What we did find were pieces here and there regarding the original Pride National Insurance Company. No, they don’t have their own website, but they are mentioned on Demotech, Inc., which is a newer financial ratings company. In addition, we found them on the Missouri Department of Insurance website as well as the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance.
Although Pride National was incorporated in Oklahoma, they don’t have an insurance presence in Oklahoma, which is an unusual practice. In 1958, the company changed their name from Farmers and Merchants Insurance Company to Pride National Insurance Company.
Pride National does not have an AM Best rating or a rating on any of the premier financial rating companies for insurance companies. Although they are rated by Demotech, Inc. this isn’t a company that is routinely used among mainstream insurance companies for rating services.

Pride National Auto Insurance Reviews
As you might suspect by now, we were hard pressed to find any consumer reviews about the products sold by Pride National. There were three complaints filed against Pride National on the Better Business Bureau website and the company has an F rating with the BBB as a result.
Another interesting rating that they have received is from the Department of Insurance for Missouri. On this website, they have what they call a complaint index. A complaint level of 100 is considered normal, under 100 is considered better than normal and over 100 is considered worse than normal.
In 2010, the company had a complaint of 155 for their auto insurance and 253 for their property & casualty division. This amount is less than their 2009 complaints, which was 276 for their auto and 458 for their property & causality division.
As you can see, there has been some improvement between these two years; however, there isn’t enough data to determine if this is a growing trend or if the company simply had a better year.
Pride National Auto Insurance Claims
Because Pride National doesn’t have a website, you will not be able to file your claims with the company online. If, however, you are one of the many people who prefer to talk with a live agent after an accident, then this probably won’t present a problem for you.
Amongst the complaints that we did find about the company, none of them were in regards to the company not paying claims or paying claims slowly, so this is probably not an area that they have trouble in.
