Harleysville Group is a large insurance agency which has been around since 1917. They started out by focusing mainly on insuring certain types of automobiles against theft, but have since branched out into a wide variety of different insurance products, both private and commercial. Although Harleysville is not yet available in all 50 states, there’s a pretty good chance that one of their independent insurance agents may be working out of an office near you.

Harleysville Auto Insurance Options

By law, Harleysville must provide you with the coverage you need in order to drive legally. This includes Liability coverage (both Property Damage and Bodily Injury) and whatever other form of coverage is required by your state. Beyond that, Harleysville offers the following extra types of coverage for purchase:

  • Audio, visual and data electronic equipment: applies to any permanently installed electronic equipment in your vehicle, such as car phones, CDs, VCRs, personal computers, TVs, “scanners” and CB radios. Your tapes, records and discs are also covered
  • Auto loan/lease coverage: Protect yourself against the difference between the amount due on a loan or lease and the actual cash value (before the damage occurs) of a “totaled” vehicle
  • Covered property coverage: Protects permanently installed equipment inside camper trailers (such as cabinets, tables, and appliances) in a similar manner to your Comprehensive & Collision coverage
  • Customizing equipment coverage: If you have a customized van or pickup, you can protect the special furnishings, equipment and decorations that aren’t included in your auto policy
  • Extended transportation expenses: Pays for any costs associated with renting a temporary vehicle (or other modes of transportation) due to your disabled vehicle. Also covers any expenses associated with replacing the replacement vehicle (pending your legal responsibility)
  • New car repair or replacement coverage: Purchase this coverage within 30 days of buying a brand new car in order to protect your vehicle in the event of a total loss accident within your first 5 years of ownership. The car will be replaced, minus the cost of the collision deductible, at no depreciation cost to you
  • Towing and labor costs: With this coverage, we will pay up to $75 (depending upon the state in which you live) toward the costs of towing your disabled vehicle or repairing the car on the spot where it breaks down or is damaged.

Comparing Harleysville Insurance Quotes

Any company can promise that you’ll save this much money or get that special discount before they get your personal information. But when they find out about details such as your credit score, your driving record, or your age, those promises can fly out the window.

Married Homeowners





It’s hard to say why Harleysville’s estimated rates are all over the place the way they are in the chart above. Perhaps the young female student qualified for a Good Grades discount, and/or is being charged less because females are believed to be safer drivers. Similarly, the married couple may not be bundling their Homeowner’s insurance with Harleysville and missing out on a money-saving discount by doing so.

Pros and Cons of Harleysville Insurance

Pro Con
Gives customers the freedom to create tailor-made insurance policies Not available in all 50 states
Bundled insurance policies come with a single-pay occurrence deductible for multiple property damage Higher than average insurance premiums in some areas

Harleysville has been operating successfully in the insurance industry for a very long time. They have strong financial strength ratings, and a good reputation with their customers according to the Better Business Bureau. However, the benefits you can expect to receive, along with the rates you can expect to be charged, will vary significantly from one geographical area to another. Feel free to call a local Harleysville agent to see what they can offer you – but don’t forget to compare their quotes to other providers who want your business.
