Safeco Corp Complaint - Low Ball Appraisal Of Classic Vehicle
I had an insured Safeco driver hit me from behind at about 60 MPH. I was lucky to be moving at 40 MPH or I would have been severely injured. Hit me hard enough to shatter the back window. It was a rainy night and he said he lost control on a curve. He had bald tires. I stopped and he almost hit me again. I think he fell asleep at the wheel.
I have a lower back injury and they offered me $ 1300 to salvage my vehicle. The cost to repair was estimated at $ 2700. It is a rare vehicle . I can find only 2 like it, they are going for $ 4500 and $10500. The value they offered is less than 1/3 of the true value. I have sent them the values, they will not respond. I have fixed the back window and driving it. Has cosmetic damage only.
I had this vehicle about 80 % restored. What a cold hearted, screw the hurt party, this company is. I just want the vehicle repaired. I will not accept a salvage title.
I will do all I can to show what a bad faith company Safeco is. I take this vehicle to a lot of car shows, I will have a flier up near the damage with the Safeco company Logo and the story of their lack of any ethics and refusal to do the right thing and fix the truck. I plan to sue the driver and let him fight with the lowlife company.
I have never felt more cheated in my life. This company should not even be in the insurance business.
