On Saturday, I made a visit to my local AAA branch to finalize my new auto insurance. The company providing my insurance will be Libery Mutual for about $1,500. Geico came back to my with a price several hundred dollars higher, and that might be a blessing considering some of the company’s negative reviews.
If I had not switched insurance companies this weekend, I would have had a $500 insurance bill due this month; instead I will begin monthly installments of about $125 on July 1.
