Progressive Home Insurance Review

Progressive Insurance’s main focus is to provide auto insurance. But it does provide home insurance as an additional option for those who have an existing auto insurance account with them. Progressive Insurance does not directly supply this service but only underwrites the policy. The partner company varies according to location and if your area falls under its coverage. Since this is basically bundled with their auto insurance offer, it automatically falls under its multi-policy discount offer.

*** Progressive Insurance is quite thin when it comes to providing home insurance options. However, the company does provide excellent coverage for personal property such as jewelry, antiques and other expensive items. Peril coverage (floods, landslide, and earthquake) is also available as an add-on for their standard policies. It personal umbrella policy also provides additional coverage for liability claims that is a direct result of accidents in your property.

Bottom Line

Progressive Home Insurance offers basic and minimal coverage for basic dwelling structures. This includes standard homes, apartments, condominiums and mobile homes. The lack of coverage is also reflected in the limited amount of discounts available, and Progressive doesn't offer many discounts that are basically standard for other providers. However, the company makes up for this by providing great add-on protection options, better than average financial ratings, and excellent customer service.
