Being \"raped\" by Insurance....
Well, I just got back from working on the road for two weeks, and my new insurance policy was waiting for me (it renews May 05), and I almost got sick.
I know that prices go up, but this is insane. A couple a years ago, I was paying $350 per year just for PL&PD for my truck, then it went up to $400, last year it was $506. Fine, I understand rates increase. Life's not always fair.
So a couple months ago, I added a '91 Honda Civic to my '90 truck policy, both with only PL&PD, and the cost of my new policy for both rigs, is going to be $1974 per year [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. No theft, no fire, no glass, no collision! Nothing, just the bare bones.
They tell me this is the cost of insuring two vehicles that are over 10 years old [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. I can't believe it, I'm just sick.
I called another place, and they quoted me at $2039, and I got an online quote at $2500.......am I having a nightmare here?
Looks like I'm going to have to take a day off work this week to go Insurance shopping. I don't know how these brokers sleep at night. They should be wearing masks.
