    Default Is your insurance record not so pretty?

    So we've noticed a trend with one of our companies that may be appealing to the right type of client. If you've got a few blemishes on your record (two or three tickets, maybe an accident or two) some of the companies out there are quite punitive with their pricing.

    We have access to a good quality company that seems to be better than average with respect to a less than perfect record. Now, that's not to say you can have four tickets and two accidents and be the same price as the guy with a perfectly clean record, however in recent months we've taken people from $3500 a year with their current carriers to $2500. So if you've got a few indiscretions on your file, give us a shout and we'll see what we can do for you!

    Thanks,

    I get this error in Google Chrome after filling out your online form and pressing submit.

    "414. Thatís an error.

    The requested URL /... is too large to process. Thatís all we know."

    I'll get in contact with your company by phone at some point, just thought I'd let you know about this anyways.

    Thanks for the heads up Bandit. My company offers huge discounts for employees but because of an accident a year or 2 ago (minor fender bender) i would have been paying huge. So I'm stuck with my current provider.

    Thanks for the advice Bill. I think I met my first honest insurance guy. I emailed Bill for quote and he called me back telling me not to touch what I have with my existing company...standup guy and excellent (non) customer service Now if anyone ever asks me about insurance I am going to tell them about Touchstone.

    Just a heads up folks, this particular company that has better than average pricing is putting through a price increase effective June 1st. Anything on the books by May 31st keeps the lower price. The increase isn't huge and will still keep these guys below market average but cheaper is always better. Let us know if we can help.
