If I could give them zero stars I would. I was in a wreck that was not my fault and had a very hard time communicating with this company. That should've been my first red flag. I drive a Chevy 1500 Silverado and needed a like kind rental car for my business to operate. I got a Tahoe as a rental car so I could continue working then when it came time to get a check they did not even give me half for the rental car. What they never mentioned (because they were impossible to get ahold of) was that you only get $29 a day for a vehicle. I WAS NEVER TOLD THIS. So now I am out over $1000 and they have taken zero responsibility. If you get in a wreck and they have this insurance company try like HELL to settle without getting insurance involved because you will hate them as much as I did. TRASH company. TRASH employees. TRASH communication. and TRASH management. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE.

They suck majorly. I've paid all this money every month, then something finally happens. These people have had my car for the longest, and they haven't called me to update me on anything. They are moving extremely slow with my process. Ive been in this rental for 2 weeks now and have had to pay 599.00 for the two weeks. They will only reimburse me up to 420.00 of that. Now I have to keep the rental longer and pay more because they took their sweet time with my claim, and still don't have any information to give me about my car that they still have in their possession. People pay their money to feel safe and secure, and know they will be taken care of. Even their managememt promised to call me back to update me and still didn't. I never got one call from my claims officer ever. I had to call them because they xan take my money but dont know how to contact you and update you on tue status of your property. I feel scammed. I feel like Ive been jipped out if everything. I would not recomment these people. I would give them 0 stars if that was an option. I payed full coverage service to barely receive service at all. I want to say so much more, but its beneath me. It's been 30 days now and still no answer from them. I cant wait to get my property back. 1st chicago will not get another dime from me. Im switching to Progressive. They might cist more, but they take better care of their people, and actually care. I can't believe I stayed with this company for as ling as I did.
