Everyone is different, you have to shop around.

Seems like there would just be way too many factors to consider. What's best for one may not be best for someone else. Just my opinion.

I use Allstate, though, and I have for almost 20 years.

I check more often than that and I'm still quite satisfied.

Same here with Allstate. I already had Allstate for home insurance, and went with them for auto insurance as GEICO would not come down in prices. Like the Allstate switch commercial says, I saved a lot on both insurances.

One note: Allstate (as well as other insurances) will check your credit. Good credit equals lower rates.

Check complaints against any company you are considering.

I'd recommend first comparing policies from Liberty Mutual & Texas Farm Bureau. Chances are any comparison sites won't have either of these two listed. Their rates are far lower than any of the more commonly known insurers. I have dealt with both in handling claims, and have had no complaints against either one.

Texas Farm Bureau is comparable to Liberty Mutual on rates for homeowner policies, but much cheaper on automotive. Liberty Mutual is one of the few insurers that will write an automotive policy for 12 months, and they will pay for OEM parts being used on body repairs longer than other insurers (7 years if I recall correctly).

Do yourself a favor and at least get a quote from Texas Farm Bureau. Not only would you save yourself some money, the money you do pay will go towards helping a worthy cause, serving the interests of Texas farmers.

Thanks!
