See what our customers have to say about our highly-rated service:

  • Alice and her team is amazing! I found them through Allstate's local agent search since I was relocating to Seattle and needed help for renters and auto insurance. I can see why Alice and her team was highly recommended. They are very reliable, informative, prompt, and above and beyond. The process was very smooth since they were there every step of the way; and also were patient and even provided solutions whenever we hit roadblocks. I am glad to have found such an amazing team and can look forward to knowing I am in good hands.
  • Alice is the best insurance agent I have had to date. She is extremely professional and responsive to emails and calls even on the weekend. Occasionally things do slip through the cracks with all of the moving parts at Allstate as a whole, but whenever there is a problem, Alice always takes care of it promptly.
  • Alice came highly recommended to me from a good friend of ours. So when my auto insurance was about to renew, I reached out to Alice to see if she could review my policy and helped me save some costs. She was so thorough in going over all the details of my policies with me and really took the time to explain how my coverages work. The quotes came out just about the same as my current (or I should say previous) policies but I decided to switch to Alice. I love how responsive and dedicated she is. I can see why my friend recommended Alice and I am a happy customer now!

We are here to answer your questions.

When shopping for car insurance with different insurance companies, it's important to make sure your quotes have comparable coverage limits and deductibles. 

Here are some quick tips when shopping for auto insurance:

  • Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability meet the Washington state legal requirement. We strongly recommend discussing with an insurance professional before choosing these limits. 
  • Deductibles for Comprehensive and Collision coverages are the same in the comparable quotes. Both of these coverages are required if your car is leased or financed.
  • Uninsured Motorist and Personal Injury Protection coverages are offered to you. In Washington state, both of these coverages are required to be offered to you during the coverage selection process. 
  • Emergency roadside coverage and rental car/travel expense coverage. These coverages come in handy at the time of a claim, so be sure to look for these optional coverages when obtaining a quote.

Each city may have its own level of risk when it comes to auto insurance. Keep in mind that your auto insurance rate in Woodinville, WA may be different than another person insured in Mill Creek. 

Auto Insurance 101

Collision coverage: 

Collision coverage is the coverage you will use to repair or replace your car if it was damaged in an accident with another car or in a rollover crash. 

Collision is an optional coverage and is not required in Washington state. The required insurance coverage for registered cars in Washington is liability coverage

If your car is leased or financed, your lender is likely to require you to carry both collision and comprehensive coverage in your auto insurance policy

Personal injury protection coverage:

If you are injured in a car accident, the coverage that will take care of your injuries is the personal injury protection (PIP) coverage on your car insurance policy.

The best feature of PIP coverage is its immediate benefits after an accident. PIP is also commonly known as the “no-fault coverage” which means the benefits will apply regardless who was at fault for the accident.

Uninsured motorist coverage: 

If you happen to be in an accident where the other driver is responsible but he or she does not have an active insurance policy in place, the uninsured motorist coverage on your insurance policy will cover for your car repairs and your injuries from the accident.

Without uninsured motorist coverage, if you were hit by someone without insurance, you would have to use your own collision coverage to fix your car damages and personal injury protection coverage to visit the doctor for injuries. If you didn’t carry collision or PIP coverage, you would have to independently pursue any accident-related costs directly from the responsible driver.
