CHICAGO, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Millions of Chicagoland residents have auto insurance, but 55 percent don't know they have an insurance score, much less that their auto insurance rates are most likely affected by that score.
Say Insurance™, an emerging online auto insurance provider, launched throughout the Chicago metro area today, delivers an alternative, more transparent way of dealing with insurance and the rate process. Insurance companies calculate and utilize the score in different ways, but it's rarely discussed or available to customers.
"Drivers today seek more personalization and control in their online experience when selecting an auto insurance provider," says Marc Deiter, director of Say Insurance. "Everyone deserves to have a say in the process, and they deserve clarity and transparency from their provider. Say Insurance fills a gap in the auto insurance industry with our transparent, clear and frustration-free approach, so drivers know exactly what they're paying and why."
Say Insurance discloses the score once you quote and makes it easy to understand how the score impacts its competitively-priced premiums. At sayinsurance.com, for the first time, Chicago metro residents can easily get their free insurance score and premium quote—without providing a vehicle VIN number or registering with a password.
As part of a bigger package, Say Insurance quote and premium rates are calculated by evaluating:
- The insurance score from LexisNexis®
- A motor vehicle report
- A Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (CLUE) report to claims submitted
- A personal risk profile based on specific characteristics such as age, gender, marital status, driving experience and household factors
Say Insurance is currently focused in the Chicago metro area, with market expansion planned for 2017. Say is a division of Shelter General Insurance Company, a company with 60 years of experience and reliability, making it possible to deliver a digital auto insurance product that is transparent, simple and convenient.
