Insurance Question from Bedford, TX

Asked on 10/17/2011

What are the top 10 home insurance companies in california I am looking for the leading companies by market share in california. Thanks!

Answer given on October 21, 2011

There are several lists of insurance companies in each state showing their market share and the ranking for service and claims. The Department of Insurance in the state may have a list as well as some independent rating companies, such as J.D. Power or Consumer Reports. Please be aware that rankings can vary by state, since there are different insurance laws and rules and compliance with those rules can affect the ranking of a company. The companies also may have more or less interest to write insurance in a certain state which can affect the marketshare or ranking.Because there are multiple lists, they may have differing results as they may garner the information in different ways or questions. If you are looking for an insurance company, you should talk to several insurance companies and/or agents to determine their knowledge and willingness to work with you. This may prove to be more helpful than to just check a list. You might also talk to friends or neighbors and see who they are insured with. Then talk to those agents or companies.
