Most Positive Review

By Joe
They provided me with good service and whenever I needed to make a change in coverage they were very accommodating and when I had a claim they were very quick in taking care of it.

Most Critical Review

By Chesney
Farmers is the absolute worst insurance company around, their communication is poor, customer service is poor & they don’t seem to care about their customers needs

Please I wish to enquire if I can pay insurance using my name on my brother's car and drive with my international drivers licenses?

Good agent

Farmers suck. If you are not at fault in an accident. You are on your own. They do nothing. We had to contact their insurance and all kind of rental car arrangements. They did nothing and they sucked.
David
We were in a car accident. The car was hit while my wife and I went for a walk in the park. The gentleman who hit the car was good enough to wait for us to return from our walk. He worked for the city of Maggie Valley. Farmers did nothing for us. We had to contact everyone because the party is as at fault.
Mirtha
Very expensive
Brenda
They were expensive.

Rates and coverage

Professional
Michael
They were always on top of everything I had to do with them. They were always quick to resolve issues and handle my claims. I felt secure with them as my insurance carrier

Methodology

The car insurance quotes displayed are based on an analysis of Insurify’s database of over 40 million quotes from 500 ZIP codes nationwide. To obtain representative rates, Insurify’s data science team performs frequent comprehensive analyses of the factors car insurance providers weigh to calculate rates including driver demographics, driving record, credit score, desired coverage level, and more.

Insurify’s analysis also incorporates the Insurify Composite Score (ICS) assigned to each insurance provider. The ICS is a proprietary rating that weighs multiple factors reflecting the quality, reliability, and health of an insurance company. Ratings used to calculate the ICS include Financial Strength Ratings from A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch; J.D. Power ratings; Consumer Reports customer satisfaction surveys and customer complaints; mobile app reviews; and user-generated company reviews. 

With the above insights and ranking methods, Insurify is able to offer car insurance shoppers insight into how various insurance providers compare to one another in terms of both cost and quality. Note, actual quotes will vary based on unique attributes including the policyholder’s driver history and their garaging address.
