Other Features State Farm The Hartford
About Get the protection you need at a price you can afford with State Farm; offering packaged options, discounts and custom coverage to meet any driver's needs. Since 1810, The Hartford continually seeks new and better ways to proactively respond to their customers needs.
Roadside Assistance State Farm's Emergency Road Service offers mechanical labor at the place of breakdown, the towing of your vehicle to a repair facility, removal of a stuck vehicle, delivery of gas or oil, assistance with changing a tire or a jumpstart, and locksmith services.

Recent Questions Should I file a claim through State Farm?
These kinds of situations are going to depend greatly on your current finances and insurance premiums. If you've previously had a clean record, an accident will typically increase your rates by about 20 to 30%.
Can my new insurer cover a bodily injury claim made against me from my past accident when I was covered by a different company?
Unfortunately, State Farm will not handle your recent bodily injury claim since you no longer have a policy with them. Progressive would be the one to handle that claim since that is your current active plan.
My car was towed by an apartment complex, will State Farm reimburse me for the towing cost?
Roadside assistance covers towing but it won't cover your car being towed by someone else. Your insurance company will not cover the cost of your car being towed from parking in the wrong location.
What could be the reason State Farm increased my premium?
Since it is policy-specific, State Farm will be the only one who can answer why the rate increased by 39%. I am not aware of any insurance law in California that would cause an increase of 39%.

Are deductibles company specific?
While they are some company-specific deductibles, the standard ones are $500 and $1000. So it's unlikely you won't be able to get the desired amount for your collision or comprehensive deductible.
