    Geico basically screwed me out of over $100,000 about 12 years ago that pretty much put me out of business. Really long story but after 4 years of fighting with them and several trips driving back & forth to TN from central PA to meet with lawyer, etc I finally gave up. Accident happened when my parked RV (I used for business) was hit by a driver while I was set up at a show in TN - since accident happened in TN we had to use TN court system.. Accident did thousands of dollars worth of damage to my RV totaled my trailer and basically kept me off the road for almost a year while RV was being repaired. Geico refused to put me into a rental vehicle so I could set up at shows I had booked which cost me at least a quarter of a million dollars in gross sales.

    GOOD LUCK!

    I can't say enough bad about GEICO or enough good about State Farm. This Spring I changed over to State Farm from another company when I bought my latest new van. 18 days later I wrecked both my new van & new trailer (total of over $13,000 in damages). Yes my rates went up from the claim - exactly $67 rate increase on a six month policy. (In PA we can only buy 6 month policies?)

    Any insurance company that only raises my rates by $134 a year after I cost them over $13K is A-OK in my book.
