Shop around for your insurance

Auto insurance helps protect you and your family from losses resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Oregon law requires every car driven on public roads to be covered by automobile insurance.

The cost for coverage varies widely among companies doing business in Oregon. That’s why it’s important to shop around when choosing an insurance company. Comparison shopping takes a little more time, but it can save you money. However, cost is just one factor to consider when choosing an insurance company.

It’s also important to look at the company’s financial condition and how it treats its policyholders. A company’s financial information is available from the following organizations that rate insurance companies. The organizations may charge a fee for these services.
