Which insurers does TrueNorth work with?
TrueNorth doesn’t provide information about their insurance partners. That leaves customers relying solely on agents to find the best coverage for them, a possible problem for customers who like a bit more control.
What do customers say about TrueNorth?
TrueNorth needs more customer ratings to make a solid decision on the experience you’ll receive. Of the reviews we found on social sites, customers gave mixed reviews for customer service.
Multiple customers praised TrueNorth on Google for its knowledgeable customer service and helpful policies, like its owner-operator insurance. However, others had trouble with slow service, unreturned phone calls and billing issues.
Google had a high overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars. Facebook saw a handful of five-star reviews for the overall company, but customers left no comments for context.
The company does have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), although no customer reviews. Social sites can give you a peek at TrueNorth’s service, but clear reviews with the BBB, Trustpilot or another reputable site would give more authority and reliability.
