Filing a claim with Progressive

Claims are an excellent measurement of value when purchasing home insurance. After all, if you faithfully pay your premiums, then you want to know your fire, theft, or windstorm claim will be handled properly.

Progressive (via ASI) makes it easy for their clients to:

  • File a claim online
  • File a claim over the phone: 866-274-5677

Both options allow you to report a claim whenever disaster strikes, whether day or night, weekends, or holidays. The carrier guarantees a claims adjuster will contact the client within 48 business hours of the submission of the initial claim.

We already know Progressive has the financial resources available to pay claims. So how well does Progressive perform when it comes to claims service?

Progressive reviews

Consumer Affairs awarded Progressive home insurance with 4.0 stars on a 5.0 scale. Looking closer at the feedback indicated, most of the 1-star reviews (29% of the total consumer reviews submitted) were related to the Homesite claims process. Customer experience will drastically improve with ASI stepping up to the plate. If you look at more recent reviews, it seems they are trending above the 4-star level.

Where is Progressive available?

Progressive offers insurance coverage in all 50 states.

Final thoughts

Overall, Progressive provides a reliable homeowners insurance package with reasonable rates. ASI will give future Progressive customers a better option than the previous choice: Homesite. With the rebranding to Progressive Home Advantage, Progressive is more equipped than ever to serve your insurance needs. If you’re looking for homeowners insurance that’s affordable with comprehensive coverage, you may want to consider Progressive.
