UPC Insurance considers itself a coastal state expert, providing homeowners insurance to vulnerable areas since 1999. They are licensed in 18 states and write new business in 12. UPC Insurance ratings with Demotech remain an A (exceptional) and the company is publicly traded on NASDAQ. It offers homeowners, condo, renters, landlord, and flood insurance and its Florida market share is a 3.66 percent.
UPC Insurance has a relatively small number of Clearsurance reviews: 44. About 30 percent of customers give UPC excellent ratings and 39 percent rated them poor. Positive reviews cite a good claims adjuster or positive experience with the sales team.
By contrast, keeping the insurance process simple with well-trained agents is where Kin excels. Our 1,500 Trustpilot reviews cite the professionalism and knowledge of our representatives.
On average, customers rate Kin 4.8 out of 5; UPC’s average is 1.9.
Bottom line: Training your team is important to making sure policyholders get the right coverage before they need it.
Florida homeowners are unfortunately accustomed to paying high premiums for sub-par insurance. We credit UPC for offering competitively-priced coverage. Their average premium for a $300,000 newly built home is $1,723 a year, but it’s still higher than our average of $1,354 a year. UPC costs about 27 percent more than Kin.

Your rate will likely differ from the state average with any insurance carrier – either higher or lower. Every homeowners insurance policy is underwritten based on the home’s location, size, construction, and claims history.
Claims demonstrate whether or not an insurance carrier fulfills its promise to policyholders. Customers can pay premiums for years without ever having a claim and be perfectly content; the difference is whether or not claims are handled properly and fairly.
UPC has mixed reviews with how claims are handled, which suggests the customer’s experience is contingent on the claims adjuster.
We train our claims team to be consistent, fair, and fast. Technology helps us streamline processing and take subjectivity out of an adjuster’s report. The promise to be there for you when a disaster hits is something we take to heart. That’s why we get in touch after major storms just to check-in.
