, then Progressive is straight up pitch black.
