Insurance Quotes FAQ
What is a quote?
A quote is an estimate of premium for the insurance coverage you selected and information you entered. A quote is not an offer for insurance or an insurance contract. Farmers offers online insurance quotes for Auto insurance, Home insurance, Renters insurance, Condo insurance and Term Life insurance.
Why do you need my email address just to provide me with a quote?
We use your email address to send you a copy of your completed quote. If you wish to purchase your quote with Farmers, we can also use your email address to retrieve your saved quote. We will not give or sell your email address or any of your personal information for marketing purposes. If you do not feel comfortable giving us your email address or do not have one, you can always contact a Farmers agent to purchase a policy.
Why do you need my phone number?
Why do I have to provide my date of birth to get a quote?
Why do you order consumer reports for quotes?
Like the majority of insurance companies, we may review your credit-based insurance score to give you an accurate quote. These reports, along with other reports such as motor vehicle reports, driving history, and claim history could all be used as factors in determining your insurance rate. Whether you are getting a quote or purchasing a policy today, we will order some of these consumer reports. However, be assured that these will not affect your credit rating.
Please note: California does not use insurance scores.
