In 1923, Hawthorne K. Dent wanted to create an insurance company with a whole new outlook and change the normal method of the way insurance was done. Even though his vision was doubted by many, he didn’t let that stop him and he started the General Insurance Company of America in Seattle, Washington. Nicknamed “The General” at the time, this company became known for its excellent service and unbeatable prices and the business spread down the West Coast into California and across to the far east into Connecticut.
In 1953, “The General” started a branch of their company and named it Selective Auto and Fire Insurance of Company of America (or SAFECO). After becoming computer automated, the success of SAFECO Insurance Company grew and a few years after that, SAFECO Insurance Company also began selling life insurance policies. SAFECO Insurance Company was able to present mutual funds and commercial credit lines towards the later part of the 1960’s and the company name, “The General”, was changed to the SAFECO Corporation throughout the entire group.
SAFECO Insurance Company bought American State Financial Corporation in 1997 and increased their charge east of the Rocky Mountains which in turn helped them to become one of the top insurances for small to middle sized companies. By the late 1990’s, the economic times were tough and by 2002, SAFECO reevaluated the strategies set out by H.K. Dent and reestablished the same strategies that he had used in order to recover and become successful again. With decisions to be made, in 2004, SAFECO Insurance Company decided to sell their life and investments part of their company and focus on property and casualty insurance and surety bonds.
With the changing times, SAFECO Insurance Company merged with Liberty Mutual Insurance in 2008. This decision gave SAFECO additional financial abilities and strength to help them to be able to focus primarily on personal insurances which offer an extensive coverage selection, competitive prices and one on one service to people wanting to insure their homes, vehicles and much more.

Choosing the SAFECO Package can add up to big savings of up to 15% if you combine your home and vehicle policies together.
