If it feels like your car insurer is a vampire, there’s a good reason why.
It’s probably true.
In all likelihood, your car insurer IS a vampire. It’s just the balance of probabilities.
We don’t mean your friendly, local agent. We’re talking about the people at corporate, and the claim handlers you’re forced to deal with.
“They’re worse than Dracula,” says our experienced attorney and former insurance ‘insider’, Scott N. Davis.
In this short article, Scott explains the 6 reasons why your car insurance company is run and staffed by vampires – and how to avoid the horror of their deadly, blood-sucking fangs.
1. You never see them in daylight.
You might be able to talk to your car insurer during daylight hours, but when was the last time you actually SAW them in daylight?
Sure, you’ll get a daytime visit from a car insurance claims adjuster, but they’re actually independent contractors – they are NOT employed by your insurance company.
2. An encounter with your insurer makes you feel light-headed
When you get off the phone with the claims department at your car insurer, your head feels fuzzy. Ever notice that?
You feel light-headed, a little dizzy and somewhat off your equilibrium.
It feels like you’re not running on a full tank of juice.
And why? Because they just sucked some of your blood. That’s why.
3. Every employee of your insurer, pictured on their website, looks exactly like Christopher Lee
When you watched Christopher Lee played Count Dracula in all those movies, it sent a shiver down your spine. He was scary.
And all those employees working in corporate for your car insurer at look just like Christopher Lee. Look at their website and see their pictures, and once again, you’ll feel that shiver running down your spine.
4. They Avoid Garlic Like The Plague
If you’ve ever had to eat with an employee of an insurance company – something I’ve had to do as a former ‘insider’ – you’ll notice how bland their food is. They’re not big on seasoning, and they absolutely detest garlic.
You’ll never get a decent Italian meal from an insurance company.
5. No Mirrors
It’s not that they’re so incredibly ugly that they can’t bear to see themselves. It’s because they cast no reflection that you’ll never see your insurer anywhere near a mirror.
The problem is so severe, they’ve even removed all the mirror from their own vehicles. And somehow they’re driving in them.
6. Wooden Stakes
We don’t advocate violence at all, but when you’re dealing with the insurance companies, you do sometimes feel like having a wooden stake close to hand would be incredibly useful. As a stress toy. Obviously.
