Biggest May Not Equal Best…
However, keep in mind that these homeowners insurance companies aren’t necessarily the best in terms of customer satisfaction or pricing, but rather the largest operating in the country, per NAIC data.
It also may not hurt to read an objective review or two, or simply brush up on the company’s history to determine if they’re the right fit for you.
Remember, the biggest company certainly isn’t the best, and if they’re advertising heavily on television, they may have to charge you more to compensate.
Unsurprisingly, some of the largest insurance companies are also the most expensive, despite failing to top the ranks of customer satisfaction surveys.
Top Homeowner’s Insurance Companies by Satisfaction
As you can see from the chart above, Amica Mutual was the top homeowner’s insurance company in 2018 in terms of satisfaction (per J.D. Power), which is certainly more important than size, assuming they’re financially sound.
They topped the chart for the seventh consecutive year, despite not being a top-10 insurer in terms of overall volume.
And Chubb and Erie ranked second and third for property claims satisfaction while only mustering a ninth and 10th spot on volume list, respectively.
State Farm performed relatively well by claiming the fourth spot, but Allstate, Liberty Mutual, and Travelers were all just considered average.
Which makes you wonder why consumers might be paying more for such coverage.
For the record, USAA scored the highest of all the companies, but isn’t actually included in the J.D. Power rankings because it’s reserved for U.S. military and their families only.
