I need to change my tags over to Texas and was wanting to know of any good/reasonable auto insurance companies in the area. My current insurance is Nationwide, but I will need a new agent and policy.
Or at least the ones to stay away from.

Try Germania. We switched to them about 12 years ago for our home, farm, and auto insurance, and, as the other insurance agents who've thought they could beat their rates and service have told us, "Never mind. Germania's a whole 'nother breed of cat!"

We've been delighted with their service, their responsiveness to claims (hey, when the F5 came through Jarrell, even though we weren't in the impacted area, THEY called US to see if they could come out just to check and make sure we didn't have any damage), and their prices (considerably lower than everyone but USAA).

Do you want a local agent or would you be OK with a 1-800 type company? We signed up for 21st Century when they first started in Texas a few years ago. I did some research and they had been around in the Western States for quite a few years. We took a chance because their auto premium was almost half of the premium we were paying with Safeco. I had a claim with them (a deer hit me!) and I was perfectly satisfied with the service I got. We have Nationwide for home insurance and their quote is almost $200 more for a 6 month auto policy and that's with the discount I'd get for having both home and auto together. I am one of those people that would pay a little extra if I thought the service was worth it, but I've been perfectly happy with them. You should at least check out their website.

I use Farmers Insurance for both my house and cars. Plenty of local agents around and I'm happy with both the price and service. Even had my tractor insured through them.
