MIDVALE, UTAH -- When I signed up with nationwide I was quoted a resonable price. Of course the price quoted and the price I got after I signed up was very different. so after about a year of paying too much I switched to a company that was way less and I called Nationwide to cancel my account. they said that I needed to send in a written and signed cancellation letter. So with my last payment I sent my cancellation letter and what a wait off my shoulders. Until about a month and a half later I get a bill from them saying I owe so much for the last month. so I call them and they say they must not have received the letter and to fax another one. so I did and I guess they didn't get that either. I am so mad right now and you can bet I am not paying two car insurance companies. Although I am happy to pay my new company because they treat me so well (usaa) unlike nationwide, I just want to be free from their clutches.2 Replies - Latest reply on 09/14/2007Add reply

SUPRISE, ARIZONA -- I purchased a pair of glasses back in Dec 2012. When I picked them up I started wearing them . Well they gave me a headache. I called the company and took them back, 3 times we did this. Picked them up the last time and they told me there was nothing else they could do for me. So I kept them. I tried to wear them and they still gave me a headache.
Now I am in Idaho and I took them into an Eye Dr. here who checked them out and low and behold they were off ( The PD) they were off 7 mm and off 8 mm to my old glasses to what they were suppose to match. They were suppose to be 30.5 on one side and 31 on the other side. They even built 2 other sets that were done in the mean time and they all gave me a headache.
Now my Eye Dr would like 158.00 to make them right. Why should I pay him when I have already paid to have them fixed and they could not fix them. NATIONWIDE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA -- My car was hit by a Nationwide insured individual. The appraiser they sent out wrote an estimate for 1/3 of the damage as if they expected me to accept it. I have years of experience in auto repair and pointed out the frame and structural damage and he ignored it all. This is after 3 days of car sitting wrecked and no offer of a rental. It would seem to me that Nationwide policy is to rip people off for the actual money as when I complained he was defended by company. I wonder how many thousands of people have been shorted by Nationwide, seems like criminal behavior to me1 Replies - Latest reply on 06/27/2013Add reply

I was involved in a minor accident in February. The estimate for repair by a Nationwide approved estimator was below what would raise insurance rates. The repair location found additional damage and Nationwide accepted the damage which put me over the acceptable limit. I should have been contacted to discuss or pay the additional amount. Now I will be paying a substantial amount to Nationwide for the next three years. It was to their advantage to not tell me about the additional charges and not allow me to make up the difference. The insurance industry should mandate that the customer be informed and allowed to pay for any additional damages at the customer's choice. Add reply

GREENWOOD, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I have been insured by Nationwide for probably 10 years. I was thinking of switching to save some money but was recently in a wreck. I called my agent Steve Wall and was so impressed I'll never leave. Not only did he help me through the claim but he also drove to the wreck and put all of my tools in his car and drove me to get a rental. My truck was towed, and totaled.

I waited for 3 days no call from the plumber company or nationwide and no hot water now for 7 days. Call Nationwide again just to find out that they declined to replace the water heater and I need to provide a maintenance record.
