Shelter Insurance traces its roots back through a hundred-years old farmer’s association, while moving into the modern age with an updated name and approach. Today, the company prides itself on being one of the top regional insurance companies in the country, offering coverage in 18 states. Shelter provides a wide range of insurance products, including coverage for your home, life, car, farm, business and more. It will most likely appeal to those who seek a regional insurer with a strong financial backbone and who want to insure multiple lines of business in one place.
Lines of Business:
While all companies offer a range of car insurance discounts, it's hard to judge any individual discount's value in a meaningful way. For one, the discounts are typically a percentage off the base price, instead of the whole policy.
What does this mean?
Your best bet is to directly discuss your particular situation with an agent to make sure you're getting all the discounts that you may be eligible for on your auto policy. For reference, we've listed all the discounts we believe Shelter has below in order to help determine which ones may fit your profile (though keep in mind that they can vary by state).

When a homeowner has not had any claims, it's a sign to insurers that they are less likely to make one in the future. With this lower risk profile, insurers can offer savings. The look-back window is almost always five years, but some insurers only look back three years, or offer the discount on a sliding scale.
