I pay a ridiculous price for insurance due to a car accident that wasn’t my fault but the guy who hit me lied so they put the blame on me, for reversing into a car at a stop sign... it’s so upsetting! GEICO is so understanding and does EVERYTHING they can to get me discounts to make my insurance cheaper! They are patient and are willing to listen! They have given me the lowest quote! I pay $253 a month for my insurance now, every single other insurance company has quoted me at a minimum of $386 and won’t give me the time of day. I suggest GEICO to anyone! It doesn’t get better than them! I will forever be with GEICO! You’ve earned my trust, respect and business! Thank you GEICO!

Horrible experience! Even the supervisor gave me a crappy explanation for the premium increase even though I have an excellent driving record! The explanation: "My rate has increased because many NJ drivers are having accidents!"It didn't make any sense I'been a loyal customer for many years, now, I guess, I have to start shopping!
