Re: Auto Insurance

My wife (21) and I (24) pay $2700/year. We have Virginia Farm Bureau. They are ok. I have a ticket and an accident on my record (35 months ago). We have 4 vehicles on the policy (2005 4Runner, 2006 Jeep, 2001 Civic, 1993 Integra). I shop around quite a bit, but no other company comes up with anything better. I'm counting on it going down when I turn 25. (But then going back up when I buy a Corvette ).

Unfortunately, that is the name of the game. Since the insurance company is a corporation, they must make profits. If they don't make profits, then the stockholders will fire the corporate officers--and the stockholders only care about their return on investment--not about ethics. This is exactly the type of behavior which gives me a terrible feeling about insurance in general.

Re: Auto Insurance

I have Amica for renter's insurance, and I am currently in the process of filing a claim because my apartment was broken into. They seem to be doing a good job, but the process isn't yet complete.

As for auto insurance, I have Direct. They don't seem to be that good, but I think they are the cheapest in my area (I haven't done much research).

After looking at the other poster's rates, I think I must be paying too much. However, I have two cars. One is an 88 chevy pickup with liability only coverage, so it shouldn't affect my rates that much. I also have a high performance car, and I pay $2000 per year with no accidents or tickets.

Is that too high?

When you turn 25, your rate will drop.

Also when you get married.

I put my wife's vehicle on my policy before we got married. After we got married it dropped $1k/ year.

Re: Auto Insurance

TMC is also under 25, has three tickets and pays half of what I do. That's what caught my eye. However, we live in different markets, so that could change everything...I guess.

That truck is probably ~$400 a year extra for you and he has a Mazda 5, which isn't quite an M3 in the insurance company's eyes.

Well THAT explains the high rate!

It's expensive for them to repair it if someone hits you. REALLY expensive.

It's "considered" a sports car. It's a Mazda3. We just got our new bill and my fiancee and I combined pay $639 for her 2001 Altima and my 2004 Mazda3. So I guess that isn't bad.

Yep. It won't be long until I sell it.

Statefarm is not a stock company and does not sell shares of stock so they do not have stockholders to answer too.
