Where do I start shopping for auto insurance?

The Department of Insurance and Financial Services’ (DIFS) website can help you find a licensed insurance company and insurance agent to assist you in purchasing auto insurance. Some insurance companies do not use local agents; therefore, you can call the insurance company directly to obtain a quote. An insurance company cannot deny you coverage based on where you live or whether they have an agent in your area.

Use DIFS’ Insurance Licensee Locator to search for insurance companies, agents, and agencies licensed to sell homeowners insurance in Michigan.

Remember to only work with licensed insurance companies, agents, and agencies. If you have concerns about the individual or entity you are working with, contact DIFS toll-free at 877-999-6442.
