Auto Insurance

10 posts in this topic

Not sure if there is a specific forum but...looking at trying one of these large insurance companies you see on TV and they seem to be about $350 a year less on my auto and $250 less on home. Has anyone ever had any really bad experiences with any insurance companies?

IMO having a real live agent that you can call or go and talk to is worth the extra money. If you get a ticket or have a minor accident you can talk to your agent and get a straight answer about what the impact might be if you make a claim or plead to the ticket. You also have to consider what coverages are included or excluded - a tough thing to do without seeing the insurance contract and then being able to make sense out of it and compare it to another policy. Cheap isn't always the best and if you're going to be saving that kind of money you have to know what you're not getting.

We've occasionally shopped for comparison but end up staying with Farmers, which I've been with for 30 years. They do the vehicles and house and I get a 10% discount for direct pay. Not saying it's the best but it works. I have my bike through AAA which is about half of what Farmers offers.

I've had Am Fam, Prog, and New Hartford. Am Fam was by far the most expensive!! Prog was great and New Hart is better!

I used to have eSurance. They were the best price I could find at the time. I only had one claim--severe hail damage. It was handled very quickly and hassle-free. I was happy with them. Now that I am married and own a house, I am with USAA.

I have my auto through AAA and the house through Northstar. Nobody else could come close to the price in my area.

Make sure to read the fine print to see if they cover full replacement values or "book" values. Others have qualifiers on the policy...ask questions and compare deductibles etc. chances are if there is a large gap in pricing, something along the way is different.

We used to have Unitrin and I believe that is now some part of Hartford. If you have a clean driving record, they were the cheapest we could find by far.

AIG has been the cheapest I've found. No problems with them. Had hail damage and adjustor was here in a few hours. Besides AIG really needs the money so I am happy to send them my premium. haha.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
