MassDrive’s CEO Interviewed about New Technology in Agency Checklists!

In the competitive insurance industry, here at MassDrive we compete with our commitment to technology and customer experience.  After our recent announcement of the debut of our own proprietary online quoting tool, Agency Checklist became intrigued.  They interviewed our CEO Bill Suneson to find out how this independent agency uses the power of the internet to drive its growth and success!

Bill Suneson, founder of MassDrive, opened his agency in 2009 at the start of “Managed Competition” precisely because of the benefits that he believed auto insurance deregulation in Massachusetts could bring to independent agents. And while many agents bemoan the arrival of direct writers in the Commonwealth, MassDrive welcomes the competition, believing independent agents actually have the upper hand over direct writers.

Why have your agency sell insurance online and by telephone only?

We believe consumers want to be able to buy online and do so conveniently. Consumers expect technology and that is what they are asking for. Studies show 71 percent of consumers shop online with most getting a quote in three different places. While some customers are still going to walk in to a traditional storefront [to buy insurance], the growth and opportunity is in getting to consumers shopping online.

Your latest has been the MassDrive online quoting tool, how did that come about?  

Consumers in other states have been able to compare rates online for several years and our mission has always been to provide MA drivers with the same opportunity.  Utilizing Boston Software’s comparative rater, we built our own API over their carrier rating engine to better manage and control the consumer experience.  Boston Software has been a great partner in this initiative and we could not have done it without their support and innovation.

Spotlight On: Christine Rojcewicz!

chrissy

We have some very exciting news in our office!  One of our very own employees has been nominated as a Massachusetts Association of Insurance Agents 2014 CSR Star!  Christine Rojcewicz, or Chrissy as she is known around the office and to customers, started at MassDrive in July of 2013, and came to us with no experience whatsoever.  Since then, she has quickly learned the ropes and become an invaluable part of our team!  She handles every phone call with professionalism and grace, and always remains calm no matter what situations arises.  We wanted to take a few minutes to chat with Chrissy and find out a little more about her and her job as a CSR rep.

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite thing about my job is the customers. I love to help others, and being a customer service rep is all about helping others! I really enjoy working together with our customers to find the best solution to any problem, no matter how complicated. I love a challenge!

What’s the hardest thing about your job?

The hardest part of my job, particularly my role as a retention specialist, is explaining tough rate increases to customers. I place great importance in being certain that the insured truly understands their coverages and any reasons for premium changes. Often, the cause of the rate increase is ambiguous, but I always try my best to clarify the specific reasons for the increase, or decrease, not just quote a price without an explanation. Insurance rates are not black and white, and it is important to me that the insured is comfortable with the insurance they are receiving and the reasons for the cost.

 What do you think it takes to be a good customer service rep?

To be a good customer service rep, one needs to have patience and  perseverance. This job is not easy, but it has the potential for fulfillment and forming great relationships. It takes a lot of patience and humility to remain calm and cooperate with a difficult customer, but when the experience is positive for the insured, it is positive for me as well! The feeling I get after finishing a particularly successful call is very rewarding.

 What’s the key to dealing with an angry customer?

Dealing with angry or upset customers can be very difficult, but the key is to empathize. I try my best to put myself in the customer’s shoes and see the situation from his or her point of view. Often, when I do so, the reason for the customer’s frustration and anger becomes apparent, and I can better assist them.

What do you wish all of your customers knew?

I wish all my customers knew how difficult being an insurance customer service representative can be, and I wish they knew just how far a simple “thank you” really does go. My coworkers and I love nothing more than to share with each other when insureds are grateful and provide positive feedback. Often, a little appreciation can turn my whole day around!

In addition to answering phone calls, keeping up with paperwork, and so much more, Chrissy also implements our Renewal Readiness Program™, which monitors our customer’s policies that are about to renew, and will re-quote them if there is a significant increase in price.  She always goes above and beyond to make sure our customers have the most pleasant experience possible, so we’re wishing her the best of luck in this contest, no one deserves it more than she does!

Is Competition In The Insurance Industry Benefiting Massachusetts Drivers?

car

In 2008, the auto insurance market in Massachusetts was deregulated resulting in major changes for both consumers and insurance carriers alike. As more carriers began to write policies in the state, prices initially dropped.  However, prices have since rebounded and now closely resemble what consumers were paying before the industry was deregulated, according to data from the state Division of Insurance.  The question then arises; Is competition in the industry actually benefiting Massachusetts residents?

Recently, an article titled “Auto Insurance Rates Bounce Back Up In Mass.” was published in the Boston Globe.  The article was written by Deirdre Fernandes and she tries to determine whether or not consumers are benefiting from competition in the auto insurance industry by studying year-to-year comparisons of auto insurance premiums.  Before deregulation, insurance carriers typically had the same prices and offerings for their consumers, prompting larger carriers to avoid writing policies in Massachusetts due to the strict regulation of the industry.

After the deregulation, larger carriers such as Progressive and Geico began writing policies with extremely low premiums, forcing established carriers to lower their prices in order to maintain their business.  Since then, prices have risen as these larger carriers have become more familiar with paying out claims in the state. However, it is important to note that according to Fernandes’ article, repair costs and medical costs (all of which factor into claim payouts) are increasing faster in Massachusetts than across the nation as a whole, which also affect premium prices.

In her article, Fernandes quotes Deirdre Cummings, legislative Director of the Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group who said “If you look at rates and rates are going higher, that’s not in the consumer’s favor.”  Fernandes also plays devil’s advocate by acknowledging the fact that because insurance carriers are no longer regulated, they are able to offer unique services to their customers such as roadside assistance and specific discounts relating to bundling policies together, good student discounts, annual mileage discounts, etc.  Fernandes then quotes Massachusetts Insurance Commissioner Joe Murphy who says “It’s clear that the change in regulation has been a win for consumers”.

While Fernandes does address both sides of the argument, Joe Murphy takes issue with her analysis and wrote a response to her article.  In it, he states “Year-over-year comparisons of auto insurance premiums do not provide a sound foundation for commentary about rate levels or the general health of the insurance market.”  Essentially he argues that the increase in competition gives consumers the power to shop around if their premium does increase, making carriers compete for their business.

The competition also encourages insurance carriers to keep their own profits down so that they can keep premiums as low as possible.  In his response, Murphy says “In the five years prior to 2012, auto insurers in Massachusetts reported virtually zero profit from underwriting, the lowest of any New England state during that same period.”

One of the most important things to take away from both articles is that while insurance premiums may be about the same as they were before deregulation, consumers now have options and the ability to shop around if their premium does go up.  The power is in the hands of the consumer, and they are able to purchase policies not only based on price, but also based on coverage, available discounts, additional services, and much more.

As an independent agency, we are proud to work with many top-rated insurance companies including Commerce, Plymouth Rock, Arbella, Progressive, Safeco, Travelers, and Occidental.  We give our customers options when it comes to purchasing their policy and are unbiased in the quotes we provide. Our goal is to find Massachusetts residents the policy that is right for them.  So, if you’re looking to compare auto insurance rates in Massachusetts and find the best policy for you, get a free quote at MassDrive.com!  Our insurance agents are extremely knowledgeable and will work to find the policy that is right for you!

It’s National Dog Bite Prevention Week!

dog bite

Did you know that May 18th – 24th is National Dog Bite Prevention Week?  Did you also know that according to the Insurance Information Institute, dog bites accounted for more than one-third of all homeowners insurance liability claim dollars paid out in 2013?  The average cost paid out for these claims in 2013 was $27,862.  No one wants to deal with a disaster such as this, not only is it traumatic for the victim, it can also be traumatic for yourself and your family.  In order to avoid these situations, we’ve come up with some tips to prevent you from being bitten, and to prevent your dog from biting.

  • Make sure your dog is properly socialized at a young age.  It’s important that they interact with other dogs as well as people so they learn how to properly act.  Under socialized dogs may bite out of fear when approached.
  • Be cautious when exposing your dog to new situations where you are unsure of how they will react.
  • If you own a dog that can be defensive, make sure there are signs posted in your yard warning visitors to “Beware of dog”.
  • Avoid aggressive games such a tug-of-war, it can encourage inappropriate behavior, fetch is a much better option.
  • Make sure your dog is always leashed when walking them outside.  If you allow your dog to run outside, make sure it is inside a fenced enclosure.  Putting them on a runner or behind an electric fence will keep them in your yard, but won’t prevent humans or other animals from approaching your dog.
  • Never leave young children alone with a dog unsupervised.
  • Teach children to always ask for permission before approaching an unfamiliar dog.
  • Never approach a dog you don’t know without asking it’s owner for permission.  Some dogs may react differently than others and may even feel threatened, especially if you’re on their property.
  • Do not disturb a dog if it is sleeping, eating, playing with a toy, or caring for puppies.  They may interpret you as a threat and react on instinct to defend their territory.
  • Pay attention to body language, if you come across a dog with a tense body, raised hair, a stiff tail, bared teeth, and especially if they growl at you, avoid eye contact and slowly back away to put some space between you and the dog.  Whatever you do, do not turn your back and run, as their instinct will be to chase you.
  • If a dog that appears tense does approach you, stand very still and avoid eye contact, try to toss an object away from you so that the dog will go investigate.  That should give you enough time to slowly walk away without provoking the animal.
  • If your dog does being to display aggressive behavior, consult your veterinarian or a behavioral specialist immediately.

We all hope to never encounter a situation where our dog bites someone or we are bitten, but sometimes it happens.  These tips are a good way to avoid such situations, and to keep your family and your dog as safe as possible.

Save On Auto Insurance When Your Child Goes Back To School!

save

If you’re the parent of a young driver, you know how expensive it can be to add them on to your insurance policy.  Until drivers reach age 25 or have 6 years of driving experience, they are considered to be “inexperienced drivers” because they are more likely to get into an accident which is why adding them to a policy can dramatically increase the premium.  We know what you’re thinking, “If they’re going back to school and not driving a car, there MUST be a way to save on my insurance.” and you would be right!  If your child is going back to college and won’t be driving a car while they’re away, there are a few things you can do to lower your premium.

  • Drop them down to an occasional driver – If your child is going to school miles away and does not need a car while on campus and won’t have access to yours on a regular basis, list them as an occasional driver.  What this means is that they will not be the primary driver of any of the insured vehicles on your policy and it’s an easy way to save money on your premium.  This is also a good solution in case your child decides to come home for a long weekend or spring break and wants to borrow your car; that way they will still be covered on your policy.
  • Remove them from your policy – If your child won’t be driving a car at all you can choose to totally remove them from your policy.  This means that they will not be covered to drive any of the vehicles on your policy at all.  This will save you the most amount of money and is a good idea if your child is going to be away for the majority of the year.  If they do decide to come home for the summer and need to drive, you can always add them on to your policy again, it’s a simple change request that won’t take up much of your time.
  • Student Away At School Discount – If you don’t want to remove your child or drop them down to an occasional driver,  look into the student away at school discount.  Most carriers offer a 5%-10% discount if your child is away at school, although whether you are eligible or not depends on how far away their school is.  The majority of carriers require the school to be at least 100 miles away to receive the discount but it varies, so be sure to contact your carrier and find out if you’re eligible.
  • Good Student Discount – Parents, if there were ever a time to encourage your kids to make the grade, it’s now!  The majority of carriers offer a good student discount, meaning you can typically save 5%-10% on your premium if your child meets the carriers requirements.  Typically, they require students to be full time and have a minimum GPA of 3.0 to be eligible, although this also varies from carrier to carrier.  All you have to do is send in your child’s transcript and the discount can be applied.

Keep these tips in mind when your child is going back to school, they may end up saving you a significant amount on your premium!  When it comes to the student away at school and good student discounts, they can vary from carrier to carrier so be sure to give us a call to find out if you’re eligible and stay safe this back to school season!

Do College Students Need Renters Insurance Or Does A Homeowners Policy Provide The Right Coverage?

move in

Are you a parent sending your child back to college in a few weeks?  Whether they are living in the dorms or renting an apartment, we know they are going to need a lot of supplies and that you want them to be protected!  So, how exactly would you go about that?  Insurance is a great way to protect not only their belongings, but also their liability in case of a loss.   Insurance can be confusing though, when it comes to knowing what kind to get and how much it will cost you, there can be a lot of questions.  If you have homeowner’s insurance, it may extend the coverage to protect your child while they are away at school but that varies from carrier to carrier so call and find out for sure.  If your homeowner’s policy won’t extend their coverage, then you may want to consider renter’s insurance for your child.

If you’re not familiar with renter’s insurance, insurance expert Bill Suneson was nice enough to explain a lot of the things you need to know, which have been summarized  below.

When a student moves into a residence hall, typically the terms of the housing agreement make it clear that the school is not responsible for stolen or damaged person property.  Further, the student becomes personally liable for any damage caused to the dorm or residence hall. The same applies to most rental agreements if a student moves into an apartment off-campus.  Without the proper insurance, students and families can incur a significant financial loss if they cause unintended damage to their residence or suffer a loss to their personal property.  For example, if someone breaks a window or steals some of your child’s personal property from their dorm or apartment, without insurance they would have to replace those items or repair the damage with money out of their own pocket.

Renters insurance is an easy and affordable way to protect a student’s personal property against theft, water damage, fire, etc.  It is not uncommon for a laptop computer or bicycle to be stolen from a dorm and most low deductible renters insurance plans would provide a quick replacement.

Another benefit?  A renters insurance plan protects students if they are personally liable for causing damage to their residence.  Colleges or landlords will promptly bill students for their portion of the loss. Just think about how easy it is to inadvertently triggers a sprinkler system if there was a small fire from cooking in their kitchen.   These things happen all the time, and without the proper coverage, students may find themselves with a hefty bill.

Renter’s insurance is a great resource and will allow parents to sleep soundly knowing their child’s belongings, and financial future are  protected.  Yes, most homeowner’s insurance policies do extend coverage to students when they are away at college. However, parents should review their policies closely before a student leaves for college as some policies may have certain limitations.  For instance, policies may limit coverage to students attending college full-time or living on-campus.

However, most homeowner’s policies have high deductibles and families are unlikely to file claims such as a $500 bike theft because the payment would not exceed their deductible.  Also, home insurance rates are increasing and filing small property or liability claims generally result in higher rates for the family over time.

With deductibles as low as $100 and most premiums less than $150, renters insurance is usually both valuable and affordable for students even though some coverage may exist through their parents’ homeowner’s policy.  As a parent, spend a few minutes going through your homeowner’s policy and decide with your child if renters insurance is something you want to invest in.  You may decide that your homeowner’s policy is enough and you don’t want the extra coverage, but after thinking about how much your valuables actually cost, you may decide that renters insurance is right for you in which case be sure to give us a call for a quote!

Wondering How You Should Spend Your Tax Return? Put It Towards Your Insurance!

tax return

Who doesn’t love getting a nice check back from the government after tax season? Although it may be tempting to head to the mall for a shopping spree or buy that TV you’ve had your eye on, putting your tax return towards insurance is a smart choice that may save you a lot of money in the future!  Believe it or not, the more you spend up front, the more you can save!

If you have a few extra bucks after tax season, call up your insurance agent and ask what your options are.  They may suggest increasing your coverage, which may in turn lower your monthly payments!  Although you would have to pay more out of pocket if you were to have an accident, you could put your tax return in a savings account just in case you ever needed to pay out your deductible.  If you don’t end up getting into an accident or using your deductible, you have that much more money in the bank, not to mention all of the money you would likely save on your monthly bill.  This sounds like an all around win if you ask us and applies to both auto and homeowner’s insurance!

Depending on how big your tax return is, you could even pay off your homeowner’s or auto policy in full!  How great would it be to not have to worry about a monthly payment for the entire year?  Not only would you be worry free, you would also get a discount for paying the policy in full!  This discount varies from carrier to carrier but typically you can save up to 5% off your premium.

Another thing you can put your money towards?  If you have a pet, why not invest in their health and get pet insurance!  Your furry friend deserves to be protected should they be a little under the weather, after all, humans have health insurance so why shouldn’t animals?  No matter how much we love our pets and look out for them, anything can happen.  They could get loose and get hit by a car, or even develop a suspicious tumor that needs to be checked out, whether they’re young or old, your pets should be covered.  If you haven’t been to the vet’s lately, it’s extremely expensive for each visit, even a simple problem such as an ear infection can run you up a few hundred dollars, for about the same price (depending on your pet’s age, breed, etc), you can cover all of your pet’s health needs for the entire year!

When it comes to insurance, the more you spend up front, the more you can save in the long run!  If you find yourself coming across a big chunk of change after tax season, give us a call at MassDrive!  If you already have a policy, talk to us about increasing your coverages, and if you don’t currently have a policy, give us a call and get a quote!  We also offer pet insurance so all members of your family will be protected!
