BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Plymouth Rock Assurance, the customer-first, data-driven home and auto insurance provider of choice for the Northeast, announced today its home and auto insurance coverage is now available to residents and agents in New York. This marks the first time the 37-year old insurance company has offered insurance in the state.
Plymouth Rock’s home insurance is backed by the expertise and rock-solid financial strength of the Plymouth Rock Group of Companies, which write and manage over $1.4 billion in premiums. Few competitors offer the broad coverage or high level of customer service that Plymouth Rock provides its customers. Plymouth Rock is also set apart by its promise to provide exceptional service to customers and treat them with courtesy.
To that end, Plymouth Rock also launched a new revolutionary digital product for homeowners in New York to protect their properties, @Home™ by Plymouth Rock. Independent insurance agents and homeowners can now receive home insurance quotes and purchase a policy through @Home™ in less time than it takes them to make a cup of coffee.
Anyone who has obtained a home insurance quote and purchased a policy has endured the lengthy and agonizingly confusing process that has been the industry norm for decades. Traditional insurance carriers require customers to answer dozens of questions that few people know offhand – like the age of the roof and the percentage of carpeting. Homeowners often receive inaccurate quotes because the data collection relies heavily on memory and guesswork. The experience discourages homeowners from ever shopping for a new policy again, leaving millions of Americans either without the protection they need or overpaying for coverage.
@Home™ revolutionizes the traditional home insurance quoting and buying process using technical innovations that provide fast quotes for virtually every home address in the six states in which Plymouth Rock operates, without the need for lengthy questionnaires. In most states, the home’s address alone is all agents and homeowners need to obtain a quote. Agents and homeowners are also able to customize coverage options based on their individual needs. Further, customers can feel secure working with an enterprise that has over 35 years of experience writing and managing home and auto insurance in the Northeast.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer residents in New York our comprehensive home and auto insurance coverage,” said Bill Martin, who leads Plymouth Rock’s home insurance business. “Up to now, consumers have approached home insurance with the same enthusiasm they have for a root canal. We’re taking a data-driven approach to pricing and removing the friction from the experience. As such, we’re enabling independent agents and homeowners across the Northeast to get a quote and coverage quickly and with confidence. Because it takes just seconds, there is no reason why homeowners shouldn’t consider @Home™ by Plymouth Rock.”
“My personal lines manager, Stacy, could not believe how fast and easy it was to quote @Home™ by Plymouth Rock. It was two clicks and she got a rate,” said Mike Villano, principal at New York-based Ovation Risk Planners, Inc. “The easy quoting process gave her extra time to talk to our customer about coverages and options. I am impressed with Plymouth Rock!”
In addition to New York, @Home™ is also available in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. For more information or to obtain a quote, visit www.plymouthrock.com.
