POLL: Transit Insurance

I know insurance is a hot topic. Searching the forum has insurance info scattered all over — much of it possibly out of date?

I hoped a poll could bring the forum up to date and gather insurance info in one thread.

(I've never posted a poll before, so forgive me if I screw this up.)

I was hoping people could post what insurance company they were able to get for their Transits. Maybe give some idea of how expensive it is (and and other pointers, tips).

Geico, full coverage, $1060/year

Using available discounts (Also have Geico home insurance policy, non-smoker, college grad). When you have more than one policy with a company the rates go down for both.

Lotta variables. State to state. Different van models. Stock, converted or work van. One company might insure a particular van in one state, but, not in another.


I have Allstate, bundled in with homeowner. They insured it off of the VIN, never looked at the van, or asked anything but personal use.

Agree! This has become a complicated issue based on many algorithm factors. Insurance company computers now crunch a whole bunch of your internet public info, whether they ask for it or not. Don't be fooled by simplistic comparison charts.

No substitute for doing your homework on this. Your location probably makes the most difference. And your current credit score. And your driving history. And who else is on the policy with you. Eye color. Shoe size. Etc, etc.

I have GEICO for my cars — planning on getting a Transit soon (thus the impetus for the poll). A recent thread suggested GEICO is no longer covering Transits. I guess that has not been your experience though.

Agree, a poll of what other users has found is at least part of that homework. Granted it is going to vary from person to person. But, as I stated in my previous post, if GEICO or other is not covering Transits at all, then that should be useful info for everyone.

Progressive Commercial

$1,000/year

Liability $1,000,000
Uninsured $100,000/$300,000
Medical $5,000
Comp and Collision $2,500/$1,500 Deductible, $20,000 for attached upgrades like cabinets
Rental $50/days
Roadside Assistance

I have a clean driving record so this is going to be one of the lowest rates with this company in SoCAL.
I have gotten quotes from other companies and this was still the lowest.

Geico Personal
2017 350 Passenger MR 148WB
In Alabama liability coverage is mandatory, but Geico does not break down the cost of liability coverage by vehicle so with multiple vehicles I can't determine the cost for the Transit alone. What is interesting, tho, is I had a perfect driving record for 30+ years until I backed into a parked car in a parking lot in 2016 and Geico raised my premiums $400 a year since then. I'm pretty sure my car (not the Transit) didn't damage the parked car that much and I repaired my car myself because my deductible was more than the repair cost. If I had known then what I know now I would have paid to have the parked car repaired myself and not involved Geico.
