Claim this Profile

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 Good

  • Coverage features
  • Price range
  • Service coverage
  • Discounts
  • Online support

Coverage Features

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.

  • Liability Coverage (Property Damage and Bodily Injury Liability) pays out damages to another individual and their property should the policyholder be at-fault. This covers damage to the other's personal property and loss of its use, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
  • Medical Payments Coverage pays a reasonable amount for necessary medical and/or funeral expenses should the policyholder or any passengers be harmed in an accident.
  • Collision Coverage pays for damages caused to the covered vehicle in the event of a collision with another vehicle or objects, as well as rollovers.
  • Comprehensive Coverage will protect the vehicle should a natural disaster occur, damaging the vehicle, as well as protection from theft, vandalism and colliding with animals.
  • Un/Underinsured Motorist Coverage pays for damages to the policy holder's vehicle caused by drivers without, or with little, protection. It also covers necessary medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering for the owner and any passengers injured in the event of an accident.
  • Car Rental and Travel Expenses Coverage helps pay for a rental when the damaged vehicle is in the shop for repairs after a collision. Daily allowances and limits vary by state.
  • Emergency Road Service is an add-on option providing members with towing, mechanical labor, gas and oil delivery, flat tire assistance, locksmiths, and even jumpstarts. There are two coverage options: Coverage H, which State Farm will carry the financial burden, or basic, which will provide the policyholder with a competitive rate negotiated by the company.

Price Range

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.

Service Coverage

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.

Discounts

  • Accident-free
  • Defensive driving course
  • Student away at school
  • Good driving
  • Driver training
  • Good student
  • Vehicle safety
  • Passive restraint
  • Anti-theft
  • Multiple-auto
  • Multiple-line
  • Drive safe and save
  • Steer clear

Online Support

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.

The Bad

  • Response time
  • Limited educational materials

Response Times

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.

Limited Educational Materials

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.

The Bottom Line

Ultimately, State Farm is a massive company that manages to make a personal connection with their customers through the availability of local agents. This is possible because of the sheer number of agents across the country, in every state and throughout Canada. This is a huge mark in their favor because it means customer have a personal connection with the company, which can make things less stressful in case of an accident or emergency.

State Farm rates are reasonable, though there are certainly more affordable options out there. They provide some good discounts, though some companies offer more extensive discount options. However, consumers are still likely to find what they are looking for at State Farm. Overall, the company offers stability, good rates and a personal touch, and despite being a massive company and they have managed to resolve thousands of customer complaints.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
