Least expensive, same coverage

Outstanding company for Wayne county, mi residents looking to drastically reduce their premiums. Not sure at all how their formula is different for others but they saved me over $150 a month

Very reasonably priced auto insurance, no complaints so far.

Overall, Frankenmuth is a reasonably priced insurance company that is easy to start with. I would recommend this to friends with accident history or parents of teen drivers.

Inconvenience

Raises premiums without consulting, does not work well on homeowners claims. Better rates and notify of hikes.

If you have a claim and need to use a rental car the insurance agent handling your claim will set up your rental for you so you don't have to take the time to do so. If you want to pick out your own rental car agency that is allowed too. They work with some outstanding body shops to do the work for you. I was very satisfied with a claim I had a year ago when the wind knocked down a basketball hoop onto my car.
