The New York State Department of Insurance (DOI) just delivered the 2008 Annual Ranking of Automobile Insurance Complaints. The report has been given to help customers discover the vehicle safety net provider that best addresses their issues. You can utilize this report to analyze the positioning of the insurance agency you are working with now, or check another organization you might be thinking about.

This report examined information gathered from 2006 and 2007. It just positions organizations working together in the State of New York. Be that as it may, as New York is an intensely populated state, with both enormous metropolitan places and huge rural territories, the report can be viewed as a decent portrayal of insurance agency execution from one side of the country to the other.

How The Ranking Works

The insurance agencies are positioned on a protest proportion. The proportion is determined by the quantity of grumblings maintained against organizations as a level of their all out private traveler auto business.

Safety net providers with the least maintained grumblings per million dollars of expenses are appeared at the first spot on the list. The organizations with the most elevated proportion of grievances are positioned at the base.

Other Information to Consider

The positioning of an insurance agency is significant, yet it is just a single trademark that customers ought to weigh when considering working with an insurance agency. Others are:

o Referrals from companions, family members, neighbors or colleagues about the encounters they had with their insurance agencies

o Price of the premium versus saw esteem

o Search the Internet for different thoughts

o Check your state’s DOI site, which may contain important customer data about organizations working together in your state.

What The Ranking Does constantly Not Contain

o Private traveler protection is the solitary kind assessed.

o It just incorporates the protests alluded by buyers to the DOI. It does exclude objections made straightforwardly to the insurance agencies.

o Complaints are “maintained” when the DOI concurs with a buyer that an insurance agency settled on an unseemly choice.

o Information from earlier years is remembered for the tables so buyers can check whether the organization has improved or deteriorated.

o All organizations with at any rate $10 million in premium in 2006 and 2007 are remembered for the positioning. Guarantors with under $10 million were incorporated on the off chance that they had at least 10 grumblings against them.
