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.

They are awesome! They give me a big discount on my bill because I have good grades and that helps a lot with the cost
We had State Farm home and auto insurance for many years. The customer service was very good, but their price was not as competitive as we felt it should be.
I started with State Farm. Never had to make a claim, but my rates went up without a change in driving history or anything. Ended up switching.
I was in an accident, twice. There were very helpful and making sure everything was taken care of successfully. They even gave back my deductible.
State Farm is a long standing reputable company and as a policy holder for both auto insurance and homeowners, the bundled discounts are great! When I had a car do a hit an run on me, the insurance company was able to hunt down the diplomat who hit my car and got my money back for the insurance deductible. The cops hunted for a month took State Farm 2 weeks.
I have been with State Farm for about 16 years. The experience has been amazing thus far and I do not plan on going anywhere else. My agent is always open to answering my questions and generating quotes when I am in the market for a new vehicle. I feel that I have very good rates and don't see myself taking my business elsewhere.
The best thing I like about State Farm is how easy they are to use their agents are super friendly and their payout was great on accident we had about a year ago. Would highly recommend! We receive payment very quickly as well.
We have been using State Farm for our car insurance for many years. We have been happy with our coverage and the customer service we receive.
State Farm has come through for me and my family time and time again! Love them!
State Farm was ok the only problem I had was when I tried to talk to my agent he was never there and would not return my calls. I ended up changing insurance agencies because of it.
We love State Farm. We have had other insurance companies be quick to drop us when we filed claims. State Farm generally does not drop clients. The agency we use is so positive and helpful all the time. Their prices are also better than many other companies we have had quotes from.
We had a very good experience with State Farm, and only left because we were able to get a bigger discount through another company. But we never had any problems with claims, and our agent was very helpful and knowledgeable. They offer extra benefits to people who stay with them long term, which makes me wish I hadn't left.
State Farm continually upped our fee and eventually kicked us off insurance for a speeding ticket.
I used them for a bit and I guess they were not bad but I prefer my current insurance provider. The good thing about them is the customer service.
State Farm was great! Until I got in a car accident and they kicked me out of the insurance. Other than that it was great while it lasted, they did cover the accident!
I like their personal service and attention to details. I felt like they had my best interest at heart. When we purchased our house, they had a great discount for bundling car and home. They are a little more pricey than other companies.
I have been a State Farm customer for 27 years for both home and auto. During that time I have had a handful of claims and each time they have been handled very professionally and in a timely manner. Every now and again I am tempted to switch companies to find a cheaper rate but then I am reminded by others’ experiences that you typically get what you pay for when it comes to reliability and customer service.
Used them for awhile until I had to file a claim and then they seemed to avoid me and not want to help me so I switched to another company.
Never had a problem with any claims. My agent is great. Prices seems in line with other insurances particularly if you have other insurance lines (i.e auto + house).
They’re very easy to work with and they have great customer service when you get your local agent. Too pricey to have kept them though.
Our agent was really bad. We ended up swithcing to all state because they charged us an extra $200 a month, and then it took years to get that money back to us.
I've been a customer fro 10 years and never had an issues. My rates have steadily decreased, and even when i've shopped around, no one can beat the rate I am currently given.
We have State farm insurance and have been with them for almost 20 years! I know they are a little more expensive, but it is worth it! Claims agents are amazing!
State farm agents are always friendly and happy to help with anything! Claims are processed so quickly and bundling insurance together through them makes it affordable!
State Farm is a good company and have been good to work with. Our State Farm agent is particularly good. With teenage drivers, their prices seem a little high, but when we compare with other insurance companies, they are generally quite competitive.
I have been a customer of State Farm for almost 20 years. Their service and products are great. One of my favorite coverages is glass coverage. Often time my windshield will get a crack or chips from road hazards. State Farm covers this 100% for me with no deductible. It is great to have the kind of service. My agent is also great. She has taken care of me and my family for many years.
Costumer service is very good. They have helped me with every need I've had. Offices everywhere.
Quality and service is okay. Seem to be higher priced, not sure if that equates to better value.
We have been so happy with State Farm. We've been with them for over 20 years and they've been great to work with whether the accident was our fault or the other drivers. When our van was totaled they gave us a fair price that we were happy with.
We've been happy customers for 25 years! Fast, friendly service that we can count on. We've taken our coverage across 5 states and haven't had an issue.
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.
