Time to Change Insurance

Long story short, I've been going around and around with my insurance company about money they think i owe them. As usual when a company is involved, its never anything they did wrong.

The only reason i have stayed with them this long, is the rates -- I basically get full coverage on a 2001 VW Golf, a 1999 Ford F250, and a 2003 Yamaha R6 for about 130 / month, which i have found is hard to beat if your coverages are decent.

Where is good to go -- I've looked at big companies -- i.e. progessive, allstate, but they cant even come close to the premiums that i pay now.

I'm in the same boat. State Farm really pissed me off recently (wouldn't give me road side assistance because I only had it on my track day car...). Every other provider is $2000+ more a year though...and Century 21 wouldn't even touch me. Post up once you find someone!

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)

Farmers. Left Allstate after 35 years because of a credit issue. Went to farmers and saved a ton of money and the service is good.

Progressive bumped up my rates this upcoming renewal as well, and nothing has changed with my record or vehicles. I guess I'll be shopping around as well.

Last I checked, Progressive was cheaper than everyone by $300-400/year with same coverages, but that was a little over a year ago.

I had 1000GSXR and assholes in allstate quoted me over 900$ with multi car discount house etc., so I called progressive and got it for 600$ full coverage. Recently my sister-in law started dating insurance broker and he got me insured through progressive - 372$ a year with full coverage. I called 1-800 progressive and ask them WTF, why you guys are so much more that local dealer, there answer was - we have to pay for advertising and some other shit.
I sold GSXR and got 600RR and my full coverage now is 216$ with extra 3k in upgrades. I was thinking skipping middle man would save me money, but looks like local brokers can add some extra discounts.
PM me if you want his number, he will try to help you out.
