In addition, the product features more deductible and business income choices as well as coverages such as identity theft, product withdrawal (manufacturing and wholesale), condo directors and officers, garage keepers broad form and many new optional coverages, he added.
“Despite a challenging economy, our Main Line BOP continues to sell very well in the markets where we have introduced the product,” said Henry Pippins, Main Street America’s vice president of commercial lines. Pippins said Main Street America has seen a rise in new written premium in all of Main Line BOP’s programs, particularly contractors, retail and restaurants.
Quoting and new business applications can be submitted for Main Line BOP via the company’s new Main Street Station for commercial lines quoting and processing system that features real time rating, automated underwriting and business submission, all from one central place.
