This is the worst service of company I've ever experienced in my entire life. There is an exception to this as after the people started ignoring my calls and I could not get to a person and that whole department, I called and a random lady in an IT health department did her best to contact someone that could help. I still have yet to have my claim finished I cannot reach anyone. It is been almost 2 months since the incident happens and the first thing company people try to give me not even an 1/8th of the Lost property, and when I disagreed they became very rude and evasive. Before iI researched the company as a whole I was convinced there was some shady dealings happening internally and I'm still not convinced that there is not. I technically didn't didn't even sign up with QBE! I have progressive and I was unaware Iwas bale to choose the underwriter. I contacted progressive for help and was basically told it's not their problem after they still did t respond. finally about 3 weeks later they send a guy to meet me in person from enservio and he was very helpful;l but now its been weeks since that and I still can't reach anyone but answering machines and agents that send me into limbo. I am am feeling more violated then the actual armed robbery! never get involved because not knowing that one little detail with progressive has caused me hours upon days of turmoil. Im s student so am working with little as it is so when a 4.7 billion dollar company treats you like garbage because they want to keep the equivalency of pennies fr them they will ruin another's life without a second thought.

Hail storms since thanThe storm in March of caused severe damage to percent of our community, percent of the houses on my block alone have had their roofs replaced do to damage, our fences are laying on the ground and QBE says that's not damage? Our AC unit is damaged beyond repair and they refuse to fix that as wellThey continue to give me the run around andI need them to fix our damages
