If you aren’t receiving every discount available, you’re just leaving money on the table.

Delaware consumers constantly see and hear ads for cheaper car insurance by companies like Allstate, GEICO and Progressive. All the ads make an identical promise about savings if you switch to them.
How does each company make almost identical claims? This is how they do it.
Insurance companies have a certain “appetite” for the type of customer that makes them money. For example, a desirable insured could be over the age of 50, has no driving citations, and chooses high deductibles. Any new insured that hits that “sweet spot” receives the best rates and is almost guaranteed to save quite a bit of money when switching.
Consumers who are not a match for this ideal profile will have to pay higher premiums and ends up with the driver buying from a lower-cost company. The ads say “people who switch” not “people who quote” save that much. That is how insurance companies can state the savings. Because of the profiling, it is so important to quote coverage with many companies. It’s impossible to know which insurance companies will fit your personal profile best.
