Vince Ovecka's office is a pleasure to deal with. I've been a customer for a number of years and have always gotten great rates and, more importantly, great service! I highly recommend using Vince's office for all your insurance needs! more

Vince Oveka saves the day 2/5/2012

I crashed my car Saturday. This is my story about Vince's office. Vince has been my agent for about 8 years now. I met him when I was buying a home. He now carries it all for me - home, life, car. I also referred him to a few friends. Vince has provided the most personalized Insurance service I've ever dealt with in my life. Everyone pays for insurance and wonders what they're getting for it. On the day to day stuff, he saves me money, and once, called me just to offer me a lower rate. A LOWER rate! Proactively! Now, on to what we care about - when you're in an accident. I crashed my car Saturday, which led me to write this. The first call I made was to 911, then to Vince. When he called me back, he proceeded to negotiate a deal for me with the collision center, handling every step. He got me the rental car - all lined up, and is now negotiating with the at fault driver's insurance company. I guess my point is, I'm not a number to Vince, and would heavily recommend him to anyone. My assumption is that whomever is writing the negative reviews has some personal vendetta, or maybe flexing internet muscles. I'm a real customer, with real support from Vince. If the rest of the insurance business held your hand like Vince does, the industry wouldn't have a bad wrap. Over and out. more

State Farm Vince Oveka's office is a joke. 11/16/2011

Hello, Please be very skeptical about doing buisness with this office. I had 2 vehicles and my home insured by this company for over two years. I never put in a claim nor did I ever have a accident. The team they have working there are very uneducated people. They hound you to insure everything you own and want you to take out life insurance policies and disabilty policies but when you apply you are turned down for a illness that is not your fault nor did you ask for. They need to have well trained medical professionals working there that know about illness not regular a idiot who does Not have a f&^$#ing clue! You are treated like a leopard from them. Everyone gets sick so don't think you will be elimated from illness either. Imagine that! People in glass houses should not throw stones. Remember this... You never know what will come to your own front door.! It amazes me how these idiots there especially "" Joe"" will assume this or that about a illness but has not a dam clue! Just because people get sick does not mean they will be turning in claims left and right. Sorry I work every day and I am not one of your low life neighborhood people that collect insurance for B$@@%S$#T reasons that I am sure you insure with no problem. I hope those people suck your company dry! Bottom Line................. IF YOU BECOME SICK DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT CONTACTING THIS COMPANY FOR ANY KIND OF HELP SINCE THEY HAVE NO CLUE ON WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT AND THEY WILL DISCRIMINATE AGAINST YOU! NEXT I WILL MAKE SURE TO CONTACT ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE DISABLED AND ESPECIALLY NEWS STATIONS SINCE THIS IS A INDEPENDENTLY OWNED COMPANY THAT MR. OVEKA WANTS TO DENY PEOPLE INSURANCE POLICIES THAT NOTHING MAY EVER HAPPEN TO JUST BECAUSE A CARD THEY WERE DEALT IN LIFE. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO FEEL WHEN THEY ASK WHAT KIND OF ""NEIGHBOR"" ARE YOU? ""LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR STATE FARM IS THERE"" ISN'T THAT THE SLOAN YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO LIVE BY? ISN'T YOUR COMPANY BASED ON THIS SLOGAN??? DOES A GOOD NEIGHBOR DISCRIMATE AGAINST PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO CONTROL OF A SITUATION?WELL SINCE YOU LIKE TO ADVERTISE LIKE HELL LET'S SEE HOW MUCH PUBLICITY YOU AND YOUR COMPANY WILL RECIEVE ABOUT DISCRIMATING AGAINST PEOPLE. LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR MY ASS!!!!! ....YOU NEW SLOGAN SHOULD SAY "" LIKE A THIEVING NEIGHBOR IF YOUR SICK STATE FARM WON'T BE THERE."" more

Stay Away From Vince Ovecka 12/23/2010

We were a customer with state farm for years. Trusting their service and trusting we were getting a very competitive rate. In those years they never offer not even a candy. Here is why we went with another company. We were insuring two vehicles for over two years. One of the vehicles went down with a bad engine sitting in a mechanics bay for months. The very first day the car was diagnosed, we called state farm to inform that the car was inoperable and to take it off the policy (to save money (why pay the second premium on a car with a bad head gasket which i knew it was not being driven nor repaired for a couple of months). state farm requested the miles of the vehicle to make a note on the file as of why was being pulled from the policy. The miles were provided and supposedly they took it off the policy. The following months they kept billing us for the two cars which was not fair in my belief. I did my research, not to mention my experience in the automotive industry with other insurance carriers and i found out they were supposed to honor my request to remove the vehicle. They kept billing us for both cars. Not only that. On the one vehicle we kept in the policy, I decided to shop around and compare prices only to find out i was being overcharged more than $70.00 dollars a month for the one vehicle. Like a good neighboor State Farm is there to ripp you off. The comparison I did was using a declaration page from state farm so I can say it was apples to apples. same coverage for 70 dollars less a month. I had just made my payment 2 days before my comparison and decided to call state farm and cancel my policy. They said they will send a check for the non use of premium let me explain. My payments were made in advance on the 28th of every month. I made a pmt on the 28 and on the 1st of following month cancelled policy. they had more that 26 days of premium of my money, called the agent and he stated that state far will issue a check for non use of premium due to my cancellation. Finally the check arrived to my surprise it was a five dollar check. Yes $5.00 check. Then I called back and they treated me like i was not a customer anymore. Very different than the very first time we met. So, please if you are considering obtaining insurance, please stay away from Vince Ovecka's office (215) 739-0800 456 East Girard Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19125 They will ripp your heart out. more
