State Farm is one of the nation's leading insurance companies as they have been around the block a time or two in their 92 years of service. One of the leading aspects of the company is their network of agents across the nation and Canada, and also that they take pride in serving others, such as taking part in community help efforts across the nation.
The coverage options are fairly thorough and should meet the needs of most consumers. All of the essential options are available, from liability and medical payments to car rental and emergency road service. Besides auto insurance, State Farm offers a wide range of other types of insurance and services to cover home, property, health, life and many other needs. In fact, there's very little they don't offer. Besides insurance, they also offer a wide range of banking and financial services.
Despite being one of the largest insurance companies on the market, State Farm manages to offer reasonable rates ranging from $184 to $230, which puts them in line with smaller, more aggressive insurance companies. They also offer a few good discounts, such as vehicle safety, safe driving, multiple lines, and good student discounts that can save policyholders a good bit of money on their premiums, while encouraging good driving and responsible behavior.
State Farm offers their products and services in all 50 states and throughout Canada, with 18,000 agent offices. Prospective policyholders are going to be able to find an agent somewhere nearby, so sitting down face-to-face to discuss policy options is easier with State Farm than with almost any other insurance company. For people who prefer to deal directly with another human being, it's hard to beat State Farm.
Most websites that aggregate reviews of State Farm products and services give the company higher than average marks. The most common praise seems to be directed at State Farm agents who often go out of their way to help customers. Many people love having the personal connection with a local agent who is available to answer questions and meet needs at a moment's notice. This certainly helps to eliminate the feeling that customers are dealing with a big faceless organization. Overall, this seems to be a particular strength of State Farm.
State Farms receives many compliments online about the hard work and personal touch of local agents, but there have been hundreds of complaints across a number of websites about the response time from claims representatives. It seems that many claims have been processed slowly. Though it is difficult to tell just how common this problem is, there are enough complaints about it that consumers should be aware of this. It might be possible that once you go beyond the local agent, the sheer size of the company becomes a problem, and some customers feel like they get lost in the shuffle at that point.
Online, State Farm has a learning and resource center that is helpful but a bit on the slim side compared to the websites of many of their competitors. While it offers a good deal of basic information about many of their products and services, it could certainly go into quite a bit more detail. Perhaps they expect local agents to fill in these details, but for those who like to do their research online, they will wish there was more available on the State Farm website.

When my husband was rear ended we called our State Farm rep to have the car repaired. I was given a list of phone numbers to call and had to run to several different locations to have the car adjusted, then arrange for the repair. I was also responsible to arrange the rental car and pay the shop. Once they got the check I was reimbursed, but it was a HUGE hassle. For what I may every month for full coverage it was not very consumer friendly.
BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE! Hands down. I was hit by a car (their fault) and State Farm took care of me when the other drivers insurance would not respond to my calls. They went above and beyond. They took care of me getting my car back and going and then on their time, went after the other drivers insurance. I can't recommend them enough. I will forever be with State Farm.
We were able to get insurance for our second home (a cabin), which is not easy to do with most insurance agencies. They were very helpful in combining all our insurance needs into one.
Local agent was very helpful in getting fast quotes. On my first auto insurance policy, the agent knew me by name, called on my birthday, and cared for me as a customer.
My vehicle was getting older and I had no violations on my record but State Farm kept raising my rates. What seemed to be a great deal when I was comparing rates ended up costing me a ton more.
Always beats our competitors price, we can never change our policy because we have such a great rate.
When we first got married my husband had insurance with State Farm but I had it with a different company. We kept it that way until his renewal came up and then ended up switching his to mine because the rates were a little cheaper. They were a good company, we just went with the lower payments.
Great customer service, fast service and reliable.
We have had State Farm insurance for all our children’s cars. There is always someone available and willing to help in the customer service department.
My car insurance has been State Farm for many years. Overall, I've always had a great customer service experience with them. I’ve had to deal with them and I never had an awful customer service experience.
Great customer service. Always looking for ways to save money with better coverage.
State Farm offers competitive rates for families with teen drivers and a great customer loyalty incentive that reduces rates for customers who stay with them for longer terms. They provide a local presences with assigned insurance agents in brick and mortar offices in your community. The billing is handled professionally through corporate headquarters and your customer service experience can vary depending on whether or not you call the 1-800 number or your local insurance agent. The financial stability of the company is strong to indemnify catastrophic events.
Good company but sometimes Sales Rep are not.
I can’t complain about the service but the rates aren’t always the best. Trustworthy company.
I have used state farm on two separate occasions including for my car insurance now. They have always been friendly and provided good service. When i did need help they were available and helpful.
A great company. Helped us many times and did a great job.
I was in a car accident, where a truck pulling a trailer swiped my car. Having never been in an accident before I was unsure of how to proceed. I called State Farm to report the incident and they walked me through the entire process and kept in contact with me. I was happy with how they handled the situation.
Excellent Customer Service- I talk to a live human every time I call.
I liked my agent, but prices frequently increased and, at one point, they stopped writing insurance in my state. To my knowledge, they don't have local claims offices. When big storms hit our area, we were dealing with many people who were not familiar with our state. I found that others were getting better service with a local company.
We insured many cars at the same time and had a couple of accidents. They always took care of our family.
Agents seem to come and go because I heard from them often when we became a new account, but haven’t heard from them since. I suppose that’s okay since I don’t like being bothered, but the silence is suggesting the agent is gone and I’m now the property of the greater company. I like paying online and the response during the claim process.
We have had a great experience with State Farm. Their customer service is excellent and when we bought our car, our agent suggested we go through State Farm for our financing and they were able to give us the best interest rate!
I liked my agent, but didn't like that the rates continued to go up. Also, the initial rates aren't very competitive compared to what is given. There's definitely no accident forgiveness!
Great friendly service. Always ready to answer any questions we have when we call. Their website is very helpful. Anytime we have needed to file a claim, it was a smooth process.
They have always been reasonable in pricing and never seem to not want to help us save money.
Good rates, good customer service
We have been with State Farm for 15 years and are pleased with their service. They keep us updated on discounts that we are eligible for.
The coverage was solid. The one time we had to file a claim, it was processed quickly. We had a great experience with our agent, but it was a bit pricier than other insurances.
I have had State Farm since I was 16. I have had 2 different agents, both very knowledgeable and readily available. We were very happy with the outcome after our car was totaled a few years ago. It was fast and pain free.
We have had State Farm in the past, Our agents have always been very helpful and nice. Just the rates were to high.
State Farm agents are very friendly and seem to always go out of their way to help you when needed with follow up and closer. Service is outstanding!
I have been with State Farm auto insurance for the past 18 years. What’s your name I have only been in one accident. Mike was Amazing through the entire situation, and treated me more like family than a client. Having a son that will turn 16 soon, I am confident I will get the best rate and the best service through State Farm
State farm is a very reliable insurance company.
State Farm Auto Insurance is my all time favorite insurance company and I will be with them till the end.
State farm is a good auto insurance. My car tire blow out on the free way and called my auto insurance for help. It took about hour half to get help. Service was fast and we didn't have to get out the car to fix the tire.
We have been with State Farm for over 25 years. They provide our personal insurance needs, as well as those of our small business. Their prices are competitive and fair. We have had several claims over the years, (with a few teenage drivers), and they have always been dealt with quickly, and fairly. Our State Farm agent has become a family friend, and someone I can count on to be there, day or night no matter what the situation. I feel so grateful to know that our insurance is handled by true professionals who care about the people they serve.
State Farm Auto Insurance is the best insurance company around. I have had them for many years and they have always come through when I needed them.
Overall I had sub-par experience with State Farm, however there were some glaring issues that were very annoying. 1. My premium raised three times in about 15 months, for no apparent reason that could be explained to me as I had no violations or any change in driving habits. 2. For a claim, I was told that they would not cover my hood because of previous hail damage, however that information was not disclosed to me when I started my policy and met with my agent. 3. In regards to that claim, I was told I couldn't speak with my agent and that I had to work with somebody else, which made me question why I had an agent in the first place! Overall, the insurance was expensive and the price only continued to rise, and the most positives that I can give, is that they paid out my claim for damage quickly. I also realize that this might be an experience with a bad agent, but It's going to be a long time before I look back into State Farm.
Paul is our agent and his staff are so very kind, and explains every little detail.
Bad customer service..price went up over $1000.
