Mercury Reviews and Customer Comments

"True evaluation is how they handle claims. I have not had to file a claim yet."

"I had a hit-and-run which was captured on surveillance video. Mercury sent me to one of their recommended body shops for an estimate. They give me an estimate. After case was resolved I opted for a cash payout. Mercury sent me a check in the amount of the estimate, About two weeks later they sent me a letter saying they had overpaid me because the estimate had been revised and was about half the original amount. They demanded that I send them a refund. "

"We've had Mercury for over 10 years. We switched to Mercury after observing their claim handling when we had AAA and were involved in a not-at-fault accident w/ a driver covered under Mercury. AAA was exceedingly negligent in their handling of the case and not for the first time either Mercury, on the other hand was courteous and efficient. So we switched our auto and home out of the useless AAA and into Mercury, and dropped our premiums significantly as well. We're fortunate to have a very good insurance agent, who worked closely with us to help optimize our coverage.>>Over the 10+ years with mercury, we've been involved in our fair share of accidents and mishaps, one of which we were at fault. In every instance, Mercury handled the claims process very fairly.>>All well and good. Unfortunately, now that we just bought a rather expensive car and are shopping for insurance, we're discovering that Mercury's premium for high-end luxury cars is significantly above what competing insurance companies are quoting for the same level of coverage. Hmmm....>"
