The Del Toro website has an extensive glossary that defines many of the most common terms that are used in the auto insurance industry. Policy holders can make a payment online or submit a claim from the website. There is a list of Florida office locations for prospective customers along with phone numbers. The website is quite minimal and does not offer much information about any unique discounts or features of Del Toro compared to other insurance providers. Visitors cannot get a free quote from the website and must call a Del Toro office for a quote.
We could not find any reviews of Del Toro Insurance online, most likely due to the fact that it is a new and small market insurance provider. There was one unresolved complaint on the company’s BBB website.
There is very little information available on Del Toro Insurance so it’s hard to make a recommendation one way or the other.
