So buying a house here in NC and looking at getting covered. Have had GEICO for 20 years and they've have always been comparable. I shopped all the big guys for similar home and auto coverages. Everyone: State Farm, the Hartford, etc was within a $100 or so. Then I ran across Amica.

Amica is half the price for both home and auto. I looked them up and they are highly rated on consumer sites, high BBB, recently downgraded credit but still very high.

So what's the catch? Anyone with experience with them?

We've used Amica for home, auto and umbrella coverage for about 25 years. We think they're great. It's a mutual company meaning the policy holders are the company owners. Every year we can a nice fat check that helps lower the cost even more. My wife works for a major insurance company. She can get a discount from her own company but insists on using Amica.:2
