In some cases quite a lot. They paid the claim and dropped us. The way
they did it, getting insurance again at a rational price ( < 5X what we had
been paying) was a major pain. We did find a rational company and have
been very happy with them for 40 years now. Each time the guys who
dropped us call to get us to switch, I tell them the story ….
