Due Diligence!!! I’ve moved, changed insurance companies, sought out quotes from other agencies. I’m usually pretty good about doing my homework. HOWEVER…I had State Farm in Hawaii, was pleased with the service from my agent there, so I just picked an agent that was close to where I moved to in DC. WRONG MOVE.
After living in DC for we moved out of DC to Maryland. I canceled the policy in DC, changed to a policy in Maryland…and guess what? All of our paperwork continued to be sent to DC. So I called straightened out the address mishap and then asked for a quote for a new car. Again – the quote was for DC.
So, frustrated with feeling like I would have to figure things out on my own, I decided to shop around. I should also mention I was an Insurance Claims Adjuster and know how to make sure that the quotes had comparable coverage. Progressive would have saved me a bit over a $1000/ for 2 cars and a home but GEICO was even better. $1700/ AND great, easy to use online service and an app!
So there is a silver lining after all…..just not with State Farm!
