Argo Marine Launches Contractors Equipment Express

New product provides instant quotes without requiring a schedule of equipment

HAMILTON, Bermuda – January 8, 2020 – Argo Marine, a member of Argo Group International Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: ARGO), an international underwriter of specialty insurance and reinsurance, has launched Contractors Equipment Express, a streamlined rate, quote and bind platform for smaller risks. The system provides instant quotes without requiring a schedule of equipment and generates policy materials automatically.

“This process is extremely easy and efficient from start to finish,” said Dave Higley, senior vice president, head of Argo Marine. “We distilled the quote process to five key questions and made it very simple and quick for a broker to input the required information. The forms are preloaded, and the broker receives an immediate policy as soon as they submit the information.”

Contractors Equipment Express will cover a broad range of contractors’ equipment, such as nail guns, backhoes, trenchers, hand tools, saws and many other types of equipment, up to $2 million total insurable value. Insureds may include landscapers, electricians, plumbers, masons, framers, HVAC contractors and many others involved in the construction process.

In addition to instant quote letters and the ability to bind with the click of a button, Contractors Equipment Express offers standard and enhanced coverage options. For more information about Contractors Equipment Express, please visit:
