Which insurance provider is right for you? Compare pros & cons, premiums, and quotes from Farmers and Liberty Mutual.
Farmers Insurance began selling insurance a year before the Great Depression and survived to become a household name. Founders John C. Tyler and Thomas E. Leavey started off by going farm to farm to gain their first policies. They specifically lowered rates for farmers and ranchers because they understood that these occupations posed fewer risks with their vehicles. By 1928, they were able to open an office in downtown Los Angeles. During the Great Depression, Farmers was one of the few companies that were able to pay claims. When a devastating earthquake hit Los Angeles, Farmers paid out claims for damaged cars and became the first insurance company to offer comprehensive insurance.
