In my experience the worst of the worst is Progressive Insurance. My recent dealings with them have made me want to print out Flo's picture and tack it to a dart board.
Sweets had been with Progressive Insurance for years and so his automatic response was to call them to add the new truck while we were at the dealership so we could wrap up the deal and go home. It's not exactly the proper time to start shopping for insurance. That time came when I got the bill. Are you kidding me Progressive? Your rates SUCK.
The policy for the truck was over $1,000.00 for 6 months and the coverage was garbage. One step up from the state minimum on full coverage with a $500 deductible on comprehensive (not a bad choice for that deductible). It was a crap policy for WAY too much money. They did add their "pet coverage" with the full coverage for "free." Great gimmic but if your pet is injured or killed in an accident they only pay up to $1,000.00 which we all know is pretty much a broken leg or something minor at the vet's office. Gift horse, yadda, yadda... I know but they could keep it and lower their damn premium prices.
Anyway, I could drag this out forever but I'm not going to.
To make a long story shorter, I called GEICO. You know, the company with that sexy little lizard guy?
Every auto insurance company in the world is running their commercials that they can save you hundreds of dollars a year. The commercials are great to watch, but unfortunately they aren't always truthful. Progressive proved to us that they are dirty F'in liars and I don't like dirty F'in liars. Especially when I'm being forced to buy something because it's law and I HAVE to. Don't get me wrong, I'd do it anyway to protect anything and everything that we have and that's why we do more than state minimum but I'm a choices kinda person and don't like to be told what I have to do to protect OUR assets. I could think of much better things to invest $2,000.00 a year in than hand it over to an insurance company.
They are one crappy insurance company. It makes me wonder how well they handle their claims and try to weasel their way out of paying. Huh.
So if you are with Progressive Insurance or thinking about switching to Progressive Insurance, I'd shop around. I know the thought that goes through my mind every time I hear Flo say the word "discount" is now "bullshit."
So... Sweets and I can honestly say this...
We saved over $1,500.00 a year by switching from Progressive Insurance to GEICO.
And GEICO didn't even have to pay us to say it. Progressive Insurance just sucks SO badly that we are saying it for free. :)
Well, I'm getting off my soapbox for a while again.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
