Most Positive Review

By
They have been very accommodating and very convenient on ways to communicate to them.

Most Critical Review

By
The insurance company sames to OK. BUT! to find or get a phone number to call the office to chance billing or other items it EXTREMELY difficult!! Needs to be a much better way to get the customer service number out to its customers. Have seen the same complaints on the enternet! Do something about it!!!!!!!!

Tina
Good coverage, great price
Luis
I was in a car accident where another vehicle crashed into my car as I was stopped at a crosswalk (while pedestrians were crossing), yet this insurance dropped me without doing anything, not even the bare minimum. They wont cover any damage, nor is even doing anything to get the other person's insurance to pay. It is the worst experience I've ever had and it's ridiculous. I wouldnt recommend this company to absolutely anybody, unless you are a masochist that likes to deal with stressful situations whilst getting your arse fracked.

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.
