Farmers Fast Quote Service

Looking for super fast car insurance quotes? Farmers Insurance may have the solution.

In early 2009, Farmers Group Inc. and InsWeb Corporation (known on Wall Street as INSW) teamed up to provide Farmers Fast Quote (a combined effort through InsWeb’s AgentInsider Lead Program and Farmers’ leads and interactive website). In the following information, we will explain the basics of Farmers Fast Quote in more detail.

The Fast Quote service is designed as an interactive, web experience that compiles profile information to deliver homeowners, life and auto insurance quotes. The program enables Farmers agents to build a profile of any customer based on information provided by the customer. This quick list of questions requests information about the car (home or life) in question, which is needed to determine a quote and other personal information about the individual, as well.

Farmers Insurance, owned by Zurich Financial Services is based in California and offers insurance services to 41 states, as well as, Canada, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific. For many years, Farmers agents were able to utilize InsWeb’s AgentInsider leads, however this integration allows Farmers agents to provide more effective customer support and response tools in an efficient manner. Farmers agents have been provided with insurance leads from AgentInsider for nearly five years. The new system allows Farmers agents to buy leads from AgentInsider and deliver the information into the Farmers Fast Quote system, in order to provide fast, easy quotes for consumers.

The Fast Quote Service works instantly to provide potential customers with rapid information that is remarkably accurate. In the world of insurance, speed and accuracy are very important (especially concerning car insurance). Therefore, the Fast Quote Service is helpful to those who are experiencing a lapse in coverage (and need to get a quote, fast) or those who are pinching pennies and are looking for the best value.

The Fast Quote Service from Farmers requires the inquirer to enter information about them such as; their name, gender, email address and current home address to determine an accurate quote. To calculate a quote, (for home and auto insurance, only) Farmers may need to obtain a potential customer’s credit report to determine the rate amount. Additional information that is required involves info about any drivers who will be on the policy and information about the vehicle (make, model and year). The site will also ask questions to determine if the quote applicant (or anyone else who will be covered on the same policy) is eligible for any discounts. The site also provides a “Name Your Own Price” option, as well. In addition, the website allows consumers to look over independent research for various insurance companies as a comparison method to find the best rate.

The Fast Quote System works in the same way for consumers as it does for agents by compiling information based on other insured individuals (and their policy information) to provide potential customers with a fast, accurate rate quote for auto, home and life insurance.
