Car insurance?

I am looking for a new insurance company now that State Farm requires a car to be at a shop before they will look at it.

Any one use Progressive or Met Life?

Nothing but praise for Progressive. I have it. They beat Geico and Esurance for me on two L67'*.

A friend with progressive got rear-ended towing my trailer last month. Within an HOUR, they had a loaner vehicle and were back on their way to the campsite.

Progressive FTW.

I only went with them because they had the lowest rates around. Geico was 3x any of the other quotes. I have not had to use my insurance at all yet (knock on wood), but I know I would be treated good.

Check into 21st. They beat my Esurance rate by almost 300 bucks per 6 month term.

AND....gave me better coverage to boot.

Thanks for the fast reply.

So Progressive handles every thing over the phone?

I looked in the phone book and they only have a 1-800 phone number.

And they have adjusters that usually hit you AT the accident scene.
