In addition to age, auto insurance providers consider factors like your driving record and credit score when assigning insurance rates. If you have a poor credit history or a bad driving record, you may be able to lower your annual premium with insurance discounts. Many insurance companies offer discounts for bundling your auto insurance policy with a homeowners insurance or life insurance policy. Some companies also offer a discount for taking a defensive driving class or setting up automatic payments and paperless billing. There are a wide variety of insurance discounts, so make sure to ask about them when you are comparison shopping for quotes.

What are the most popular Maine auto insurance providers?
What we call “market share” you can think of as popularity. It means the percentage of customers a company has compared to competitors. It can actually tell you a lot about a company by looking at it.
State Farm is Maine’s most popular auto insurance provider and has the most customers out of any other company. It’s not listed as one of the cheapest providers, but it does score well in the section after this that talks about customer satisfaction. When looking at a company and its market share, pay close attention. Usually people flock to certain companies because of service and coverage, but not always price. It’s just something to keep in mind when you’re shopping for auto coverage in Maine.

Which auto insurance companies have the most customer complaints?
A“complaint index” records the percentage of complaints versus a company’s market share. What’s important to know here is that the lower numbers zero being the best mean low levels of complaints. Amica and Quincy have Maine’s best auto insurance complaint index, while Amtrust and Farmers have the highest. If you’re debating between insurers, go with the one with the lower complaint index for a better chance of being satisfied with the service.
|# of Complaints||Complaint Index|
|MMG Insurance Company||2||0.6|
|The Hanover Insurance||3||0.9|
|Hartford Fire & Casualty||2||1.2|
|Auto Club Enterprises Insurance||4||1.4|
