As a driver it is important to have the proper car insurance. Searching for a policy can be time-consuming and stressful. To save time you may decide to just choose a company from a list of popular companies.

Consumers rated the company in terms of payments and billing, policy offerings, ability to contact the insurer, pricing, and overall satisfaction. Amica Mutual received five stars in every category, which is the highest score you can receive.

Looking at the financial rating of a company is also important. This is a good determinant as to whether the company has enough assets to cover present and future claims, and if it is a stable company.

According to A.M. Best, Amica Mutual has a financial rating of “A++.” This is the highest and best rating that you can receive.

State Farm

Allstate is another car insurance company that has been around for many years. It is able to offer a wide variety of policies, including policies that are affordable for those on a budget. It has built a reputation for itself with its popular television ads and slogans.

Consumer ratings give the company an average rating, with three stars across the board, including overall satisfaction. Its financial rating is “A+,” which is a superior rating. It is a company that will be around for a long time.


Geico Insurance has become a household name thanks to its ads, which contain a talking gecko. It has always claimed to be very affordable and tells consumers that switching to the company as your insurance provider may help you save as much as 15% on your premiums.

USAA is considered to be the top car insurance company for members of the military and their families. It not only provides insurance, but also support and other benefits for the military community. Although non-military members can take advantage of some of the benefits offered by USAA, auto insurance is not one of them.

Car insurance and other property insurance are only available for those associated with the military.

Whether or not you choose to insure your vehicle with a company from this list, it is important to do your research. If you are looking for a company that offers cheap insurance, make sure that you are able to get the coverage you need.

If being able to contact the company and speak with an actual person is important, look for a company with a high customer service rating.

If you are ever in an accident, you want your claim to be handled expediently and fairly. Look for a company that has a good reputation or contact your state insurance department to ask if there have been any complaints against the company.
