    With all the driver training we have, why dont insurance companies give us a better rate? Are there any sources thru the teamsters or OTR organizations that recognize us? Or is it like anything else where the good have to get punished for somebody elses dumb a**?

    In checking out car insurances, Liberty Mutual was one of the highest ones.

    They are probably trying to recoup the payouts on ups workman comp claims.

    Insurance companies arent here to take care of you. They are here to make a profit.

    Just went through shopping for car insurance, I thought the bill I got from my current carrier (State Farm) was on the high side. To my surprise, after web shopping, no one even came close to the rate I am currently paying. The quotes were anywhere from $200 - $1,00 higher. However, someone suggested going to Libery Mutual for a quote since we get a %10 discount with them. Bottom line, LM would have saved me about $40 a year from what I am currently paying, and a big plus is that they also offer payment through payroll deduction. However, since I have been with my local agent for over 20 years, and also have home and life insurance through them, I opted to stick with my local agent since I do like the personal and close by personal service they offer. There is a link through for Libery Mutual.

    I found a company called Wawanesa that has pretty good rates. I got a letter from AARP telling me how much they could save me in car insurance, but the rates were a couple hundred more that what I was paying. It pays to shop around.

    I have Liberty Mutual, and they tell me they base their rate on the number of miles one drives so mine is higher.....

    I just switched my auto and house to GMAC. I saved over 1400$ (on my 06 envoy, alone) moving from allstate and yes they do recognize and give professional driving discounts.
