Within the last few years, and now more than ever in 2020 during the coronavirus, people are turning to the internet to find quotes or information regarding their insurance, and while this is probably fine for Auto or Home insurance, it becomes a whole different ballgame when quoting a Trucking Company! An online tool does not have the experience, insight, or an ability to go in-depth into your company like an agent can, and you might want to think otherwise when using an online tool for Trucking Insurance!
While I can see the appeal of getting online and controlling the outcome of the price and coverage, it comes with a heavy downside—with these tools you don’t really have the opportunity to give the full picture of what your Trucking business does or what kind of coverage you will need! With many of these online tools you do not know if you are receiving the best price possible, or if there will be any coverage gaps with the coverage you are quoting! Talking with an agent will help you navigate through this process and help you get insured at a reasonable price without the confusion!
Most online quote tools also do not have the ability to help you through the full quoting process or give you their insight as to what trends they have notices themselves! While the idea of quoting Trucking Insurance online is very enticing, it might be best in this situation to pick up your phone and speak with an agent to find the best fit for you! With something as important as Trucking Insurance you should not leave anything to chance!
