Advantages and disadvantages of large insurance companies

Large insurance companies typically have more insurance products, competitive pricing and greater availability for customer service and claims. However, smaller insurance companies may offer more personalized service, may have cheaper rates for some coverage types and may offer more flexibility for policyholders. Depending on your circumstances and insurance needs, as well as your preference for customer interactions, a large insurance company may or may not be the best fit.

Advantages Drawbacks
More insurance products may be available Customer service may not be as personal as with a smaller provider
Longer business hours or 24/7 customer service Claim process may be longer due to higher volumes of claims being processed
Variety of policy management and claims options Larger companies may be less likely to gear policies toward the specific needs of regional homeowners

Advantages of a large insurance company

Large insurance companies have some advantages over smaller companies, which can include:

  • Multiple insurance products: If you are looking to insure everything with one company, you may find a wider range of insurance products with a large company versus a small company.
  • Customer service hours: Larger insurance companies usually have a greater number of customer service representatives, which allows for longer customer service windows of time and the ability to handle a higher volume of calls.
  • Multiple access points: Whether you prefer to handle your insurance business over the phone, online or through the app, large insurance companies typically offer multiple ways to access or manage your policy and claims whenever it is convenient.

Disadvantages of a large insurance company

Although there are advantages of using a large insurance company, there are some disadvantages to consider:

  • Lack of personal service: This may be true if the insurance company operates through a call-center model instead of the local agency model. In this case, you may have to call an 800 number to speak to a representative. It is unlikely your agent will have a longstanding history with you and your family, and you will not always be able to speak to the same person twice, except in some cases with an assigned claims adjustor.
  • Potential for long claims process: In the event of a natural disaster or large number of claims in an area or across multiple states, large insurance company claims may take a longer time to process.
  • Specialized coverage: Small insurance companies typically work closely with a local customer base and can provide specialized coverage recommendations to meet their needs better than larger insurers providing coverage to the entire country.
