Good until you file a claim

...I have been with state farm insurance for over three years now which was taken over by dejardins recently. Both home and auto insurance are from desjardins. The rate is good until I had a claim recently. I got rear ended and wasn’t at fault. Customer service was worst than you can think of. Andrew, the assigned adjuster, had only talked to me twice. The first one was when he introduced himself as my adjuster and the second time was when I already complaint for not getting any update about my case. Its gonna take you over 20mins every time to get through their line, and never had really given me the right information about how the process will move forward. You have to constantly call them to get an update. My entire experience with them was more stressful than the accident itself! I dont also feel like I am being represented properly. Worst customer service. I asked to talk to a manager so I could relay my feedback how bad they handled my claim - but NOBODY returned my call! What a shame! Clearly they don’t value their customers. I will never recommend desjardins to any of my friends, and all I can recall from this company is the worst experience I had with them...

8 year customer

by Yikes in Pickering May 29, 2019
...Terrible customer service and would not address my concerns when I called customer service numerous times. Manager encouraged me to look elsewhere for insurance so I took them up on their offer and ended up saving over 400$ per year. Had both autos and home insurance with them; saved on both. Learned later that they had not rated me for many of the discounts that I could have received including winter tires, low KM's driven and they inexplicably had me down as using one of the vehicles for business use- all wrong. Was paying higher than I should have for over 2 years- they could not have cared less. Terrible claims experience too, was willing to ignore that and stay with them, but changed my mind after this last experience...

NEVER EVER USE THIS COMPANY

...We had an accident on April 19, 2019, I can't get any answer from this company what so ever, they want us to take the rental back but they haven't even told us what our truck is worth, they are not returning any calls. We had been with State Farm for over 30 years then they sold to these people and even our agent can't get any info on our claim... We are now being sued by the cleanup company which is supposed to be paid by our insurance but that's not happening either and no one is returning any calls worst service EVER, it has been over a month and no one lets us know what is going on...

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.
 

1 star is too much "horrible"

...They are a complete joke, if you have a claim on your car watch out, they will push you to use their preferred garage that has a deal with them. Furthermore, they use a third party appraiser that's hired strictly to low ball you. The ultimate goal is profit at the expense of the customers. Please take my advice and do your homework, the shops in my area refuse to work with them. Ontario government should step-in CROOKS...

Worst Claim experience

...Unfortunately, I was involved in an accident on March 29 and I have approached this insurance company to follow the claim procedures. They take forever to come up with a report or disburse the check. It is more than a month now and I don't have a result yet. I advise you not to go with this company EVER...

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 company Ever

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Cameroking Mar 13, 2019
...I have auto insurance with them, my car was hit by another vehicle and damaged, I asked if I could get the insurance payout to my name as it was gonna be around 6500 and most of that was for labour cost, so I told them I wanted to fix the vehicle myself and they said: yes. Two other people told me yes - now they are running me around saying they can't when it's not even their money, it's the other guy's insurance that will be paying on top of that. They wanted to charge the 1000 deductible when it was not my fault. Bunch of losers, thinking they can tell me what to do with my money. And the reason I did not want to take it to the shop is they kept it an extra week before and did a crappy job at fixing it. They better resolve and give me my money or I'm suing them...

Ruining a Credit

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Kt Jan 31, 2019
...My credit is ruined! I was with this company for 5 years and last year I had 2 no fault accidents in the entire 5 years of being with them. It took 2 months to get my vehicle fixed, which was very inconvenient living out of the city. At the end of the year, I was told they are cancelling my insurance because of too many claims. Firstly, I was not at fault and secondly, now this is on my record making me look like a bad customer which has now ruined my credit line with other insurances being charged ridiculous prices...

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.
 

Worst company ever

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Giokras Jan 29, 2019
...They have ruined my life. Mentally and physically. I had an accident on Dec 29, 2018, still no settlement. The adjuster given to me has been the worst person I have ever dealt with in my life. She ignores my calls, ignores my voicemails, ignores my emails. I am now in contact with the CLO Complaints Liaison Officers. I was not at fault during the accident. They provided me with an offer, a ridiculous offer for my 2010 BMW. They made an odometer reading mistake - they added 50k km to my vehicles odometer and tried to pay me out based on additional 50k. They tried to scam me. Thank god I noticed that scam they tried to make towards me because if I didn’t, I would have lost a lot of money on my car!! ALWAYS CHECK YOUR DOCUMENTS BECAUSE THEY WILL TRY TO SCAM YOU IN ANY WAY THEY CAN. I am now waiting on a settlement amount based on my actual kms. Stay away from this company, stay away, save yourself the anger, the frustration and stress...

Worst Insurance Company ever!

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by 12345 Dec 25, 2018
...It's been 8 years that I was using this insurance company. Never in 8 years I got into an accident or any claim. In October 2018 I got into an accident at no fault. It was a very minor accident. It took 1 and a half month to fix my car. Finally got my car fixed. After a month I was travelling out of the country and wanted to put my car on storage. And I came to know that this company is about to cancel my policy because they wanted some documents signed from me. And I never received any documents due to Canada post strike. And I called them, I told them I never got any document from you yet, so finally they were like okay, you can download that document online. I was like ok, no problem, I will fill this and send over to you guys. After another week I got a letter saying that they cannot renew my policy because they never got the document. So I was speaking to an agent, I explained her I am going out of the country within 4 days. There is a Canada post strike going, you should be getting that soon. So that agent replied me saying, I am sorry "we are not Canada post, Canada post strike is not our problem". So I said ok, so am I responsible for Canada post strike? This company sucks, the agents have no respect towards a customer. They hang up on you when you demand to speak with a manager. This company is a useless piece of crap. Agents are extremely rude, no respect, no sense of responsibility towards the customers. I would suggest everybody never ever go with this company...

STAY AWAY STAY AWAY STAY AWAY

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by CharlesJJ Dec 21, 2018
...This insurance company now posing as “State Farm” is malicious and god awful. Stay away as far as possible. I had a horrible advisor for claims, who has a short temper and a criminal record; still working for Desjardins. He took over two months to look at my vehicle and I was left without a car for 8 months. He threatened to not pay and cover for ANYTHING (rental, parking, car) due to the fact that I was catching him in his lies and insurance antics. All until I spoke with his manager and stated that I was going to sue them. They will try to exclude things in accidents to save themselves every penny possible. THEY WILL PLAY DUMB AND MAKE THINGS CONFUSING. NEVER TAKE THE FIRST OFFER. Be persistent if you care about your vehicle. Make them pay for everything. Include things that weren’t even a part of the accident to make them pay. They deserve it. I’ve been paying insurance for 10 years and on my first accident they can barely cough up $3000. They ended up paying $36,000 in repair parts + rental car fees + workshop parking + labour because they were too stubborn to believe that my car (a 2016 AUDI A8) was a write-off; initially OFFERING ME A $3000 ESTIMATE. This insurance company DOES NOT follow the forgiveness accident policy that State Farm adopts; and if you are with State Farm, YOUR INSURANCE WILL INCREASE DRAMATICALLY. EVEN IF THE ACCIDENTS WERE NOT YOUR FAULT! STAY AWAY...
