Good until your first claim, July, 2015
We had a claim from storm damage. After 12 years with this company and no prior claims, it should not have been a problem. They only paid about half of what the damage actually cost to get repaired. Couldn't understand the customer service agent and did not know what else to do. They said our rates would not go up because we had never submitted a claim, but a little over a year later, our policy skyrocketed. Of course they would not lower the rates. I am currently getting quotes and will not renew with Allied.
Poor Choice, December, 2014
Does not look in the best interest of client-does anything in order to raise rates-poor communication- - Very concealing in their actions
Abysmal Communication Rude Customer Treatment, July, 2015
Limb fell on our roof during heavy snow - Took weeks before anyone came to look and longer to remove - Removal subbed to 2 guys in a pickup who charged a lot and did not even haul away the huge limb - Adjuster from their "preferred" contractor said he was afraid of heights. Naturally the damage was assessed LESS than our deductible. Repairs done by another sub - patched even though roofer said the whole roof was damaged INcluding damages resulting from limb removal by the other sub. Agency in Ohio was rude and lacked basic knowledge of process and details - "supervisor" yelled at us over the phone when we complained that our email address had been give but never recorded several times. Rates have gone up annually on car and home. Policies were sold out-of-state a few years ago by local agency. Agency in Ohio, adjuster in Iowa, call center <= who knows? Response on claim required many calls and few call-backs. Allied may be "Nationwide" but NOT on your side.
stranded, February, 2013
We received a letter stating they were no longer representing the company and cancelling us. There was no help in securing new insurance. Emailed the agent, Gonzalez w/no reply.

i have been very satisfied with allied except for price. seems they have gotten expensive, especially on a duplex that we own in middleton
Exremely poor custimer service, January, 2015
Claim was handled very poorly and Company was very deceiving in what was going to be covered.
They are definitely not a Company you would want to be insured by.
Never filed a claim, but got cancelled, August, 2016
I worked for a government entity which operated a K-9 unit, and I boarded the dog at home. The government agency agreed to sign docs to assume liability arising from K9 issues, but Allied cancelled my insurance anyway. Went with another major insurance company which had no concerns.
Home/Auto Insurance, May, 2015
I have had Allied for 3 years now and have had 2 major weather related claims and one auto claim. We had straight line wind and cost $28,000.00 in damages to our house, Allied was out within a week and gave us a check that day to start the repairs. 10 months later we had a major hail storm, gold ball sized hail. This time the claim was $19,800.00 on home, totaled my car @ $9,900.00 and $7,500.00 damage to my wife's SUV. They again gave us a check on the day that the adjuster was there except for on the totaled car.
Every time I have had a great experience with my local agent and with the Allied adjusters. I highly recommend them. And best of all our rates haven't went up!
I highly recommend Allied for all of your insurance needs!
Homeowners, April, 2012
I believe that this is the best coverage for the money. I am very happy with this company. I will renew with this company if the rates stay competetive
insurance review, January, 2015
currently with allied no issues looking for better pricing
WAS NOT REAL HAPPY WITH THE CLAIM ADJUSTER. WAS A LITTLE UPSET WITH HOW THE CLAIM WASS TREATED.
Allied will drop you if you actually make a claim., January, 2016
My wife and I selected Allied for our home, auto, umbrella, and life insurance due to competitive rates. Sadly, after a short string of bad luck (one house and one car claim), Allied dropped us and failed to renew our policy. What kind of insurance company collects premiums all year, and then refuses to insure you in the future when you actually use the service they sell?
In the parlance of our times, Allied sucks!
Allied was great but we only hadand one claim because,the hurricane messed up a lot last and we had a lot to fix and they didnt give enough money,reason we are leaving because they are closing down,in november.
Good Jon, March, 2013
