As one of the largest insurance companies in the United States, Allstate offers various insurance policies, including top-notch auto insurance. Allstate customers can take advantage of auto insurance coverage for collision, uninsured motorists and even sound system insurance. Allstate's history dates back to the 1930s, when our founder General Robert E. Wood saw an opportunity to sell auto insurance via mail.

The company was backed by Sears and blossomed into a large insurance company that focuses on providing its customers with the best value while helping them prepare for the future with insurance coverage. That's part of why Allstate provides customer support 24/7 to help answer policyholders' questions and embraces technology to make it easier for customers to make claims or manage their auto insurance policies. As a result, Allstate has earned several accolades including a spot on Fortune's Change the World List. Here's what you can look forward to with Allstate:
