Customer Experience

Customer Experience - 9 / 10

Allstate wins higher marks than nearly all of its competitors for its billing practices. In all other areas, it is on par with the other majors. Considering its size, Allstate did not have very many BBB complaints lodged against it. Though it has had some NAIC complaints, its complaint ratio is quite low. This suggests that the company is in line with industry averages for customer service as a whole.

Most homeowners will find Allstate's premium prices squarely in line with those of other major, well-established US insurance companies. However, for some customers Allstate can offer insurance at much more competitive prices than their competitors. This is particularly true for homes more than eight years old (HO8 policies) with unique features that may be difficult or expensive to insure with other carriers.

La Porte, Indiana

We had damage from lost shingles due to repeated storms. Apparently water was coming in from the hole in the roof, running down the inside of the wall and eventually caused a hole in the ceiling of a bedroom. As soon as we saw water dripping from the ceiling and then a hole, we called. In the matter of a few days mold started to grow. This happens with moisture and heat. It's winter, there's going to be heat. It took nearly a week for them to respond with an adjuster and when he called the first thing he said was "did you read your policy?" WTF does that mean?! We called as soon as we saw damage. He scheduled a day and due to more storms we rescheduled as we didn't want him to climb onto... Read More

I was a Allstate Customer for almost 10 years. A decent service when I lived in NJ, but horrible experience in PA offices. PA Agent closed the office, and Allstate never contacted for assigning me other agent, I have to chase one and another always receiving the same answer... I am not your agent but I will make you a favor to solve your problem!!!. This is a Company that really do not care about the people just the pocket of the people. Very expensive policy cost increasing with not good reason year after year.

They are terrible if you have hail damage on the roof. They refuse to pay for damages claiming that the damage is only cosmetic.

They're bad when it comes to claiming roof repairs. The roofing company I talked to does not even recommend All state because they always deny claims!!! Not recommended!

I've been with Allstate for over 13 years since I bought my house and have never filed a claim. I was informed less than two months before my renewal I was going to be dropped for "peeling paint".
