Insurance

Who do you guys go thru for the best deal and good overall coverage on your trucks? I am with State Farm and they are charging WAY too much.

Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that. Just depends on your situation, your state, and about 400000 other variables. I will say this, be very weary of the SUPER cheap premiums. Yeah it would be sweet to go form 200 a month to 50 BUT get in a wreck and that cut rate stuff will leave you stuck. "oh sorry, thats not in your policy" or "ohhh, you were wrecked at 7:54, that ends in a n even number, had it been an odd number, you would be covered!" (okay not THAT crazy, but you get my idea)

I have nationwide, 23y/o, had a few oops back in my younger years, and I just went DOWN to 180 a month for full coverage. Good luck! The best I can recommend is beat the phones up and if it sounds too good to be true... IT IS!

I agree with the above post.


I also have St. Farm. Yes it is higher than others out there, but at the same time, I have had to use them 3 times. Each time they were more than fair IMO. You get what you pay for.

Geico was the best deal for me. Just make sure that when you compare quotes that the amount of coverage is the same or you will be comparing apples and oranges.

In the same boat, but with Allstate. I am getting great rates from Farmers insur.. My biggest problem is my 19yr old son makes a big differance in rates.

I use Shelter for all of mine. We get top tier discounts because of the volume of insurance I carry. I have 5 vehicles, 2 boats, a house, other property, and a general liability umbrella policy for less than Erik pays for his truck insurance. He can get the same deal in about another 20 years with responsible behavior and structured planning.

Insurance is gambling. If you reduce your risk exposure, they reduce the premiums. Differing ZIP codes will have differing rates even when all else is the same. Miles driven per year is a big factor and it is somewhat offset by the number of accident free miles you have driven.

Pick a reputable company with a local agent you can count on and stick with them.

Ask to be rerated at least once a year or whenever circumstances change.

Lastly, be sure you understand your coverages. Nothing worse than somebody ripping off your aftermarket radio only to discover that they only cover factory installed accessories.

Man, tell me about it. They want an extra $150 month to add my grandson and he has to be rated on all of ourr vehicles. My agent said I would be better of to get him his own policy so it wouldn't affect ours when he totals out whatever he ends up driving.

I use these smilies because, unlike another forum I visit, there are no smilies giving you the FINGER!!! lol j/k
Glad someone is getting a good deal. The fact that I have ins through WV (one of the most expensive states) also doesn't help
