Amica Insurance in Raleigh, NC with Reviews -

IAT Insurance Group
UPDATE: I emailed the executives at the company with details of why I was appealing the decision. Just under a week later, the adjuster called me back to say they would be paying the claim. Our car is now fixed.This company is really awful to work with. They are a group of insurance related companies and they have bad reviews all over the internet. We have direct experience of them denying a claim for a case where a driver pulled out of a parking lot and cut across a lane of traffic hitting our car in the process. They classified the parking lot entrance as an intersection. Even the police on site said it was the fault of the driver pulling out of the parking lot. They don't return phone calls, they don't pay out claims. Stay away from doing business with this company. The BBB rates IAT Group/Occidental an "F"

Crismond Insurance Group, Inc.
I recently switched to Crismond Insurance Group for my auto, homeowners, and General Liability Insurance for my business and I could not have found a better place. Between my auto and homeowners insurance, they saved me over $600 per year, with the same deductibles but I acutally got more coverage!!!! They also had the best premium for my business policy too and as this is my first time owning a business, they took the time to explain all the coverages to me in a language I could understand. What I do not understand about the previous review which had nothing but complaints, is why did you switch your business to them after all you claimed happened (calling you repeatedly before you were even a customer)? They must have done something right. They were overly nice to my family and I and went above and beyond any other insurance agent I have ever met. Something smells fishy to me....

Carmen Ritz - State Farm Insurance Agent
I came on this site because I have been so happy with my services with Carmen Ritz's agency. Really great staff and service. I highly reccomend them, as they were reccomended to me by a friend of mine who raved about them as well. Not only has Carmen personally helped me establish homeowners and auto insurance with the office but I also obtained life insurance with the office as well. All of the rates were good and I felt like the service was stellar. I had a claim that Patricia personally handled and I was really taken care of. I was paid out very quickly and they called to check up on me as well. I do think this office would go to bat for any of the clients, and I believe to have my insurances handled by this office long term.

Lauri Fair: Allstate Insurance
The agent Lauri Fair and her girls Frankie & Heather are the best ever!! They look for ways to save me money on my policies as we are always changing something but they don't seem to mind the changes. They tell me what discounts I qualify for and completely review my policy so that I know that I have the right coverages. I trust them and I feel like they are looking out for me. I absolutely love this agency!

State Farm Insurance
I love this office. I have been with Angela since 2009. I wrecked my car a month after joining with them and the office did everything they could to assist me. The staff is always courteous,professional and helpful. Angela is very hands on and I cannot recall a time when I wanted to talk to her that I could not. I would recommend them to anyone based on my experiences there!

Allstate Insurance Agent: John Catalano
Let me start by saying I've only wrote 2 other reviews in my life. These guys deserve to be the third. John, Heather, and Chris have given me the best customer service I have ever experienced. They tended to all my needs several times over the years. They have been prompt, caring and empathetic with me and my family. They give first class service.

I just switched my auto and homeowners insurance to this office based on a recommendation from my sister. She has been with this agency for several years and is very satisfied with them. They were able to save me a significant amount of $ on my insurance and gave great customer service in my opinion.

State Farm Insurance
Mary and her staff are very knowledgeable and passionate about the services they provide. I never really understood what my care and home insurance really did for me until I talked with Mary. I will always have my insurance with her agency.

Tips & Advices
By law, you need to be insured up to the minimum amount required in your state before getting behind the wheel of any car. Beyond that, your insurance needs will vary depending on your financial situation and the amount of risk you are willing to take on.
  • Full or comprehensive car insurance is the most expensive, but often the best deal for drivers who own an expensive car, those who commute frequently or anyone who lives in an area with extreme weather or high crime rates.
  • Drivers of less expensive or older cars usually save more by opting for the minimum required policy, along with some extra coverage if they can afford it. Since the cost of repairs might exceed the total value of an older vehicle, some owners forgo collision protection in favor of greater liability coverage or personal injury coverage.
If someone other than you causes an accident while driving your car, most insurance policies will still pay for damage, according to the rules that apply. However, it’s a good idea to check with the insurance provider to be sure this is the case. Regardless, either the at-fault driver or the actual policyholder will be responsible for paying for anything not covered by insurance. People who don’t own a car but frequently borrow or rent one might consider purchasing a non-owner policy to make up the difference.
Car insurance premiums might be tax deductible in certain situations, but only with the documentation to prove it. Insurance costs may be deducted as part of overall business expenses if you use that car for work-related travel. However, this does not generally apply to taxpayers who use the standard deduction when filing their income tax returns. If your car is used for business purposes often, save all insurance-related documentation, as well as receipts, invoices and other forms of proof that your vehicle expenses were for business purposes.
Car insurers set premium prices depending on every driver’s individual risk. A huge number of details are factored into every determination of insurance risk, so the cost of any two policies can vary widely depending on the driver’s personal attributes, accident history, location, vehicle type and much more. The type of coverage you choose also impacts what you pay - premiums for minimal liability coverage will almost always be lower than those of a universal coverage policy.
The cost of car insurance is highly variable, but according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, U.S. motorists pay around $900 per year on auto insurance.
