Here's what you need to know...

  • Geico and Liberty Mutual insurance are both established, strong companies
  • You should research car insurance similarly to how you would research a car purchase
  • Both websites offer price quotes, and both have agents you can contact personally

So, you’re shopping for car insurance, and it’s come down to Geico and Liberty Mutual? How about starting with a comparison of these two well-known companies.

When comparing the costs of insurance, the careful consumer examines the company offering the insurance coverage as much as he or she does the price of the car insurance.

Let’s compare this to buying a car. When you’re buying a car, most of us look for a good deal. You’ll examine brands, repair records, reputations, as well as gas mileage and cost before purchasing a car.

Do research on insurance in the same way as you would a new car.

Geico and Liberty Mutual’s Corporate Structure

Two of the major insurance companies in the United States are Geico and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company.

Geico (Government Employees Insurance Company) was originally started to address the needs of U.S. government employees and military personnel.

However, Geico now insures a wide range of customers. Liberty Mutual is a mutual insurance company. This means that, when you purchase an insurance policy from Liberty Mutual, you are a shareholder in the company.

Geico and Liberty Mutual Web Sites — and Price Quotations

Both companies offer the option of receiving an online quote, and both also use a system of independent agents in the United States for those who prefer to meet with an agent in person.

Going to an agent instead of accessing the company online does not change the premiums.

Both websites are user-friendly in that they are easy to use and clear with instructions.

Geico has more information on their website if you want to access it.

You can make payments online for either company securely, and both have a number of finance options. Check both websites to obtain quotes for your insurance needs.
