Default Save on your homeowners insurance through a forum member!!

After reading a thread yesterday about homeowners insurance someone recommended "turtle" on the forum. I have been calling around getting quotes the last couple days and everyone was quoting me the same as I currently pay.

After less than five minutes on the phone with forum member Turtle he had me a quote saving over 30% of what my current insurance is. He also recommended me to forum member "bullshark" who I called in reference to wind mitigation. Bullshark is giving me a forum discount to come out and inspect my home. Bullshark's inspection could save me a couple hundred more dollars on the final quote.

Even if you are happy with your insurance for homeowners, do yourself a favor and spend 5 minutes on the phone with these guys and let them save you some money. I am glad I did. I will update with the final savings after my inspection on Thursday! Thanks Turtle and Bullshark!

Turtles Office number is 862-8644..Give him a ring :letsdrink

i agree with water hazard....i was very happy with my insurance company until i went to refinance my home...to my surprise i was paying an extra $2000.00 a year for my happiness.



well let me tell you this i am even happier with my new home owner insurance company and $2000.00 a year in my pocket.



i wished i had known turtle and bullshark were in the business.



so do as water hazard has said...check your rates to turtles and see if you too need to change!!!!!

Thanks for this! The people who will save the most are people who have a big named insurance company. And if you don't want to leave one of the larger companies the wind mitigation inspection I do will save you $ regardless of the insurance company you have. With that being said why pay so much more for the name when you could pocket a lot of $ for the same or more coverage. I don't sell insurance I just do mitigation inspectionsso that is justan opinion from a consumer. I switched to a independent agent and my bill went from $1750 to about $900 with more coverage. Ofcourse I also provided a wind mitigation formwhich helped that along.

If you don't get the wind inspection you either don't know about it or are a fool. It saved me about $700/yr. Most of the insurance co. won't tell you about it unless you ask.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">I had a quote of app $1,300/year and then when I had the wind mitigation report done the cost went down about $400. Well worth it.

The inspection is also good for five years. So pay for it once and save for five years on your insurance before you need it again...

I second Bullshark's wind mitigation inspection, it saved me some serious $$ on my premium. Pay the man and get it done, you won't be sorry!

I live in Mississppi and State Farm just cancel my wind coverage. Does anyone know of who's still selling complete home owner's policies. Also does anyone do the wind midigation inspections over this way?

It's alway just a fraction of the savings the first yearbut I do give forum members a $25 discount. This forum has done nothing but good things for me so it's only right.
