Proactive Solutions to Insurance Renewal Challenges in the Current Market
Navigating a Distressed Insurance Market
The commercial property and liability insurance market is in distress. This environment has led to underwriters being overworked, resulting in delays in the insurance renewal process. These delays pose serious challenges for businesses, especially when they result in last-minute renewal quotes combined with unexpected rate increases.
The Impact of Overworked Underwriters
One of the primary issues in the current market is the extended timeline for receiving renewal quotes. With underwriters overburdened, many businesses find themselves receiving renewal information dangerously close to their renewal date leaving little to no room for companies to make informed decisions or seek alternative options.
Last-Minute Rate Increases
A particularly pressing issue is receiving a renewal quote just a day before the actual renewal date, accompanied by significant rate increases. An increase of 20% or more, presented at the eleventh hour, forces businesses into a corner with few options. This scenario is becoming increasingly common, leaving companies scrambling for solutions.
