...I have had a horrific experience with The Personal. I had a claim and my adjuster was very poor in explaining the process, but mostly guiding the process. I've never experienced such poor customer service. I went nearly a year without any representative providing me with a thorough update on my claim, despite phone calls and emails contacting them. My adjuster was unable to truly assist me. For example, my building had asbestos and she recommended that I take my contaminated belongings to the dump myself. In another instance, she kept calling me at the end of her workday, despite her being in the Atlantic time zone and me being in Mountain time zone so we were never able to connect as I was working and unable to consistently check my phone throughout the day. I asked her to call me in the morning instead so that we could connect better and more efficiently throughout the day. She made me feel guilty for her staying 15 minutes late due to me having a meeting at the end of my work date and being unavailable to take the call sooner despite me asking her to call earlier in the day. After the 13 months that I have been with them, I am cancelling my policy with them. In doing such, they are charging me a cancellation fee as well as increasing my last few months of payments. I do not recommend The Personal to anyone and I will be openly sharing my experience so that others do not have the same experience as me...

Claim closed w/out my knowledg

...I am so pissed and frustrated with this company. They freaking closed my claim without my approval, I was shocked. I called them and asked for an explanation but the only explanation they had was that's what it shows on the system. I said I want to talk with a person who is handling my claim. He called me and said: oh, since we didn't hear anything from you we thought you don't want to go through with the claim, therefore we closed the claim at the end of December. I was like, seriously, you guys close my claim during the holiday season, it was only month and a half since I made a claim. He asked for more information, which I emailed him after 2 weeks since I had to find all info he asked me to get, I waited for a week for him to respond but there was no response. I called him directly and left a message yet no call from him. A week later emailed him again, still no response... called again 2 more times but he never answers his phone. I called the claim department and the lady who answered said that in their system the person who is handling my claim asked for more info. I said I have already emailed him like 25 days ago and he has not yet responded me back yet, I wanted to ask him what is happening with my claim. Upon that she said: oh, here it says your claim is closed. I was freaking mad, but I calmly said: listen, I already said this before that I never closed my claim. Then she said she will put my claim on alert and put on the system to reopen the claim. Now I don't know when will I get a call from them, but one thing is for sure I am not going to stay with them...

...We had a cottage fire. Intact did everything they could to lowball us...delay...not answer emails or calls for months...cause traumatic stress...and engaged in bad faith. We found a lawyer and won. Do NOT speak with them on the phone or at one of their 'meetings'...get EVERYTHING in writing. I would give them 0 stars if I could. Their commercials are complete lies...

Are you a condo unit tenant? Remember that neither your condominium corporations' policy nor your landlord's insurance policy protects you as a tenant (3rd part liability, contents, etc.). If you do not have your own insurance policy, get your condominium insurance quote today.
