Well, Kelly called me this morning. Tho I think it could have been handled a little better, She had some unforeseen (and unknown to me) problems on her end too and handled them as best she could. If we had it to do over we would both probably have handled it differently. She did work very hard to resolve all my issues, and in a very professional way.
In the end, I am convinced she is committed to servicing the needs of our BB community.
I would recommend calling her for your RV insurance needs.

Glad to hear you got it worked out. I switched to Blue Sky last year and it was painless and saved me a lot of money with an agreed value policy to boot.

I was about to suggest that maybe Kelly doesn't speak Oklahoman......
(couldn't help myself)

Third year renewal 2/2014, always painless.
It would be beneficial if anyone would be able to share a claim settlement detail.

We're in our third year with Blue Sky with Thum Insurance out of Grand Rapids, MI as our agent. Have had one claim, handled by the insurance company professionally with no hassle. Rate did go up after accident.

Bill,

When I got a quote from, Blue Sky it was twice Allied's price. We concluded it was somehow due to being in Michigan. Did you register in Michigan or Florida?

I have also been talking with Kelly Brake at Blue Sky and got our policy in place today. Did I mention we are flying into Clearwater tomorrow to pick up our Bird?

I found her very nice to deal with. The price was way less than State Farm. They will accept the bill of sale for the agreed value coverage. I will check with John about getting an appraisal to be on the safe side.

So, when I was first talking to Kelly I asked her if she knew of an appraiser in the Clearwater FL area. At that time I thought I would have to have an appraisal before I could get the agreed value coverage. She said she did know of a guy in IN. The was a pause and I chimed in "John McGinnis". She paused for another moment and said why Yes. So John, I guess you fame is spreading.

Thanks to all for recommending Blue Sky and to John for talking up the agreed value coverage.

Ron,
I see you directed your question to Bill but ours is titled/registered in MI with very competitive rates from BluSky.

Default Blues Sky Insurance rate hike almost doubles my cost for 2015

Yesterday I received my 2015 renewal notice for my M380's Blue Sky Agreed Value Insurance Policy. The cost has almost doubled from the amount I paid for 2014. No explanation was provided and they haven't returned my call. I did not file any claims, have any accidents or tickets and did not request any changes from my 2014 policy.

Anybody else seen a similar increase?

Mine renewed in September and the increase was only around $30 / yr.
