Still trying to get rental

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Viktor Jul 02, 2019
...I Have a 2019 Lexus Nx300 f2 sport which was smoking in the garage for about 5 hours when my garage caught on fire... Ontario province... They didn't give me the rental same day, it was on 22nd of June, and on Monday when I reached their office because they were closed on weekends, the adjuster answer kinda surprised me when I said that I need a rental, she told me that I have 2 cars... Unprofessional at all... I pay insurance for both... After they ended up giving me rental on Monday when I called after hours and I returned it on Wednesday because we were going on vacation... Now I am trying to get a rental from 10 am and my adjuster seems to be ignoring me... Wish I can put - 100stars... Will switch my cars insurance after solving claim for sure... Been calling about 20 different numbers. Don't know what to do. My time worth more... Good thing my wife is a lawyer... Recording every call now...

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.
 

SGI - Westland Insurance

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Metaller99 Apr 05, 2019
...Got an online quote from SGI. Phoned Westland Insurance in Calgary who told me SGI did not offer monthly payment plan. Phoned SGI and they said yes, they do and that I should have been given the plan. Stay far far away from Westland Insurance brokers, and stay even further away from SGI Canada. I was insured through a broker with SGI a few years back and blew the engine in my truck leaving me with my other vehicle to drive. I faxed them and cancelled my insurance on the truck because I couldn't drive it. Westland refused to rebate me for 9 months of insurance for the cancellation. I got a hold of SGI and was finally paid my rebate after 10 months from the time of the cancellation. SGI is the worst insurance company I have ever dealt with. Please for your sake stay away from them...

Worst company ever

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by ginat Oct 19, 2018
...Worst company I ever dealt with in my life. I had 3 vehicles insured. In July, I asked to have one removed. August came, still not removed, September came, still not removed. Broker started ignoring my emails. Had to finally call a manager to get it taken care of. Got an email stating my new payment would be $235, coming out of my acc on Oct 5th, then a letter in the mail a week later saying $144 would come out Oct 21st. Assuming they refunded me for their mistake of not removing the vehicle since July. Payment tried to come out Oct 5th from an account I no longer use, so it went back NSF. Had no clue til following week, I got a cancellation letter. Called and lost my temper on them, asked for a manager. Conveniently, they're all in a meeting!!! Not willing to own up to their own mistakes, so I ended up having to pay off my policy in full and they will no longer do monthly payment at all because they screwed up sending me wrong information. None of this would have happened if they would have removed the vehicle in July like they were supposed to. Bunch of crooks. Needless to say, once my policy is done in 2 months, I'll be done with their crap!!!...

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.
 

Rates increase 4x in 4 weeks

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Patrick Jun 26, 2018
...Received an auto insurance quote for just over $200 a month and was accepted by both parties. Received the temporary permit through email. After 5 days, the rates went to over $800 a month. SGI stated it had an MTO (Ministry Transport Ontario) report of an accident. SGI would not provide a copy of the MTO report after multiple requests, so we went to the police and found out that there was no MTO report. We then tried to cancel the policy, which SGI denied, as SGI then said that there was a conflict with the non-existent report and their policies, so SGI cancelled the policy. This all took place within 4 weeks. SGI still continued to take the $800 a month, on top of the original $200 initial for the policy, yes, that was over $1000 for 4 weeks of insurance! We have yet to receive anything in the mail about the policy. SGI now refuse to contact us, and no longer answer any text, emails or phone calls...

Unprofessional / Disorganized

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Goldie Dec 09, 2017
...No returned calls, fluctuating premiums and a double bank withdrawal. My policy was switched to SGI by their parent company and I was informed that my rates would be lower due to my clean driving record. I was initially told, after calling to inquire what my premium was, that they were backlogged due to changes within their office and waited well over a month for any paperwork from them. My broker advised that I needed to ensure 2.5 payments be available in my account 'just in case'. These payments he advised were only ballpark amounts as SGI hadn't processed my policy yet. 2 months after supposedly being insured by them, I finally received my policy in the mail - 2 different versions and premiums that were mailed out by them on the same day. In the 3rd month, they withdrew 3 payments and my rate increased for the 2nd time in 3 months. I called to cancel my policy today and will monitor my bank account for theft of future premiums...
