Thank God for a website like this one. It allows people to speak out!!!!
Farmer's Insurance Group has been our insurance provider for approximately,
well 10 years. However it has been in our family for well over 20 years. The
reason being, no one has ever had a house burn down until now.
My husband and I had a house fire on February 5th of this year. I will make

first purchased our policy in 1993. Otherwise, he would've given us more
coverage!!! We had added 20,000 dollars worth of improvements. He thought
that by the sound of things over the phone, that there was no need to up our
coverage.WRONG WRONG This is their job NOT OURS
Wish I had more time because I could sling a lot more mud.
Incidentally, if anyone has any knowledge of how we should progress with our
problems please E-mail me
