FreeAdvice.com Launches Insurance Company Reviews

SAUSALITO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 15th – Continuing its mission to help people make informed legal and financial decisions, renowned consumer help site FreeAdvice.com has added Insurance Company Reviews of over 200 leading American auto, homeowner, life and health insurance providers. By visiting http://insurance.freeadvice.com/reviews/index.htm, consumers can access important information about insurance companies before they buy.

Each Company Review includes: Company History, Products Sold, States Licensed, Distribution Channels, Financial Highlights, Company Ratings, and Company Contact Information. In addition, each review includes “customer satisfaction” results and comments from current customers, submitted by visitors to FreeAdvice.com. The surveys collect information on overall customer satisfaction, likelihood of renewal, likelihood of referring friends and family, fairness of claims handling, and more.

“Every year, insurance companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising, to convince consumers that they are trustworthy and fair,” said Todd Chapple, Insurance Programs Director at FreeAdvice.com. How effective is this advertising? Said Chapple: “Consumers say they prefer to buy insurance from companies that they know and trust, even if it costs them more. However, most people know little about the insurers that they are considering, beyond what they see and hear on TV. The insurance company reviews at FreeAdvice.com are a free, independent source of information, helping consumers prepare to make an important investment in protection for their families and themselves.”
