Insurance Company Ratings

Insurance Company Ratings

Leif's Auto Collision and Service Centers handles tens of thousands of insurance claims. We know insurance companies! How your insurance company takes care of you after a claim is just as important as price. These ratings are a summary of our professional observations based on ongoing experiences and interactions with top insurers by volume. Where does your Insurance Company rank?


We are rolling out our insurance ratings information website in June that will, through videos, consumer stories and pictures, give you the facts about insurers to help you find what insurance is right for you.


(On a side note, Farmer’s Insurance and Nationwide Insurance continue to hold the dubious distinction of an F for their utter disregard for proper claims handling. We rate them as "do not buy."

Insurance Company Always uses factory parts without hassles  Explains all of the claim benefits to the consumer Pays for all of the claim without needing expert to help consumer Prompt claims response and claim settlement Lets consumer use shop of choice without hassles Recommends contract body shops
