Farmers beat my recently increase AAA Insurance home-auto-life policy by over $300 a year. I haven't experienced their service yet, but the price is right. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 10/20/2009Add reply
OHIO -- I've had Farmers insurance for years. They had great rates when I signed on and the rates were reasonably stable at first. However in the last three years my auto policy has gone up nearly 35% and my home owners has gone up 25+%. All this with being a "premium" customer - i.e. good credit, no claims, clean driving record, etc. I also have all of the usual cost reducers in place - high deductibles, low liability coverage, and so on. Farmers - if you can't appreciate your money-making customers, then I am moving on!4 Replies - Latest reply on 09/04/2009Add reply

Suddenly, the homeowner's insurance doubled. When I contacted the agent, she said she'd get back with me regarding why. She never did.
Later, I got divorced and the cars & homes were split up. She continued to bill me for my ex-husband's car and home a year after the divorce was final. I had canceled all my insurance with her, yet six months later she was billing my mortgage company. I paid double on homeowner's and auto-insurance for months after canceling (they just wouldn't cancel it!)
Eventually, I got them to finally refund me the money they owed me for not canceling my policies. I thought it was all over.
A few months later, I get a collections agency harassing me about $24.11 that I owed to them. This was ridiculous. It turned out that my ex owed them $24 for one of his cars.
I still don't know if it's over yet.
I will never buy insurance with them again! I did switch to State Farm & am happy with them so far.
