I’m thrilled to announce the launch of AutoInsurance.com, a first-of-its-kind auto insurance comparison service that helps customers compare, buy and save on auto insurance policies all in one simple and convenient place.
At Walmart, our business is driven by a commitment to taking products and services that are complex and pricey and making them easy and affordable.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve been hearing a lot from our customers about auto insurance. They’ve been telling us that it’s one of their biggest monthly expenses -- even bigger than healthcare for some.
But it’s not just expensive. It’s frustrating. And it’s time consuming to shop for and compare quotes from multiple carriers. In fact, nearly 90% of people comparison shop online for products and services like airline tickets, but only one in five comparison shop for auto insurance.
The result of all of this is that customers too often have to settle for auto insurance policies that aren’t the best fit and cost more than they want to spend.
Using AutoInsurance.com, customers are provided with multiple quotes from many of the leading national insurance carriers in just minutes that are available to purchase right then and there. It’s that easy!
The results have been incredible. Over the past year, we’ve tested AutoInsurance.com in Pennsylvania. Customers who purchased policies and reported their savings reduced their annual insurance costs by $1,168 on average.
This first-of-a-kind service, which has no additional cost or commitment, is available immediately in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas, with plans to offer it nationwide in the coming months.
AutoInsurance.com is the latest example of innovation and has the potential to forever change the way people shop for auto insurance.
