Insurance Consultant Opinion
Liberty Mutual is currently providing some of the most incompetent, careless, and lack of good faith claims adjustment I have seen in 25 years.
Drafted My Account Without My Permission
This was the worst experience ever. I contacted a salesman that gave me a great rate on homeowners as well a auto. I went ahead and had him to write the policy. My policies were due to cancel with SF and start with LM on the end of the month. LM drafted my bank account without my approval 9 days prior to my policy going into effect. I contacted them.... and that's where it all went down hill from there. I didn't care who needed to be blamed, I just wanted the money placed back into my account. So began my game of cat and mouse with them. After burning approximately $20 of gas going to my bank to provide proof to them. I was told it would take 3-5 business days to have the funds placed back into my account. I contacted them today and was told a check would be sent out today. I am beyond upset at this time and have no idea what to do next. I guess I'll call tomorrow to see what they'll say tomorrow...
Extremely Happy Customer
Liberty Mutual certainly took care of us when one of our cars was totaled in an accident. I had just put a new engine in the vehicle and new tires all the way around. They told me to submit my receipts for the work done to them and refunded those costs as well as giving me a very fair settlement for the replacement cost of the vehicle. They were on top of my claim, it didn't matter how many different people I spoke to over the course of several days, each one knew every aspect of what had taken place and what needed to be done. I didn't have to retell the story once. They got the replacement check mailed to me very promptly. It was the best service I have ever received from any insurance company I've been with. I'll never leave Liberty Mutual! I see a lot of negative reviews on this forum, but I cannot say one negative thing about my experience with Liberty Mutual. They are the best!
Found Same Coverage For 75% Less!
We used to have Liberty Mutual for about 30 years. After refusing to pay for several claims we submitted, we shopped around and shockingly discovered we could get the same coverage for 75% less elsewhere. They should be investigated.
Given No Chance To Make Repairs, Just Cancelled On
I had Liberty Mutual for over 40 years. During that time I never entered a claim and never was late on a payment. One day I made some adjustments to my policy. They said that they had to come and check my home. The next week I received a letter canceling my policy. Why? For " MOLD ON THE ROOF ". I was given no chance to take care of the problem... Nothing. My policy was just canceled !
Poor To Non-Extistent Customer Service
I had multi-policy coverage (house, rental, and 2 cars) with Liberty Mutual. We had no claims, so one would think the company would want to retain my business. Within 1 year after my policies went into effect, my rates started to go up drastically. I couldn't even get a return call or explanation as to why this was occurring. Needless to say, I have cancelled my coverage with them. In my opinion, LM will give great rates and lots of deductions in the beginning and hope you don't notice the rapid and continuous increase in premiums!
Our home is condemned by the city due to snow load, a cover-able loss. Liberty Mutual's first offer was $20,000 for an $85,000 job. We have been out of our house for a year. They offer just got up to $74,000 after we filled a presidential complaint. They try to make that sound good, but they knew we would get that anyway. It's still not much of an offer... They refuse to extend our living expenses even though they swore they would. Their contractor knowing underbid by $20,000 and said we would have to pay the difference.
Sent To Collections For Not Renewing
If you are considering Liberty Mutual for any type of insurance, don't! These idiots sent me to a robo-call collections agency because I did not renew. Bad business deserves no business. Stay away!
I didn't Ask For This Nightmare
I was stopped at a red light when another driver insured by Liberty Mutual / Safeco hit the rear of my car. Now, it is months later and this mess is still not fixed. This is a simple claim. There were no injuries, just bent metal. This should have been finished up in a matter of days. Instead, they have fought and fought every bit of the way and we are still not over. I finally got escalated to their "Presidential Services Group," but they have also been unable to get this matter resolved for me. In fact, a man who works for that Presidential unit, who tells me that he reports directly to the company president, just told me that he would not help me and literally hung up on me. Obviously, this attitude runs all the way through the company from the ground-floor claims adjuster to the president himself. Remember, I did not ask for this. I was the injured party here. I was hit by their insured.
Peerless Insurance Low-Balled Us
We recently filed a claim for commercial property damage related to the heavy snow load on a flat roof last winter. PEERLESS INSURANCE, a division of LIBERTY MUTUAL, only agreed to pay less than 25% of the total loss. They were slow to respond, used every "catch phrase in the book" to deny coverage, even though the contractor who did the repairs is a maser builder and was willing to sign an affidavit stating that all repairs were related to storm damage and not deterioration in the building.
