National Casualty is the name given to the firm that later became Scottsdale Insurance Company. Today, the company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nationwide Mutual Insurance, but continues to operate their offices independently. Rather than being absorbed into the larger company the way many insurance companies have done, Scottsdale Insurance uses the backing of the parent company to enhance their product base and increase customer appeal.
National Casualty Insurance was founded in 1982. During the following years, the company expanded and grew. During the 2000s, Scottsdale Insurance Expanded into different types of liability and casualty coverage, purchasing a pet insurance company and opening a specialty insurance company for truckers. Scottsdale insurance reports that a majority of their associates have more than 10 years with company, and encourages long term relationships between associates and their customers.
Because Scottsdale Insurance is a wholly owned subsidiary, they are not individually rated by companies like the A.M. Best financial ratings company. Instead, the smaller Scottsdale Insurance company enjoys the "A+" (Superior) rating of the parent company. However, even though their ratings were not downgraded, the company received a negative long term outlook in their most recent review of March, 2012.
Insurance Products Offered
Scottsdale Insurance offers insurance products for vehicles, homeowners and business owners. Their vehicle insurance includes coverage for recreational vehicles, commercial fleets and over the road truckers. As part of the larger family of Nationwide Insurance companies, they are also able to provide a wide range of insurance products such as life insurance, health insurance and umbrella liability coverage.
