Five factors to consider
In addition to providing good customer service and competitive rates, the best auto insurance companies possess integrity. Look for a company that places priority on ethics and corporate citizenship as well as products and services. Here are five factors to consider:
1. The best auto insurance companies support your community
Nationwide's Corporate Citizenship Initiatives donate millions of dollars to worthy causes every year. During and after national or international catastrophes, we partner with organizations that provide relief to those who are affected. Nationwide also generously funds a range of programs through the American Red Cross, United Way and Feeding America.
2. You want an auto insurance company that acts in your best interest
After 80 years of helping people, we understand how an accident can take a toll on your life, your time and your emotions. That's why we work hard to give you what you need, including high-quality, low-cost replacement parts. And we work hard to make sure accidents don't happen in the first place. We support a national ban on texting while driving to reduce the number of driving while distracted (DWD) incidents, helping to save lives and money.
3. The best insurers innovate to make life better
Nationwide was the first insurer to develop a car insurance app for the iPhoneTM and iPod touch®. Thousands of people have downloaded Nationwide Mobile, which includes a convenient Accident Toolkit that guides you through the necessary steps following an accident and access to your account.
4. The best car insurance companies earn your trust
Nationwide takes protection of customer information and personal data very seriously. As a result, Nationwide Insurance was named a Most Trusted Company for Protecting Customer Privacy in 2010 by the Ponemon Institute, an information security research company, and TRUSTe, a web privacy certification organization.
5. Partner with a car insurance company that offers the best options
Nationwide offer comprehensive coverage options so you can customize your policy. Our Nationwide On Your Side® Auto Repair NetworkSM provides a written guarantee on the workmanship on the appraised and completed repairs. Nationwide® AutoWatch® lets you monitor your covered auto repair online. Our periodic On Your Side® Review makes sure you’ve got the insurance you need – and the discounts you deserve.
