You have a lot of choices when shopping for home insurance. But how can you be sure you’ve found a good insurance company? What makes an insurer the best insurance company?
This Safepoint Insurance review lays out the facts in an effort to answer these questions. We’ll take a look at customer reviews and average premiums to give a full impression of the company so you can draw your own conclusions.
Safepoint Insurance offers insurance in five states, including Florida and Louisiana. The company offers homeowners insurance, flood, identity theft protection, equipment breakdown, and commercial insurance. It has an A, Exceptional, rating from Demotech and maintains less than 1 percent of the Florida’s home insurance market share.
Customer reviews offer insight into what’s it’s like to work with a company. That’s especially important when shopping for insurance because price is often not the only consideration. You want to make sure you’re dealing with a company that will look out for you when you experience a major loss.
Safepoint Insurance has strong reviews: out of 166 reviews, they have an average 4.1-star rating on Google. Many of the reviews cite good prices and service.
The company also maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau with 17 total complaints in the past three years – three of those complaints were resolved and closed. To the company’s credit, they do attempt to resolve the complaints with each consumer.

Homeowners insurance in Florida and Louisiana is expensive – there’s no sugarcoating that. Because of its intense and frequent hurricanes, insurers have to price coverage that appropriately addresses the risk to ensure they can pay claims. The best insurers constantly work to help bring down costs, though.
Both Kin and Safepoint are similar in pricing. For a $300k newly built home, our average yearly premium is $1,354, and Safepoint’s is $1,348.

The point of insurance is to have financial security when you experience a loss. That’s why it’s so important to know how a company handles claims – this is when they make good on their promise to the policyholder.
