I have a good friend in MD whose very expensive motorhome (less than 1 year old) burned to the chassis. He had a "replace-in-kind" clause in his Progressive policy and they ended up giving him a 1 year newer model with more extras then he had on his old one. They even paid to fly him to FL to take delivery from his original dealer. He said they were great to deal with and changed his bike and cars to Progressive.Glenn said:. Any one know how progressive's clame service is ?

Progressive is also sometimes sold by local independent insurance agencies, but they can add "agency fees" and sometimes their own rules. One local agent gruffly told me that he wouldn't insure my bikes unless I gave him my car insurance too. I avoided all that BS by dealing with the company directly.
This is one independent agent that has represented Progressive since the early 60's and would love to write just your Burgman and does need your auto's. I make a 10% commission and yes you can save that if you go direct, but I am hear to answer your questions, walk you through a claim or call it in for you, make any changes you might have with your policy or just have a cup of coffee. Unfortunately I only am licensed in Iowa and not Nebraska. By the way Progressive has excellent claims service.
