Appreciate your feedback.
Allied is not available online. They are exclusively sold through independent agencies only, not company owned agencies like State Farm.
Oh, and I know State Farm agents think they own their agencies, but they don't -- ask if they can sell I or what they paid to get it. I only make that point because generally I think State Farm and their agents are great, but if push comes to shove the State Farm agent has to bend to State Farm or risk losing their agency. An independent agent maintains little more control over the situation and can simply start moving their customers policies to another provider -- of course with the insured in agreement.
