Ohio-based insurance agency Insurance.com announced another important milestone in the history of the company.
“This summer marked the sale of our 350,000th policy sold since we launched our first online auto insurance comparison shopping platform in June 2001,” announced Dave Roush, CEO of Insurance.com. “This latest sales figure, just a few months after our previous milestone, is a clear indication of how consumers are increasingly using the internet to shop for important products such as auto insurance.”
Insurance.com announced the sale of their 300,000th policy in April 2006.
“The internet really has become the first place many consumers visit to research and buy products. Our website combines the convenience of the internet with the power of comparison shopping, by bringing together the nation’s leading auto insurance companies in a single marketplace where consumers can compare multiple rates, and buy a policy immediately, either online or on the phone from a licensed agent,” he said.
Roush described the advantages of comparison shopping online for auto insurance; “Not only do consumers get to fine-tune the deductibles and coverage they want, they also get to compare auto insurance rates, side-by-side. By comparing auto insurance rates at Insurance.com, consumers can re-evaluate whether or not they are spending more than they need on their auto insurance, while also finding an insurance company that’s right for them.”
Insurance.com, based in Solon, Ohio, is owned and operated by ComparisonMarket, Inc. Insurance.com enables consumers to instantly compare and buy competitive auto insurance quotes directly from more than a dozen leading insurance companies. When ready to purchase, users have the option of completing the transaction online or talking directly to an unbiased licensed agent.

In addition to Insurance.com, ComparisonMarket provides private labeled auto insurance solutions to financial institutions, affinity groups and online marketplaces to offer their customers real choice and savings opportunities on auto insurance.
