I have been a GEICO customer for about least 15 years. Claims and customer service are not the issue with them. After said years of faithfully paying my insurance on time and renewing each year I accidently back into a car in my driveway. The cars were repaired without incident. However, GEICO penalized me by taking away my good driver discount and increase my monthly insurance rate by nearly $100.00 ; leving a hefty penalty for making a claim. I can’t imagine the money they made off of me during the 15 years I’ve faithfully paid auto insurance. I am hunting for a new auto insurance carrier since GEICO obviously thinks driving is perfect and accidents never happen.
I just switched to Geico because of these comments. I thought the whole, "save you more money, " marketing was just a gimmick, but I really did save money. My bill has gone down! I'm paying less for 2 vehicles than I was for 1 vehicle with another provider, same features! I spoke with 3 different people, and all of them were great, and personable. I didn't feel like just another number. Awesome rates, awesome service. Highly recommended.
In October 2018, we ran a quote with two leading comparison sites to find the cheapest car insurance for a Vauxhall Corsa Life - a Group 1 car. The quote was for a 35 year old woman with a clean driving record, living in the South East of England, and the car was a 2008 Vauxhall Corsa, 3 door hatchback, manual, petrol, with an alarm fitted. It cost £2985.00.
Like Amica Mutual and Auto-Owners, Erie Insurance typically flies under the radar. Customers report high levels of satisfaction with service and claims experiences. Erie also grabs the top spot in a national survey of customers' car insurance shopping experiences, with its local agents receiving above average marks. In one owner survey, it gets very good ratings for claims processing, price and service satisfaction -- although some say it is pricier than other options. Erie offers some other impressive benefits that most other insurers charge extra for, such as transportation expenses after an accident, travel costs, personal property and locksmith services. In addition, Erie waives your deductible if you are in an accident with another Erie policy holder. However, the big drawback to Erie Insurance is that it only offers coverage in 11 states, mostly the mid-Atlantic and Midwest.
"I have had many engine upgrades. When I first bought the car it did not have a turbo and was only 220bhp. Then, I did a twin turbo transplant which took the power close to 300bhp. I then did a BPU setup, taking the power to around 450bhp. After this, I pushed the twin turbos, so changed to a Holset single setup 550bhp. After the Holset died I got the Garret T88 single turbo (which is my current setup) and now the car runs at 700bhp."
GEICO also offers a wide variety of policy options and discounts for non-military members, and the company earns solid financial ratings. While GEICO offers a smattering of local agents -- and they get lackluster reviews -- it does most of its business online and over the phone and the company's phone representatives earn kudos for their solid customer service. Service is also available 24/7.
Matthew thanks for posting this. You’re absolutely right. USAA has gone down the tubes, I dont get it, a simple claim recently for auto, turned into a nightmare. bouncing my calls all over the country with a bunch of idiots for claim reps answering the phones, and forcing my car into total loss when it should not have been, and paying only a portion of the damage even though I have collision.
Craig’s Ford Focus RS is extremely modified. The engine is forged with oversized pistons etc. It’s also had lots of headwork – it’s running a gtx 35/86r turbo with 1000cc injectors. In addition, it’s running an emu black ecu, is on bc racing coilovers and has a full roll cage (painted orange) fitted. Other modifications include: racing bucket seats, a wrap (done by blueprint), a btcc front end, and many more.
