We have 21st Century now. They are a division of Farmers.
We carry pretty good coverage and low deductibles and they even have a way of working with you on modified vehicles.

I initially found them when I saw a note on my statement for the Jeep payment to get "Jeep Insurance"
Back then they were AIG, but since the big bail out they were sold off to Farmers.

We have had to have windshields replaced only, but they have been very good to us and our premiums are certainly a lot lower than they were with Allstate. For about $140 a month the truck, Jeep and trailer are all have full coverage with $250 collision ded. and $50 comp ded.
06 Rubi with some sort of double ended, chrome knobbed, cross threaded, infinitely adjustable, frequently breakable, worn out flammywhammers zip tied onto it.
It used to be a jeep thing... til that sh!t broke!

I've had Progressive for the past 14 years... and for the most part it's been ok... until you have to deal with an accident claim. I have had 3 claims with them in those 14 years and each and every time my vehicle repairs were done like crap. Granted most of this is due to the shop's plain ineptness, but since Progressive pretty much dictates where you take your car for repairs I tend to lay the same amount of blame on them. Most recent was with my 03 PT Cruiser GT. The panel fitting and paint repair probably could have been done better by a bunch of blind monkeys with hammers, strung out on crack. On top of that half the replacement parts were cheap aftermarket knockoffs and things that worked prior to the repair were now broken or didn't work properly. Finally after a month and 3 visits to the shop along with countless phone calls, I finally have a car that somewhat resembles the car prior to the accident.

Needless to say once I get my deductible back and finally get this fiasco behind me I will be switching to Allstate.. At the very least I'll get a discount for having my home owners with them as well.

Oh yeah whenever I see Flo on a Progressive commercial I get the strange urge to want to stuff the Gieco Gecko down her throat.
It's my Jeep thing, and that's what you won't understand.

I've had almost everything... my wife REALLY likes to back into stuff. (to include a police cruiser and BOTH of my Jeeps! bought the JK in DEC and she backed into it in FEB... busted her window, dented her door, NO jeep damage, and she has a nice breeze in her van to this day...) I had good luck with progressive covering a few claims, but then they dropped us... Geico's claim response was horrific. Allstate got SCREWED by the shop that fixed my wife's truck last time, and I told em, and they did nothing (no bickering about the claim though, as long as it went to the shop they liked... the one that added a bunch of extras to the bill...?)

USAA has not given us any flak at all, we have the lowest deductable we've ever had, because they are cheap enough we can afford it, and they've covered 2 mishaps so far without changing our rate. After having been with them for two years, they also extended the coverage term out to 18 months (I think) at a time, so we hardly ever have to mess with the flippin cards even If they've opened to non-vets, I'd definitely look into it.
'71 DJ-5 (that isn't a typo)
'10 JKU Sport RHD

RHD... it's a jeep thing

My family has been with Geico for the past 15-16 years now. They were pretty much the only insurance company that would insure my dads car when we got here from Russia, so my parents are pretty loyal with them. They have also been very good in claims and customer service. In addition they let us get repairs at our mechanic when the repair is for an accident. I will most likely be staying with them once I get my Jeep. But yeah, so far my parents have had no problems with Geico in the 15 years we have been with them. (knock on wood)

I work for one of the insurance companies commonly mentioned, and have my own personal insurance with another company commonly mentioned. I can't get great rates with my own company! What's wrong with that!

BTW, I don't work in the auto side of the house so don't blame me for any auto related problems.
