City Rates

The whole part where we tell you that certain age groups and driver types pay different rates isn’t over yet. You may also get drastically different insurance quotes from top companies depending on where you live in North Dakota. Even though Grand Forks and Fargo are only a couple hours away from each other, you’ll still see a unique premium for both places.

Grand Forks$1,326.43

Some once-popular things have gone out of style, but one measure of popularity that never gets old is something called “market share.” This index shows the percentage of customers a company has compared to competitors in a region. Why it’s important for you is because it gives a wider perspective on a company.

We’ll show you how. Take Progressive for example. They insure 15% of all drivers in North Dakota—leading the state for most customers. They’re not the cheapest option though. North Dakota Farm Bureau offers premiums for more than $100 less a year than them, but they’re still the most popular car insurance company.

Other cheap options like North Star—the state’s 3rd cheapest option—didn’t even make the list for popular companies. This can tell you that cost isn’t all that goes into the equation when picking a company. Paying more for a policy might get you better coverage and customer service.

Just keep all of this in mind while shopping for car insurance so you have more insight into why customers are flocking to certain carriers.

Customer Complaints

Feel like you’re wasting your breath when you complain about a company? You’re not. All of those issues go into a “complaint index” which logs the percentage of customers who have had a negative experience with their insurance company. As you’re looking at this chart, know that lower numbers mean less complaints and higher number mean more unsatisfied customers. Allied, Nationwide, and MetLife are just a few of the top companies that have the least amount of complaints.

If you’re looking for an all-around great car insurance carrier, take this into account before you make a choice. If less customers complain, you’ll have better chances of being happy with the service too.
