AARP Hartford Complaint - Exorbitant premiums
HARTFORD,., CONNECTICUT -- I first must note, I have been driving California streets since I was 16 years old....paid a lot for Insurance when I had teenagers..I personally have had one ticket and no accidents...when I became eligible to apply to Hartford I was so happy because their prices were reasonable and being now a Senior, it was a relief!! In April of this year I was leaving my home, ( I live in the foothils and the driveways are sloped) my car has low fenders all around..and I hit my fender at the end of the driveway..I needed to have it fixed as it would eventually fall off and create a bigger accident..Well, I did and surprise! Hartford reported me to DMV! AND raised my premiums 310 percent! according to the customer service representative..They are actually expecting me to pay them over 3,000 a year from 700.00!!!!!NO WAY!! I am furious! Is there a way to send this letter to DMV and get this off my record? Is anyone going to slap Hartford for taking advantage of us? I can imagine some folks just go along and continue paying these prices and never notice..I think that is what Hartford is hoping for..Shame on you Hartford! and your advertising gimmicks!!!I know many people who have inquired about you and I always had a positive thing to say about you, but NO MORE!I've already had quotes from other insurance companies and even with that "DMV" report that you made. It is still WAY cheaper..Thanks for nothing!
