HACKENSACK, N.J., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Few drivers looking for car insurance in New Jersey realize the enormous opportunities they have to slash their costs.
Either from complacency or lack of information, most drivers don't believe it's possible to save a substantial amount of money in a high cost state like New Jersey.
So they don't bother to harness the power of the internet to do a complete and thorough search to find the firm that not only can give them better prices, but can also provide the service that every driver deserves.
Comparison-shopping on the internet to obtain quotes from four or more insurers is a proven tactic to getting more favorable car insurance rates in New Jersey and every other state.
In fact, according to Virtual Car Insurer, a car insurance portal, most drivers can drastically trim their costs by simply making auto insurance companies go head to head against one another.
They claim that if a potential insurer knows a consumer already has a quote from one company, then the insurer is more likely to try and beat that quote. That, in turn, would give consumers better rates.
But where should consumers start their search for the right company? That's where VCI's guide to the top rated New Jersey car insurance companies in comes into play.
They provide a list of the top 3 firms in the state based on cumulative data they've collected from around the web. They took a look at consumer satisfaction ratings for companies from reviews, forums and blog comments posted throughout the internet.
One of the insurers they recommend is the NJM Insurance Group. According to data from a report cited by VCI, this company outperformed all others in the state. The New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance issues an annual report on insurers, and NJM again ranked better than any other firm operating in the state.

The number of complaints filed against most insurers averages eleven per year. But NJM only had two. This is one of the reasons Virtual Car Insurer ranked them as their top company.
In fact, the firm only had a total of 14 complaints in the last 10 years.
Another recommendation from VCI is the Government Employees Insurance Company, better known as Geico. According to Joe Hanlon, VCI spokesperson, "Geico is a well-rounded company with good pricing and a solid background in serving their customers.
But anyone that lives in the state will probably already know that."

The third New Jersey car insurance company they suggest consumers try is State Farm. They, like Geico, have a big presence in NJ and can deliver superior pricing.
The main point from the Virtual Car Insurer guide for New Jersey residents is that consumers need to look at the rates of a few insurers to truly get the best quotes available to them.
