2 years ago, my home was broken into while I was home, several doors kicked. Progressive said the damage was pre-existing. Tell that to 911 while I was on the phone reporting it while it was happening. This February 2022 warmer than normal temperatures, snow melting, heavy rain over night floods all my pool equipment: pump, furnace, 2 fuse boxes, damages the patio, sidewalk, pool cover, fences, everything. I pay extra to have the pool covered. Flood damage is not water damage, not covered. Progressive/Homelite is a complete scam.

Original review: Jan. 25, 2022

I was paying a premium of $1350 a year and chose to switch to Progressive for a lower rate with similar coverage but a higher deductible. First year my premium was less than $900 - the 2nd year it went up to $1350 (not notice or anything) but still had the higher deductible. I was not happy about it but stayed with progressive. The 3rd year I received an email that per progressive I was "not supposed to receive". It was what was being billed for my premium - and it went up to $2500. I immediately called Progressive and was told that they were going to call me before billing my mortgage company and discuss the increase before billing. They did not call me and they did bill my mortgage company and this was completely unacceptable to me. This is more than a 150% increase in my bill in 3 years!

I had one claim during this time for a leak in my water heater that caused extensive damage only to find out that my insurance did not even cover it (my previous insurance with the lower deductible did cover this by the way) but this was not why my premium went up - per Progressive the company they were using raised their rates and this was why the increase. So after hours on the phone with my bank and with Progressive they found another company for me with lower rate - Homesite insurance (the reviews for them are horrible!). So they told me - after a lot of calls and denial that they already billed my mortgage company- that they would switch my ins. reimburse me the amount back that they charged, I would have to receive the check and send it back to my bank and have them put it back into escrow. Then I would call Progressive back and cancel the $2500 insurance and start using the $900 insurance.

Per the Progressive customer service "it's real easy to fix!" But it was not - I spent HOURS making phone calls and getting this taken care of. Also my bank charged me fees for this... So I kept everything in writing and wrote customer service at progressive telling them what my fees for this was and asking that they repay me the amount ($67). I sent an email 12/15/21 and was told they would respond in 5-7 business days, after 3 weeks I emailed them again only to get the same response.

Then yesterday 1/24 I received a phone call from the new insurance company - Homesite. They were told by Progressive that I needed a reimbursement for my insurance??!! This had nothing to do with Homesite! It was Progressive that tried to sneak in a %150 rate increase - but I caught them! Be very careful of Progressive - there should NEVER EVER be any reason to do this to a customer. There will NEVER be an excuse for this kind of increase - especially with no notice! As of today - there has not been an answer to my email and the 5-7 business days have expired.

    Don’t bother with these clowns. They won’t cover you after finding reasons to NOT cover an issue, then will drop you like a hot rock if you don’t agree to a bunch of unreasonable terms. Not worth your time... plenty of other companies will give you way better coverage and actually cover you... not these snake oil salesmen. Sham company. Zero stars if that was possible.

    Avoid this insurance at all cost! We were hit with the worst winter storm in 100 years and were completely out of power for three weeks. Much of the power system for our business was destroyed. The creepy underwriter for this policy (midland underwriters) denied a relatively small claim and refused to help us. Don’t waste your money! Get some other company!

    After being accepted by Progressive for homeowners policy they they called a month later and said they drove by our house to do an inspection and wanted documentation on the age of roof and questioned the my front door that is in process of upgraded replacement. Even tho I, after the fact, eventually found their fine print that they do exterior inspections they never mentioned it in any phone communications at new policy signing.

    I returned their call about their Vm and explained to the very unhelpful associate that took my call that I also am doing other remodel work in and out of the house and that if they insist on driving by my home every 6 months to see what I'm up to I can take my business elsewhere. The lady on the phone had zero response which tells me that's what they do. I will move all my policies from Progressive Ins to a less far reaching Nanny Ins company. And BTW I have never had an insurance claim and my driving record is clean. DECEPTIVE COMMUNICATION.

    Spent almost 20 Minutes filling out a online request for home Insurance. Last step in the process was to call a phone number to get the quote. When I called the number, I was told that my completely remodeled home inside and out did not qualify because it was built in 1900. I called a friend of mine in a town that has 100's of homes built in 1900 and the 1800's and he informed me that he dropped Progressive because of their high rates and not following through on his insurance claim with them.

    They were extremely helpful. They gave me prices of competitors, even ones that were lower prices! The gentleman who helped me was extremely friendly. He told me what all my options were. Once I found a policy I wanted to pay for a year upfront and he walked me through the process and carefully explained how to fill out the online forms. I definitely recommend them!!!

    Company has been fighting me for 2 years over a homeowner's policy where the mover lost thousands and thousands of dollars of antiques. They are deceitful and lie through their teeth. I will now have to hire an attorney to fight them to re cooperate the loss, when it states specifically in the policy this is covered.

    We have auto insurance through Progressive and they keep advertising bundle home and auto so I thought I'd try it. We have four Great Danes, 2 of which are show dogs and 1 was number 33 in the country in 2019. When Progressive asked if I had dogs, I informed them I had Great Danes. Evidently Great Danes are on their can not insure list. I guess I'll be looking for a new automobile insurance also now!

    I have home insurance from Progressive. Insurance declaration page has NO contact information at all. Only name of the agent. I googled and found general number for Progressive home insurance. Progressive representative finally gave me phone number for my agent. But I was surprised that the number was not in service. Thus, I had to call general number back. Total I spent more than 2 hours to submit copy of alarm certificate. I could do it for 5 min if information would be on my page. It's ridiculous. Why do not provide all contact info on declaration page and prevent customers from losing time on the phone????
