What is Amica car insurance?

Amica sells auto coverage for drivers in all states but Hawaii. In addition to car insurance, Amica offers homeowners, life, marine and personal excess insurance. It also provides several discounts, as well as dividend policy options. Its dividend policies return 5% to 20% of the policy premium. Amica also offers some free services, including lock replacement, air bag replacement and glass repair, and it’s received multiple awards from J.D. Power and Associates.

How does Amica auto insurance work?

Amica insurance provides auto insurance policies at two levels:

  • Amica’s Basic Service plans provide collision and comprehensive coverage, roadside assistance and limited glass and rental car coverage.
  • Amica’s Platinum Choice includes accident forgiveness, which gives policyholders points for clean driving records, multipolicy coverage and client referrals, then directs the points to lower costs in the event of an accident. Platinum Choice also provides full glass repair coverage, identity fraud monitoring and $5,000 toward rental car coverage.

You can choose between dividend and nondividend policies; dividend policies cost more upfront, but because they repay 5% to 20% of the premium, they can be cheaper overall.

Amica auto insurance quotes and rates

Amica doesn’t provide car insurance pricing info on its website. You can request a quote over the phone or online. Many factors affect auto insurance costs, including car type and year, as well as the age, gender and driving history of the driver. Amica offers discounts for those who pay in full, choose electronic statements, enroll in autopay and purchase more than one policy from the company. Contact a customer service representative for more information.

When I started with Amica in 2011 I was a happy customer. I will admit that I always got great service with Amica and the staff was helpful. Over the years my car and home insurance ballooned to over $1000 a month. I was able to save over $500 a month by going with another carrier. So if you are with Amica, you should shop around. We did have a roof claim, but my insurance was already at this level when that happened.

Beyond cost, here are some other annoyances with Amica: My daughter slid off the road on an icy night and we called Amica for help through their auto club. They claimed that since this was a minor accident they would not send a tow truck. When else would you need an auto club but with a breakdown or accident? After talking with other insurance agents, Amica had me underinsured me on my home by $200k. However was charging more than double the competition.

I upgraded my motorcycle to the same type but with more features, and asked Amica to insure the new bike. They declined saying they didn't insure that type any longer. I also found out that they were charging me 3X what most carriers charge for the type of motorcycle I had previously. So Amica doesn't appear to be the awesome carrier they used to be. If you are currently using them, I highly recommend you get a bid from the many name brand carriers that are out there. You will probably save significant money.

Had Amica for 35 years. Then had my first automobile accident that was the other party's fault. The other party didn’t have great coverage so after hiring an attorney I had to sue my insurance company. Despite having $1 million dollar policy, a head injury, diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, post concussion, PTSD, constant migraines plus episodes to name only a few of the injuries. My mother died from the same injuries a few months later. After 5 years and still making no progress toward a settlement we decided to settle. I received $30,000 and my Mom’s estate received $10,000.

When I called Amica to ask a question the representative was so rude and unkind. In all the 35 years I had them they never treated me that way. But after the accident, it was night and day. We changed our insurance and despite the great reviews it showed us that things are great until you get into an accident then forget, they will throw you under the bus. We could have gone to court and dragged this out another 5 more years but we wanted to move on with our life.

    I’ve been with Amica for 5 or 6 years now. Up to now I’ve been very happy with them. I just traded cars and when I called to switch over the policy I was informed that the cost to insure the new car was less expensive than the policy for the old one. I asked if I could increase my coverage by decreasing my deductible to $100. In doing so my monthly rate would still be a little cheaper. I wanted $100 deductible for both Comprehensive and Collision and I was assured that what I got. I didn’t take the time to read over the new policy so I didn’t notice that they only set my Collision deductible to $100 and left the Comprehensive at $250. Fast forward 4 weeks and while on a trip to FL in the car a tractor trailer threw a rock and broke my windshield. I wasn’t really happy about it but I felt a little better knowing that I was covered.

    I made the claim for Safelite and was then informed that I’d have to pay $250 out of pocket deductible for the repair. Ugh, I was blind sided by that and when I called Amica they basically told me too bad, so sad. To make matters worse Safelite used an Aftermarket windshield. It does not have the Honda brand etched into the glass. They also didn’t install the trim pieces correctly and the right side wiper arm was installed at the wrong angle. I had to spend about 30 minutes reinstalling things correctly. I just don’t like that a new car that I haven’t even made the first payment on now has an aftermarket windshield. I know it’s just glass but it looks different and now the car feels substandard and used. Way to go Amica!

    I purchased a house last year and decided to go with Amica for both home and auto because of its stellar reviews on various sites, especially those about its customer service. I am extremely frustrated that they have not lived up to these reviews. My family and I were rear-ended in standstill traffic on the Bruckner Expressway by a large rental truck in July. My handler, Megan Whitlatch notified me that claims with commercial companies typically take months to settle.

    Without going into too many details, I'll say this: my correspondence with Megan is only through messaging since she does not answer her phone nor does she return calls (which is fine, since I'm ok with messaging), but her responses are very generic and scripted. She will not answer a question directly. In short, she notified me 2 months later that the other party did not have insurance, thus Amica now has to "go after" the driver and it was not "looking good" for our case.

    Insurance is not my area of expertise, but something did not add up. I decided to do my own research and found out in less than 30 minutes, that the other carrier did indeed have insurance! I called Amica back and spoke with a supervisor, Margaret **, who initially was a bit patronizing and insisted Amica did their best to connect with the other party, but was unsuccessful and are still "waiting". Her tone changed when I told her that I have a copy of the Certificate of Liability Insurance, which I got in less than 30 minutes of making a few phone calls. Additionally, she had the audacity to ask if I got the handler's name!

    I understand things take time and that there's a process, but I executed something in less than 30 minutes that took them 2 months to complete and still failed.

    Amica hasn't lived up to their half of our contract and left me worried that I have to pick up portions of an accident that wasn't my fault. Thankfully, none of us were injured, but I feel unprotected and that they are only going to assist me when it's in their best interests. I could only imagine what would of happened if we had to be rushed to the hospital and what bills we would have incurred. I would never go with them again and would recommend everyone else to stay clear of them regardless of what you view online! They haven't lived up to their reputation.

    Great customer service. Answer any questions 24/7. My husband has had to report claims. They got right on it and took care of repairs fast and no problems. We are happy with them and we get a 10% discount after taking driver's online test.

    This company’s business practices are beyond reprehensible and criminal. My husband, having been a loyal customer, for much over a decade, with both cars and home insured by Amica, called to understand what it might cost in the future, if he were to insure his teenage boy, once he gets a license. We knew the child may be insured through either one of the parents, and we didn’t decide at this point in time how we would want to proceed. The customer rep, without prior notice, proceeded to ask some information about the child, then quoted 3000 dollars for the yearly insurance. He then proceeded to tell us that once the child gets a license, he will be automatically added to the insurance policy, without prior consent from the policy owner. We explain that we explicitly prohibit him from adding the child to the policy, since there will be other ways we are looking at insuring him.

    The clerk proceeded to tell us that there was nothing we could do about this, and that we will be charged and the child will automatically be put on the existing policy - since the clerk was able to get a hold of identification information for the child, from us. Of course my husband lost it. And the clerk simply hang up. Needless to say, they are now losing our business, and hopefully additional business in the future. I don’t know in what world, an organization is legally able to force someone to pay 3000 dollars for services they refuse to buy from them, while also stripping them of any human dignity, by telling them there’s nothing they could do about it. The call was recorded. This has got to make a great case for litigation.

    They are responsive, helpful with guidance, gracious, Responsive, competent, but relatively expensive. They are rated in the top reviews and work to protect their reputation.

    Talk about an abusive relationship! Amica was silent when I asked questions regarding an injury claim, then they persistently harassed me to settle for an unreasonably low amount before providing all bills and records or confirmed treatment was complete. When I tried to figure out why they were forcing a settlement of my ongoing claim, their lawyer made allegations they were admittedly unwilling to substantiate—it was embarrassingly evident they hadn’t even reviewed my claim. After pinpointing their fallacy, Amica wouldn’t even so much as apologize. They just went silent again.

    I later made a complaint with the Department of Insurance months later when their harassment picked up again. They responded with a false narrative, citing correspondence that was never received, and conveniently ignored written correspondence actually received. They also told the Department of Insurance that my first-party claim was a third-party claim, just so they could skirt their legal obligation I was calling them out on. Meanwhile, they had pressed on attempting to force a settlement behind my back through the Courts with a conflicted arbitrator, all while misleading me as to the date that arbitration needed to be complete forcing me to lawyer up.

    In a separate claim after I was rear ended, I had my car sit at an “Amica preferred shop” for nearly two weeks. In that time, they couldn’t even so much as provide a quote or assess the damage. My Amica adjuster argued it wasn’t a shop of theirs and couldn’t put a work order in, when it was clearly listed on Amica’s website, and the shop confirmed they’re contracted with Amica. Luckily I had a nice loaner, though not at Amica’s expense.

    Like most others have reported, after nearly a decade with them, I saw unusually high rate increases. They’re using their increased rates to pay corrupt corporate attorneys to diminish payouts and charming marketing to reel in more unsuspecting victims. What a scam show, especially with that new commercial of theirs claiming they exceed their customer’s standards. I was diagnosed with a concussion by multiple medical professionals and Amica stated there was no medical evidence of a concussion. I must’ve hit my head harder than I thought to continue trusting Amica with my insurance needs as long as I did! I encourage you to take your business elsewhere, as I did.

    11/16/2020 was when I made a call to Amica Insurance and ask for a quote for my home and auto. The guy who answers the phone seems to be agitated right from the get-go. I proceeded to ask questions so I can compare my current insurance. He started to belittle me with nasty answers and angry replies. I asked why was he been so rude to me when I just wanted information. He prompts hangs up. I call back and ask the next customer service rep to transfer me to a supervisor and he stated that they are busy and that they will call me back within a couple of minutes. to this time I have not heard from them. I would never do business with these people who tread potential customers horribly. we make companies successful when we the customers are happy, I will spread the word about how bad customer service is with this company.

    We've never been more frustrated with a company and their complete lack of response. We've been using Amica for the last 4-5 years (now in the 2nd home we've insured through them) and wow is the customer service lacking!!! Upon moving into our new home in October, we were required to get repair work done in order to make sure our coverage would continue beyond the 1st year. Which we had absolutely no problem doing - and we did have the work done a few months ago. We were asked to submit proof of the work being completed, we which we also did - and in my correspondence I asked that they please confirm 1. That they received our documents and 2. That what we sent was adequate proof of completion - and the repairs were satisfactory to continue coverage.

    Well!... Just sent my 3rd email since July 9th asking for confirmation because we still haven't received any notification or confirmation from them. And this is not the first time we've had issues getting them to respond to emails, return calls, or provide accurate information. When we first received quotes for our policy in this house - one person gave us a quote (for the exact same coverage we are now carrying) that was almost $1,000 less than what we are now paying. When I asked about this discrepancy before signing off on any coverage I was told they have no idea why I was given that number and and "sorry" but it's not accurate.

    Unfortunately by the time we were made aware of this "mistake" on their end, we were within days of closing and had no time to shop around for new rates. Which means we unfortunately got stuck paying a much higher premium and a higher deductible than first quoted. Can't wait for our policy to end so we can switch to a company that is responsive and actually appreciates our years of business.
