So much to say, so little discretion

I will leave it alone

We are all entitled to our opinion

Just to make MY point clear... nothing to do with agents most are good people, but some of the companys they work for Suck... they are good & bad just like everything else.

I have never hired anyone who wasn't an American born citizen. I am not in the chemical business, that is a small margin business. Can you order a 100,000 gallon pool delivered to your door?

Funny you should mention online because that is where I buy my insurance.

When you and Mark go to sleep at night, just ask yourself What do I add to the boating equation other than my commission?

I think there is room for on line insurance sales, direct telephone sales and services provided by a Broker. A Broker's service is value added in that (at least with a good one) unlimited information and discussion is possible, and multiple real time options are readily available. Further, their source relationships probably have a bearing as well. I would also think that a brokered arrangement is especially valuable for someone who really needs the help or is not able to run on line comparisons.

I was insured by AAA when I hit a submerged object with my Eliminator and went down (punched a hole in the bow). They were a real pain in the a$$ and it took several months and multiple letters / legal threats to get them to pay up.

I now have Progressive on a 96 35' Lightning and it is less than a $1,000 a year.

Regardless, I suspect that a large majority of insurance companies are difficult to deal with when it comes to a claim.

Just my .02 ....

I am going to quote boatme here,

Guys,
I think this thread is headed in the wrong direction. Once again, I was just stating that I've had GREAT dealings with Worldwide Marine Ins. Both Bob L. and John Y. have always been there to help answer my questions, and guide me thru the policy writing phase on my boats. Advising me on what level of coverage I should attain, and etc.
In service related fields, (Like insurance, auto sales, etc) I prefer to deal with a human, not a machine! And I like the dickering part when I comes to buying big ticket items.
We all need boat insurance, I'm just trying to let fellow OSOer's know that there are good boat insurance people out there!
Happy Halloween
Dean
