car insurance

car insurance

backstory: ok i have had safety insurance from MA for the last 7 years and this year i had paid just under $800 for the whole year coverage. my payments were like $80-90 per month for 9 months now, i just moved to lincoln park, MI and i'm looking for a new insurance company. i've looked online at aig, allstate, statefarm, esurance, and progressive and they were all about $1300+ insurance for the year, with 6 monthly payments around $230+. is the higher premiums because i've never used these companies? i figured i've had good standing with my current insurance and that i could possibly stay closer to $1000. maybe because i have an suv? i've never had to find my own insurance before--my aunt had done all that way back when i was first insured. are there any other insurance companies that i could look up? i see all these commercials for these companies and how they save "hundreds of dollars" on car insurance, but it doesn't look like i'd really be saving. :( TIA for any help
