What was the price difference between Allstate and Progressive with the Allstate discount you were getting before?I’ve been with Allstate for over a decade. I’m in my 30’s, have my house, cars, and several other policies with Allstate. They recently got rid of their professional discounts and I got a huge price increase. My wife and I both have clean driving records, no collisions or legal issues. I pulled a quote from progressive and they beat the auto policy by $1700 a year. I went to aaa and got a quote of almost $1000 less a year.
That's a broker, not an agent.You should establish a relationship with an agent who represents multiple companies. Let them do the foot work comparing company rates. I've know our agent since she was in the 8th grade! She's been our agent for 25 years. Every year or two she shops rates on our house and vehicles. We have State Farm on our vehicles including our classic FJ40. Progressive covers our RV and UTV.
Best thing to do with insurance is shop around and let them know your shopping for best price. I was with Allstate for a long time and when I first got a 4 door JK 6-7 years ago they jacked up my insurance to $120 month. I ended up with Geico and have remained with them and only pay $67 a month for full coverage and road side assistance and some others miscellaneous extras. Progressive kept hitting me up with their emails on how they can save me up to XXX amount. Let them do a quote and it was above $120 a month. Just my experience and observations over the years that its best to shop around.Thanks everyone! Just checked with Progressive and we are down below a 100 on what seems to be a like-for-like comparison. Will continue the quest (incl. home insurance), but thanks again to everyone that read and came with good suggestions!
