    BE AWARE READ THIS BEFOR YOU SELECT ALLIED, September, 2015

    I hope I could give them negative star! I had 2 cars insured by them, my owned home and also a renter's insurance for home I had rented. I used to pay all premium at the beginning of my term so I don't have to pay monthly, and my balance was always positive.

    My wife had a minor accident in the car parking and naturally she exchange the insurance information! however, we realized that Allied had canceled our policy one month back due to $200 being under balance that was due to adding and cancelling a car and home at the middle of the insurance year.

    They had sent the notification to our former address (they had both old and new addresses in their file) I don't know why. and when we have not taking any action (how would we know!?) they cancelled entire policy. 2 cars and 1 house got cancelled all together! they have not even call us for notification! and we would not even know it until recent accident.

    I called their 1800 number, the guy was not polite and told me we cannot do anything about it.

    It is frustrating we pay this much of money to them and we wont receive any service.

    They offered me to renew the contract but I never go back to them again. This time we were lucky there was no injuries involved. We were driving our car 1 month and we did not know that we have no insurance!

    Do not go with this company at all

    Disappointed lack of follow through in policy., August, 2016

    More expensive, terrible coverage lack of knowledge by agents, terrible processing of claim policies that are different than everyone elses which causes more confusion. More paperwork which in turn does not allow for quick fix and use of investment.

    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.

    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.

    Liars & horrible people , November, 2015

    Since I left Allied, I had an old bill that they never paid. They absolutely are the WORST insurance company I have ever came across. They claim that they never received my bill from an urgent care. They claim that they have been trying to reach me for over a year. LOAD OF BS. I have never received any calls or ANY piece of mail from them. They are HORRIBLE and completely suck at customer service. SPECIFICALLY: ANNIE & DIANE from Claims Services. Do yourself a favor and just DO NOT get insurance with them.

    The Allied Insurance Scandal, February, 2015

    All communicable services were down at my restaurant and catering business during the busiest time of year. The 5 year old faulty wire was fixed at my location by a technician, in which Allied claimed it was at a substation. They proceeded to tell me that the wire fell under Wear and Tear that was excluded and my losses were not covered. I was declined a successful resolution for months. They lied to me, wasted my time, stole my money and damaged my reputation. “We are on your side,” is an absolute astonishing deceit!

    bait-and-switch, March, 2015

    I started with Allied in Sept of 2012 and my combined premium for home and auto was just under $900 for 6 months. By March of 2015, the combined 6 month premium was just under $1100. I made no claims on either policy during this time. When I asked, I was never given a reason for the increase. I feel I was baited with a more affordable rate to begin with Allied and then once on board, I was hit with unjustifiable premium increases. Get your insurance elsewhere.

    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!

    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!

    Dropped without notification, July, 2016

    I was with this company for close to 7 years. I used auto pay to pay my monthly bill on the 24th of each month. Well, I put money in my account late one month and I was unaware that my money wasn't drafted for payment. They dropped my service and reported $100 to collections with no notice! I had no idea I was driving without insurance... No calls, letters, emails. Oh and they dropped me after less than a month. This company had no employee loyalty.

    little costly but worth it when you need it, June, 2015

    Although Allied is a little more costly then other insurance companies we have had nothing but good things when we were in an accident. My husband wasn't paying attention and hit someone on a Saturday night. By noon the next morning we were in a rental car. We had the rental for 15 days with no problems. The customer service we received exceeded our expectations. The lady I talked to was so nice we were laughing together on the phone. When we needed them, they were there to help every step of the way!

    Unprofessional and out to get your money., September, 2016

    I have had a lot of Trouble cancelling my car insurance after I bought a new car and the policy I was given had an outrageous price. I was given no way to save money on my insurance either like the safe driver discount. I have switched insurance companies and called to cancel with Allied insurance. I spoken with one of their representatives that told me it was cancelled and everything was ok. I get A bill in the mail stating my account was suspended from Allied insurance and a $10.00 fee was added I was like I cancelled it so no worries. I get another bill in the mail stating my policy was cancelled on Aug 29, 2016 when I called and cancelled Aug 4, 2016. On top of it all now I have to re contact them and explain to them that I should not owe them money. Overall I would not recommend Allied Insurance to anyone because this company is clearly unprofessional and is out to get your money.

    Seems good when you purchase. Trouble are starting after first claim. But not easy to solve it. Waiting time over the phone with customer service - 45-55 min, no answers over support e-mail at all. Don't have anything positive to say.

    Just stay away.

    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.

    Bad faith management, September, 2016

    Allied/Nationwide has been horrible to deal with - tried to force me to use their repair shop, stalled on inspecting the vehicle, refused to cover uninsured driver incurred expenses (car rental & deductible) stalled on paying out on a totaled vehicle. Delay, delay, delay. That is their modus operandi. Harassing me non-stop about my physical condition. Thank God I have other options and the wherewithal to cover it for now.
