This review is for Elephant Auto Insurance, a company that provides auto insurance to people in Virginia and Maryland. Elephant Auto Insurance has been doing business since 1994 and is a subsidiary of Admiral Group, PLC.
Elephant takes great pleasure in using their name in a funny way. For example, the link on their website introducing their employees and agents is called Meet the Herd; their phone number has the word TRUNK at the end.
In 2011, Elephant was named One of the Best places to Work in Virginia by Virginia Business and by Best Companies Group. Additionally, they were the recipients of the 2010 Employer All Star Award presented by the Society of Human Resource Management Association.
They also received recognition as one of the 50 Most Engaged Workplaces in the United States — an award judged in areas that include:
- Rewards and Recognition
- Professional and Personal Growth
- Accountability and Performance
- Vision and Values
- Corporate Social Responsibility
Elephant does not have an AM Best Financial rating, nor does their parent company, Admiral Group, have one. This doesn’t mean that the car insurance company isn’t financially sound, only that they haven’t registered to be rated.
The only issue is that without this rating, you are in the dark as to how the company is performing financially.
In addition, there are no comments at the Better Business Bureau for this company. Again, this doesn’t mean anything negative, only that it makes it more difficult to determine the quality of services offered by this company.
