Progressive RV Insurance

I’ve been reading posts for the past year that Progressive was raising their rates. I was wondering if I would be facing the same fate come this November. Well my renewal arrived last week and sure enough, my premium increased by more than $300, even though I have a spotless driving record with zero claims. I began gathering quotes from several companies specializing in RV insurance. Ultimately, my hometown insurance agent found me the best rate. I secured coverage from Allied Insurance, an affiliate of Nation Wide, for $100 less than I was paid last year for my Progressive policy.

So as it turns out, Progressive did me a favor by hiking up my premium. I’ll now be paying less for identical coverage.

Thanks Progressive!

Craig

I'm still looking for a cheaper rate on two cars and an RV. This greed has got to stop.

The rates dropped for 3 people and stayed the same for one and you call that greed - amazing. Because of the competitive market the OP got a much lower rate by shopping around, so something was "done."

That is the way a competitive market works and that will take care of any "greed" that may exist.

Our local agent shops for us. Been with them for years. If any of our policies increase we can give them a call and they will try to find a cheaper alternative. We have checked their work by calling around and haven't really found any substantially better deals. Do have to keep them honest with a call once in a while though.

Currently we are also with progressive through our agent so thanks for the heads up on the increase.

BTW Progressive has road side assistance with our policy so check yours to see if you pay for a different one.

Mine went up, second year in a row. I shopped around and Progressive still had the best rate for me. I did call them and got them to reduce the premium by about $75 per year because I'm also a homeowner.

We just purchased our first motorhome and I purchased temporary insurance (to take delivery) from Progressive.com. I have since checked with my local rep and we are now covered under Nationwide for $600 a year less then Flo & her boss wanted.

I have been with GMAC for 4 1/2 years and the 6 month price is the same now as the day I started. Not sure why some get price increases and others don't.

They have to pay Flo and that little Geico gecko and the smooth talking Allstate guy a lot to play their commercials repetitively and endlessly on every TV channel, and guess who ultimately pays for them? My independent agent quoted me regular Progressive for hundreds less than Progressive.com and regular Hartford for little more than half of AARP Hartford for the same coverage. Shop, shop, shop around, or throw some of your unwanted money my way.

Our insurance is up for renewal in a month so I will be watching for it and if it goes up I will be trying some of the other companies that provide fulltimers coverage. I have never even checked to see if I have roadside assistance with my Progressive policy, I'll check that and see if I need to renew that in January, it'll be nice if that is part of my policy!
