Shameful rates by L.M.
Well, after many years of loyalty to Liberty Mutual, I've finally pull the trigger and switched. I faced another substantial rate increase after enduring several years with increases here and there.
I spoke with one of their representatives on the phone while changing out a vehicle on my policy and the person acted like I offended them by asking for a better rate. Through subsequent questioning to see if I qualified for a lower rate, I was told I did not and that I would in fact be paying $1,200 more per year ($100/month increase).
I contacted the top rated company (4 letter acronym) and got a rate that was less than 1/2 the Liberty Mutual rate with the same coverage.
Do yourself a favor and shop around and drop them like a bad habit.
Terrible customer service
I took out a policy to insure my wedding and engagement band a few years ago and they were recently stolen. I put in my claim and my experience has been frustrating to say the least. They work with valuers who are rude (the valuer hung up on me twice during a conversation! - who does that??) and their claims team are almost impossible to get a hold of. You literally have to hunt them down. I would be wary of purchasing insurance from them, from my perspective and my experience THEY ARE DEFINITELY not on my side and neither do they actually care about me.
100% Rate Increase
I received an auto renewal from Liberty Mutual for the 2014/2015 year.
My insurance increased 100%.
Rates Triple in 1 Year, No Claims Made
My home premium went from $1,050 to $2,899 in 1 year on a home Libery Mutual has insured for nearly 30 years. I have not filed any claims for at least 10 years, have a fire hydrant on my propery with a comp roof. They also insure our cars. I have been a Liberty Mutual customer for 43 years. Not any longer.
Storm Damage Not Covered
We had water damage from a storm which caused warped hardwood floors and drywall damage. Adjuster came out and said we would have to wait 60 days to see if the floors become un-warped. Called after that and they are giving me a hard time on the phone that the company will not pay.
Won\'t Cover Medical Bills
My daughter was riding in the passenger seat with two friends. The driver was intoxicated, wrecked and critically and has forever disabled my daughter and they are claiming it is my daughters fault! They have denied any thing at all, she stills needs urgent medical attention that she cannot get! Had no choice but to file suit immediately, only way she can get the medical help needed to treat very serious and extensive injuries. It has been four months and I still haven\'t got the help my child needs due to this insurance company!
Liberty Mutual raised my insurance cost about 30% Never had an accident or claim. When calling to find out why, my insurance went up even more over the phone because of my moving to a different address. This company really sucks.
Very Poor Experience
If I could give lower than a 1 on the review, I would. Avoid this company at all costs. A young driver hit me and was insured by this company. It has been a nightmare to even communicate with them. They pulled what I see others saying here that they could not reach the insured. Lies! He called them from the scene. Then they said that could not get the police report. Lies! I scanned it over. Then they claimed I refused a taped statement. Lies! I gave it immediately. I've tried to contact them almost daily and only get voicemail. On day 16 somebody finally returned my phone calls. The collision shop also called them and their calls were ignored as well. Even though their driver was ticketed at the scene and clearly at fault, they are now stonewalling and trying to get me to take the blame. I have never worked with anyone who avoids phone calls like this. Their voicemail say they will return a call in 24 hours, but then they never do. I have been handed off to multiple people and no one calls back. Where are they hiding and who is supervising these people? In an email, one manager said she left me many voicemails. Lies! I keep records. I received ONE call. They are unprofessional and ridiculous. Do not give them your money. Go with a quality insurance company. I use Geico, and their customer service is exemplary. Even during this time, I get a daily call from Geico, even if it is just to check in. They should teach Peerless how to run a company.
Very Bad Experience
I recently had an auto claim with Liberty mutual. This is not my insurance - but the other party\'s. The accident happened day before Thanksgiving 2013. It is January 23rd - and I still do not have the claim settled. They are very unfriendly on the phone and never get back in a timely manner. You always reach their voicemail & as instructed if you press \'0\' it takes you back to the same voicemail. Extremely bad experience; never had such an experience with an auto claim.
Asked my agent to have my payments come out in the middle of the month she didn't so my account bounced. Called and
Asked her again secretary said she would take care of it. Nope wasn't done. Then the neighbor tree came down broke
Our electric line called my agent. She couldn't help. That was at the beginning of November
Tree still in our yard. Now with the ice storm more branches are coming in our yard.
Made the mistake calling her on Sunday she asked if I ever called other agents on there phone. She wasn't happy sorry things happen not between business hours. But this is life if you don't want to be busy DON'T be in insurance!
And I told her yes in fact two agents came out at 12:30 in the morning.
No the service is not the same. I must say very disappointed with liberty mutual I'm going to call my last insurance agent!
Yep you failed.
