Mercury General Corporation

When it comes to choosing an insurance company, we know consumers want the lowest price possible. But they also want the appropriate amount of coverage to keep their family safe. Why should they have to sacrifice one over the other? With Mercury, we believe in having the best of both worlds. Low rates, excellent coverage and a local agent who’s there every step of the way. That’s what sets Mercury apart from our competitors. And that’s what makes us the obvious choice when it comes to insurance. Since we first opened our doors in 1962, we’ve provided comprehensive coverage options ranging from personal auto insurance to homeowners insurance to mechanical breakdown protection. Dedicated managers and enthusiastic employees work hand-in-hand with our network of independent agents to make Mercury one of the fastest-growing auto insurers in the nation and the leading insurer in California. The momentum is building. And the good news is we have no plans to stop.
