Walmart to Begin Selling Auto Insurance
Walmart has partnered with AutoInsurance.com to offer car insurance to its customers at "everyday low prices."
The new arrangement provides an auto insurance comparison service through the AutoInsurance.com website from national insurance carriers that include Progressive, Esurance, Safeco, Travelers, and 21st Century.
Walmart said it will direct customers to the website through its own website and in stores but will not sell the insurance directly.
Walmart customers using AutoInsurance.com, which is operated by Fort Lee, N.J.-based licensed property/casualty insurance agency Tranzutary Insurance Solutions, will see multiple quotes from each of the carriers.
The offerings are currently available in only eight states — Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas— but the companies said they have plans to expand nationwide and also add more carriers.
