I recently got an invite to a car insurance event. I was very interested since I really have put a lot of money into my car. I also just changed my car insurance company because the last one was full of crap. I remember when I had some trouble back then, I called at around 5pm and I was already informed that they couldn’t help me. I felt I was just wasting my money by going with that insurance company.
Insurance Experts Agency claims to be the 1st online car insurance hub in the Philippines. They also claim to have partnered with insurance companies that are part of the top 15 in the country to ensure that our properties are in good hands. With that information in mind, I made sure that I attended the event to learn more and get specific details.
The event was attended by fellow bloggers, insurance agents who were part of Insurance Experts Agency and friends/family of the people behind the company.
I know it’s quite ignorant of me but it was the 1st time that I’ve heard of such a thing as an agency for insurance companies. As far as I know, the ones that we usually have agencies for are employment & travel. Apparently, there is for insurance!
Mr. Richard Ng, owner & founder of Insurance Experts Agency explained to us what his company does, its vision and what services it offers. Of course, he highlighted that they want Insurance Experts Agency to be the eBay/Google of car insurance in the local web industry!
It was back in October 2006 when Insurance Experts Agency was founded. Currently, the company handles all kinds of non-life insurance specializing in motor and fire insurances. They partnered with insurance companies that are in the top 15 in the country to ensure high quality service for their customers. These companies are: BPI MS, Maa Gen, Malayan, Prudential Guarantee, Standard Insurance, UCPB Gen.
I must admit, whenever I hear about insurance agencies, I just cringe. I feel they are way too pushy when offering their products and when it actually comes time that I really do need their service, they often forget about customer service, or forget about me altogether. Insurance Experts Agency, however, is different. They wanted to clear the notion about insurance companies being too pushy or not offering great service, since their goal is not the quota or the price but a long term relationship with its clients. The best evidence for that is that they provide 24/7 customer support. I’m impressed.
They took it a step further by launching www.insuranceexperts.com.ph. The 1st ever online car insurance hub in the Philippines. It offers the cheapest comprehensive car insurance in the market that fits car brand and address.
The thing that I most like about the website is that it’s simple. No more wasting time calling on the phone, explaining what is needed, the wait time for them to send a quote and some other time-consuming steps. We can do everything in less than 10 minutes.
For now, the website offers quotes for car insurance. I’m sure they’ll add more in the future. Here’s how it works:
- You choose the information of your car through the drop down menu. The year your car was manufactured, brand, model and bodily injury coverage amount. You can also choose if you want ‘acts of God’ included. If you remember one of the strongest typhoon (Ondoy) we ever experienced in the Philippines, those ‘acts of God’ option makes it more important.
- Once you’re done on the 1st part, you’ll instantly receive your quote. Like, in just one click!!! And I must say, the amount was pretty cheap. I’m paying Php 10,000 for my insurance currently. The quotation Insurance Experts Agency gave me through their website is way cheaper. I will take note of this definitely for my next year’s car insurance.
- Payment is also a breeze. You can pay via Paypal, Gcash or Smart money! PLUS, your insurance policy once you decide to purchase will be delivered to your doorstep.
At the end of the night, Insurance Experts Agency raffled off a Php 10,000 gift certificate for car insurance. Lucky Annalyn, she won!!
I love how a lot of companies are moving forward with technology. Now, things are much easier for us clients/consumers. Even insurance, I welcome this change and I hope to see more features soon on the Insurance Experts Agency website.
I’m sure you’ll love this news! Check their site out to try it out for yourself.
