Cheap Car Insurance in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Grand Rapids is the top spot in Michigan for craft beer, atypical art, farm-to-table restaurants and cheap car insurance. With a population nearing 200,000, Grand Rapids is historically an office furniture manufacturing center and is still known by its nickname, “Furniture City.” Its economy has since diversified, but it remains a leading city for office furniture production, including computer stations and ergonomic chairs. Built on the banks of the Grand River just east of Lake Michigan, it has also earned the nickname, “River City.” Eastown is its hip, walkable neighborhood on the east side, and the Downtown Market is another popular mixed use district. ArtPrize is its large and unusual art competition taking place each year from late September to early October.

Unique Laws in Grand Rapids

Outdated Michigan laws prohibit cursing in front of women and children, though it is unknown whether women and children can be charged if they are the guilty party. The laws also state that the Star Spangled Banner must be performed as an “entire and separate composition without embellishments,” so medleys involving the National Anthem are out. Thankfully, the Michigan code continues to be enforced regarding duels, which are basically a gunfight between disagreeing parties. Michigan residents also may not scalp steamboat tickets or put deformed humans on exhibit except for scientific and medical purposes.

    I called on behalf of a claim made by one of his insured, asking for a claims adjuster. I left a message and Keith returned the call only to yell at me asking why I didn’t state the reason for calling when I left a message with the secretary. He said “”I can’t talk to 4 people at once, you should have told the person calling why you called.”” He basically preceded to treat me like an idiot and said he would turn my number over to an adjuster.
    Wow, we deal with insurance companies all the time. I have never been treated so rudely. I certainly will not refer anyone to this agency.

    My mom’s house burned down 6 months ago. Total loss. Took 9 weeks to get a settlement. After that, the agent promised to be on top of the situation and get her bills paid and have the second half of the settlement paid out. All I get are excuses. The agent left to some other state to deal with the floods, they’ve lost my paperwork, etc……. I’ve even spoken to Bob Nederveld and he’s made promises. None have been kept. I an EXTREMELY disappointed with their services and I would not recommend them. I’m tired of calling them every day and not getting anywhere.

  • Kacos Insurance Agency

    I tried to find a rating less than ‘awful’, like HORRIBLE! I have been with Kacos for nearly a decade if not more. In fact, my mother was with them first. I have never been so unhappy with a company that is supposed to be looking out for my best interest. They changed my insurance carrier without my prior permission stating it will save me money! When I had questions, I received a less than informative response. They never notified me that someone was coming to my home to do an inspection afterwards. So I get a random call from someone I had never heard of wanting access to my ‘box’. It moved from my ‘box’ to the water heater, to the furnace and so on after the person had access in my home. Finally, we get a so-called courtesy call from Kacos saying we have to do some repairs by March!!! Whoa! So, this is going to save me money! Note to Kacos; when you have a client, you make them aware of what they potentially may expect (i.e., a call from the insurance carrier wanting to do an inspection, the possible results of the inspection and how that may affect you and so on). I hoped to discuss the issue and offer possible solutions with Kacos. So, I decided to drive all the way out to their office to discuss my issues face to face. But apparently I am not very intelligent and cannot speak for myself or do not understand what it means to be a client. So every time I opened my mouth, the more intelligent lady in the office spent our dialogue having a monologue TO me. I patiently waited for her to finish her rebuttals and tried to get a word in, to no avail. To date, I have not heard back from them to resolve my issues. In fact, they have not even contacted me to find out ‘what my issue is’. That is a problem with me. Unlike some others, I rarely contact the office. I pay my premium in one single payment so there is very little interaction with the office. So I FEEL LIKE A NUMBER! I have not heard from a single person from Kacos. Apparently, business must be going very well for Kacos. They are not concerned with losing a client. I am researching now to find a replacement. I am sure another Insurance agency can use my money. I can give someone else my money for BAD SERVICE. If anyone asks me about an insurance company for consideration, I will be sure to mention my recent experience with Kacos. I TELL YOU WHAT IS INTERESTING IS THAT I SENT SCOTT A COPY OF MY REVIEW (9/18/2011) AND HIS ORGANIZATION HAD NOT RECEIVED A REVIEW SINCE 2005! NOW OUT OF THE BLUE, TWO ADDITIONAL REVIEWS SHOW UP. REALLY SCOTT? YOU HAD TO FIND A CLIENTS TO ADD REVIEWS? IF THE SERVICE IS SO GREAT, WHY WOULD YOU NEED TO SOLICIT REVIEWS. THE SERVICE AT KACOS IS NOT LIKE IT WAS WHEN HIS DAD RAN THE BUSINESS HANDS DOWN!!! HIS DAD CARED ABOUT HIS CLIENTS AND BUILT HIS BUSINESS ON RELATIONSHIPS. NICE TRY SCOTT BUT PEOPLE IN WESTERN MICHIGAN ARE SMARTER THAN YOU THINK. I POSTED MY REVIEWS ON SEVERAL SITES TO WARN PEOPLE OF WHAT THEY CAN EXPECT IF THEY DEAL WITH YOU. (9/24/2011) and Scott is still having customers add reviews??? You can listen to people that recently switched to Kacos or you can listen to someone that has been using Kacos since before Scott took over. I have history on my side. A credible agency would not need to call clients/friends and ask them to post reviews. I review positively or negatively without being requested to do so. I finally heard back from Scott only because I emailed my review as a courtesy. Still there was no apology for the lack of service, disrespect and there was no admission of wrong. To date, he has not explained why he did not want to meet with me. Only, ‘tell me what you want me and I’ll SEE what I can do’. When I explained everything to him, his response is to have clients add reviews. SO IF YOU ARE SHOPPING FOR AN INSURANCE COMPANY, ASK YOURSELF IF THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT FROM YOUR AGENT?

Auto body shops Grand Rapids, Michigan

Swapping your high heels for a pair of driving shoes can help you qualify for affordable car insurance by avoiding accidents and getting "safer driver" discounts.

It's easier to get discounted car insurance with a car that has a high safety rating than one without one.

When you are looking for car insurance, ask if the insurance company offers a policy where they forgive the first accident.
