Who are the most popular Arizona car insurance carriers?
Market share shows the percentage of customers a company has compared to rivals. It can also show you how a company is doing as a whole. For instance, our data shows that State Farm is pretty pricey compared to other providers, but it has the largest market share in Arizona. Some of the cheapest providers in Arizona such as MGA and Titan don’t make the top ten for customer popularity. The Hartford which is one of the cheaper options only holds a small portion of the state’s insured drivers too.

This could mean that people are paying more for coverage if it comes with better options and customer service. Take a look to see how popular Arizona insurance companies are and decide for yourself.
What are the customer satisfaction ratings?
