My own (positive) GMAC experience.

I needed some fairly basic liability insurance quick and GMAC fit the bill. It is currently running me about $42 a month right now for 6 months up front on a $50k/$100k plan. Not too bad given I was having difficulty finding anyone else to cover the bus, let alone cover it quickly so I could pick up the darn thing. Nationwide turned me down hard, as did others eventually. Unless, it was suggested, I went to some form of ghastly expensive commercial plan.

Once time comes I've put some serious funds into the bus and get to actually use it proper (Rather than keeping it in the field!), I will be revisiting the insurance options available for generous coverage. Given how helpful and upfront GMAC has been so far, I certainly hope to stay with them when that time comes around. After my discussion with agent about my future needs, there certainly seems justification for some optimism.

Anyhoo, that's my two bits.

Re: My own (positive) GMAC experience.

Before you fork out the buck for the more expensive insurance, you might want to talk to the insurance agent about the odd of the insurance company paying out. We only want minimum insurance. It's been my experience that Insurance companies do not pay out. They didn't pay out what they were supposed to for our house that burned. They didn't pay out when some idiot hit our Cadillac (I hate Nationwide). They depreciate everything and then tell us our stuff is worthless. So why would I pay for higher insurance premiums.. I don't have it on anything else. So for the bus,we will run minimums and stick the "premiums " in the savings account. I'm not a big fan of insurance companies. They rank right there with lawyers, cops, drug dealers and doctors.

It might be better, however, that a discussion of the evils of insurance as a whole be taken to another thread. I had only wished to express my recent satisfaction with GMAC.

Re: My own (positive) GMAC experience.

So far it seems that GMAC is the only outfit offering Liability insurance on skoolies without canceling the policy out shortly after issuing. Anything more and I believe you are at risk to be canceled. I wasn't knocking GMAC. I was just pointing out that you need to make sure you fully understand IF you will truly be covered.


If your bus gets swallowed by a whale... I want to see pictures!!!!

Fair enough! ...As for the pictures, I expect the agent will asking for those as well.

"While it is an impressive whale, I do not see your bus." "...but..."

Been with GMAC for about 4 years under basic covreage.Only put about 20,000 on it'I think'.

I understand though that you want whatever you can get if something happens.
