Damn Geico canceled my insurnace

Post by Picasso » Wed Nov 18, 2009 3:34 pm

Went and did a trade with Scott at E.I. for my 710k for a 712 repair truck. When I went to exchange cars with my insurance I got this good news.

"We have received your request to add a 1973 Pinzgauer to your policy. I apologize, but we do not offer coverage for this type of vehicle. We do recommend speaking with a broker that offers coverage for specialty vehicles."

I've had my 710k with them going on four years. Guess it's time to find another.

Just attempted to go with hagerty.com....ooops I said I take it off road now and again. Those guys dont want to hear that at all.

Insurance woes

I tried Geiko, Americanfamily, Progresive and several others whos names I forget. The only mainstream company that I found that would insure mine is Allstate.

Progressive will do Pinzgauers and C303's but Ive only ever had liability coverage on my rare 4x4's.

I had GEICO insurance for several years on my 712M. They must have had a policy change about 2 years ago and they canceled my insurance on my 712M because of the 6 wheels. So dropped all my coverage 3 cars and my home and put it all in Progressive. GEICO did not like that I canceled the other items but what do they expect. I still get phone calls and letters from GEICO letting me know that it would be a good time to come back. I doubt it.

P.S. When they called to cancel I let the guy know on the phone that it was just like a hummer and they insure hummers, he apologized and said there is nothing he can do about it. and said good bye and probably thought he hung up the phone. I could hear him in the background making fun of me and my vehicle and how stupid I am, his coworkers were laughing then the call was disconnected. To say I was mad at GEICO is an understatement. Hell I still am.

I will never do business with GEICO even though I like the cave man commercials. In the 80s they sent out a questionnaire which among other things asked what type of radar detector you had and if you liked it. If you answered that you had one you were dropped.
If you didn't get stuck, you didn't try hard enough.
