    If businesses can look at credit reports about people and all kinds of information, consumers should be able to access all the complaints people file against businesses. People should start filing complaints with the Better Business Bureau against unsrupulous businesses. Consumers should have information about businesses just as businesses have information on consumers. Fair is fair.

    Yes… please follow these recomendations.

    Please… be scared of the big companies and believe that they are frightened of having a level playing field.

    Be certain to throw potential commission out of your office by refusing to handle a company.

    I’m sorry… some of this advice is terrible and horribly inaccurate.
    Some of it is great, but not all of it.

    Hmmm….I guess it’s not about getting the consumer the best rate after all….it’s about what you guys can do to make money. Heaven forbid that the larger carriers that may be able to offer the best rates and service elect not to write in Mass.

    Sorry Bill, but these are tips to agents about how to make more money. This is industry advice, if anything, there is no reason to make it public in this way.

    I believe you may have let the Geico commercials go to your head Bill. I’ve lived in California the last 3 years before moving to Mass. I have had a policy with Geico, Progressive, and an Independent agent. Geico and Progressive’s service was good, not great by any means…not any better than what I now see in Massachusetts. Oh and by the way, I saved over $600 a year by going with the independent agent on similar coverages.
