I'm not sure if this was posted somewhere on the boards, or if the info is available as part of the City-Data information, but the State of Hawaii DCCA just posted a comparison of insurance rates for homeowner/renter/auto insurance.

Home Insurance Rate Comparison — Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs

Good info imho for people asking about which companies offer the best rates etc for Homeowners/Renters and Drivers.

Great info, thanks.

But honestly, I was kinda looking forward to talking to Flo, at Progressive.

Not me, I want to do the "Like a good neighbor state farm is there" jingle, and summon me a bowl of nachos + Guiness.

Looks to me like the gecko has the island pretty well covered.

While I am interested in costs, I am also very interested in which companies pay claims. Not all of them do.

This is an excellent point, and one a person really needs to gather direct anecdata about to know for sure in any given region (stories from another state about the same company are completely moot, the national brands operate very differently in different places due to state laws, business models, and politics).

When we were getting homeowners quotes, USAA was one of the highest we got, mostly because the bank required hurricane insurance and USAA's is unaffordable. We went through dongbu because it was the cheapest. Though one can get USAA general hazard insurance and get the hurricane insurance elsewhere and although it will satisfy the bank, one needs to do their due diligence to see if losing the multi-policy discount is worth it.

I am getting ready to move to Oahu soon. I have found that you learn quite a bit by making a phone call. First, I called my present California car insurance company. They referred me to an affiliated company on Oahu. When I called them, they pulled my account up on their computer and gave me a quote. I will use this to compare with other companies, but I will probably stick with what I have. They have always played fair with me.
