Is extended auto protection from Mercury Insurance Group a sound choice for this coverage? Consider the following points and draw your own conclusion.
Mercury insurance is not yet as well known of a brand such as Geico and Allstate in much of the country, but it soon will be. Californians, Texans and Floridans are well acquainted with Mercury as a low cost leader in auto and home owners insurance. Their presence is rapidly expanding through the rest of the United States. Mercury Select Management Company (MSMC), the administrator of Mercury's Mechanical Breakdown Protection products, regularly earns an A rating from A.M. Best. The company has 4 billion in assets so you know there will always be resources to pay your claims.
If you buy a vehicle protection plan from Autopom or one of our competitors, you are trusting that in your time of need the company will be there to serve you fairly. Mercury has been in the business since the 1970's and has sold and administered hundreds of thousands of contracts and policies. Try and find another company that has been in this business that long. It's a very short list. For many of these years the product has been sold though financial institutions (banks and credit unions) who are very serious about customer satisfaction and quality. Unlike virtually any other company you may find that Mercury goes way beyond putting its name on the contract.
