If I get excellent response on insurance (which I have for my cars) why do I care that some guy is making tons of money as a reward? More power to him! Keep it up!

Regardless of the warnings about sticking to the subject matter, there are apparently still short-sighted and me, me me people here posing argument.

I'd best unsubscribe before I get into trouble.

Hi Everyone -

Thanks to all who offered constructive feedback. I wanted to let you all know how this turned out.

You'll recall that my coach was vandalized and burglarized under coverage with Progressive Insurance. After which, I filed a claim that was denied and had an unbelievably poor experience with their claims personnel.

Following months of legal action, Progressive Insurance was shown to have acted in bad faith and were required to not only pay my original claim, but all attorney and filing fees as well.

It was sad that it had to come to that, but all was made right in the end. And now I am with State Farm.

Happy RV'ing out there!

I guess Flo's salary is consuming too much of Progresive's income.

Soooooooooo... Who is the best to insure with? I have progressive now, it is a less than 30 days a year policy, $924 per year. I hate to think why it will be when I go full-time next year! Any suggestions?

My personal experience says that that if Progressive is involved, retain an attorney to handle it immediately! Their people in Miami came across as children with bad attitudes. They tried to devalue the vehicle by claiming that some of the accident damage was pre-existing, never responded to any letter I sent them, and even tried to return the 'totaled' vehicle to my driveway because I would not accept their offer of half its value.

I was left with the clear impression that their revenue was slated for profits and advertising; definitely not for settling claims.

We often hear good and bad about almost every insurance company. I use a local independent agent who shops rates for me and I actually have separate companies for home, auto and RV. The best RV deal was with Progressive. Had a claim this year when I backed into a pole and cracked the rear cap. The Progressive adjustor contacted me two days after I filed a claim and could not have been more cooperative and helpfull. Had all repairs completed and everything resolved in about 3 weeks. I'm not up for renewal for another 6 months so I can't comment about a rate increase. I'll be surprised if my rates don't go up. However, I'll have to say that I have been very pleased with the performance of Progressive so far.

I had progressive for 6 years, every single renewal my policy would go up, with no tickets/ claims/ accidents, finally the last renewal jumped 30%, when I asked they claimed that the cost of business was rising and they had to spread the cost, my thought is bill those costing you money, I switched to liberty mutual and saved 50%. my coach is however with progressive, it's old and only $178/year. Less than half of anyone else. Its liability coverage, to old for full coverage.

Me too (had to fix the font just for this reply)

Maybe it's the partnership - but Progessive beat EVERYBODY's price and I DID check everybody I could find (GS, Geico, StateFarm, AllState, etc.)...anybody that would give me a quote.

For the OP - I'm wondering, what "piece of equipment" was diassembled by the Insurance Guy for a simple forced entry and paint damage?

Millions of people shop at retailers like WM and HD knowing that they are saving money by buying an inferior Chinese manufactured product. There is no expectation of quality and neither the consumer nor the retailer is surprised when the product is being returned because it broke or went up in smoke.

We expect to pay less for an inferior product. The bargain insurance ads seldom make any claims beyond offering a low premium cost. What pays for those ads? That's right, your premium check. When it comes time to settle a claim, the money has already been spent. When it is necessary to retain an attorney to deal with "your" insurance company over a simple claim, it becomes apparent that you purchased an inferior product. Just like the Harbor Freight tools on my work bench, it's a bargain if you never have to use it.

I believe any insurance company is a buyer beware situation. The publicly owned companies must make quarterly projections, and will surely handle claims accordingly. Bad quarter - tough on new claims. Acceptable quarterly earnings - business as normal. The same is mostly true for mutually owned companies, but maybe less reactive. They are all state regulated, and must meet certain financial requirements. Policy holders will certainly suffer when a company gets on the wrong side of a state's financial requirements model. Hence differing claims satisfaction experiences with different people from state to state. Does this make sense?
