Houston, TX, January 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- New features and data fields have been added to the quote forms at rate-comparison site AutoInsurance.com, which means more precise estimates and a smoother shopping experience for consumers.
The Chief Executive of the site, Cesar Diaz, said that improving the data-entry form brought with it the need to balance brevity with accuracy.
AutoInsurance.com allows motorists shopping for coverage to input basic information about their vehicles, driving history and the type of coverage desired. This information is then run through formulas that produce personally tailored premium estimates from top auto insurance
companies, effectively removing the need for consumers to contact coverage providers one-by-one in order to find the best price for a quality policy.
With the new data fields, the car insurance quote generator asks the types of targeted questions that insurers themselves would ask prospective policyholders.
For fields regarding moving violations, the revamped form allows a motorist to input data about the type of violation and how long ago it was committed.
For fields regarding accident history, the form now allows a motorist to input information about the severity of damages, the date of the accident and the responsible party.
These more targeted data fields are important in order to deliver a quality quote, since many insurance companies only count violations and accidents that occurred within a three-year period, and since many states do not allow insurers to raise rates for accidents that were not the policyholder’s fault.
Although the data fields have been improved, the site still only requires basic, non-sensitive information to produce a quote. No driver’s license or social security numbers are required in order to get an insurance price estimate.
To check out the revamped form and obtain a quote, readers can go to http://autoinsurance.com/
where they will also find informative resource pages about the specifics of getting coverage.
