Stay away from this company at all cost! They are the absolutely worst. Incompetence from top to bottom. Not one person who works there knows what they are doing and the only they are good at is giving you the run around. There are much better insurance companies out there at the same price or lower. STAY AWAY!!!!

What a joke! My wife and I currently live apart due to her work. They have NO POSSIBLE WAY to cover us both on both vehicles at both locations. A REAL insurance company would not have such ridiculous restrictions. Hell, we weren’t even expecting a multi-car discount. They said I would not be covered in each other’s car when we visit each other.

I chose Safeauto to replace my auto insurance that had increased the price of the policy Safeauto quoted a price, but when I signed up for the insurance online they increased the price. I kept the policy for a few months, then switched to Progressive that charged me 1/2 of what Safeauto charges. After I cancelled the policy I received a bill of $31 for a cancellation fee! They also charge $6 to pay by phone. In my opinion, this is a Bait and Switch insurance company! I would highly recommend that you avoid this insurance company.

This insurance company is the worst company to go for car insurance bc there customer service agents and management they will tell u that they will issue a refund in a check and dont do what they said they will sent the refund to another peoples account and also tell u that they cant fix it

Safe Auto less expensive

Save yourself time and money by going elsewhere. The quote will be decent (like $150ish) but after you start they will send you new premium of closer to $300 using some insurance jargon to get you to believe you didn't tell them everything. If you let them, by signing up, they will charge double what others charge just because they are an online company. You can always get a quote from a local office. I found some big names had the best prices like Geico and Allstate which also reports your continuous coverage which helps with large discounts from other companies. I'm just trying to help folks not get ripped off. The "lizard" saved me 50% for real.

Do not purchase a plan with Safe Auto, when you get into an accident they don't cover you.
Luci
Cheap
Brendan
Poor delivery when a claim was made. Rental car set up was a headache. We were not given the correct size car and had to make multiple trips to Enterprise. Communication from SafeAuto was absolutely horrendous working through our claim. I could never get ahold of anyone to ask questions or get clarifications. Our towing fee was never reimbursed although we pay monthly for that coverage.
Vince
Whatever you do, DO NOT buy insurance from this company. I wish i could give them a ZERO star, but i can't. There client hit my daughters car, the adjuster came out and NEVER mentioned this little thing called "Betterment". It means, if your bumper has a scratch, like my daughters did, then YOU are responsible for 20% of the repair...!!!! Honest and reputable insurance companies don't practice this, but Safe Auto does.

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.
