Garbage Aviva company

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Michael Apr 15, 2019
...Aviva should change their name to Garbage company. It's not only me, but many of my knowns had the worst experience. Note it whenever you need a claim you will get nothing. This company is the best in refusing claims. Never get this insurance...

Did you know that on average Ontario drivers with good driving records pay $1,805/year in auto insurance? Is your insurance rate higher? Get a free car insurance quote and start saving today.

Crooks ....buyer beware!!!

(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...Beware, this is how they boost bottom line by denying legitimate claims...the extreme delays in hope that policyholder loses interest or gets frustrated and walks away. Quick to sign up and consistent with pulling monthly premiums however if you ever have a claim they will delay and delay and treat you like a criminal. Six (6) months after filing a claim (hit by a driver who ran a red light) and we are no closer to a resolve and they have not provided a cent towards the $1800 put out for rental (did I mention they continued to take out full premium although there was no car on the road due to their adjuster writing off). They are known for their delay tactics (first thing lawyer told us when we mentioned who the provider was). Make sure you tell all your friends and family to stay clear of this provider for both auto and home insurance based on all the really BAD reviews for both services. Not investing in proper due diligence prior to signing on was my first mistake with these crooks!! They don't even deserve a 1 star should be -5!...

Stay away from Aviva

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by 2tonyandterry Mar 25, 2019
...Worst experience ever trying to deal with this company. Took 3 weeks to settle a claim when my wife got hit (not her fault). They refused to listen to our complaints and basically told us to like it or lump it. Insurance premiums were raised over 200$ a year for no reason at all as our driving records are squeaky clean. I'd prefer the charges of going without insurance than dealing with this company ever again. There is NO customer care whatsoever...

If you have a good driving record in AB, you should pay around $110/month (women - $105/month and men - $113/month). Do you overpay? Get an Alberta car insurance quote to start saving.

Worst insurance ever

(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...Have a claim open now, about a stolen car... They treat you as a criminal, it’s already been 6 months and it is still under investigation... The adjuster, investigator, and claims department are very rude and awful. I really like my broker, but as for Aviva insurance, it’s crap and not worth the extra money for full coverage if your car's used... Would not recommend to anyone... I wouldn’t even give one star if there was an option...

AVIVA, a horror story.

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Frank Mar 05, 2019
...For anyone that has auto insurance from Aviva Canada, I strongly suggest you find a new provider and for anyone who is contemplating using them for insurance to stay well clear of them. They are a horror story and only want your money and will find any excuse to avoid payouts. Here is my horror story. I have had them for over 10 years as my auto insurance provider and dutifully paid the premiums on time, every time, even when I heard others had cheaper premiums with other companies. Stupid me. On July 2018 I was involved in an auto collision. The other driver was at fault and was charged with careless driving by the police officer. It was my bad luck that he also had Aviva insurance. I reported the accident in same day. Aviva quickly wrote off the vehicle, even though the damage did not seem that extensive, and lowballed me on the payout. Less than half of what I paid 2 years prior. I argued that I had done some major repair work on it 6 months prior and should be at least partially compensated for that as well. According to Aviva that is apparently where I committed a sin. It seems we cannot question being ripped off by them. After 1 month of no definitive answers from them, in frustration, I cancelled my multiple auto and property policies with Aviva. They lost a total of $6,600 annual premiums because of their unprofessional approach. And really for a mere $12,000 claim. That appeared to have been my second mistake. I believe that they thought it was now payback for cancelling my policies. They took over 6 months to make a case that the work was not done as detailed in the receipts I provided. They put me through phone and an in-person interrogation (the Gestapo could not have done a better job). The end result was that they declined my claim including the car rental I used for 1 week after the accident. While it may be true that the auto shop cheated me on the work done in the bills, they should have simply declined the receipts and maintained their original offer, low as it was. Talk about adding salt to a wound. I have now retained a lawyer and proceeding with legal action against Aviva. Stay away from this scam of a company...

Bad driving record? Your insurance rates can be double the standard insurance rate. Let us help you get the better auto insurance rate without breaking the bank.

100% Unprofessional!

...Do yourself a big favour and avoid Aviva at all costs. Unacceptable customer service, insane wait times to speak to advisors. Some we have documented 78 minutes wait time to speak to an advisor. Insulting and actually disgusting how we were treated, even got hung up on a few times. Yes, they actually hung up and said: we are now closed, goodbye. THEN my wife's 2004 Chevy Tahoe was stolen and we were treated like criminals. They stated that the vehicle's ignition wasn't compromised the usual way that their appraiser is used to seeing. Not my problem. We were treated as suspects and were victimized worse by Aviva. They even had the nerve to ask for bank records, income tax files, even phone records couldn't believe it. We ended up settling for way below replacement value after 7 months of going back and forth. They make 1 offer and if you don't like it, too bad. We got $4100 to replace our Tahoe and had to spend $7500 to obtain a comparable vehicle. Really the worst experience with an insurance provider ever. They just make up the rules as they go. You have been warned folks, the reviews are true...

biggest joke of a company

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Joy Feb 15, 2019
...I was in an accident in December 2018. An accident that was NOT my fault. I was seriously injured and still have not returned to work and will be unable to return to my health care aide position for some time due to an arm injury leaving me unable to do any heavy lifting moving etc. Aviva has given me the biggest runaround to college disability and I still have not received any money to this day (February 14/19). Every time I contact them, I wait a week for a response where I get another excuse as to what I need to fix etc. I have asked questions to try to complete stuff once with no mistakes. I am then sent back for this or that or told they did not receive items even when I can clearly see the mail was delivered. Do not use this company because if you are ever in need of their support for an accident you did not cause, they will screw you and leave you to either work when you're unable or be completely screwed on your financial responsibilities...

Not happy with car insurance reviews for your insurance company? Get a quote across up to 20 Canadian car insurers and make sure that you do not pay too much.

So impressed.

...From start to finish my experience with Aviva was such a pleasure. I had an accident on January 24. Aviva contacted me the very next day to collect information, and connect me to my adjuster. The adjuster came out within 2 days of the accident to see the vehicle. Within 1 week of the accident, I was told the vehicle was a total write-off. 2 weeks after my accident, I have already received a check that completely replaced the brand new value of my totalled car plus some under the New Car Warranty program. Aviva was very courteous to me through all the interactions I had and were patient in answering all my questions. I actually had not realized that Aviva had such bad reviews when I had switched to them a year ago. I was a little panicked after the accident when I was looking for other peoples' experiences in dealing with Aviva so I could know what to expect. I am already in a brand new vehicle only 2 weeks post accident. I think that is an incredible service. Thank you, Aviva...
