Traditionally, homeowners who want to get an estimate for home insurance have to answer a lot of questions, fill out a lot of paperwork and then wait for a quote. Confusing questionnaires and time-consuming phone calls, just to get a quote, can frustrate consumers.
But a new product is a game changer.
With the new online quoting tool from Plymouth Rock Assurance, consumers can simply enter their address, select coverages, discounts, and a pay plan. Thirty seconds later, a home insurance quote is ready. Harnessing the power of data from trusted, publicly available sources, Plymouth Rock has developed an innovative solution for a fast and simple quoting process, taking much of the burden off of the customer.
“A lot of different companies require a lot of things but Plymouth Rock is so easy to deal with,” says Steve Barrick of Barrick Insurance in Hanover, Pennsylvania. “You give them an address, they pull up all the records on the house, they give you roughly what it’s going to cost to replace the home. They’ll give you a price on it, they’ll give you the coverage for your home, for your contents, loss-of-use if something happens to your home, like a fire. It’s an easy, easy process with them.”
This fast and easy quote process takes the burden off of the consumer and empowers them to make home insurance purchasing decisions.
With this new product, homeowners can now choose to conveniently and efficiently buy home insurance on their terms, either for themselves online or over the phone, or directly from a licensed insurance agency.
“They make it so easy, especially when time is short,” says Jamie L. Maerz of The Insurance Man, Inc., who explains the product saves a lot of time that’s typically spent asking questions to the consumer and researching information like replacement costs.
The new homeowners insurance product was first launched in Pennsylvania and is now available in New Jersey. Next, it’s expected to launch in New York and other states in the Northeast. The Plymouth Rock Group of Companies together write and manage over $1.4 billion in annual auto and homeowners’ insurance premiums, has over 35 years of experience, and is growing across six states in the Northeast.
Plymouth Rock focuses on customers’ needs like convenience and satisfaction by giving them multiple options to do business. A customer can shop for home insurance using a mobile device, online at plymouthrock.com, by phone, or in person with one of their authorized agents.
The home insurance quote and buying process is typically lengthy and can involve lots of detailed questions, inspections, and underwriting steps. Often in the end, prices change after multiple underwriting reviews and customers are frustrated.
But Plymouth Rock wants to make it fast and easy to get a home insurance quote and buy a policy. Their new tool makes it easy for homeowners to get a quote in seconds, and buy a policy in minutes.
Bill Martin of Plymouth Rock’s Home Insurance Group says only 12 percent of homeowners shop for a new policy each year. He and his team want to streamline the process to make it easier and more transparent.
“Many of our competitors collect data to prove their insurance applicants’ answers wrong,” he says. “We use the data to make customers’ lives simpler and avoid playing ‘gotcha.’”
Their home insurance products include flexible coverage options like home-sharing coverage designed to protect homeowners and renters who use home-sharing services; utility service line coverage to protect against damage to underground pipes or utility lines between the home and the street; home systems protection to insure furnaces, air conditioners, and refrigerators when they break; and identity-theft resolution and prevention services.
Barrick says this new tool is a fit for modern consumers’ buying habits.
“Nowadays people look for immediate gratification,” he says. “They want the answer now.”
