My Car Insurance Co Made Me Mad - I Just Saved 279.20
<p>Thanks Dien - Gordon,
<p><b>My Car Insurance Co Made Me Mad - I Just Saved 279.20</b>
<p>Yesterday I got a Car Insurance Reminder bill for 540.00.
<p>I called up.
<p>Turns out MY UNCONSCIOUS MIND was trying to Save me munny. Wrote
a check for 60.10 instead of 606.10
<p>But Steve - the Insurance Rep says, "But there is good news. You can get a
55.00 discount if you Take A Defensive Driver Course.. I'll send you the link.
<p>Problem #1 - It's a 6 Hour Course!
<p>Problem #2 - The Test is given by a 3rd Party - NOT my Insurance Company
which Has lots of fine print WARNING me they aren't liable for anything.
<p>PROBLEM #3 - They want 20 BUCKS to Save 55.00!
<p><b>NOW I AM MAD! </b>
<p>So I Google "Best Maryland Insurance Companies."
<p>Come Up with "Erie and Progressive" as the two Rated As Lowest
as far as The COST of Insurance.
<p>I find a list of "Erie Insurance" Reps here in Maryland. The 1st guy I call
picks up but is with another client.
<p>A - So I fill out a Instant Insurance Form - 1931.00 POPS OUT. And I
am already p*aying 1200.00 - YIKES.
<p>B - I call a Couple other Erie offices - NOBODY ANSWERS the Phone.
<p>C - So I decide to Call Kevin - The Owner of the Insurance Company
I sent the Confetti Cannons to.
<p>Kevin Takes down my info. Instantly Quotes 933.00 for a year - for both
of my vehicles. Saving me 279.20.
<p>So I call The "Erie" Rep Back - go thru all the info again. He promises to
get back to me tomorrow.
<p>But NO MATTER what my 2nd Quote is - I just Pocketed an Extra 279.20!
<p>P.S. - Consumer Reports March 2017 - has a list of Which Insurance
Companies are Cheapest in your State. Which is WHY I called Erie. CR
also ranked Erie as way higher than Progressive in "Customer Satisfaction."
Which is Why I googled and Called Them First.
<p>P.P.S. - The owner of the Local Insurance Company Agreed that "Erie"
Was Good. But he thought his Quote and Erie Quote would be about the same.
<p>But if the Quotes are close - WHO would you rather deal with? The owner
of the entire Business OR a "Regular" insurance Agent?
<p>As Homer Simpson says, "DUH!"
