Progressive Auto Insurance Complaint - Auto Insurance Ripoff
WALDORF, MARYLAND -- On Thursday Aug 13, 2009, early in the mornig, a Progressive client rearended my wife on her way to work. The State police stopped and did their report, the other person was at fault. I chose to contact the at faults insurance co. to get the car checked and get it in the shop. BAD move on my part since the insurance company was progerssive. Within a week they had the car assesed as totaled and wanted to give me a check for less than th car ws worth. I said NO WAY since I knew for a fact6 that the car was repairable. I had it tows to the dealer that had sold it to me TWO days prior to the accident. They contacteed my insurance co. (GEICO) and gave them a correct estimate.
Upon the dealers appraisal, we also found a hole in the oil pan! How that got there is the process of a fraud investigation that progressive is now facing. I say this experience with progressive makes me shutter at what their customers must face. I for one will never deal with them. I will let my insurance co. handle them from now on.
