Safeco, ripoff artists Helpful to 12 out of 12 people

I had a deer jump out in front of my car which crushed the hood and grille and pushed it in about 12 inches. Safeco was my insurance company. The Safeco representative said it was totaled and was emphatic that it COULDN'T be repaired. Yes, yes it could have been repaired because I've had a very similar accident repaired and I spent 3 years in auto mechanics. The reason he said that is because the repairs would have been above $5000 and instead of shelling out money to fix my car (you know, the reason I pay money monthly to my auto insurance) they wanted to screw me so they said it couldn't be fixed. The Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds values for my vehicle were around $5000. Safeco said they don’t use those figures (of course not, why would they use recognized values), they said they pay street value.  I found 6 vehicles like mine on Autotrader, IN MY AREA (they were all whiney about that too), and none were selling for less than $6000. Safeco kept insisting that this wasn’t street value and kept offering me $2000 for my car. So they will ignore any evidence you have as to the value of your vehicle and insist that it is worth far less, because hey, we excel at screwing our customers.  I said I was going to talk to an attorney, which I did.  None wanted anything to do with the case because it wasn’t an auto accident where I was injured.  If any attorneys are reading this, could you please specialize in suing auto insurance companies in this niche. Anyway, I got screwed by Safeco and after receiving the money immediately switched insurance companies.  The whole experience made me furious.  I would be willing to pay lots more for auto insurance at another company than to go with Safeco because when you need them, they’re just going to screw you.  How exactly do you replace your $6000 car with $2000 ?!?!?  Stay far away from this company.

 Insurance went up almost $1000 for the year because of a speeding ticket with no points on license.  Very unreasonable anything to increase charges

 Had  a low rate when I started,Hit a deer, my rate incresed by $500 a year. Rental not covered unless you have a accident. Unlike most insurances will cover when your car is in the shop for other repairs..
