Walmart is partnering with AutoInsurance.com to offer auto insurance quotes from multiple insurers online directly from the Walmart website.
AutoInsurance.com, operated by New Jersey-based insurance agency Tranzutary Insurance Solutions LLC, says customers can obtain multiple quotes from carriers such as Progressive, Esurance, Safeco, The General, and others. The service is available immediately in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas, “with plans to be offered nationwide in the coming months.”
Joshua Kazam, founder of AutoInsurance.com, says, “Today, nearly 90 percent of people comparison shop online for products and services like airline tickets, but our survey data shows that only one in five comparison shop for auto insurance. We want to make comparison shopping for auto insurance much simpler and faster for everyone who wants to save money on their premiums.”
The companies say the service is launching after “a successful pilot that took place in Pennsylvania last year.”
