It can be a hassle to research different companies when looking for car insurance. It’s important to find a good plan at a good price, but sometimes it’s hard to distinguish whether a company is reliable.
With smaller companies like GoAuto, it can be even harder to find unbiased ratings and information. GoAuto Insurance is one of the more popular insurance providers in Louisiana but reports from Motor1 are saying that they might not be a reliable choice for car coverage.
What is GoAuto Insurance?
GoAuto Insurance is a car insurance company based out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They offer insurance plans in Louisiana, Nevada, Texas, and Ohio, with offices spread throughout where clients can receive in-person assistance.
It is the seventh-largest car insurance provider in the state of Louisiana, ranking with big-name insurers like GEICO. Despite their local popularity, they don’t offer homeowners, renters, or any other type of coverage besides car insurance.
Its car insurance policies cover most bases. They offer the required bodily injury and property damage liability coverage, medical payments, comprehensive coverage, collision coverage, personal injury protection, uninsured or underinsured motorist protection, and a full coverage package.
However, other than the standard coverage offerings, GoAuto isn’t bringing much else to the table. Most supplementary options, like rideshare insurance, GAP (guaranteed asset protection) coverage, or roadside assistance, are not available. GoAuto does offer towing and car rental coverage in Louisiana, though.
What are the issues with GoAuto?
The reviews for GoAuto are mixed to say the least. It’s difficult to tell how well they handle finances, as they aren’t a big enough company to be rated by any insurance industry rating services.
Other sources have a wide range of things to say about them. The Better Business Bureau rated them with an A+, but the company has a long list of complaints from customers. Many of them have complained about the quality of service they received and lack of clarity about their insurance plans.
The Louisiana Department of Insurance lists GoAuto as having a high complaint index, meaning their complaint/company size ratio is much higher than other insurance companies in the state.
Overall, there is little that shows GoAuto to be a reliable source for insurance. Motor1 said that their rates are reasonable, but there’s not much else to be said about the company’s achievements. Even with the lack of information offered about them on third-party sites, the negative reviews might speak for themselves.
