Farm Bureau

$158 for 1 Month

I am a 41 year old female, married and have a good driving record. I have two trucks insured, one is a 2003, the other a 1997 and we own both of them. One is driven for pleasure, the other is a work vehicle, but it is not driven more than 20 miles in one direction. We have the minimum amount of coverage on both vehicles. We chose this because both are older vehicles and we don't feel that more insurance is needed at this time. When we get a new vehicle, it always has full coverage until we own it outright. We chose farm bureau because they had sent us information and it looked like they would be saving us some money. We switched over from AAA and have been very happy with both the savings and the service. We have been saving over 75 dollars a month.


$1050 for 6 Months

I have a good driving record with one accident and one ticket in the last 5 years. I am driving a 2013 Honda Accord and I am a 27 year old single male. I usually drive less than 8,000 miles in a year. Geico had the best price around when I bought the car. So far I have only had to file a small glass claim to repair a windshield chip and they handled that great. I gave 4/5 rating due to higher than wanted deductibles, but everything else has been great. I have full coverage with $500 deductibles. This is my only car and I have had Geico from day 1.


Amica has been fairly good to me, the rates have been competitive for years now and I really like the fact they allow me to have a 1 year policy. I have not filed a claim with them so I can't speak on that behalf however anytime I have wanted to make changes they have been extremely easy to work with (I did not get the same satisfaction from other insurance companies). My policy for 1 year is about $700 per year for one vehicle, it goes up to $1100 when I add a second vehicle (great savings). My driving record is perfect and the coverage has comprehensive but no collision. This also takes into account I only drive about 10 miles per day at most. House insurance was a little cheaper but decided to stick with my current provider instead of going through the hassle of switching. Insurance for my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002 Ford Explorer is great though, highly recommended. Review from a 39yr old single male.

State Farm , tim knapp

My car insurance is around $800 per year per vehicle. That is for full coverage including broadened collision. I pay every six months. My driving record is clean. The cars that I insure are a 2003 Jeep Liberty and a 2000 Dodge Dakota. I am female, 61 years old, married. I drive around 10,000 miles per year to and from work and for pleasure. I chose State Farm because that is the insurance that my husband had when we got married. We have made several small claims in the past for comprehension and State Farm is very easy to deal with. There is really nothing that I don't like about them. My previous provider was Allstate. We also insure our home with State Farm because we get a discount for having multiple policies.


I can't really complaint too much. The premiums aren't too high, so that is a plus. I have not had to make a claim since I started with them, though, so I can't comment on the claims process. I largely chose Progressive because they are affiliated with my homeowners insurance company so I received a discount for using them. Their website is easy to navigate and setting up the account and payment method was easy. OVerall, they have seemed easy to deal with so far, but I would have to revisit the score after I have to submit a claim. I pay monthly for my premium and my drivers record is good, no accidents and no violations. I insure once car through them and have full coverage on a new car.
