Press release from: Insure Pacific Inc

Many insurance companies have filed rate revisions over the last 12 months. Consumers can now check if they are paying a competitive insurance rate as shopping for insurance is now much easier then it has been in the past.

Portland, OR, April 21, 2008

Most people do not realize it, but they maybe paying too much for their insurance. The reason for this is that many people fail to periodically shop their insurance rates.

A number of insurance companies filed rate revisions over the last 12 months. Due to these revisions, some insurance carriers are offering lower rates then others. Because of this, consumers should occasionally shop and check if they are paying a competitive rate.

Shopping for insurance has previously been difficult and time consuming. However, the advent of new online technology has made shopping for insurance more efficient. “It is really easy for people to shop their insurance through our website.” says George Elsom, President of, an independent insurance agency serving the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon, Washington and Idaho. It takes less than 10 minutes to get 9 different online quotes from us.”

Not too long ago it used to take a significant amount time and effort to shop insurance rates. It usually entailed spending hours calling agent after agent getting quotes by phone. Now the phone is becoming obsolete as more shoppers are turning to websites that quote rates online.

“Our real benefit is that the insurance shopper can instantly get quotes from 9 different insurance companies. The shopper can compare rates and buy coverage from us immediately” said Elsom. It’s a quick process that has positioned as a one stop shop for the insurance buyer.”

Although technology has changed, some of the time consuming problems with insurance shopping still exist. Many direct writer insurance companies offer shoppers the ability to obtain quotes from their websites. Unfortunately to comparison shop requires the consumer must go from company site to site to obtain multiple quotes. Sites like and others consolidate quotes from multiple insurance carriers, saving the shopper time when comparing rates. “Our quoting system takes the frustration of insurance shopping away because the consumer only has to provide their information once” said Elsom from

Insurance shoppers also need to recognize that there are many well positioned lead generation sites that sell personal information to multiple insurance sales organizations. Requesting quotes from these sites typically result in the insurance shopper being contacted by a large number of competing insurance sales people. These sites are easily identified due to their generic features and lack of comprehensive “contact us” and “about us” information.

People should no longer be paying too much for their insurance as shopping for insurance rates has never been easier. With an investment of only 10 minutes, people can check if their insurance rates are competitive or if they can save money by buying from another insurance carrier or agency.
