Allstate came in third place in our survey with an overall score of 90.3. The nationwide insurer was given a perfect five in claims processing, a 4.5 for customer service, and 4.25 stars for price. And though a score of 4.25 stars is anything but disappointing, it was enough to miss out on second place. Allstate's customers reported impressive renewal rates of 91 percent and 85 percent would recommend the coverage to others.
More than just a brand of tire
Allstate Insurance Company started at a time when people needed both insurance and reassurance: in the midst of the Great Depression. It was 1931 when Robert E. Wood, a retired U.S. Army Brigadier General and the Sears, Roebuck & Co. president and board chairman, started an auto insurance company. Allstate was named after Sears' then-popular brand of tires, Allstate.
It's been a pretty smooth ride ever since. With the popular slogan, “You’re in good hands with Allstate,” it is the second-largest home insurance company in the nation and serves more than 16 million households. Allstate provides a wealth of insurance coverage, especially focusing on auto, life and homeowner's insurance.
