Bottom line 

Arrowhead is an insurance broker that provides helpful specialty solutions to agents who are struggling to find coverage for certain clients. While the company’s product line is extensive, personal auto and home coverage are not currently available.

Perks Drawbacks
Provides numerous speciality insurance solutions Neither personal auto nor home coverage is currently available
May have options for hard-to-insure risks Coverage options will depend on the underwriting company and state

Founded in 1983, the Arrowhead General Insurance Agency provides solutions for agents looking to insure hard-to-place risks. While the company doesn’t underwrite its own products, there are several types of coverage available. Bankrate’s Arrowhead Insurance review takes you through the company’s offerings to help you understand if the carrier meets your needs.

Arrowhead car insurance

Because Arrowhead is a “general agency” and not actually a car insurance company, its auto policies were underwritten by other companies, not by Arrowhead directly. However, Arrowhead is no longer offering personal auto policies, although existing policies may still be in force in Alabama, California, Georgia and South Carolina.

Arrowhead car insurance cost

Arrowhead car insurance is not an available product right now, so average rates are not available. However, you can still get an idea of what your car insurance costs might be by analyzing average rates. Nationally, car insurance costs $1,771 per year for a full coverage policy. However, numerous factors make up your price, so your rate will be different based on your unique circumstances. The table below shows the average annual cost for full coverage insurance based on a number of driver profiles.

National average annual full coverage premium
Clean driving history $1,771
Speeding ticket conviction $2,138
At-fault accident $2,521
Adding a 16-year-old driver $3,852

Arrowhead car insurance discounts

Arrowhead’s car insurance discounts would have been dependent on the carrier’s underwriting company for its personal auto product. Because personal auto coverage is not currently available, discount information is also not available.

Arrowhead car services

Arrowhead did not offer any additional services related to vehicles. However, some commercial vehicle products are available, ranging from coverage for towing companies to coverage for ambulance services.

Arrowhead home insurance

Arrowhead home insurance, specifically HO-3 coverage, is underwritten by Universal North America Insurance Company and was sold in nine states. Just like with its car insurance product, Arrowhead is not actually a home insurance company, but rather a broker. However, the program is currently closed and policies are no longer being written. When it was available, coverage was fairly robust, with Universal North America offering several endorsements, including identity fraud coverage, seasonal or unoccupied home coverage, scheduled personal property coverage and home equipment protection. Coverage options may have varied by state.

Arrowhead home insurance cost

Because Arrowhead’s home insurance program is currently closed, no rates are available. However, the average cost of home insurance is $1,383 per year for a policy with $250,000 in dwelling coverage. Generally, the more coverage you need, the higher your premium will be. You’ll also pay more for added protections such as sewer backup coverage or service line coverage.

Dwelling coverage limit National average annual premium
$150,000 $980
$250,000 $1,383
$350,000 $1,887
$450,000 $2,351
$750,000 $3,414

Arrowhead home insurance discounts

Neither Arrowhead nor Universal North America Insurance Company lists home insurance discounts online.

Arrowhead home services

Arrowhead does not offer any additional home services outside of its home insurance product.

Other Arrowhead perks worth considering

Arrowhead provides solutions for numerous specialty products. These offerings include:

  • Dwelling fire (landlord)
  • Personal umbrella
  • Residential earthquake
  • Flood
  • Private events
  • Wedding

Various business and speciality insurance products are also available.

However, remember that Arrowhead isn’t an insurance company, it’s a “general agency.” This means that your insurance won’t be underwritten by Arrowhead itself. Your policy may come from one of several underwriting companies that Arrowhead uses, depending on the product you choose and the state you live in.

Arrowhead corporate sustainability

Because Arrowhead uses various insurance companies to facilitate its products, sustainability  programs will depend on the specific company sells your product.

Not sure if Arrowhead is right for you?

If you’re shopping for a new home or car insurance carrier, Arrowhead won’t be an option right now. That doesn’t mean you’re out of luck, though. There are plenty of options out there for a variety of different insurance needs.

  • Geico: If you’re looking for plenty of car insurance savings opportunities, Geico could be a good choice. The company offers plenty of discounts that could help you save. However, just like Arrowhead, Geico doesn’t underwrite its own home insurance policies.
  • SafeAuto: Arrowhead started by offering non-standard auto insurance coverage to high-risk drivers, but since it doesn’t currently write personal auto coverage, SafeAuto could be a good choice if you have a less-than-stellar driving record.
  • Erie: If Arrowhead’s array of home insurance endorsements is appealing to you, check out Erie insurance, too. The company is only available in 12 states and Washington, D.C., but offers a long list of add-ons for robust home insurance coverage.
