FORT LEE, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Walmart and AutoInsurance.com today announced the continued national

expansion of the first-of-its-kind auto insurance comparison site into

11 new states, including South Carolina. This comes on the heels of an

overwhelming customer response to the service in the eight states

launched earlier this year.

Customers who have used the site to compare and purchase new auto

insurance policies and have reported their savings reduced their annual

premiums by more than $1,000 on average.1 In addition to

savings for previously insured customers, an extraordinary 33 percent of

new policyholders were previously uninsured.2

“AutoInsurance.com represents a huge opportunity to make a difference in

the lives of a lot of South Carolinians. Currently, drivers in the state

pay over $1,440 per household in premiums each year and more than

250,000 are uninsured,”3 said Joshua Kazam, founder of

AutoInsurance.com.

Kazam added “And, by providing affordable options that help reduce the

number of uninsured motorists, AutoInsurance.com may also make a

positive impact on insurance rates in South Carolina, where the number

of uninsured drivers increases costs for everyone.”

Comparison Shopping for Auto Insurance – In One Place

Traditionally, auto insurance plans have been difficult to compare,

requiring customers to visit multiple websites and turn over their

personal information to each. AutoInsurance.com solves that problem. By

building a fast, easy-to-use website, customers can compare and buy real

policies from many leading national insurance carriers all in one place.

And, unlike lead generation services, AutoInsurance.com does not sell

customers’ information. Here’s how it works:

  • When customers log on to the website, all they have to do is provide

    their name, address, date of birth and contact information.

  • Customers can opt-in to have AutoInsurance.com automatically retrieve

    their current auto insurance policy information. This allows

    AutoInsurance.com to fill in most of the necessary coverage, vehicle

    and driver information and provide a direct apples-to-apples

    comparison to their existing policy.

  • In just minutes, the customer is provided multiple quotes from many of

    the leading carriers. They can customize their coverage, including

    deductibles, and see those choices immediately reflected in the quotes.

  • They can choose to purchase the policy online immediately, speak with

    a licensed agent at 800-700-7500, or save their information and make

    the purchase later. There is absolutely no cost or commitment to use

    the service.

  • Customers will only be contacted in the future by AutoInsurance.com or

    the carrier of the policy they purchase.

In addition to South Carolina, the service will now be available in

Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, New Mexico,

Ohio, Oregon and Washington. In total, AutoInsurance.com will now cover

more than half of the U.S. population.

“Walmart is proving once again that when we offer services that are

simple to use and save money, our customers win big,” said Daniel

Eckert, senior vice president of services for Walmart U.S. “Our

customers have told us that auto insurance is one of their largest

household expenses, but one of the toughest to do anything about. We’re

so excited to work with AutoInsurance.com as they expand this service

and give South Carolinians an easy way to save big money on auto

insurance.”

Helping South Carolinians Save

According to a survey commissioned by AutoInsurance.com, only 20 percent

of Americans say they comparison shop for auto insurance.4

“Nationwide, 34 percent of consumers spent more than one hour

researching auto insurance during the past year,” said Kazam. “Customers

tell us that shopping around for auto insurance is too complex and time

consuming, which leaves them settling for policies that aren’t

necessarily the best fit and cost more than they want to spend.

AutoInsurance.com can help South Carolinians do better.”
