Hello - my husband and I will be moving to VB in the summer, from Canada, for a 3 year military posting. We will require tenant and car insurance - are there better insurance companies to go through than others? Does anyone have suggestions for a good company where we can bundle both car and tenant insurance together.

Also, when purchasing internet, cable and phone is there one company better than others to deal with? I have heard Verizon is a good company which will bundle all 3 for a good rate - is Verizon good to deal with?

One other question, high schools (grade 11,12) are they all pretty decent in VB or are there ones that are better than others? With the school we are only looking at regular programming, no special needs or IB programs required.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Geico will likely be your best bet for car and tenant insurance in the Hampton Roads area. Huge military area=lots of Geico customers because Geico gives military members so many discounts. Check out Geico's website for a quote and go down the checklist of organizations you can get discounts for belonging to- like Navy Federal Credit Union. I recall checking numerous times while my ex DH was in the Navy when we lived in the Hampton Roads area and nothing could ever compete with Geico. Nonetheless, shopping around after you get to Va is the best option because your driving record, age etc may affect your result differently than what ours was.

Same goes to cable and verizon etc- call a week or two before your move and gets quotes (they are usually good for 30 days but be sure to check)

Kellam High School is known to be the best in the actual Va Beach area.

I have found Farm Bureau to have awesome insurance rates as well.
