Yes, they often do. Remember what I told you about low prices. Ask your local auto body places what they think of State Farm. Prices are low because they are tough to get money out of for a claim, at least around here. Nothing for nothing.

I'm aware of this particular issue, because one place I deal with will not take a repair job that is being paid by State Farm.

yeah. i have heard that.

however, i only get liability. havinng seen so many people pay big money and then, when their bikes were stolen or totalled, have to add considerable personal money just to replace the vehicle that was supposedly being insured ( because that's how insurance works ), i am not willing to throw my money into the bonfire of full coverage.

if i am paying money to have my items insured, once something happens, i feel that insurance should replace those items.

it's the same if you get hit and have to rely on aother person's liability. you did nothing to cause your vehicle, or other property, to be lost to you. if insurance was not involved, the law would demand that the responsible party(s) make right what they messed up. but, insurance gets away, legally, with giving you a replacement value well below what it would cost you to get the same model and year vehicle, in similar condition.

since i only get liability ( it's a legal requirement ), i am not depending on my insurer to take care of my things, should i be at fault. and, since the law is fine for insurance companies to only partially compensate a person for their losses, at another's hand, i am at full legal compliance whomever i choose for liability.

Re: insurance/survey

Maybe its different where you are. While you aren't getting collision, typically liability also has comprehensive coverage. Meaning, things like theft or fire or hitting a dear. You may very well still have your car repaired. Nevertheless, one might assume the same scrutiny applies to a liability claim, although, I've not heard of examples.

You are sort of in a logic loop. You're upset that insurance companies don't just pay, but you intentionally buy from the ones that don't just pay (ie the cheapest rates).

Re: insurance/survey

To Captain Jack about Boatus ins changing their mind about me hauling out for survey and having a required survey. I just told them I was going to shop around because I did not want to pay more for the survey and haul-out than the insurance. (it took boatus @week to change their mind). 1982 sailboat. Jack, good job explaining and defending your life !

you are absolutely right. i do. but i didn't always. i spent half of my adult life with reputable companies, and the well to do customers at the bike shop weren't using cut rate insurance, either. i on;ly changed after getting burned a few times.

i believe it is different here. liability, in my state, covers damages to the other people's property and personal injury. as far as i know, liability, here, doesn't cover more than that nless you upgrade your policy.

but, you do make a good point: that's car and motorcycle liability. i am not really completely sure what boat liability covers, outside of damages to other people's property and personal injury. that is something i will have to look over, carefully, when i sign up.

i may very well have to try them again. they were pretty adamant, though, because of the age of my boat. 1971. that's a bit older than yours. they may not budge in my case. their price and reputation is really good. if not, that's cool. i will just follow the course i already plotted.
