DO NOT BUY INSURANCE FROM AVIVA

on 2018-09-19 11:50:42

Worst company to deal with when you submit a claim.
2 months since a car accident where the other driver was at fault and charged and I still have not received a penny for my vehicle which Aviva wrote off.
On July 27, 2018 I was involved in a car accident where the other driver came out of a side street and side swiped my vehicle. Police was called, and the other driver charged since he was clearly at fault. Police filed a report, and, in turn, I submitted a claim with Aviva Insurance same day. Found out other driver has same insurance company. Aviva wrote off my vehicle though damage did not seem extensive to me. They low balled the value of my vehicle ($8,000 CDN). I made an argument that it should be more ($11,000 CDN) and submitted repair/upgrade bills to make my case. They responded that they will investigate but also pressured me into giving up my rental car within 5 days after the accident though rental cost were way below what I was entitled to. I was subjected to 2 lengthy interviews by Aviva that were more like interrogations questioning the accident and costs. Asked for a detailed written report from me and asked for a witness signature, Commissioner for Oaths, which resulted in lawyer fees. Before I obtained the signature, I sent a filled-out form (that had no instructions) to Aviva requesting a review to ensure it was completed correctly so it would not be rejected. Review came back good. I got the signature and submitted the form. It was rejected within 3 days by Aviva. Reason: "said loss was caused by" should have said "Collision" while I wrote in "Improper left turn by other driver". I refilled it out and got a new signature which resulted in more lawyer fees. 2 weeks since I submitted and still no response. I phoned the Aviva representative several times. No response and left voicemails. It is now Sep 19 and almost 2 months since accident and no compensation from Aviva.
Next stage is to get a lawyer and start litigation.
I have had insurance from Aviva for just over 10 years and paid them over $60,000 CDN in fees and this is how they treat you when you make a claim, and not a large one at that.
I have since cancelled my cars insurance, house insurance and cottage insurance with Aviva.
DO NOT BUY INSURANCE FROM AVIVA.

The worst stay away

on 2018-09-17 15:33:18

First off they hate motorcycles!
The woman literally is telling me what bike I should be riding ?

I had a dual sport insured with them for a year with no claims no changes to my address or my license etc. and then the next year I had to reapply and they want double now ?

They won’t even insure my super sport at all?

I’m 54 with perfect driving record and get this I’ve been insured with these guys for 30 years !!!

Serious crappy management and what always happens when a company is bought out it turns to total **** !

When are insurance company is going to start facing their premiums on an individual not a number ?

Just because some jerk off rides down the 400 on super sport raising hell doesn’t mean that I’m going to?

I have a car or van house and a boat all insured with these guys ....and that’s gonna change ...Statefarm is way way better !!

Bunch of d***s

on 2018-08-29 09:29:05

Been with them for years. Got a letter saying that they won't renew me unless I do a new application and send it back to them. No claims or tickets. I don't understand. Never had a company ask me to re-apply.

Dishonest and unethical

on 2018-06-20 20:37:45

It's been over a year since the fire, my parents have been without a home and work has not been started yet. The preferred vendor gave up after chasing them for payment to begin work. Now I'm told I have to look for another contractor to provide a quote and start the process all over again. Meanwhile, my parents are on the verge of losing their home because they haven't received any compensation. What is the point of insurance if this is how they treat people when they need it. This can't be legal.
