Progressive in PA is sneaky. I was struck by a Progressive insured driver and only got half of the cars value because they allowed the other person to be insured at the bare state minimum. Most insurance companies in this area do not allow it... because I could have sued her for everything she had, except she had nothing, not even a home. It was all on her parents. From the sounds of it, they didn't cooperate very well with her, either, AND it took 5 months to settle the claim .

I guess that'* my dealings...

I was with GEICO for a year cause they were the cheapest for me. Then after hearing of Wren and others' happiness with Progressive, I checked another quote with them (wasn't twenty-five yet) and they were over $100 for the exact same policy, so I am now with Progressive. I haven't really had to interact with either of them otherwise, but overall I've heard about equal service from both, so I went with the more affordable. They are faster at getting paperwork to you than GEICO was, I can say that for sure, lol.

Progressive was the cheapest place i found either locally or on the internet.

I saw a commercial that said Progressive now offeres pet injury insurance at no additional charge. All you gotta do is call and add it on. Not a bad idea if you transport your pets a lot.

Why do you insist on putting full coverage on a 10 year old truck?

Save the full coverage costs and throw that money into a high-yield account.

i think what some people for get is full coverage only helps if you hit something or something random happens to your car with no other car hitting you..

If someone else hits you they pay for it even if yo have no insurance.
So unless you hit things alot or you plan on a tree falling on it.. dont waste the $

In most states, yes. But not in Michigan. MI is a no fault state. Regardless of who is at fault, the vehicle owner is responsible for repairing their own vehicle.

But, I still agree that there'* no reason to throw good money at full coverage on an old, average vehicle (unless there'* a lien on it).

might want to check on that. NY is a No Fault state also. and the way you work it is if someone hits you. you get there info and call there insurance Company and make the claim through them.
