Geico Corporation Complaint - Cute Gecko But Please Don't Buy The Insurance - You'll Regret It.
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA -- This is just to warn folks that you get what you pay for (and sometimes even less!). I used to have Geico insurance and thought it was great b/c it was cheap. That is until I needed to use it.
To make a long story short, I had a 6 month old car. I was hit by a hit-and-run driver. I took my car to the "Geico recommended" body shop for repairs. Well I waited for ANOTHER 6 months for my car to be repaired. For this entire 6 months I had to continue to pay car payments AND insurance premiums. When I got the car back the repairs were terrible. The frame had actually been welded back together and the body shop worker told me the car should have been totaled but they were instructed to repair it by Geico.
When I questioned Geico on it, I have NEVER been treated SO rudely by any group of individuals in my entire life. I was accused of lying by one of the adjusters because he didn't believe I'd been hit by a hit-and-run driver, even though I had several witnesses!
After spending a lot of money for attorneys, I finally was successful in getting the car totaled but was paid less than the car was originally worth before the accident.
I'm glad it's over but want to make one final point in closing. I've done some research to find out what happened to the car after it was totaled by Geico. Seems they sold it WITHOUT DISCLOSING THAT IT HAD BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT, WHICH IS ILLEGAL. Now, is it worth saving a few dollars to use this company????
