AutoinsuranceEZ.com Rating:Esurance has barely been around for two decades, but in that short amount of time it has grown to become one of the leading providers in the US auto insurance market. The company was founded in 1998 based on one very simple concept: If you cut out the overhead costs associated with paying insurance agents, renting out office space, and even paper billing, you have the potential to lower rates and still make a profit while passing along some savings to the customer. And that particular business model has kept them growing strong over the past several years.
As far as ratings are concerned, Esurance has a financial strength considered to be A+ (“superior”) by the financial ratings agency A.M. Best. In recent years, however, the company has had some trouble with customer service complaints. Although it looks like they have been working hard to improve their image and customer satisfaction (their BBB rating is now an A+ as of 2016), they still have over 400 complaints filed against them via the Better Business Bureau over the last 3 years.
