I have not shopped for insurance in a long while. My agent is a dipshit and I think I could probably save some money on my government mandated extortion.

Who do you recommend and why?

Thanks.

Great rates, great service. Always treated me right. Got great reviews after Katrina and each weekly disaster (fire, flood) in California.

AMICA

They don't have a bunch of small shops set up wtih preditory operators charging laughable rates. They have regional offices located in major cities. This helps control cost.

Do an interweb search and see how people like them. They are rated well. We've had them for home and auto for about 6 years and the cost are low. We still shop around and for the coverage, they still win.

Good luck.

This.

Amica is also a "mutual" insurance company, meaning they are owned by their policy holders, so they are much more stable. You will find it hard to beat Amica overall.

I have Liberty Mutual for home, car, and moto. Treated us well through my wife totalling her car (her fault) and getting it paid out. We jumped a little but mainly as we really upgraded from her old car, but I wasn't really upset, very minor rise compared to what I thought it would have been. Gun friendly (let you pick the initial coverage limit but have to ryder anything more). Good all around company for us and I've been totally happy with them.

I found that I saved money on most of my policies or got better coverage for the same money when I switched to American Family. Not affiliated with them at all other than I am a happy client. YMMV, of course.

Amica is wonderful, but I don't believe they provide business insurance.

With business insurance, you're talking a whole new ball game. That gets into different territory and need to look at places like Sentry insurance that provide product and business liability.

NOT Allstate. My mom has Allstate and she has had a hole in her roof for weeks. The insurance agent doesn't return calls, the adjustor never looked at the damages, all in all it's a mess. She is comletely disgusted with them and now so am I.

So...to summarize. F*CK ALLSTATE!

I just got off the phone with them and am very impressed with their quotes for auto and homeowner's insurance. Assuming that they are accurate, I foresee another Amica customer in the future.

Thank you for the recommendation.
