A Matter of Trust
written on August 12, 2009 by Kenyon Mau
Employee Development

I was driving around town the other day when a song came on the radio, that I had not heard in quite some time so I listened to it. The title (which is what I named this article) stuck with me after it faded into the next song.

I Dont Want Your Accident Forgiveness
written on August 04, 2009 by Scott Brown
Customer Service

 

A new marketing campaign by a major insurance carrier tauts that they will "forgive" you for an accident by not raising your rates with their new "Accident Forgiveness" policy.  They say they're doing this because most insurance companies will raise your rates after you have an accident.  This is true - and it does stink.  But the whole idea of them "forgiving" me kind of rubs me the wrong way.  Maybe - quite possibly - it's just me.
