      Hartford Home Insurance, August, 2013

      One claim processed in a speedy, professional manner. Courteous service rep. Significant increase in rate for 2014.

      Raised Rates for No Reason, March, 2013

      We are leaving Hartford. We just got a letter stating that they were raising our rates more than 25% for the second year in a row. No reason was given. We were with them 6 years and never had an accident. The quotes I'm getting for other companies is less than half of what Hartford is charging. I'm very disappointed in a company I felt was a quality company.

      AARP Ripoff, March, 2012

      I am 61 years old. I drive less than 2000 miles per year do to health and easy access to shopping. I never drive during rush hour nor at night. I haven't gotten a parking ticket nor an accident in 25 years. The Hartford raised my rates by 30% after the first year. Why? "Because I live in Maryland". Yes this is the truth and their reasoning. Yet,AARP sponsors them????

      Late and Lousey Coverage, February, 2014

      It took ten days for Hartford to get and adjustor out to even look at the car. Once they did, it took so long to get the paperwork for payment that my car rental expired, my car sat ready for pick-up but Hartford had made no payment. A sorry example of customer service and care.
