Why Do You Have to Have My Full Name to Do a Quote?

The price of your auto insurance is calculated based on the claims, accidents, tickets and credit score. Having your full name gets a more accurate quote so the insurance companies can find you in the consumer reports. No one likes surprises. If we put in a shorter name or nickname into the quoting system, we may not find all your tickets, accidents and claims or the best credit score to give you our best rate. Worse yet, we might sell you a policy at one price today and the company may raise the price after the policy is issued because they investigate further and find more claims or accidents under your full name. It's best to go ahead and give us your full legal name as it appears on your drivers license from the beginning so we can provide you with a more accurate quote. No one wants to play the guessing game when it comes to auto insurance rates.
