Comparing Esurance Quotes
Insurance rates don't just vary from state to state and company to company. Many of your personal circumstances will determine how much you'll pay each month in premiums. For example:
In the chart above, age and marital status all play a major role in what Esurance will ask you to pay for your premiums. Because this is a California survey, other important factors (such as credit) weren't factored into the data. However, the odds are likely that a low credit score may yield a higher premium quote from companies like Esurance where you live. So keep that in mind while you're comparison shopping.
Pros and Cons of Esurance
|The Esurance mobile app has more features than most competitor's apps||The app doesn't always function correctly on all phones|
|High customer service ratings in the categories of "insurance shopping" "repairs", and "policy management"||Poor customer reviews in the categories of "customer satisfaction", "claim response", "appraisal", and "settlement"|
Esurance seems like the perfect insurance provider for anyone who's tech-savvy, wants to craft a custom insurance policy for their specific needs, and considered a "preferred risk" driver. However, they don't have the infrastructure to cater to the sizeable US population who still prefer to do business the old-fashioned way - face-to-face. If you're considering Esurance, make sure you use AutoInsuranceEZ's handy quote tool to compare premiums from multiple companies and get the best rate.Corporate Headquarters
