Didn't talk with any human either. Was done all online. They pulled up my driving record and everything during those 15 minutes. It was the damnest thing.

I just switched to Geico for my personal rigs because you posted this.

I just saved 570 dollars for 6 months. That's freaking huge. I'll look into commercial tomorrow.

Have a cigar on me! A cheap one, I'm a poor bastid. But 570 dollars richer I suppose. Sweet.

Oh, I was with Esurance. Paying 208 dollars a month for two rigs hardly worth 6 grand combined. Plus 12 a month renters insurance.

Been doing it for 19 years. When diesel fuel was 4.50 a gallon it was a little rough.

When I first got my Excursion diesel fuel was 0.89.9˘ per gallon. Paid for the diesel option in just over a year over what a V-10 gas cost would have been.
