We’re at your service for repairs, too

Posted by Brittany Ritchey on 1/14/2013 at 8:00 AM

You trust your insurer to take care of a claim when you have one.

At Progressive, we take care of your claimand can manage your repairs, too.

Just drop off your damaged car at a Progressive Service Center; you can even pick up a rental at the same time—saving a trip.
Go back to your normal routine; we coordinate the entire repair process and call you when you can pick up your car.
• A trusted shop performs your repairs—which are guaranteed for as long as you own or lease your car, even if you move to another state.

“I love how easy it was to take them my car, sign a couple papers and be given the keys to the rental that was right there waiting for me,” says a Service Center customer in Phoenix.

“To not have to do anything myself is worth being with Progressive.”

Right now, there are 54 Service Centers countrywide. And more are opening in other cities—starting with one in Silver Spring, Md., in February.

Progressive how-to: Finish riding, boating & camping season on a high note

Posted by Brittany Ritchey on 10/22/2012 at 4:00 PM

Turn the day you cover and lock up your bike, boat or RV into the foundation for another year of adventure.

Here’s how.

Update your insurance policy as needed.
Give your insurer a call, or log into your policy, to make sure you’ve got enough coverage for the off-season. Coverages like these may be even more valuable when your vehicle is in storage:

• Comprehensive/collision: Comprehensive covers fire and theft, as well as damage caused by storage roofs buckling or collapsing. We get a lot of these claims from boat and RV customers following big snow storms. This also helps protect you from the unexpected — like having a family of otters “move in” to your boat for the winter. (True story!)

• Bodily injury/property damage: If your bike, boat or RV catches fire while in storage, and the fire spreads, property damage helps cover repairs to the building or to other vehicles.

Shield your bike, boat or RV from the elements.
Thoroughly winterize your vehicle or vessel, following the manufacturer’s recommendations, so you’re ready to go in the new year. This can help prevent freeze damage and maintenance issues that your insurer likely won’t cover.

What else do you include in your end-of-season routine?
