Skokie, IL (PressExposure) July 12, 2011 -- Statewide Insurance Agency of Skokie (just outside Chicago), an independent insurance agency born out of the desire to help Chicago auto insurance [http://chicagoautoandhomeownersinsurance.com] seekers big name insurance companies had nothing for, or not at reasonable prices, announces it recently launched a new site, a blog.
The blog contains articles that have information that will help Chicago home insurance [http://chicagoautoandhomeownersinsurance.com] seekers as well as those Chicagoans looking for car insurance make better decisions when buying insurance.
"You see websites and ads for discounted, inexpensive insurance. And that's good. People are concerned about paying too much for car or homeowners insurance. However, we've noticed that many people pay too much for insurance even when they do have low premiums. Because they don't have the right coverage.
If you pay little for something you don't need and don't buy what you do need, it doesn't matter that the price was low, does it? People are buys, policy contracts are not written in plain English, so people often miss important points," says Statewide Insurance Agency of Skokie.
Statewide believes that they would miss fewer things if they knew what to look out for. Its new blog aims to show them just that.
Lack of accurate information hinders people long before they get to see a policy contract, when they first start talking to an insurance agent. Agents can help people fully only if people know what questions to ask, what information the agent needs to pick good coverage for them.
Statewide has also found that many people don't know the first thing about how insurers decide what insurance rate they'll quote. Which wouldn't matter much if some of the criteria were not entirely under the control of the person looking to buy insurance.
Statewide's new blog aims to address lack of information at the early stages, including information about the criteria used to determine rates that are under the control of the people looking for insurance too.
