"I have been with Progressive for over 7 years and had one minor accident claim. They paid the claim and my rates didnt increase and everything was fine. Then I got a 2 pt. defective vehicle ticket and my rates shot up 25% at my next renewal. I havent had any prior tickets during my time with this company and I was shocked at how much my rate went up. When I called to ask about the increase they said it was primarily due to the ticket and a slight increase from normal rate increases. I cant believe a non-moving violation will increase your rate so much with this company. I will be shopping around and finding another insurance company who has a better policy on minor non-moving violations. How can a company not increase rates for a claim they paid out for and then increase rates for a minor traffic offense? "

"My daughter totaled a used vehicle that I her father bought insured myself one day after the policy went into effect. She was a honor student works full-time and has a 3 month old baby who she is raising herself. Progressive is investigating her like she is a criminal I would highly recommend to anyone considering using Progressive to stay clear of this company"

"Obtained coverage based on their recommendations agreed to the amount. Once we signed for coverage and they "reviewed" our information the coverage went up 3000.00. Progressive says the agent gave them the wrong information Agent says Progressive told THEM how to classify the business. Neither one will do anything about the additional 3000.00 due from US."

"Website is full of lies and deceit do your own math when they attempt to explain how much a total loss costs. They add a credit to a debit I was involved in accident other driver clearly at fault his company recognized this but Progressive "grabbed the claim stating they could remove the burden and settle it quickly. 18 days not even close I don't know how they claim 7 days. Why would Progressive grab a zero fault claim? The answer lies in subjugation and they will make their money at my cost. I have taken copious notes caught them in 6 lies 3 threats and their towing operators are even worse... I have to hire an attorney to protect my rights from my own insurance company FYI State Farm insurer of at fault party has settled with their customer who is very happy with their process. Run Away Quickly run away from them."

"Progressive is playing a monopoly for new commercial companies providing a non-set prices which are extremely high. Their price explanation is that prices vary. My insurance is double in price where my friend has same business with same coverage's MORE drivers and pays a fraction."

"I only got a check for 500.00 when my claim estimate was over 833.00 . feel used and taken advantage of. I pay each month do my own research about the claim myself got the video of the accident myself-and this is what I get? 500.00"

"My main and only complaints with Progressive are regarding the claims adjuster. I did not feel he represented my interests explained information and the process to me to my satisfaction and has made the claims process even more frustrating and inconvenient for me. Up until this experience I have had no reason to dislike Progressive. But I may now research switching companies after this claim is resolved."

"I had American Family before switching to Progressive. When I switched my one year premium dropped 400 for the same coverage. I have had to file two claims with Progressive one for a not-at-fault accident and one for an at-fault. Both were handled very quickly and well. My car was a total loss in one instance and I was not 100% satisfied with the payout but I think that is fairly common across the board when it comes to total losses. One little hint when searching for insurance go through an agent who works for several different companies. They can quickly compare the different companies to find the best rate for you. Also they can quickly make any changes to your policy and answer your questions MUCH better and more quickly than a large insurance company will. Thanks"

"I am 53 and have not had a claim nor ticket in 28 years. I received a very good quote on 4 vehicles and decided to go with Progressive. I paid in full for 6 months. A month later they came back and said they had 'mis-quoted' and wanted another 47.00. Then after the first 6 months when it came time to renew still no claims or violations the new policy was 200 more than the previous 6 months... The ol' Bait and Switch' Buyer beware......."

"I hate insurance companies. I don't trust any of them. But I have to admit we have had great service and prices with Progressive I can't even believe I'm saying this. My wife had an accident that totaled our car while we were out of state. No injuries just property damage to car. Everything was settled in a week and a half. Adjuster and folks on the phone couldn't have been nicer or more competent. I think it was because we were dealing with a small town but I'm very impressed."

"got in a car accident and totaled my car - gave me a check for the car within a week. that part was great. then they jacked up my insurance costs at renewal time to the tune of an additional 250 a year this was not related to the accident that price went up within the month. called to ask why - no reason just a standard increase. nothing to do with my driving record. said it was typical rate for the area that i lived in. i said i have lived in the same location for 20 years what has changed in the last six months. no answer just repeated that the increase was normal. i shopped around and switched insurance carriers - seems like a bait and switch operation to me.

I was told because of all the claims made and because of my age 67.. I will never recommend this company. All there commercials on TV is why our rates are going up. I have three words for you FLo.

"I have had an auto claim which they handled to my satisfaction. I also had my home insured always paid my annual premium on time and did not file a claim for close to 30 years then suddenly received an impersonal xeroxed form letter in the mail stating that my policy would be canceled effective a month from now because of one or more of the following three reasons all bogus reasons that did not really apply to my case. Only one of the three seems to have some validity my house is located close to a regional park which has easy access to fire-fighting equipment and has never had a fire. I also had a septic tank repair bill of about 2000 and after receiving my rejection letter I decided to make a claim which they denied. What a letdown all the thousands of dollars paid to this rip-off company over all those years and to end up being treated worse than a dog. "

Rates have been going up a lot though on home insurance lately over 40% this year 30% the year prior and I have never filed a claim so probably switching companies.

"Had the worse insurance experience with this company.I never received mail from them or email. I only received one piece of mail stating I was at risk for having the policy cancelled due to not sending them a copy of my license. I had faxed it over and next thing you know ..they cancelled my policy.. when I called in they had told me they sent me letters and emails stating the copy of license was no good....never received anything..then.. I had to redo my entire policy...however now it was 200 more since I had had no car insurance...there was supposedly nothing the could do. . .I have found a better car insurance company that is so much cheaper than progressive regardless of whether I had insurance or not. Customer service and supervisors are unhelpful and rude. Never again"

"Have had Progressive Insurance for over 8 years. No tickets in 40 years. Had at fault backing accident totaling 1725.00. Had Progressive "Diamond Membership" which was to forgive both minor and major accidents. Found out direct from Progressive that a minor accident was only 500.00 limit and a major accident was only 1000.00 limit. Are they serious? As claim was 1725.00 for first accident this put me above the major accident cost level and they penalized me 4 points and drastically raised my rates BEWARE of this company"

"My new motorcycle got stolen after half a year. When calculating the retail/compensation value they did not take transportation licensing fees etc. into account since they where separate points on the original bill leaving me with around a 1000 to pay out of pocket for getting a replacement. So effectively I get for a 6000 motorcycle 4000 after half a year 33% value loss in 1/2 year. I need an insurance that is reliable and not one that accomplishes low rates through low performance."

"Ha ha. Progressive is charging me extra monthly. I was in a auto accident a bad one. The idiotic kid who blew the stop sign and did not have insurance has made my life hell. Since my insurance had to do a underwriters policy Progressive feels it is ok to charge me extra monthly. HMMMM I get hit by an uninsured drive die come back and now Progressive says ta dah you have to pay more on insurance. Whatever. Now the kicker after having a policy for years with them with no claims no late payments pay ahead good snapshot Progressive contacts me tonight to tell that they think I am getting discounts that I do not deserve I am going to have to pay more. SERIOUSLY. I have a solo policy with them me and my fiancee have a joint policy with them even tho because of the wreck I am still unable to operate the vehicle the joint policy is under so they should feel lucky we have even kept insurance on it. And out of the blue they think I am getting things I do not deserve and they want me to pay more. I do not think so. Is this how Progressive wants to do business with good hard working American customers?Guess we will see. "

"I had a policy w/ Progressive for 9 years. Each and every year it went up and up and up. Now mind you I never had a claim it just went up and up and up. Yet I would see all the commercials touting how progressive did sooooooo much for their customers. Sure they did just not to this customer. Progressive told me that my 725 credit rating was less than desirable. Low and behold I got smart and called around. What did I find Multiple insurance companies that not only desired my credit rating BUT had substantially LOWER insurance premiums. How much lower you ask My progressive 6 month policy would have been paid for in two lousy months. So you ask what did I do Well I called progressive to see what they would do for me. Guess what they lowered my premium guess my credit rating got better in their eyes when I asked them why they just didnt give me the lower number to start I was met with stammering and stuttering on the phone. Oh and by the way Progressive didnt match the premium didnt come anywhere near it. Want to know what the Progressive agent said to me She said that if it were her she would jump all over that other insurance company policy and save my money. Gee finally an honest response. FYI the new insurance company is rated in the top 5 in the country."

"I have been with Progressive since 2001 I believe. I have had no issues with them and they always have been there for me. When my husband locked our keys in the car at the mall and I was five monthe pregnant It was getting dark and it was raining. I called progressive and they got a tow truck out and opened our doors. I dont remember how long it took. After having a baby you forget things. But I do know it was a sufficient amount of time. They always followed up with calls to let me know how long till they got there and made sure that they did. I moved to Texas before I got Progressive and went with a little hometown insurance company. Not knowing if you move you have to find another insurance company if it is another state. So I got Progressive and have been with them ever since. And when I move I can take them with me so I just need a change of address. I so would recommend Progressive and am sorry any ones had a problem and wouldnt use them. Thanks Very Satisfied with Progressive in New Albany In"

I paid them over 10000 in premiums and they do this over 1500. I will be changing carriers quickly."

"I switched to progressive as their prices/coverage were better than AAA. I enrolled in their snapshot discount prog. have had to call about 10 times. Each time getting different miss-information about the program. The result was that I did not get a renewal discount at the end of 6 months now have to re-enroll start again. When enrolled they forgot to send me the snapshot data collector. Now I have called again to start the enrollment process again. This time I was given differnt info. on the program that contradicts the last call. Very poorly launched program."

The agent cut me off and said "it costs $410,000 to build your house today." My current policy lists the rebuilding price as $280,000.

"Got into an accident, where i was on the main road and had the right of the way, this guy jumped a stop sign and hit my car on the side. Progressive sent their agent who tried telling me that i was at fault too. When they quoted me in the beginning they used Kelly's Blue Book for the value of my car after the accident they declared my car a total because according to the software they use my car's value had depreciated from $8000(a year before the accident) to $3000 ( at the time of the accident). So they offered me $2200 after declaring my car total. Do not use their recommended Mechanics they quoted me $3500 for repairs. I got my car repaired for $2100 on my own. Got a Lawyer and maid they pay. This company is a Cheat, Watch out!!!"

"In over three years, we've filed two glass claims and one collision claim. Very dissatisfied with the handling of the collision claim. Each time talked to representative was told conflicting information. She complained about how far she had to go to view the car at our chosen body shop. She didn't know where the shop was although other Progressive reps frequently there. Requests to elevate to a supervisor were ignored and then difficult to pursue. We're changing companies at next renewal. I believe our problems were related to this claim representative rather than company issues but that's who my interaction was with. Had a separate issue where we called customer service rep (not claims rep) and were quite pleased with the service and genuine desire to get it resolved. "

"Thanks, Progressive, for ruining my life for the last 8 months. I was side swiped off the road by a non-English speaking jerk who also happened ot have Progressive. Spent two days in the hospital, the car had thousands of dollars worth of damage. Couldn't even walk after the accident. I spent the last 6 months getting regular therapy with a chiropracter and a masseuse. Because of the severe pain I get migraines once or more a week and have to frequently take pain meds and valium to relieve the pain. Directly after my accident I had one adjustor, who passed it off to someone else, who passed it off to someone else again. I was sideswiped by the man who swerved into my lane, then tried to run before the cops got there. Within a week they decided I was 100% at fault, so I got an attorney. BOOM-Just like that they dropped my liability to 5%, stating the it was 5% my fault because I "wasn't paying attention to the fact that he was going to hit me so I should have gotten out of the way". Last week I had the IME appointment with their doctor. Got the report today, he said that "my pain is exaggerated, and fake, and made-up". The exercises he had me do, he said I was "Faking pain". So naturally, they cut my medical off not last week when I had the appointment, but a month ago. I knew as soon as I walked in the door to the IME that he had already made my decision before he even met me. The way he asked questions and interrupted me when I tried to answer told me that he was getting paid a LOT of money by Progressive to say that I was not hurt in any way. So that's that. Do you think I'll ever renew with Progressive?? NO. I've been with them for almost 4 years and this is my first accident. Great going Progressive. Bet you won't see these comments on their commercials."

"I purchased a brand new 2009 vehicle in November. On January 11, I received a call that the car was hit while parked and the back of the car was pushed up on the sidewalk. While the cops were still there attending to the other driver, I immediatley called Progressive. It is now February 18, more than a month later, and still no car. They first only thought that there was body damage. But after I picked up the car, I noticed that the car was pulling to the left. The auto shop said that the axle was cracked and it looked like there was some damage to the wheel. They never even examined the wheel. Then when the vehicle had to go out for an alignment (I guess I never realized that there is a difference between a body shop and an auto shop), the other shop scratched the driver side door. While I appreciate the shop getting the vehicle restored to the way it was, it has taken entirely too much time and my rental coverage only covers thirty days. I would have taken it to another shop, but the claims representative said that they will not cover the entire bill, and there would be no guarantees. The auto shop that Progressive sent me to was not qualified to the job and therefore should not be the "only shop in the area" to repair my vehicle in a "timely manner". "

"My car was flooded last summer. The customer service I have received has been horrible. After 5 weeks in the repair shop, I received my car back with silt inside and out and the worst smell imaginable. I began having mechanical problems within a few days as well. The interior was cleaned again and the smell improved, but it was still present. I was told that I would need to prove that mechanical problems were related to the flood in order for them to be repaired. A few small items were repaired. Since some of the problems could not be diagnosed (shaking, loud noises, error codes no longer being recorded), I was told that they would not be fixed. I had to pay out of pocket for a transmission 3.5 months after I got my car back, since I could not prove the flood caused the problem (even though I had never had problems until the flood and there had been filthy flood water in the transmission). I ended up trading my car in (for the price of the transmission) because I could not take the risk of continued problems. I was out of pocket $6000, even though I had full coverage. "

My doctor was very thorough and spent well over an hour with me, even on my followups. I live in Florida and did some research and found out that because of the personal injury law, there is a rule that insurance companies have to pay based on medicare pricing. But my stupid company instead of paying what the doctor billed (and I thought he should have gotten) they said that my case was not complex enough or he shouldn't have spent the time that he did with me. I was scared and had a lot of questions and he really helped me out. I can see why doctors don't want to accept insurance from people anymore. Insurance companies, especially Progressive based in Tampa, Florida, are robbers without the guns."

"I have had two claims two months apart - neither at my fault. Progressive was absolutely great in helping with my claims. The first was a fender bender with only about $1000 worth of damage, the other driver's insurance claimed liability progressive waived my deductible and took care of everything. I was able to take my car to the service center, everyone was very professional - picked it up a week later like brand new. My most current claim was a hit and run outside my residence. Again, took it into the service center they called me yesterday to tell me what they had found, what would need to be done and when it would be ready. I got another call today letting me know that they found more damage on the suspension once they took the panel off and it would take a couple more days to fix. Also, they found missed welding spots from an accident a few years ago (again - not my fault), but fixed by Progressive so they are fixing those as well! (as they should since they guarantee their work) All I can say is that I am very happy to be with them. It has now been about 4 years that I've had coverage with them, my rates have steadily decreased every 6 mos. I had been thinking about shopping around for better rates but with the service that I've received in the past few months, I've decided that I don't mind paying a few extra dollars. I'll be sticking with Progressive."

"I would not normally advertise for a company but I have recently had a really amazing customer service experience I have a lot to say about my recent experience with my car insurance company, Progressive I LOVE PROGRESSIVE After my car wreck last Thursday I was in a lot of pain and very stressed about what would happen to my car, my health, the impact it would have on my daily life, bills, medical costs etc.. etc... Thank you to Progressive my life is so much more pleasant and less stressful at this point I called to make a claim the next day with their claims department. I was not on hold very long and did not have to talk to 20 million computer voices while pressing buttons before I could speak to a person. The gentleman was very courteous and went above and beyond in his empathy and consideration. He expressed concern for my well-being and the outcome of the accident. Sure this is his job, but phone service representatives usually just do what is required of them with very little positive affect in their voice or attitude. He asked what had happened and the whole time had a very sincere concerned tone "Oh wow, that is awful... you are so lucky it wasn't worse...thank goodness you are ok etc... " He was very calming and helpful He provided any contact numbers I may need and explained the full process of taking care of my claim. He located the nearest body shop for me and called them with me on the line to make the earliest appointment at my convenience. He constantly made sure everything was clear, simple, and without any problems. He provided me with a number to call him directly if I should have any issues. It continued to be an easy and smooth process... When I arrived at the body shop the progressive representative promptly called the rental service then proceeded to go over the damages of the car with me while taking clear photos and checking every little detail. They listened carefully and also seemed concerned. The representative from Hertz arrived very quickly and drove me to the rental location. They were also friendly and clearly explained every part of the rental and what part Progressive covered as well as what my options were with gas, daily insurance etc... Daily insurance for the rentals was usually $25.00 to cover any damage that may occur to the vehicle while in your possession. However, because I was there through Progressive, it only cost me $12.99 daily. This meant that no matter what happened to the vehicle, from a small scratch to it being totaled, I was only responsible for that $12.99 and not held liable. Progressive would also call and extend the rental for me if necessary, so I simply get the keys to a car equivalent to my own or more and drive it for as long as I need. I ended up with an 08 Ford Fusion with dash board controls on the steering wheel, a navigation system, Sirius satellite radio, and an in dash 6cd player :) and get to drive it for the length of my repair at no cost to me accept gas and the optional daily insurance. and there is more... Saturday another representative from Progressive called me. This time an equally kind and considerate woman. She was the one to handle my injuries and personal health coverage. She explained that Progressive will cover 80% of all costs including my x-rays, ambulance ride, ER fees, Cat Scan, and even prescriptions. They would file all the paperwork with the hospital then send paperwork to my health insurance company for the remaining balance. All I had to do was. send them copies of my prescription receipts. She expressed concern and told me not to "over-do-it" at work and to call her if I needed help with anything. She also told me she would call me in a few days to see how I was feeling. Even better, Progressive is reimbursing me for the days I missed at work due to the accident, all I had to do was send copies of my last two paychecks, they even phoned my manager at work for me. This is not my first positive experience with Progressive, last time I just needed some body work after a car battery was left in the road and destroyed my front fender...they had the same great service with a rental...but this time with the medical issues they just knocked my socks off with amazing customer service. in short... if it is in your budget to switch car insurance companies, I strongly suggest looking into rates for Progressive. They are one of the less expensive companies and they also have included pet insurance for your pets traveling with you along with motorcycle, RV, Boat, and other types of insurance. their kindness and amazing guest service has won me over it may be their job, but they do it well and I feel safer and more can at ease because of it ..so anyway... if you want to be worry free in a situation that be devastating, Progressive can help!

"Progressive nickel & dimed me like no other. I signed up because I got a great online quote, but a week or so later, I got a notice stating that I owed them more money (I still don't know why). Later, I added my boyfriend to my policy, which led to a significant increase in my policy; when I called to find out why, I was told that since he had been in an accident (NOT his fault; he was rear ended) that my premium increased. I took him off my insurance, but was still charged $15 for him being insured for 1 day. It is now time to renew, and my premium has gone up nearly $100 since I first signed. I've not gotten any tickets, nor have I been in any accidents. I checked with GEICO, and paid $100 less than what Progressive is charging me. Plus, with GEICO, I have MORE coverage for LESS money. Needless to say, I cancelled my Progressive policy immediately after I was approved through GEICO."

He admitted on the police report to hitting me - he gave a statement to his insurance that he hit me - however progressive still couldn't "Close" this case in my favor... after 3 months and no word from them I called my insurance agent and they said they couldn't reach the other driver's company so they could get the insurance info --- I spent 7 minutes online and looked for the drivers company - not only did I find all of the valid phone numbers - but I then called progressive and gave them phone numbers and addresses - after 8 months of my insurance fighting his insurance in an OPEN and SHUT case - somehow noone could figure out who's fault it was and I lost my WHOLE deductible... What is the point of insurance if I HAVE TO DO ALL THE WORK!"

"they will renew your policy without you knowing even if you don not want it. they will send you to collections the next day when it closes. if you do not know your rights on this matter I would look into it before you sign anything with this company. there are many other companies with alot cheaper rates unless you have dui or dwi they are the only ones. I would not and will not recommend anything about this company"

"I have been a Progressive direct customer for about 10 years. I came to Progressive after Nationwide dropped me. Have never had issues with adding or deleting drivers or vehicles, including bikes and boats. Response and customer service has always been curtious and prompt. Currently looking at Progressive for Homeowners Insurance since it seems like other local companies don't want to make an effort to earn my business."

"I called to ask some questions about not at fault accident that had happened in which there was no damage to my car but was damage to on of the other person's cars. The at fault party didn't have insurance so I wanted to know whether I needed to file a claim just to cover myself. They made me file a claim just to get advice then closed it on the next day because I didn't need to open it to begin with. Just trying to put something on my record so they could raise my rates. "

"They treat their customers like thieves! I am a 22 year old female who is compassionate abt cars. I get my car customized for the past 4 years and one unfortunate night, my car was stolen and burned! I filed a claim with progressive. Its been 2 months and the claim is yet to be resolved. My mother, best friend and I have been in their office twice giving them statements. I have been interrogated and asked if I had anything to do with the burning of my car! Pisses me off because I spent 4 years of my life and alot of money on my car and have been loyal to Progressive but they treat me like a thief and have tried to tell me that I am a bad character! Never get insurance with Progressive. They just want your money! "

"my fiance was in an accident not his fault and suffered whiplash and damages around 2500 to his celica. He decided to use the "concierge" service which seems ideal, a rental car is given and they take care of everything for you. I believe there is a reason this sounds too good to be true. When he picked up his car after repair he realized although the damage of the impact was fixed; a new front accident had occured. Upon talking to the service center they stated it was his fault and interogated him. When he spoke to the rep she said she would look into, the phone message we just received stated "I'm sorry but it is really inconclusive and I don't think the service people are making it up." Needless to say we will be calling the BBB and getting a lawyer involved so others do not need to go through this frustrating and totally unfair sittuation! "

"Progressive's claims departments are rude and assume that everything they say is law. If you question something they try to make you feel stupid. In the end, their insurance premiums are cheap because they don't cover anything in the claims process. I absolutely hate this company."

"I was rear ended (no fault of my own) by a woman who had Progressive insurance. She took responsibility for the accident and I had to deal with Progressive. This has been a total nightmare. They convinced me to take it to their choice of body shop and demanded that I let them replace the bumper on my 2006 BMW with a re-manufactured bumper because it was cheaper for them. They told me if I got a new bumper I would have to pay the difference (which was not the case). They refused to do anything different so I got my car back and took it to the body shop of my choice. They turned it around in 48 hours with a new bumper. Everyone I have spoken with at Progressive is horribly rude, confrontational and unreasonable. Fortunately the body shop I used was great and told me to stay out of the loop and they would fight this for me. They are used to dealing with Progressive and go through this type of situation every day with them."

"If you are in an accident with a progressive claim holder, get a lawyer. My case has been passed to three progressive repesentitives so far as the first two quit. The second woman dealing with my case actually advised me that progressive WILL TRY TO RIP YOU OFF. She said they lie and do all they can to give you the least amount of money possible. She was tired of working for progressive-the lies and deception were incongruent with who she was as a person. A few days later, I found out she quit. Sure enough, when it came time to settle, they offered my 1/4 the dollar amount of what I later found out I should have received. Get a lawyer. Don't belive what they tell you because it's their job to give you the least amount of money possible."

"After being insured with them for 4 years, they suddenly were unable to obtain driving record. Provided it to them in August 2006 (in other words, did their job for them)Repeat, July 2007!!!! Changed drivers drivers history to 0 years driving experience and wanted to charge over $1400 per month! This came on the heels of the letter from them stating that they were rescinding their previous termination of our policy that they had notified us of (NEVER SAW IT!) because we no longer lived out of state. I never moved out of state, let alone moved back!!!! Where do they come up with this stuff? Why can they no longer obtain a driving record and claim there is no driving history on an individual they have been insuring for over 4 years? How do they determine that a person who has not moved at all, let alone out of state, has moved to Arizona? To add insult to injury, while trying to sort this mess out and outrageous premium charges due to their ineptness, we were late paying our premium, however when we did pay the 6 month premium, they accepted the payment via phone payment and the money was removed from my bank account. Then they changed the date of the policy after the fact and claimed there was a lapse in coverage! Yet I NEVER received any correspondence stating my insurance was terminated nor did they write a new policy when they changed the date of my coverage period. Now they refuse to to provide an FS-1 for the DMV and I was not notified about any lapse in coverage until 45 days after the lapse occurred! Yet there was no mention of this when they accepted the payment. In order to make a payment, one needs an policy number, if I had no insurance how did can they take my money and apply the payment to a policy that had lapsed? Furthermore after taking time from work, twice in the past year, and driving over 60 miles to the closests DMV office to provide them with a drivng record they still almost 30 days later continued to send bills for over $1400 per month, due to a lack of driving history! These folks are truly incompetant even when it pertains to the simplest of issues! Beware they may have moved you out of state to, if not they still may decide to make you an inexperienced driver despite the fact that you have been driving for 30+ years and then try to charge you $1400 a month and take your money and after the fact claim you had a lapse in coverage! RUN from Proggressive as fast as you can!!! It is a living nightmare! Every time you think you have it fixed, it rears its ugly head again and again! It is akin to being in the movie Groundhog Day, everyday you deal with it and just when you think it is finally resolved, it starts all over again! "

SO I WENT TO THREE OTHER GLASS SHOPS SAME STORY SO WITH MY $100 DEDUCTIBLE I HAD TO PAY AN EXTRA $75 FOR MY WINDSHIELD, SO THEY SHOWED ME WHAT OTHER INSURANCE COMPANIES WOULD PAY THEM AND EVERYONE WAS $100 MORE THAN PROGRESSIVE."

"There is not an insurance company out there with more liars, cheats, crooks, thieves and general scum bags employed. This goes from the desk help at the concierge counters, to the claims agents, to the managers, and probably right on up to the top. If you are looking for insurance please do yourself a favor and choose another company"

"They do not stand by their customers. The at fault driver's insurance company said his client admitted fault but that it is well-known that Progressive agents don't back up their client so they figured they could just pay any percentage they wanted which ended up costing thousands and we were competely ignored by Progressive. Is that even legal? "

"I got rearended on 10/30/2006 by a guy going 47 miles per hour in a merging lane i was stopped because the vehicle in front of me was stopped. he hit me so hard i hit my head on the rear window of my truck at least 3 times. police came made out report and sent it in, they responded very quickly to the repair of the vehicle, but don't have a claim for an injury because they treat you like crap. they sent a representative out to my house and three times he asked me how much my injury was worth to me.and each time i told him the same thing i am not signing anything because i don't know what is wrong with my neck and shoulder. he quit bugging me but then the phone calls from the insurance company started. they offered me, for my loss wages $50.00 and I make a little bit less than that per hour. I told them that they shouldn,t be so generous as I might need a few groceries inbetween and then I asked this rep if she would accept the offer and she said no because it was outlandish. I said thank you and that she answered my questions for me, and we will not be talking anymore. It is almost a year later and i have had a ct scan and 2 mri's and also went to one of their paid off doctors who told me to my face at the examination that i would benefit greatly from deep traction. Then he sends a report to my attorney that there isn't anything wrong with me. O gees I wonder how he sleeps at night knowing that he is paid to lie.I still have headaches and a lot of neck pain some days good and some days bad that I have to use a home traction unit "

Answer: Recently premiums has been increased, various things wlll be considered. Q: What is specific reason for increasing premium. No Answer. He is explaing general situation. Q: why I was cheated with lesser insurance quote by applying discount for online sign up , even though I purchasedinsurane on phone. This is the way converstaion went. Dont beleive these guys, while getting insurance try to get all details and if you renew in future , what consitiond iwll be applied."

"Was rear-ended at red light by some one driving at a high speed (45 mph zone) who was talking on cell phone. Suffered brain injury , 9 herniated disks, polyradiculopathy, Fibromygla (sp?) and now have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and can't drive. Neurologist said that if not for the accident, the MS would have probably never came out in my lifetime. Current brain MRI says I have multiple lesions and signal abnormalities consistant with MS. Progressive paid lost wages for a year before being sent to their paid-off quack (who is legally protected in Michigan), who examined me for 5 minutes and said nothing was wrong with me and there were nothing but lies through the whole report. They then cut off my lost wages (which Michigan No-Fault law entitles you to 3 years of paid wages (85%) and unlimited medical) and my claim was denied and closed. And then come to find out, none of medical bills were paid by them (I had my own primary insurance at the time and Progressive was secondary) (now in collection and my credit has been destroyed). Everytime I see a Progressive commercial, I want to through something at the TV. It makes me sick that their profits are in the billions and now my healthcare (Medicaid) and bills will need to be paid by taxpayers and other community services. I even had extra underinsurance/uninsurance coverage in case someone hit me that didn't have insurance or did not have enough liability insurance. What the hell did I pay extra for? Nothing!!! I will probably lose my home since I can't work. They may pay out claims to damaged vehicles, but not for injuries. I even called State of Michigan's Insurance office who regulates these insurance companies and was told they couldn't do anything. Go find an attorney is what they told me. Don't get fooled by their hip commercials. They are probably the worst out there for unpaid injury claims. I am going to try to round up people (voulnteers)who have also been denied serious injury claims in Michigan or anybody that wants to help, to do a video (cannot do by myself) on current Michigan law and the changes that need to be made for injuries from accidents (it has passed in the house and now goes to the Senate (who will probably shoot it down). About 95% (probably more) of serious injuries are denied in the county courts and never make it to a jury because they don't meet the current threshholds (which are absolutely ridiculous). If anybody is interested in the making of the video, please leave an email address on here so I can contact you. If you are from Progressive insurance company, I don't want to hear from you unless it is positive (which I doubt). Also, beware that these insurance companies watch for anything an injured person might post on the interent that they can use against them. P.S. I had someone type this for me. Also, dropped my insurance with Progressive after they closed my claim and went with another before I couldn't drive anymore. "

"Have been with Progressive for nearly 5 years. They have given me the best rates of all insurance companies and their customer service has always been good. I made a glass claim back in 2006 and they sent a glass company out to my job 2 days later to replace my windshield (no out of pocket expense due to Florida law and a waived claim on my policy). I made my second claim this past week. It has been a bit nervewracking as neither myself or Progressive is sure the at fault driver has valid insurance or not. However my claims adjuster and the service center have been awesome in letting me know what steps I need to take if her insurance comes back invalid. Only downside is their Tampa Bay service center is located way out in the sticks which is a 35 minute drive from downtown Tampa and 35 minutes from St. Petersburg. "
