Which is a better auto insurance company Geico or Progressive?

I am currently with farmers and looking to get away from them because they keep raising my insurance too much.

    I don't know. My mother used State Farm. She said their insurance was very good.

    In South Carolina Geico is the cheapest.  I recommend shopping around every 3-5 years.

    Neither.  Ins co's who advertise cheap rates often renew with rates which arenlt so cheap.     I had insurance with one, ( cheap rates) and after a year my renewal went up 19%. No accidents or violations,everything remained the same.    I talked to another agent; he said I fell for a "teaser rate"  a low rate to get you to buy their coverage, then a year later, ZAP!  

     Needless to say, he found me a better deal.and my premium has been stable the past 4 years.

      I feel I am paying for insurance, not TV commercials

    Price is not everything.  You get what you pay for.   If you get good service with the insurance agent and the company pays their claims fair and quick that is more important than saving a few dollars.

    I think Progressive is better than GEICO but it really depends on their policies about accidents and what can cause them to raise your rates. After 30 years with GEICO, I had one small fender-bender and my rate got raised nearly 3 times what I had been paying. I switched.  Progressive's rates have gone DOWN every year.

    They are all about the same. What saves you money is what other policies you have with them like homeowners, boat, GL, etc

    Neither one is any good.  Keep with good ones and forget the cheap ones.  Remember, cheap ones have no good customer service ratings and are terrible at fixing anything.

    Which is better, cannot be answered.  They are both good or they wouldn't be in business.

    Get as many quotes from as many companies as you can bear, then choose the best quote for *YOU* and your particular situation.

    All insurance companies raise rates.  Find out why your rates are going up.  Maybe it is something you have done.

    I have been with both.  First with GEICO because their initial rate was the lowest of all I called.  BUT you expect a rate increase at every renewal, but their's was insane:  15% - 21% - even more.

    So I switched to Progressive:  sure rates go up, but not nearly as much.
