You were smart to out the insurance company before you leap.  You always check the financial rating of an insurance company as well any feed back on claim service. The best thing is to get free no obligation quotes from several insurnace companies in your area.  You can do that by using our free quote center by clicking here.  I can’t tell you which insurance company would be the best for you.  It really depends on your driving record, the kind of car you drive, your rating zip code and other factors.  But using our quoting center will give you the most competitive prices and then, you can check out the insurance companies track record from there.  GOOD LUCK!
