No, there is no negotiating. Each company files their mathematical formula for calculating rates (including the factor they use for accidents) with the state and it is carved in stone.However, every company has its own mathematical formula, so it might pay to shop around.Source(s):Claims adjuster

You can try negotiations. And check other insurance quotes.Next time, pay for the repairs yourself. Especially in 'minor' accidents.

This is standard policy across all insurance companies. They charge you a 10% surcharge for the next 2 to 5 years depending on the severity of the accident.

I am thinking of moving to a big city, from a small town in Alaska.. Any suggestions?
You probably can if you do things correctly, in the right order. Get your bills to a manageable level. Pay things off if possible. Be aware of what you are paying in interest. That is a budget killer- a ball & chain around your neck.It would be a good idea to research your city of choice...
