Can you get car insurance estimate without personal information?
All depends on what you mean with “personal information”. Any insurance company will ask you for some personal data. Another thing is what data influence the estimate significantly and what data you better keep confidential. So, to get a more or less accurate estimate, you need to inform the company about:
- The model of your car
- The age of your car
- It’s mileage
- Your age
- If your car has any safety-features and anti-theft systems
- And many more things, among which you can find even a question about the colour of your car.
Don’t get surprised or angry if the company asks about your residence location. You might not want to provide a complete address, but your ZIP might be needed. The thing is that insurance requirements are different in different states. So, your location is one of those important factors that influence insurance prices to a significant extent.
However, it is only up to you whether you want to inform the company about your name and surname, the number of credits you have in banks, your exact address and any other sensitive data. Even without them, you will be able to get a rather accurate estimate cost of your insurance.
