To the best of Lighthouse’s ability and the rating platform we utilize, we have made a diligent effort to ensure that the insurance rate information contained in any insurance rate quote is up-to-date and accurate. However, accuracy cannot be guaranteed.

All quotes are for illustration purposes only. Actual premiums and coverage will be based on coverage limits, exclusions, policy deductibles, age, gender, driving behavior, certain underwriting criteria, state of residence, territory of residence, proximity to coast and prior loss history. Additionally, consumer records including credit, motor vehicle, comprehensive loss underwriting and additional driver disclosure reports may be obtained by Lighthouse or any other affiliated carrier Agent or Broker. It is solely the user’s responsibility to review the accuracy of all quotes and policy data related to any quote or policy secured through a carrier provided rate (For informational purposes only, company-authorized illustration) through this Site. Not all policies or companies are available in all states. Federal copyright law prohibits commercial use by other agents, brokers and parties marketing insurance products or information.
