Online Quotes: Who We Are...
OnlineQuotes.com got its start when we noticed the glaring lack of sites that allow consumers to shop for multiple quotes on a wide variety of financial services. We found a few sites that allowed consumers to shop for car insurance or mortgage loans, to name a few, but these sites constrained users to only one product or service. At this point, we saw an opportunity. To make comparison shopping easier for people in the market for online quotes, we decided to create a site that would allow visitors to get free quotes on everything from insurance policies to mortgage loans to credit cards.
Apart from providing quotes for these financial services, it became clear that consumers simply needed more information in order to make important buying decisions: whether about specific policy choices, or simply updates on related current events which may affect the timing of consumer financial decisions. At that point, we assembled a team of noted financial journalists and researchers committed to providing only the latest and most pertinent information. From online financial news to advice, at OnlineQuotes.com we want to make sure you have the tools necessary for making only the wisest choices. Thanks to you and all of our other visitors as we continue to grow and progress as a company.
