Most Critical Review

I bought an auto policy in 7/2/2015. Then got a letter of notice more than 2 months later that premium is being increased by 600 dollars. My husband spoke to a staff at Safeco, that we provided all the info on runningg drivig records before buying the policy, and it was reviewed before the contract. It ws not accceptable that the premium incrased so much, to the amount we never agreed upon, we would've never bought at first place. Talking about refund, applying the incrased premium retroactively for the past 2 months does not make sense at all, either! We stated we wanted to speak to the staff's manager/supervisor the next say, and he said yes, but nobody called us back since last Friday. Very disappointing experience with both Safeco and Answer. We submitted cancel request and waiting. Will need to get proper amount of refund. Very unreasonable

Doing really well
Cynthia Davis
I just want to give everyone a warning about SafeCo insurance. They are trying to scam me out of $400 because I refuse to show them what my bank balance is (I showed them where the money came out, with reference numbers, but they want my balance).. And every time I call they make up something new to try to keep my money, and my policy never even started with them because he stated (in a recorded call) that the quote was for me and my son, yet only added me, and charged me the price he quoted for both of us. Now I have had to file a complaint with the Insurance Commissioner and my bank. What a nightmare. I hate thieves and con artists. I hope karma serves you just what you deserve, SafeCo.

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.
