I have SF, called Geico went through the whole process based on the fact the first phone call eluded to me saving money by switching and how much it COULD be.

After everything said and done, SF was cheaper by 20%.

Have had several claims through SF and there was never a question, they took care of everything.

We are thinking about doing the same thing, and we are concerned that the same thing is going to happen, they give 1 quote over the phone, but then wehn you go sign all the paper work, it's a different $$ #

I have had SF. I had them for 6 years. Every year it kept going up. We called and they always gave us a lame excuse. We neve had a claim until year 6. Then they dropped us... LOL

Never tried Geico. Each time we called there prices were the highest of them all.

My brother-in-law also owns a body shop and has SF and swears by them and their service. I've had them for over 30 years, which may account for a deeply discounted price for loyalty (don't know), also they have my house and all my vehicles. When I did some online comparison shopping awhile back no one else could touch their price. Last claim was when we had an ice storm here at LOTO and had a carport that went down with some damage to a trailer. Settlement was quick and painless. I'll never go anywhere else!!!

state farm has been great for us! We had some storm damage on our house and they did not cut any corners having even the last small bit of damage fixed. Our neighbors had allstate and they had even more visible damage than us, and allsate said their house was fine!!!!!!!

Also, if you keep all of your policies with state farm with for a long period of time, they give a pretty good discount.

I've been with SF ever since I started driving and have never had an issue. I recently looked around just to make sure my rates were in line and noone could come close. The boat is very cheap too, plus like mentioned earlier you can do agreed value.
