This was originally going to be a pitting of my present auto insurance agent. He’s had to do next to nothing so far except collect my checks for 15 years. Turns out, next to nothing isn’t good enough for him, he had absolutely nothing in mind. I once took another driver to small claims court when his company refused to pay for my damages (he was at fault) without involving my company because the agent told me it would increase my rates. The last straw came today when I learned he hadn’t taken my daughter off my insurance as I requested when she left for college. I learned this when I got a notice from the head company asking me to verify that she still qualifies for a good student discount. When I called him about it, he hemmed and hawed and said that he typically doesn’t take college age kids off their parents’ policies because so many college students go to local schools and they drive their parents’ cars all the time. Well, my kid is over 800 miles away and isn’t driving at all - which is what I told him when I specifically asked him to remove her in August.
But no……I’m not going to dwell in the past; I’m just going to switch companies, or at least agents. Has anybody had had good experiences with their auto insurance provider? Any horror companies that should be avoided at all costs. How much insurance does a typical driver need anyhow?
Please tell me your car insurance experiences - good and bad
