Auto Insurance rates - hard pull?

I want to contact my auto insurance and see if I can get a better rate from them (Progressive).  Will they do a hard pull for this request?

It was a soft pull.  I went from $168.83/month to $121.50/month!  28% discount!!! 47.33 less per month!

 

Thanks MyFICO :smileyhappy:

Not sure.  All I know it wasnt a hardpull on all three.  I use Progressive.

Re: Auto Insurance rates - hard pull?

I made 1 year of coverage with Progressive (10% discount) and lower credit score (18%).  The 10% I was told so by simple math, that leaves 18% for the better credit report :smileyhappy:
