Is your home or auto insurance company better or worse than average? I review all the leading auto & home insurance companies in the USA, using each company’s customer survey results from recent JD Power insurance studies, as well as each company’s complaint record, to determine if a company is performing better than average, average, or worse than average, for customer service, claims, & price. How is your insurance company rated? Is its coverage competitively priced? Does it have a higher than average number of customer complaints?

iMingle offers home, condo, and renters insurance in addition to car insurance.

In December of 2010, I went to their Web site,, and received a great price for an annual policy. The main page of the Web site was unresponsive, but I had no problem once I accessed the Web site from another link. You can call 1-800-330-6463 if you have problems.

iMingle is owned by Unitrin, Inc., and has been in operation only since November 2010, so they do not have enough history to assess their claims handling. However, iMingle auto insurance is underwritten by the Unitrin Direct insurance companies. The Unitrin Auto Insurance Complaint Ratings can be viewed by clicking the link in this sentence.

The car insurance quote I received from iMingle is a very good price, so I will check back with them when my car insurance comes up for renewal.

Many people pay too much for their insurance because they never shop for better rates, or if they do shop, they don’t check the rates of enough companies. For a lot of people, the best auto & home insurance companies are the ones with the coverage they need at a lower price. With auto & home insurance, you don’t get better service or coverage because you pay more. Some of the best companies have competitive rates. Some companies charge twice as much as others for the same coverage. But no single company has low rates for everyone. You have to shop with all the leading companies, to find the company with the best coverage and best price for you.
