I was pretty flabbergasted to find out that I’ve had no car insurance since February.I’ve driven A LOT since then, and only found out at the tail end of a 4,000 mile trip. I can type the whole thing out, but I recorded the entire thing, which is way funnier. A word of caution, I curse a bit in this In fact, it goes a little like this: Traveler’s Insurance can go fuck themselves! Anyways… here’s the recording of me telling a friend the whole thing.
Since then, I’ve gotten insurance with Flo… er… Progressive Insurance, but it cost me $1,450 instead of $990, as I did not have proof of previous insurance.
I’ve also paid the state of Georgia their $25 for their efforts in telling me that my registration will be suspended…. so now my registration is safe. I did have to call in to speak to someone, as they have a lot of things that you can pay for to many different departments… the form says “You can pay online at” – but it doesn’t tell you what this falls under. No biggie.
Now, I can bitch and moan about Traveler’s screwing me over, or my insurance broker not calling me to tell me they had a hick-up and couldn’t run the payment…. but in the end, everything is our own fault. I should’ve had my mail checked more frequently.
To make sure this never happens again, I am checking out two services… if you’ve used ’em, I’d love your feedback: http://paytrust.com/ and EarthClassMail — here’s their video:
