I had 3 cars on my auto insurance with Progressive. I sold one and now only have 2 cars. Same coverage before i dropped one car. Got my new renewal notice and it went up $40 total. That would be $80 per year.
I called and asked. Answer; u got a better rate with 3 cars but now only 2 so rate is higher. WTF ??????
BTW; No acidents or tickets in over 30 years.

So with 3 cars on my policy it is cheaper then 2 cars. How is this possible and I am the ONLY driver listed with both cars and then was only me on 3 cars.
How can they charge more for 2 cars then 3?
]
I feel I am getting ripped off. So I need to go buy another car just to pay $40 less TOTAL every 6 months ???????
WTF is going on and how can they do that (Charge me more for 2 cars rather the 3 cars total on my policy.???????
Gonna check with ther companies but damn hate to go thru all that when I changed to them 6 years ago because they were cheaper then. But slowly went up and up. No accidents or tickets.

I’m about to drop progressive after being with them for almost 10 years because of them jacking my rate.

Several friends have had them jack rates lately. I've had too many changes to know where I stand.

I just had my first claim besides glass breakage in 20 years..... And that was a lot of fun. I'll never take their preferred shop suggestion again.

Volume discounts are standard operating procedure for companies around the world. Surprised this is the first you're hearing about it.

Sign up for the bundled TV/phone/internet service and then try to drop one. Your price is going up.

Found that out 30 years ago. Always had a winter car because of it. Right now I have my Hotrods through Haggerty and the kids are gone so no multi car discount for me.

Look at it this way, we always see these same posts (Insurance, cable tv, etc) they have raised my rate the past 3 yrs......well obviously their tactic works, way too many people don't bother shopping around for other polices....myself included.

You can't assume that.

I check rates routinely, the prices are increasing egregiously past few years 10-25% ea year. Shit is hitting the fan. Stay or go, we are all eating a chunk of it.

This isn't the first rate complaint thread, it's one of many

stat farm said I lost my 2 vehicle discount so I called my agent and they said that is how it works but since the car I kept was the cheaper rate my insurance bill was cut in half. went from $114 a month to $48. so it does pay to call your local agent and have them re asses what you are paying.. They told me if I had a second car it would be $30 each car at the same rate for both or $64 with tax and fees. I do have 2 cars but the malibu is not road worthy so I am not gonna insure it for that yet.

Must be rough. I've been paying the same rate on my truck for 7 years.

I've been a member of USAA since 1966. Wouldn't change on a bet.
Same here. They have never let me down in 40 years. ;)

I'm sure I could get "cheaper" insurance but USAA recognizes the value of a long term customer and take care of you with no BS.

I just told Hagerty to shove it. I originally had one car with them at an $80k value. About 13 years ago I added another car at a $15k value. My rate went up even though I was getting a "multi-car discount", which I expected. Two months ago, I sold the second car. When I called to have it removed, they jacked my rate up another $75. I called and they said it was because I lost my "discount". Excuse me, WHAT???

So when I added a 2nd car, my rate went up. Now that I remove that car, my rate goes up again? Bullshit!! I told them to go fuck themselves and immediately removed my first car. They can kiss my ass, and I'll never deal with them again. Fuckin theives!
