Why Are Bear River’s Rates So Affordable?

Bear River is able to keep their rates so low for a few important reasons. First, since it’s a locally owned mutual fund in Utah only, it’s tied to our strong economy and environment. Policyholders don’t have to pay extra for disasters common to other states. Next, policyholders are actual owners of the mutual fund instead of stakeholders or investors. So as a policyholder, you’ll reap the benefits instead of them. Finally, Bear River Mutual adheres to the strict acceptance values upon which the company was founded. This means you’re in good company with other safe, responsible, hard-working drivers like yourself. Higher standards means fewer accidents, fewer payouts, and therefore lower premiums.

Since Bear River Mutual has insured Utah residents exclusively since 1909, they can understand and respond to Utahans’ needs better than most insurance companies. Additionally, since Utah does not have to deal with hurricanes, tornados, or very severe Winter activity, we have the benefit of having an insurance company that can focus the amount it charges to only this local area without requiring us to subsidize other high-risk areas like Texas or Florida. Being a “Mutual” insurance company means that the policyholders are the owners of the insurance company. This helps rates stay low and reasonable because there aren’t Wall Street shareholders demanding profits.

Our Team
Bear River Mutual Insurance ReviewsTop Rated Bear River Mutual Insurance got it’s start in 1909 in Northern Utah. Farmers soon recognized they needed protection against potential damages to their farms, so they formed a mutual company where they could pool their money into a collective account. This strategy proved to be less expensive than other insurance companies in Utah at that time and still holds true today.

These founding farmers realized that they could trust each other to help insure their farms because they shared similar values and high standards. Only those who shared their high values could join the mutual fund. Trust, honesty, integrity, and hard work governed the policies and execution of benefits. Bear River Mutual operates in the same manner today.

What Is A Mutual Company?

A mutual company is one where premiums are pooled into a central fund to cover any claims. Benjamin Franklin actually started the first mutual insurance company in 1752 called the Philadelphia Contributionship (Fire Insurance Company of America). Acceptance into their policies was strict back then, too, with surveyors deployed to assess properties, building materials, workmanship, safety measures, and risks.

Today, mutual insurance funds operate similarly. Bear River Mutual keeps its overhead low and passes on positive earnings to their policyholders through low insurance rates. Also, since they’re local, great emphasis is placed on excellent customer service and accountability.

As an authorized Bear River Mutual Insurance agency, we can help see if you qualify for coverage. They’re pretty strict about their policies, but that’s exactly what keeps costs low and service premium.

Benefits of Mutual Insurance Companies

Why should you choose a top-rated mutual insurance company? As we mentioned, with a mutual company, policyholders are co-owners of the firm. Because of this, members benefit from premium rates that are lower than those of comparable stock insurance companies because mutual insurance companies don’t have to worry about shareholder returns. This allows mutual insurance companies to focus on their members and keep rates as low as possible. Lower rates and no shareholder pressure typically results in happier members.
