Argonaut Claims

Many of the claims that you need to make with Argo can be done online.

In addition, you can also use their website to see the status of your claim or to determine if there is any other information needed to complete your claim.

If you prefer, you can make a claim with a live representative at one of these numbers:

  • 312.201.7600
  • 800.678.6766
  • 559.447.7100

There is no indication on their website as to whether or not they offer 24/7 claims service.

Typically, most insurance companies, if they offer 24/7 service, they advertise it.

However, that isn’t always the case and it is something you will want to find out for yourself before you purchase any insurance from this company.

Argonaut Reviews

In terms of customer reviews regarding this company, we found very little information.

There were, however, several reviews posted by current and former employees of the company.

While a majority of them said that this was a good company to work for, all of them said the same thing about being able to move up in the company, that it was impossible.

Most claim that Argo Group doesn’t promote from within, but hires from outside of the company when a management position comes open.
