Whitby, ON, January 31st, 2024: To help Canadian contractors get fast, competitive insurance rates, Quotey is delighted to announce it has expanded its commercial insurer marketplace to include the Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company (Wawanesa) and Wawanesa Insurance’s contractor’s insurance product.
Effective today, Wawanesa broker partners using the Quotey platform will receive instant, comparable insurance quotes for their contractor clients. Brokers will receive fully bindable quotes for a wide range of contractors including landscapers, plumbers, electricians, flooring contractors and many more – all supplied through a connection to Wawanesa’s suite of APIs.
“Wawanesa is a trusted partner for insurance brokers across Canada and continues to take meaningful steps to make it easier for brokers to work with them,” said Quotey CEO and Co-Founder, Nick Kidd. “We’re thrilled to be part of their journey of digitization and help brokers access their products in seconds, rather than days and weeks.”
Contractor’s packages are the first of several Wawanesa products that will be available on Quotey in early 2024. Additional solutions for retailers and professionals will follow together with a broader scope of functionality to make the experience even better for brokers.
“Contractors are busy, and so are commercial brokers,” said Wawanesa’s SVP & Chief Operating Officer – West, Graham Haigh. “That’s why we want to make the process of getting the right insurance coverage fast and easy. We’re investing in new tools, such as Quotey, that allow us to get competitive quotes to brokers in moments – helping us provide great service, saving people time, and furthering Wawanesa’s growth in the Canadian commercial insurance market.”
Quotey launched in 2022 in all provinces except Quebec – where it will be available in 2024 – and is Canada’s first multi-insurer commercial lines quoting and cover comparison tool for brokers. The platform only costs $10 a month per user and allows brokers to complete a single digital application for over 700 classes of business and get instant comparable quotes from a growing list of participating insurers like Wawanesa Insurance.
