Deceptive quote process

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by JasonW Feb 22, 2019
...I signed up for a tenant policy. You can start obtaining a quote online but at a certain point, you are required to phone in and deal with an agent. The agent I dealt with, while very polite, did not voluntarily disclose some fairly major exclusions. These were only included in the policy details after signing up for it. Among the major exclusions, I assumed were covered were an earthquake, flooding, and water backup. I phoned back as soon as I received the policy details by mail and canceled (1 week after the policy was initiated). I was told there would be a charge almost equivalent to 1 month premium to cancel despite the fact I was only seeing the details of the policy for the first time and had had it for less than a week. When I asked for an email confirmation that the cancellation had gone through I was told they did not have the ability to do this despite the fact that they had sent me confirmation when I signed up for the policy. It is clearly a deliberate effort to be non-transparent to not disclose the details of the policy until after you've signed up already. I later found a quote that was a fraction of the price that covered the major exclusions in this policy. I should have done more research. Just glad I did not have to try to make a claim...

Households in Alberta pay, on average, approximately $60/month in homeowners’ insurance costs. We can help to push these costs even further down. Get a house insurance quote today to start saving today. Rates start at $20/month.
 

Try to cancel insurance

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...DON'T USE THEM !!! After the passing of our mother, we tried to cancel her home insurance after it had been sold. We had her home insured at the end of March to the tune of over $1100.00. She passed away in May and that is the month that her home changed ownership. After several calls, numerous emails and all legal papers for the ownership change and death certificates they still asked for more. It took several customer service people, all wanting different papers, to finally get to the point of getting a refund. The refund was $385.00. When asked how come so low a payout, we were told more paperwork was needed. WOW !!! It is the end of October and just got off the phone after asking where is the money. Perhaps in a couple of days, I will see it, so I have been told. I am mad beyond words !!!...

Pure ignorance

...So I highly recommend if you use TD insurance, to cancel and go with another company as soon as possible. After 6 months of phone calls and emails, they finally cancelled my insurance policy admitting to me how sorry they were that they dropped the ball on this. They sent me a bill for 20% of this year's policy (they auto renewed) because I was 2 weeks late informing them I’d switched companies. The letter also informed me I had 14 days to pay up or they would send me to collections! I called and was on hold for an hour and 38 minutes and was promptly told by a Steve that they were entitled by law to charge this ridiculous amount and if I didn’t like it, I could contact the government Regulators and take it up with them. Worst customer service I’ve ever had in my life and I intend to let everyone I can know just how completely terrible they are!...

Worst Insurance

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Jack Mar 10, 2017
...I had auto and home insurance for almost 15 years with TD, I had a project travel and left my one bank account unattended, so just 1 withdrawal failed, when I came back, they already canceled my policy, and I asked to resume, they said that will be new policy and charged 50% more! It's like a thief! I would change to Royal bank, even 2 times original money!!! Let alone Royal Bank is much much cheap then TD TMD...

Incorrect charge prices

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Zahid Z Mar 10, 2017
...Called to modify my existing home insurance policy. I was given a quote and a grace period to shop around for a better premium. Shopped around and found it was best to stick with TD. Called back to accept the new premium and was told that the previous quote was incorrect, and was given a much more expensive price, which was not the cheapest I found. Was told that the grace period was over and that the new premium prices were going into effect. Asked what the cancellation fee before the next payment would be, was given a number. Changed insurance providers and when I called back to cancel they tried to charge me over 3 times as much. Overall very frustrating to deal with and phone agents are either incompetent or are lying to you...
