Grange Insurance?

Does anyone have any experience with this company?

We're back in the home & auto insurance market due to moving back to our home state. We've talked with 3 agents and the best deal is an independent agent's quote from Grange.

We've never heard of them. I guess that's good; they're not spending tons on advertising.

You might try PMing Brewer12345 to see if he has heard of them, in case he missed your post.

Re: Grange Insurance?

Hmmm, financially they look fine based on a brief look at their numbers. Rated A by AM Best, which is good. They are a mutual, which is also a plus in my book. Can't speak to service, but you could look at your state's insurance department website to see how they stack up on complaints. I'd do business with them for auto or homeowners' insurance.

Re: Grange Insurance?

I have had Grange Insurance for 10 years, no problems. I had one claim (first ever in my life) when we had a huge storm and water got in somehow, coming down thru the ceiling in the dining room, plaster failed.

They didn't even come out, they just asked me the size of the room and sent me a check. They said it I could get it fixed for less I was welcome to keep it. I made $800 on that.

Re: Grange Insurance?

Thank you very much for the input.

I've checked the state insurance commission website and written for more information also.

Re: Grange Insurance?

The state insurance commission also recommended the National Association of Insurance Commissioners's website for complaint information.

Re: Grange Insurance?

Nifty. I forget that the NAIC typically has lots of stuff at their site. I would pay more attention to the complaint ratio, rather than the # of complaints.
