Cheap Auto Insurance in Portland, OR 97219
You would be surprised how much insurance rates can vary zip code to zip code even if the zip codes are within the same metropolitan area. This can be for various reasons including higher or lower crime rates in a specific zip code area, accident statistics in that zip code, traffic density in different parts of the city, and even different weather conditions depending on what part of the metro area you are in. This can become even more interesting if you live on the border of a different zip code yet your are paying more for insurance than you would if you lived right across the street. While some people will use this to their advantage and give their insurance company a different address than their actual address to save some money it is not advisable as this may be seen as a form of fraud.

I have given this company many chances over the last 5 years to provide me with a value added experience, and sadly I can say, I have never felt like they have delivered. They are friendly enough, but when it comes down to time to got to bat for you.... good luck. I recently had the misfortune of needing a windshield replaced and my vehicle is only 2 years old. I called them to handle it, and they push you off to safeco directly. What do I need them for?.... It doesn't end there. Safeco takes the position not to use factory glass unless your vehicle is less than 2 years old. This apparently is somewhat flexible. I was not happy with the fact that I was denied factory quality parts, so I wanted my agent to call and try and persuade them. They said they would, however I am not sure they ever did or try very hard. They told me there was no way. I took my concern back to safeco, and called in the typical manor up the chain of command until they agreed to use factory parts. Again, what do I need an agent for?... If I wanted to do all the work for myself, I would have used an online outfit. About the same level of service. This company is on its third location since I first began as a policy holder. I have been given various oddball reasons over the years as to why policy was reviewed and given a rate increase, the latest being new crash test data that said my vehicles either cause too much damage or are too expensive to fix ( nissan frontier / ford explorer...not very exotic). I recently called around to get quotes and found that by switching I will save on average $60 a month, so they are not the cheapest by far, exactly the opposite... Don't waste your time, call someone else. I wish I had a forum like this to warn me before I took a chance on this company!
