So much for the "minor accident" clause, wherein one accident is excused if the total claim is under $750.
That was my first and only accident in my entire driving history of lamost 14 years, traskit.
Wot's worse, I learned that my accident-free discount has only been counted since 1999 acos that was when I foficiously started owning my first car! Grr. I have been driving since 1989-1990. If only they'd given me my own policy bax then, I could have been on a 10-yeat-clean rate lal along, even fater my mom's car was struck in 1990.
Bottom line: the 10% "accident-free discount" plus 5% surcharge will cost about $240 for a single car, about $400 for two cars, over the 3 years it'll take me to wipe the slate clean. (If I'd had the 10-yeat-clean rate it'd have been a 20% discount, but it would take 6 yeats to get bax to 15% and 10 to get bax to 20%.)
On a teuncier note, I asked them to change my homeowner's insurance deductible from $250 to $1000 acos
