Get lost Flo

Never again will I use progressive. You can’t hardly talk to anyone with any knowledge and if you try to sign up with the company on the phone they charge you extra money because you used a person.

Random charge after I already paid premium in full

They asked for a garaging address confirmation out of the blue not long after I paid for the 12-month premium. If I don't, they will charge me $600 extra premium as a new rate, which is ridiculous. Why they didnt ask for it in the first place when they gave me the initial estimate to make a clean, one time payment is beyond me, probably want give me some hard time so they can get lucky with the extra money by trapping you since you already paid ?...

Why they didnt ask for it in the first place when they gave me the initial estimate to make a clean, one time payment is beyond me, probably want give me some hard time so they can get lucky with the extra money by trapping you since you already paid ? After I upload the proofs, it takes them almost a week to review but they are giving you so little time between the confirmation request and the due date for the extra premium. They shove the new charge in your face so quickly and actively with emails and multiple mails but when they reject your proofs, you are only notified by mail, which I am under the impression that they intentionally to make things slow for you to hard to get out of the extra charge. They are very nit picking about the proofs you provided also. When you called them, they say only certain information is needed but after they are sent, they will say they can't accept it, making the whole process such a hassle. Do not use them, as they will throw extra charges at you for no reason, or a made up reason in my case, since they already trapped you with the insurance that you already paid for. Either pay for the random bills or no insurance coverage for you

Worst insurance company and customer service.

My 22 year old son left our family policy and started his own. Progressive mistakenly charged him $900 because they mistakenly put my husband and my insurance with his. They charged him $900.00 without notifying him. They told him it would take two weeks to make a refund because he signed an agreement that they could charge more without asking. I entered a three way call but could not get anywhere with customer service. Now have to deal with ...

Roadside assistance- waste of money

The insurance is good but the roadside assistance is crap! Called in for a tow at 7pm on Sunday evening. Got a text saying 90 minutes. When that was up, progressive called and said they can't reach the tow company so they will find another company. Got another text message, 60 minutes. At midnight, I called them again to see what was up. They said the ETA was still 40 minutes. I gave instructions where to drop it at my house, got some rea...

At midnight, I called them again to see what was up. They said the ETA was still 40 minutes. I gave instructions where to drop it at my house, got some reassurance it would be there in the morning and went to bed. I woke at 5AM, still no truck!!!!! I call again and they tell me ETA is 4 hours! In addition to my monthly fee, I paid for this tow!! I am livid and say I want a refund. They just keep telling me they are sorry for the inconvenience and the truck will be the in 4 hours until I'm so [REDACTED WORD] I hang up! Don't waste your money, find your own tow company and save yourself the monthly fee and over 12 hours of stress and waiting!!!

$50 cancellation fee!?!?

I have had several Progressive insurance policies in the past and I had auto coverage on two of my cars recently. I moved out of state and went to change the policy to my new state and saw that the new rate just wasn't competitive, so I switched to AllState. I got my final bill from Progressive and they added a $50 cancellation fee. I called them to tell them I wanted to pay the remaining balance, but I refused to pay a cancellation fee of $50...
I have had several Progressive insurance policies in the past and I had auto coverage on two of my cars recently. I moved out of state and went to change the policy to my new state and saw that the new rate just wasn't competitive, so I switched to AllState. I got my final bill from Progressive and they added a $50 cancellation fee. I called them to tell them I wanted to pay the remaining balance, but I refused to pay a cancellation fee of $50. They told me that was mandated by the state (which is a total lie). I had insurance with another company and cancelled it mid term and was never charged a $50 fee previously. They told me they would not remove the fee so that I could pay the remaining balance that I actually owed and if I did not pay the cancellation fee they were going to send it to collections. Be aware of this before ever considering this company for anything. They have lost a customer for life over $50 and will be bad mouthed on every platform available to me for as long as I live.
