After 20 years as a Farmers policyholder, I have terminated my relationship with them. Why? In the past 7 years, my rates have more than QUADRUPLED!! I have had no accidents, no tickets, and filed no claims during the past 20 years as a Farmers policyholder. The precipitous increase in rates is unwarranted, unjustified and unacceptable. A week before my annual premium was due, I backed into a concrete abutment in a parking garage, damaging my rear door. When I called my agent about filing a claim, he strongly suggested I did not do so unless the damage exceeded $2000. He stated my premiums would increase dramatically. I reminded him that I had paid Farmers over $30,000 in the past 20 years for policies on my home and autos and had never filed a claim. Why would my rates be increased with the filing of a single claim for less than a thousand dollars???

I purchased a policy from esurance.com with the exact same coverages (actually better in two categories) for about 2/5 or FORTY PERCENT of the premium Farmers billed me for this year.
