Excuse me if it's unintelligible. I rushing right now.
I got in car accident in 2017 and Geico initially said I was at-fault for the accident. Long story short, I just had the tires installed two days prior and I had a blowout that exited the sidewall indicating the tire was defective or a hitman didn't finish the job. I worked my way up the chain at Walmart (who sold me the tires) and then I was told to contact Simple Tire. Walmart gives me some manger's personal number; he writes a check and assumes liability ( yes, I have the paperwork). Geico then changes the at-fault to not at-fault once I provide the paperwork. As of today, Geico still has me not at-fault but every time I do a quote online (for any company), these different companies keep telling me I'm at fault or I have to do go through a waiting period before I can get a proper quote. How do I go about getting the at-fault removed? It's always online from some consumer report that apprentice doesn't get updated. This has been on-going for 2 and half years but it's really an issue now since I just moved to Florida and need new insurance soon. Insurance went from around 130 to a quoted 346, only going as low as 250-ish.
So, my renewal with Geico is due in a few weeks..They are quoting me about $900 more per month than what I used to pay. I obviously can’t pay it, since it’s basically more than my rent. I’m in NC.
Over the past 5 years, my husband’s had: 1 non at fault accident (car backed into his parked car)
I’ve had: 1 at-fault, not serious (parking lot incident, the other driver and I both at fault $1,300) 1- not at fault (hit and run, other driver never found/charged and I only had liability at the time..so Geico ended up not paying anything out)
We apparently had accident forgiveness from Geico, so I thought that at least one of these wouldn’t be taken into consideration. Is there anything I can do? I’ve been shopping around and comparing quotes..Most of them looking to be in the $300-500 range per month. Credit scores are above 650.
I was rear-ended about a month ago by a woman driving her boyfriend's work car. He had commerical Geico insurance. The police came took a report and she willingly stated that she was at fault.
I reported a claim with Geico (everything had to be through phone as it was commerical). The insurance agent was polite and took my information. Later she called me saying she couldn't reach the policy holder and asked for the police report number to verify my story, which I gave. Last week she called saying she was closing the claim because the police report had not come in "yet". How is this a valid reason to close a claim? I'm assuming there must be some performance numbers she needs to meet with closed claims but somehow closing a case before all the information has been gathered makes little sense to me.
I've called her office back and left a message, but if she refuses to anything about it what is my next course of action? Calling the police station myself? This takes place is Massachusetts by the waym
