I've submitted an application but want to change some of my information. How do I do that?
NetQuote is a free matching service that instantly connects you with quality, local insurance agents. After you submit your quote application via our website, NetQuote immediately matches you to local agents and sends your information to them. Because this process happens instantly there is not an opportunity for you to edit your original information after it's been submitted.
We recommend that you communicate the needed changes directly to your matching agents. You can find your agent(s) contact information in the email we sent you to confirm your application. This will ensure your updates are made and that the agent uses the most accurate information available to process your quote.
I didn't get matched to any agents or as many agents as I would have liked. Why is that?
NetQuote's insurance agent network spans the entire U.S. and includes thousands of agents. We work hard to make sure you have a positive experience with our matching service and, on average, provide four insurance agents for every quote application.
While NetQuote has the industry's largest agent network, occasionally we can't match you to an insurance agent. In most cases, this happens because we cannot find enough agents who can offer you a competitive insurance policy within the specifications you provided, in your area.
I can't find the quotes my matching agents provided. Can NetQuote resend these to me?
NetQuote is a free matching service that instantly and directly connects you with quality, local insurance agents. Right after you submit your application, you receive an email from NetQuote with a link to your matching agents and their contact information. Use this information to contact your agents directly to have them re--send your quote information.
I don't want to continue this process and would like my matching agents to stop contacting me. How do I do this?
Unfortunately, once an agent has received your quote--request and contact information, NetQuote cannot stop them from trying to reach you. If an agent reaches you too late, simply tell them you've chosen to go with another agent.
I thought NetQuote provided quotes. Why am I getting calls from insurance agents?

After you submit your quote application via our website, NetQuote immediately matches you to agents in your area that can meet your insurance needs. Then these agents provide you with competitive quotes.
