Our friends at DailyWorth recently spoke to Cassandra Gleese, a busy mom of three in Washington who found CoverHound and saved more than $800 a year on car insurance. Here's her story:
How did you shop for car insurance before you found CoverHound?
I’d hear about companies through word of mouth or online ads. I’d plug my information into their websites and random people would call me over the next few days until I figured out which policy might work for my family. Then it would take a week or two to be finalized and for me to find new coverage—or not.
How did CoverHound help you?
Everything about CoverHound was just more pleasant. I found out about it in an email, and Jackie, the advisor I worked with, was really patient. It was easy. I didn’t have to do the work. And when we were able to save money I think she was just as excited as I was.
CoverHound found policies priced quite a bit lower than I’d found. I even added renters insurance to my car insurance, and I still pay less than I used to. So now I save more than $800 a year and I actually have more coverage. It’s nice to know that if I have any accidents in my home I’ll be able to replace my things.
What do you do with that $800 a year?
I know it’s not the most exciting thing [laughs], but I add it to my savings.
That actually sounds pretty great.
Having the extra money in my account helps. I have three little kids, and it’s hard to save when you have all these needs popping up all the time. It’s a huge reason why CoverHound is so nice—I didn’t have to take time out of my normal schedule. I could just chat on the phone while going about my regular day.
At CoverHound, you can compare instant auto insurance quotes from top providers such as Progressive, Esurance, and Travelers. It’s fast and simple, with no obligation to purchase. Plus, you can save up to 40 percent with all discounts when you bundle your car insurance with renters or homeowners coverage.
