If you are a landlord, business owner, or property investor, you’re probably familiar with having to deal with your commercial insurance. While it can be a nuisance to deal with (and, let’s be honest, it’s probably not your favorite part of the job), insurance is an inevitable part of owning a property. While there are many parts of insurance that can be frustrating, one of the more common questions that I often receive is, why do I have to wait so long to receive insurance quotes? It can be very frustrating to have to wait for something that, at least in the personal-lines department (the department that takes care of your personal homeowners, renters, auto, etc.), can be turned over within a day. Sometimes, personal lines quotes can even be completed while you’re still on the phone with the agent!
In this article, you’ll learn why the quoting process can take longer, and the follow-up question that we’ll also be answering in this article is this – okay, so is there anything I can do to speed up the quoting process? Good news! The short answer is yes!
