A few years ago I was a customer of State Farm for a very short period. I had at the time lost my job and was looking to downsize some of my expenses. I compared rates at several places online and State Farm was the lowest I could find that still had decent coverage. So I called their customer services and got a solid quote and moved my coverage to under them. About three weeks after making my initial payment I got a letter in the mail from them telling me my monthly rate was going up. I immediately called customer services who explained my initial quote must have been a mistake! It took me several phone calls but I was finally able to get out from my policy and go back to my old insurance company. I will never do business with them again!
I have had home insurance from Allstate for several years now. I have always found their rates to be very competitive and their customer support to be second to none. I finally became a lifetime customer after I had a small kitchen grease fire in my home several years ago. All in all it did around six thousand dollars’ worth of damage. Allstate was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process and in a matter of weeks not months my home was fully repaired. If you are looking for a true industry leader with great policies and rates you do not need to look any further.
I have been a member of the Towpath Credit Union for five years. I have found their staff to be probably the friendliest of any financial institution I have ever had to deal with. They are based in Summit County Ohio and require you to be affiliated with the county by living, working, going to school or worshiping there or having an immediate family member who does. If you meet their requirements I would highly recommend them. They have great rates and other member benefits and are very willing to work with you on various loan and mortgage products. They are a delightful throwback to more friendly days in banking and credit unions!
I have had a small savings account at BFG Credit Union for a number of years. They only serve the Summit County area of Ohio and require you to either live, work, go to school in the county to be a member or live with a family member who has an account with them. Their customer service has always been great and I find their range of products and interest rates to be superb for a financial institution of their size. They offer online services and have a few locations. I highly recommend them though if you meet their requirements.
I had Progressive insurance and must say my experience was not always positive. I found their website to be fantastic and their rates to be very competitive. The issue I had was very long hold times when calling their customer service line. I also had an issue with not receiving a discount due to having both home and car insurance policies through them. It took four months for my issue to be resolved by their billing department and required me to call in each month. Coupled with the long hold times this finally drove me from being a continuing customer of theirs.
FirstMerit Bank is a great regional bank. They have offices in both the Akron and Chicago area. I began doing business with them because at that time I was traveling between Akron and Chicago. I found opening an account to be painless and all of the staff to be very friendly. While banking with them I was actually the victim of check fraud and the personnel out of both the Twinsburg and Corporate office were nothing but a pleasure to work with. They resolved my issue and I was refunded very quickly. I would highly recommend them to anyone in an area they serve.
I have been a Geico customer for three years now. I found the application process which I did online to be quick and painless. Immediately upon paying I was given access to a digital copy of my proof of insurance that I could print myself and a normal card was mailed very quickly. I find their pricing to be very fair and in the few years I have been with them my rate has actually gone down. Fortunately, I have only needed to deal with customer service once. Shortly after I signed up I hit a large pot hole that resulted in a flat tire. I had signed up for road side assistance and upon calling they had someone out there to assist me in less than fifteen minutes. I could not be happier!
I have been a member and had my car loan through them since 2008 and could not be happier. The application process for the loan was quick and simple. The staff was very friendly and answered all of the various questions I had about the terms and conditions. I have never had a single reason not to trust this institution and in the days of big banks I would highly recommend looking at them if their services are available in your area. The only drawback I can think of is the fact that they are limited to Youngstown area although they do have many locations in the areas they serve.
I signed up for a free checking account and savings account at Woodforest Bank about seven months ago. The main reasons are that there were many locations near me as well as the fact that they had Saturday and Sunday hours. I have nothing bad to say about their services. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. Their online banking and mobile apps always work as expected. The interest rate on the basic savings account is not that bad either for a brick and mortar bank. If you are looking for bank that is open on Saturdays and Sundays I would highly recommend them.
