Re: Motorcycle fire claim

The claims rep probably doesn't know so she gave you a short answer. GEICO likes to delay paying a claim because they make money everyday it is delayed. At least that's what Warren Buffett said. He said an insurance company is the best cash cow you can own. You collect all those premiums and make mo...

Re: Your single biggest challenge right now?

Explaining rate increases of 38% or more. Rating has become so complex underwriters can't tell you why a rate increases. I recently had a homeowner policy that was almost $1,000 per year and on renewal it went to $2,000 and there hadn't been any claims. No one with the company could tell me why. Nee...

Re: College senior interested in insurance career

I got my insurance license when I was 21 years old. I am now 67 and still running my own agency. Like the Farmers commercial says, I have seen a few things in my life. My son now works with me. I don't like to be negative but I am concerned for my son. I don't see a bright future for the independent...

Re: Take the Harford "Agent's Challenge"

Speaking of Wal Mart, I hope every standard carrier in the US partners with them. It won't take long to get their clock cleaned. The average wal mart customer isn't what Hartford, Safeco, Travelers or any other standard market is looking for. Even if there aren't any claims, and we know there will b...

Re: Take the Harford "Agent's Challenge"

I am sick of the term "agency partners". Our Progressive rep has used this term for several years and I finally told him if I heard this term one more time, I will vomit. We are not their agency partner. They, especially Progressive, will cut your throat in a heartbeat and not think twice about it. ...

Re: Need advise here regarding GEICO refusal to pay claim!

I am convinced that delaying or denying a claim is standard procedure with GEICO. I read where Warren Buffet stated that owning an insurance company was the best cash cow you could own. You have all the premiums and can invest the money before you have to pay claims. I have two claims at present whe...
