Had them for years and never had to make a claim. This year had a cracked windshield and they replaced it same day. Later this year had storm damage on roof. They had adjuster out following week and a check to help fix it the next. Great work and easy process!
It is just the basic coverage to meet state requirements, but that is all I really need. I get a great rate and the longer I am with them I get better rates for being a loyal customer. Reps are great on the phone and my rates never went up after an accident that was not my fault!
Look for actual customer reviews and not paid website reviews!!
My husband got hurt at work and we have been fighting for 2 days to get him into the doctors on Workers Comp.
Customer service is beyond rude and heartless. Takes them forever to file a claim, even when it says "IRGANT MEDICAL ATTENTION REQUIRED".
"Handler" actually said "Well it doesn't say you need surgery" When every doctor who has seen his xrays(including the hospital) stated there was no way he wasn't going to need surgery.
They were going to make a man with a badly broken leg and running out of pain meds, wait up to 5 days to see a doctor "Its going to be a few hours for this" day one "its going to be a few hours to find doctors in your area" day two. Horrible people working for a horrible company.
The coverage itself is OK and the rates are competitive, particulary for young drivers. After a year, they increased the premium on one policy. When I inquired about that, they'd made an error on the original policy. I've now spent two weeks trying to correct that error. Your local agent can't correct the problem. Their Policy Services group isn't available on weekends. They don't have a chat feature at all. When I emailed, I was told I had to call. That number is ALWAYS busy so they encourage you to leave a message, promising to call back the next day but they don't call. If you just sit on hold they'll finally talk to you--and try and sell you some more insurance even though you're an unhappy customer. And, once I did speak to someone who could correct the problem and when I forwarded documentation to the email they provided, it bounced back as undeliverable.
Esurance behaves like your standard cut-rate insurance company without actually being much cheaper. I live in Ohio and we've had several wind storms over the past several months. One of my outbuildings was damaged with missing shingles, being a 2 story Gambrel roof with damage on the top section, the damage went un-noticed until water damage was seen inside. The inspector found 11 damaged shingles on one side and 6 damaged shingles on the other, all allowing water ingress into the residential grade outbuilding. In the inspector's own works "That'll be enough for any insurance company I ever worked with to replace the roof"... not Esurance apparently. I have insurance to protect my property in case of damage, not to take the cheapest route possible to avoid going over my deductible. Chris, the adjuster for Esurance, called back after the report and said that they would repair the shingles only, not the decking, not the tar paper, not the water damage, and not replace the roof. Steer clear of Esurance at all costs, I'll be changing as soon as possible and submitting a dispute with Lexis Nexis to get anything about this off my CLUE report.
I've had State Farm as my home and auto insurance for nearly a decade. I originally applied by walking into a local agent and just talking to them after shopping around online. In the years since, I had gotten in a wreck (the anti-lock brakes failed entirely), and even though it was my fault, they didn't hike my rates by some gargantuan amount (it was rather trivial, and came back down by even more 3 years later), and everything was taken care of for the other party without any further involvement on my part. The agent checks in on occasion to make sure everything is as we want it, and to see if there's anything further she can do. When I went to buy a truck a year and a half ago, I was able to call her up from the dealership, mention that I want to buy a truck, and the binder was ready and faxed in less than 10 minutes later.
Best of all, every time I periodically sniff around for better rates to see what's out there, State Farm either meets or beats them.
Geico will run a credit check to base their quote. If your credit utilization is high during that time you will get a higher quote. The problem with this is not the credit check, it's the fact they don't make it known they do this to get your quote until after the fact. This method can be compared to payday loans, sub prime loans, and everything that takes advantage of those not as versed in click wrap agreements. Make sure your credit is at its highest point if you want to apply and then if you feel you received a high quote compare it to other insurances and if enough people keep documenting their practice a very very good Tort lawyer will eventually take the case and levy a class action suit that will make Geico change it's behavior which is what class action suits are used for, so to all the people living pay check to pay check continue using these type of methods to put your experience with Geico out there and believe me the behavior will change when it gets litigated.
