  • Safeco Insurance: Overall a Good Company

    Cons: Claim #3 as noted in the Epinion

    Summary: Shortly after my ex-husband and I divorced I contacted my agent to split our insurance into separate policies. At that time we had Pemco. He called me back and suggested I switch to Safeco Insurance, noting that doing so would save me about ... read more

    Nov 18, 2013 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clear policies
    Fuss-free billing
    Cons: High rates

    Pros: the word pros and SAFECO are on two different sides of the spectrum.
    Cons: customer service, quality, rip-off, prolonged time for everything

    Summary: I can not say enough awful things about this Safeco. For all the money I have dumped into auto insurance in the past 10 years, Safeco truly knows how to rip their customers off. I file a claim because an old man sideswipes my car door while I ... read more

  • Safeco Auto Insurance is the best.

    Feb 13, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Everything was done professionally.
    Cons: I actually can't say anything bad about this company. Everything was done well.

    Summary: I had so many different insurance companies and all of them are just too lazy to do their job. I had 2 accidents in the past 5 years, with my other insurance companies I had to call to report an accident and no one would really respond to me. With Safeco ... read more

  • Dishonest and Arbitrary

    Jun 7, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None, that I'm aware of.
    Cons: Dishonest, bureaucratic and arbitrary -- which may be par for the course for car-insurance corporations.

    Summary: My car got hit by a car driven by a hot-headed teenage boy insured by Safeco. I was making a legal left turn at a T-intersection after the light had turned yellow and I'd checked to make sure none of the opposite-flowing traffic was about to cross the ... read more

    Cons: I would have saved money having NO insurance

    Summary: My husband and I used to use an insurance broker who's job it was to shop around for the best price auto insurance whenever ours went up. We had the wretched misfortune to be signed up with Safeco. Our 17 year old son had his first fender-bender around ... read more

  • The worst service ever - and I'm not a customer!

    Jul 10, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Not a thing.
    Cons: Everything. Their customer service is perhaps the worst I've seen in any industry.

    Summary: The scene: A beautiful early summer day at the beach. We've just gotten back to the cottage and I'm in the shower. A car alarm goes off and my sister says - Hey - I need your keys. Someone just hit your car in the drive way. I get out of the shower ... read more

    Pros: Nothing
    Cons: Everything When You Have A Claim

    Summary: Dealing with Safeco insurance is something you must pray you never have to do. I was backed into by a Safeco customer. They were so friendly when I was contacted by their claims dept. The adjuster met with us and he was so friendly. He wrote me an ... read more

    Cons: Adjust rates after initial quotation. No customer service whatsoever. Poor website.

    Summary: Relocated from Pennsylvania to California and had no choice, but to change from a regional carrier. After some shopping around, Safeco came back with a somewhat better rate than the bigger companies. Now, my spouse had 2 fault accidents in last 3 years, ... read more

    Pros: Cheap rates.
    Cons: Cheap service.

    Summary: Let me start by saying this is NOT a biased epinion...I generally abhor ALL insurance companies and their highway robbery practices, so I'm an equal-opportunity insurance basher, however it is a necessary evil. When our car was still on installment ... read more
