I can't tell you how many times someone will call into the office and ask me to quote their home, auto, or business but won't be willing to tell me how much they're currently paying.
I get it, we've been raised on the notion that an insurance agent is like the slimy car sales man we see in the movies.
The truth is, I work hard to find the right coverages AND the best price for my prospective clients and need to know what you're paying because I don't want to waste your time if I can't get a better price for you.
Additionally, if it's a business quote you're asking for, you run a higher of chance of getting a better price by SHARING your current premium.
You see, I submit your application to an underwriter who typically gets 40-50 quotes a day on their desk. When the price is on the application, the underwriter quickly knows if they can find something better for you AND it will entice them to try and beat the price you are already paying so they can win your business.
As we, the agents at Front Range Insurance Solutions shop for our clients we seek to find the right coverage AND price for you.
Sharing your current premium helps us to do that.
