Company History

Sing it with us..."Nationwide is on your side...!"

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Nationwide was founded in 1926. 

Nationwide is a mutual insurance company, meaning its policyholders function as its owners. While Nationwide specializes in personal auto insurance coverage and other property and casualty insurance policies, like motorcycle insurance, classic car insurance, and ATV insurance, it's far more than an auto insurance company. Nationwide also sells life insurance, homeowners insurance, and specialty coverages like travel insurance, dental insurance, and wedding insurance. As one can imagine, multi-policy discounts abound. 

Nationwide holds a J.D. Power and Associates overall customer satisfaction rating of 3 out of 5. Among the nation's top insurance providers, this is an average score. 

A.M. Best, a credit rating company that assesses the financial strength of insurance companies, gives Nationwide an "A+," denoting superior financial health and ability to pay out claims.

Most Positive Review

By Jimmy
I’ve been with nationwide for many years as a happy customer. I’m looking over the market to see if my rates are high or low.

Most Critical Review

By Tammy
Never could get a straight answer. No one would call me back. Got the run around. My rates kept climbing when my husband and I have perfect driving records.

appalling disconnect between field and home offices, with the home usually two weeks behind events in the field. Which causes continuing billing errors which NW does not acknowledge.
They are fair
The rates I had with them and their prompt and courteous service.
They are ok just price
Too expensive for the age of me and the car.
Price increases
After I had a serious accident the amount I received for my totaled car had been nickel and dimed so low there was no way to get a comparable car. I understand deductions for mileage etc... but when a top of the line model cant even equate to a bottom of the line model in an older model something is wrong.
Nothing remarkable either way.
