WORST INSURANCE COMPANY

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by B singh Sep 10, 2019
...WORST INSURANCE COMPANY. Told me that my insurance will be cancelled on Aug 22. Before cancelling I talk to an agent and clear everything. Amount due, cancellation date so I can buy a new one but again on Sep 9 they deduct 350 dollars. My original insurance was 296.acc to them and they charge $ 56 2 days. Customer service - they don’t know how to talk, behave rudely, and talk non-sense...

Worst insurance company

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Crystal Sep 08, 2019
...I have had ongoing problems with Desjardins since State Farm was bought out by them. From switching locations for my service, to billing me without informing me of withdrawal from my account, to sending me notification and then not withdrawing the amount and sending me phone calls & letters suggesting that I was not submitting payments properly, then cancelling my insurance for no reason ... Well, the reason stated was ‘non-complaisance with payment conditions’ when they were the ones messing up my payment withdrawals, not to mention I had paid the full year in advance and they were cancelling my insurance with 6 months remaining and already paid for. Not professional, scammers. Do not wish the stress I’ve had with this company on anyone...

Desjardins is the worst

 
(1.5 out of 5 stars)
by kaimcv Aug 19, 2019
...I had two policies with them. Told me there were no cancellation fees. Increased my premiums MASSIVELY so I went shopping elsewhere. Then had to shell out almost $700 for cancelling my policy. Asked the person on the phone for the math of how they calculated the fee and the response was "the computer just spits out a number" so organized! Never ever going back to this place...

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.
 

Increase in premium

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Nathalie Jul 10, 2019
...I have been with Desjardins for over 10 years, and my rates have been dropping steadily when keeping the same car. However, this year when my insurance was up for renewal, my rate went up by a whole 34% for the year. I contacted customer service, and they did not know what to tell me other than the area where I live rating was the cause. I have had zero claims or tickets, but yet they increased my premium by such a large amount instead of dropping! I have now cancelled all my policies from this greedy company...

Cancellation

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Monica Jul 10, 2019
...I haven't been insured with this company for 2 months yet. No email sent to me about my cancellation. Was only concerned for money amount owed. No explanation of why the huge amount is being taken out. Bad customer service. Zero-rating given...

8 year customer

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
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...

Cancelled my insurance

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Pat May 11, 2019
...They cancelled my insurance because of a communication error about the transfer of my plates from Ontario to Quebec. I forwarded them the proof that it was done, and they said: "we didn't get it, there are other forms of communication blah blah blah...." The lady told me to e-mail the proof! Anyway, the customer service is ridiculous, and now I will likely have to pay higher premiums somewhere else because of them. Go somewhere else!!!...

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.
 

Safety and 65% increase!

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Raja J Apr 09, 2019
...My insurance was cancelled while I was travelling. I received no email or text of this happening. I only found out after coming home and reading my mail. Had I not seen my mail prior to driving I could have hit someone or killed someone with no insurance! When I tried to reinstate my insurance they raised it 65%! They don't care they are putting public safety at risk or see any validity that they are part of the problem by not updating their system...

Really deceptive agents

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Maximus Feb 15, 2019
...They gave me a quote for $1900 and as soon as I signed, the quote was raised to $2880. And then the crazy part was when they told me they don’t remember giving me the quote. And then they got me with a $215 cancellation fee. I don’t recommend this company to anybody out there...

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...

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...
