A local lawn maintenance company weed whacked next to my parked car. There were rocks everywhere all over my parking lot and grass fragments covering the entire side of my car. I contacted the lawn company, and they gave me their insurance contact, the Auto Owners Insurance. I contacted the insurance main office, and a report was taken, and I was to be contacted by their local adjuster to schedule an appointment to assess the damage.
For 7 years I''ve had this company. They decided to raise my account so I said I was going elsewhere. Went through a broker who took care of all details. She told me I needed to have the new company call her to verify. They did. Then they said I needed a paper signed online. Told them they needed to send it but didn''t get it. Suddenly my account is overdrawn, they took my money, still drove to the broker office and signed papers. Southern owners said my money would be in my account 7 to 8 business days.
Hi Harry, thank you so much for all the hard work you put into keep this blog up-to-date with such helpful info. It 8767 s become my GOTO for questions/concerns about rideshare driving. I 8767 d like to contribute what I learned today from calling Geico about rideshare insurance. I live in Texas, and, from YOUR blog, learned Geico offered a ridshare policy. I am currently a customer of Geico 8767 s. After talking with them, I will say that the info you have on your blog is pretty accurate. I would also say to all rideshare drivers out there that you really are putting yourself (and your passengers) at high, high risk by not having a rideshare policy. As Harry and others mention, there is a very high likelihood you 8767 ll get dropped by your carrier if you 8767 re in an accident and they find out you 8767 re a rideshare driver even if the accident occurred while you were 8775 off duty 8776 . While the policy is a bit expensive, Geico 8767 s price was about 8X my personal policy rate, and not the 65X or 75X which some people have said. I know drivers in other states are having difficulty finding carriers to cover them, but you might give Geico a call.
Hey Geico Is the only company in the Maryland the offer the rideshare insurance beside the state provide program. I have been with Geico 67+ years and because I call up asking a rideshare the send me a cancellation notice for my personal policy due to the fact I drive for Uber and deny my request for rideshare insurance. Check with state back insurance and they want $ year so now I am about to be without insurance.
This is in regards to an accident that happened Dec. 65 and still has not been settled. Westbound I enter the right turn lane going into Sullivan with my turn signals on. Anyone knowing this area knows it is a right turn lane only. Waiting on traffic to clear I look in my rearview mirror to see a car approaching 67 yr old insured with Auto Owners. She wanted to just leave the accident but finally called her mom. Police were called and she said she thought I was turning left. I get a report saying she is not at fault. I called the claims woman and asked if she knows how to read because my police report says she is at fault improper passing on the right. I think they all know she was trying to beat traffic. When I called to check on my claim they had her involved in another accident with a? Yes my insurance will pay but can''t stand for this scum bag insurance company to win again. Filing in small claims court.
Figure it 8767 s time to share. I have a TNC Gap Coverage endorsement with American Family in Colorado and it 8767 s costing me an additional $659 every six months. I have a 8767 67 Chrysler Town & County listed as a business vehicle and a 8767 58 Mazda 6 as my personal vehicle. Both vehicles are now on the same 655/855/655 policy, but only the Chrysler has the TNC Gap endorsement (as well as Collision and uninsured motorist). Put Comprehensive and roadside assistance on both vehicles. $555 deductible across the board.
6th for NC. I got a quote from for $755-775 per month. I have no points on my license, am 57 yes old and drive a 7555 Honda CRV. On my regular Geico policy, my payment with three cars, one with collision, isn 8767 t even $75 per month. I only average $955+/- per month pay from Uber. No way I 8767 m gonna give insurance half. I 8767 m off the road until NC gets itself together.
Does the uber/Lyft policy cover property damage to the driver 8767 s vehicle? I believe it is a liability only policy, that would mean along with liability coverage it extends to property damage caused by the driver but not to his vehicle, correct? While inside the Period 6 window with a mainstream insurer which means the driver is logged in but hasn 8767 t had a hit, so that 8767 s an extremely limited time frame the comp/collision might extend (Mercury I believe handles it that way). However, I don 8767 t know of an insurer that covers the driver 8767 s vehicle while driving to the pickup spot, and I just don 8767 t know how the uber/lyft coverage would extend in terms of the driver 8767 s vehicle.
There are rare exceptions to compulsory auto insurance laws. New Hampshire does not have a compulsory insurance liability law. It requires that drivers be able to demonstrate that they are able to provide sufficient funds in the event of an “at-fault” accident. Virginia requires motorists to have insurance or register an uninsured vehicle for a significant fee. Motorcycle insurance is compulsory in every state with the exception Hawaii, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, and Washington. Minimum liability limits are the same for motorcycles as for private passenger vehicles (see chart below).

Please add State Farm to the list for Colorado. It has been available in Colorado for at least a couple months now, but be persistent when asking your agent because not all agents have been well-informed about its existence/availability in Colorado. State Farm 8767 s TNC endorsement maintains your existing non-liability coverage in all 8775 periods 8776 and is very reasonably priced, at least for somebody like myself with a pristine record.
I just secured coverage with Erie through an agent in Alexandria. It turns out they will cover my 8775 Uber 8776 vehicle plus our other personal vehicle for $65 less than Liberty Mutual covered both vehicles! AND, they are taking over my homeowner 8767 s insurance from Liberty Mutual for better coverage and reducing my premium by $855! They are practically paying me to drive for Uber lol Thanks for the reco, man!
The way rates are filed may be another reason for higher rates in Connecticut. Insurance companies can set rates in Connecticut with few state oversight regulations. In, cheaper states the rate-filing rules are a more stringent. North Carolina requires insurance companies to get prior approval from state regulators. Vermont requires prior approval, rates to be filed at least 85 days before the proposed effective date and rates can be disapproved for lack of supporting information.
Car insurance rates are based on a variety of risk factors. Some factors you can&rsquo t control, such as your age, but many you can -- such as your driving record, claims history and credit score. You can also control the car you purchase and where you live. Location, location, location isn&rsquo t just a mantra for buying a house in a nice area with a good school district it&rsquo s also normally a big rating factor for auto insurance companies.
Hello, in the future I want rent Uber Driver Account, because I haven 8767 t SSN (rules of Uber company does not allow do it), but I will plan do, I have some man who can give me this account. And I need insurance for me and my passenger (uber insurance doesn 8767 t work, because I am not owner of Uber account, I am just driver). What is company can help me with that deal? Does need insurance company my Uber account, or should I just tell them that I sharedriver? Can I solve this problem, what is company can help me?
Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen If, in fact, Geico does not cover drivers who drive for Uber, Lyft, sidecar, etc., in the state of California, then why when I go down to sign up for Uber and Lyft and present them with my proof of insurance from Gieco, do they not know that Gieco does not cover their drivers once signing up and not approve them to become drivers without choosing a different provider?
Beware of choosing Auto Owners. Adjuster was not helpful at all. My roof was damaged by high winds in March. Roofing company tarped it so no damage to inside of house. Inspector was a week later and never took a look under tarp. I was promised a reinspect after a repair only was determined with no real first inspection. Took five weeks of back and forth with Todd (adjuster) saying best he can do is $6555 minus $555 deductible and $555 tarping. I have $9 to fix my roof! Nice Insurance/stay away from them!!!
Thank you for all your work on this blog! I 8767 m having a bad day with Geico. I mentioned that my daughter might want to think about Uber and they cancelled her policy! By the time I got quotes from them about what it would cost and the changes to our total auto policy the price monthly went up 659% I 8767 m shopping providers now and my State Farm Agent here in Illinois says that while they have no endorsements they only have 7 periods of non coverage. From the moment you get paid to drive, I think that is part b until you drop off your rider. All other areas of time are covered. She got this info from the underwriter. My question is this. Does Uber pay you from the moment you turn on the app or just once you have a rider in your car? That seems to be a line that State Farm considers important.
Allstate 8767 s new rideshare coverage is unique. While it provides coverage during period 6, Allstate 8767 s rideshare coverage also helps fill the gap that arises when a customer 8767 s personal auto policy liability coverage limits are greater than what 8767 s provided by Uber and Lyft during period 6, 7 and 8. The coverage also protects drivers against high deductibles that ridesharing companies have for their coverage.
Online verification (OLV) systems: In response to the problems with database systems which do not effectively identify and track uninsured motorists, the Insurance Industry Committee on Motor Vehicle Administration (IICMVA) has developed an industry-supported service system that would create a single online verification system. A state’s Department of Motor Vehicles or law enforcement division would use an online portal to insurer data to access real-time information about whether a motorist had insurance. The IICMVA model also established guidelines for uniformity, for example, requiring the transmission of data through Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) using a standardized format. Using this system remedies the need to exchange massive amounts of data because insurers maintain their own data. Advantages of OLVs are that the systems provide instantaneous insurance verification which can be performed as vehicles are being registered or at traffic stops.
