According To The Shimps
Meet our long time policyholders—Fred and Erika Shimps of Indiana, PA.—who’ve been with GEICO for 43 years. We chatted with the Shimps to hear what they had to say about GEICO.
Why GEICO at the beginning?
"In 1966 Fred was assigned to a tour of duty in Germany and we needed an auto insurance company that would stay with us during our move. A friend recommended GEICO and we've been with them ever since. We even kept GEICO when Fred served a second tour in Germany in 1971."
Why GEICO now?
"We've always been treated so nicely and our rates were always good. Any time we've had to make a claim the adjuster always comes within 24 hrs and takes care of everything. We always feel like we matter. We would never leave GEICO or switch to another company—we love it!"
Favorite Advertising Icon?
"I love them all, but I'd say definitely the Caveman. Fred and I love the commercial where two cavemen are at a party and one of them is talking about getting back together with his girlfriend. It's so silly!"
